Have your bangs become a bit of a burden? You’re not alone. This style requires a lot of mane-maintenance. If they’re growing out at an alarming rate, we suggest learning how to snip them yourself. Celebrity hairstylist Angelo David of Angelo David Salon in New York City shares a few simple foolproof tips on keeping your fringe looking fabulous at all times.

  • Step 1: Starting with dry hair, section off a triangular section in the front, starting an inch or two from the crown of the head.
  • Step 2: Using a fine-toothed comb, evenly gather hair in the front, letting it fall on the temples.
  • Step 3: To create a blunt bang, hold hair taut with your fingers and slowly cut horizontally across, cutting a quarter inch at a time. (Make sure your scissors are sharp to make this process seamless and concise.) To create a wispy, textured look, twist the hair you’ve sectioned off a few times and hold it taut between your fingers. From there, begin cutting the ends at a 45-degree angle.
  • Step 4: Don't cut too much at once, and stop to check your work in the mirror regularly. You can always do additional trimming, if needed.
