How to cut side swept bangs

Want to try out new types of bangs without a visit to the salon? Here’s how to cut side swept bangs! In addition to some sharp scissors, you will need patience, a steady hand, and the correct technique. The key to getting the length and angle you want is to cut hair dry. Another tip is to cut bangs extra long and go shorter and try different angles as you gain confidence and skill with cutting bangs yourself at home. These side swept fringe pictures show how there are many variations – from wispy to curly to full. Keep reading for three ways to wear the look and a how to cut side swept bangs tutorial.

How to cut side swept bangs

Start by parting hair to one side (tip: line up the part with the arch or one eyebrow). Now sweep bangs to the side the way you want them to lie and then comb them forward over your forehead before cutting. Use your fingers to find where to cut the fringe – where it sits to the side will be different to when it is hanging straight down. Pick out key points on your face so you can connect the dots when you cut – from mid eye to mid cheek to the bottom of the earlobe for example.

How to cut side swept bangs

To begin cutting, hold the scissors at the brow with the tips pointing down towards the nose. Then cut vertically, snipping choppy pieces while moving downwards at an angle from the eye to the opposite ear. This vertical cut will add flattering texture that works well with bangs worn swept to the side. Don’t worry about getting the lines perfect because the choppy cute will hide any errors.

To ensure you’re happy with the results start by cutting hair longer than you actually want. Carpenters say measure twice, cut once but fortunately you can cut hair more than once. Try cutting bangs from the cheekbone to the jawline and wear it for a week to see how the fringe lies and works with your everyday hairstyles. You can keep refining the cut as you gain more skill with the technique and figure out the exact shape and angle of side swept bangs that works for you. Now, enjoy your new look!

It is super easy to cut side bangs at home – saving time and money at the salon! 🙂

How to cut side swept bangs

Start with DRY hair (if it is wet you will cut bangs too short) pulled back, leaving out the pieces you want to cut. Include some longer side pieces to frame your face.

How to cut side swept bangs

Separate the main part of your bangs from the side bits, in the front. This doesn’t have to be perfect, but should come from your side-part and be about 2-3 inches wide.

How to cut side swept bangs

Diagonally lay your finger across your hair where you plan to cut (you will cut at an angle) and hold against your face to imagine length. Leave your finger here and pick up scissors.

REMEMBER: Cut your hair so that it is LONGER than you may think you want! Wherever your finger is, move it down about half an inch. You can always cut again if it’s too long, but you can’t un-cut it!

How to cut side swept bangs

Hold your scissors at the same angle your finger was (move your finger away) and cut across. This will leave a blunt edge that we will fix in the next step, but gives you your length.

How to cut side swept bangs

Holding scissors straight up and down, cut into your bangs to soften the ends. Move your scissors up and down to vary the length of hairs, and don’t overdo this: only cut until the ends are less blunt

Onto the side bits! Hold them next to your face to judge evenness and where you’d like them to fall. Right around jaw/chin length is usually good. Remember your measurements!

How to cut side swept bangs

Do what you just did with the main bangs: cut at an angle, then cut vertically to soften. Be careful on the last step as you have less hair to work with, and could cut too much!

Side swept bangs can both be an asset or a disaster, depending on how you cut it. A lot of women are obsessed with bangs as a way to hide a large forehead or to add flair to their boring hairstyle. To ensure that it will not be a nightmare, you should know how to cut side swept bangs for the first time. Below, I listed some tips and a step-by-step guide to succeed in your first side-swept bangs.

How to cut side swept bangs for the first time

How to cut side swept bangs

Step #1. Comb some hair to the front

Just like with any bangs, you have to direct some hair forward. After that, grab the hair in the front and comb it well, ensuring that it’s separated from the other hair before you cut. You only need the hair that falls right where your eyebrow starts. Push the rest of the hair and tie it back. Do this on both sides of your face.

Step #2. Hold the hair

First, comb the hair well to make sure it doesn’t have snags that will affect the length. Hold the tips of your hair using your index and middle finger. Imagine you’re holding a dollar bill in between.

Step #3. It’s time to cut

Take your haircutting scissors and snip the hair diagonally. Side swept bangs are only good if you cut them diagonally, so make sure that you keep this in mind. You can start cutting just a quarter of an inch then trim it bit by bit until you reach your desired length. Take note that you should cut diagonally on the same side of your dominant hand that you’ll use to sweep it.

Always check the length in the mirror on every snip so you won’t cut too much than what you intended. If your bangs are still longer than what you like, keep trimming.

Step #4. Touch-ups

After you reached your desired length with a diagonal trim, hold your hair just the same but mid-way. Next, hold the scissors vertically and cut little parts of your bang’s tips. This will add texture to your bangs while preventing it from looking blunt.

Step #5. Sweep it to the side

After finishing these steps, you’re finally done! Just sweep your bangs to the side and see if it has the right length that you want. Feel free to repeat steps 3 and 4 if you want to shorten your bangs a bit. Remember, do so little by little so you wouldn’t cut too much length.

Do you need more guidance? In this video, ROSEBUD shows us how to cut side swept bangs the right way:

Tips in cutting your bangs

Always get the right equipment

Using paper scissors for your bangs will produce rough and inaccurate cuts. If you’re dedicated to styling your own hair at home, I recommend buying a pair of hair cutting shears for the job.

For home haircuts, you don’t really need a very expensive pair of shears. Just make sure that you have a sharp pair that will cut your hair like butter.

Straighten it first

Before you reach for your scissors, straighten your hair so you will have a more accurate length. Also, never cut your bangs when wet because damp hair looks longer than the normal, dry hair. This will make your side-swept bangs look awful.

Go slow

It’s easy to make mistakes if you keep snipping without checking it first. For successful haircuts, I recommend stopping after two to three snips then combing your hair to see the actual length. This has saved me from disastrous bangs in the past, and I still swear by it, no matter what haircut you’re doing.

Never cut the entire length in one go. I’ve seen DIY bangs online where they tie their hair and snip it with scissors. It will not turn out good. You should always go slow and in increment lengths.

Line your hair perfectly

When sectioning your hair for the bangs, make sure that you line up where your bangs start from your scalp. This will ensure that you can cut an accurate length and that your hair won’t look messy after cutting side-swept bangs.

Always tie your hair back

Before you start cutting your bangs, make sure that the rest of your hair is tied back. This will prevent you from accidentally cutting portions of your hair that are not included in the side-swept style. I’ve seen a lot of disastrous haircuts just because the person won’t secure the other areas of the hair not included in the haircut.

Leave it alone

Do your side-swept bangs look a little off? Just leave it alone for a few days. Letting the hair fall on its new position will make your side-swept bangs look more natural. However, if it doesn’t even out after a few weeks, you may need to ask the help of a stylist. You may need to perform touch-up cuts to remove any excess length.

Don’t weigh it down

One of the biggest mistakes when sporting side-swept bangs is weighing it down too much. It gives the ‘cow-licked’ look that doesn’t look good. Always comb it and maintain a nice lift. You can use some hairspray or volumizing spray to keep your bangs looking natural. However, avoid making too stiff, or it will look and feel awkward.

Prepare for it

Cutting your own hair is a big step. And to ensure that you won’t regret it, I recommend doing your research. Ask your hairstylist or consult a friend who has done it in the past. If this is your first time cutting your bangs, don’t expect a salon-quality result. Also, I don’t recommend cutting your bangs if you’re about to attend or go to a big event. Should your haircut fail, you won’t be panicking to find a fix.

Conclusion

Knowing how to cut side swept bangs for the first time is a tricky task. I’ve had my share of haircut fails, but it’s in the practice that I’ve mastered DIY bangs. Again, go slow and be prepared for the result. Invest in a good pair of shears and do your research.

Great video thanks!!

You did a great job demonstrating cutting your own bangs. I’m a licensed cosmetologist and just wanted to give you some of the terms for the techniques you used. When you cut up into the bangs, it is called ‘point cutting’ and it will texturize them; taking a little bulk out so they aren’t so heavy and the same length. Great job! One of the best tutorial on this subject I’ve seen!

Any tips on styling them? I can never get them to lay nicely…..help please

If you try straightening them downwards toward your nose then sweep them sideways this usually helps (:

I just watched your video and tried this method and it worked out PERFECTLY! This is the way I had my bangs for years. I completely grew my bangs out and had it that way for a year, but when I missed them and wanted them back there was no stylist that could cut them the way I’d had them in the past. You have just made my life so much brighter with this tutorial! I love your blog, you are a joy to watch 🙂 Thank you!

Thanks, Amy! I’m so glad it worked out for you! ((:

I just googled “cut side-swept bangs” and opened up about ten different link in tabs. Your video was the first thing I watched, and I was like, “Ok. Let’s just see what the others are like.”

After looking at all the other pages, I had to re-google “cut side-swept bangs” to find your page again. Perfect tutorial 🙂

Haha, I love it! Thank you for letting me know!

This was awesome! I just finished cutting my bangs using your tutorial and it was so EASY and it looks great! Thank you!

Yay! I’m so happy to hear it, Sarah (:

this was terrible I did not work.

Seriously, seven (yes, SEVEN) professional hairdressers/senior stylists later….I followed your tutorial exactly and my bangs have NEVER LOOKED BETTER. I could kiss you right now if you were standing next to me.

I swear I had walked into hair salons before and said “I will pay any kind of $$ for the best of the best, most senior stylists, whoever… whoever can PLEASE cut my bangs so they don’t look like Edward Scissorhands did it” And every single time I walked out with a total mess on my face! Never again. I will cut my own bangs exactly the way you showed us here for as long as I live, LOL Needless to say – THANK YOU.

P.S. those who didn’t have amazing results following this tutorial, if I had to guess I would say you used the wrong scissors. Get professional scissors, specifically for hair (you can get them at Sally’s, cheap). But it truly matters.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you.

Thank You so much Melissa! I have tried several types of bangs and had several different people cut them, but I always hated it, but I don’t like having no bangs either. I followed this tutorial and it has been several weeks now and I LOOOOOOVE them! For the first time ever I love bangs on me!

Keep up the good work. You’re awesome! 🙂

Could you post a list of different kind of bangs and their names.
I’m sure lots of people would benefit from it.
Thanks!

You are adorable! I loved this video and can’t wait to give your method a try. Thank you!!

Oh Melissa, you are the best!. I shall give this a try and watching your video, I felt braver now :). You’re very pretty too. Thanks so much. HUGS.

Thank you so much! This was super helpful.

Thank you! Finally had a chance to cut my bangs and I love it!

You. Are. Amazing! This method works perfect. Thanks !

You seem so nice! This looks very helpful. Thanks!

You seem so nice! This looks very helpful. Thanks!

Yes, PLEASE show us how to style your bangs. I dream that one day my bangs will look just like yours 🙂 Thanks!!

Thanks! I’ve been trimming my bangs for a while and I’m going to do it your way today.I can never style mine awesomely. Can you do a video on how you STYLE your side swept bangs? Or is the secret in the cut?!

Ah, this is SO helpful!! I have extremely long hair, and wanted something that would let me have a longer bang (mine falls under my chin, even after cutting). I just did your method, and it looks great!

sue noorda says

Thanks for this tutorial. last Feb. my bangs got too long. I just grabbed the scissors, pulled my hair up and whacked them off. Oh my gosh, what a mistake. My bangs were totally uncontrollable. I went to a hair dresser the next week and she tried to fix them but they still are stupid. They curl up and look ridiculous. I wish I could get them to grow out so I can fix them but my hair only grows about 1/4 inch a month. This will take forever. Thanks for the video. I’m going to do this from now on.

thanks for this tutorial! i trimmed my bangs for the first time today using this as my guide! it didn’t come out as disastrous as my husband was expecting it to be. :))

christie cook says

Thank you I have been trying to do something new instead of straight bangs but not knowing how to get them to the side. When i go to get them cut they dont understand i am trying to get them to grow out some! Thank you loved your tutorial very sweet!

Just found your tutorial on pinterest. Thank you Thank you! I’ve been looking for something like this. I know I can trim my own bangs but didn’t know how to do the sideswept bang. You did a great job of explaining!

This may have just changed my life. I, too, am always growing out my bangs and then cutting them. When I re cut them, the stylist takes several tries to get them the way I want. I just ran up to my bathroom and tried those and PERFECTION! Thanks you! You have another loyal follower on Pinterest.

I tried this (thanks for the post) but it didn’t turn out as nicely as yours. But perhaps that’s only because I have never cut my own hair before and feel that people can see that I did it myself.

Fortunately I moved on to the tutorial for braiding you bangs so I could hide my bad haircut 😉

Thank you so much for this. I tried it and my bangs look great. Loving your Blog. 🙂

I tried this and it totally rocks. Thank you so much I am really enjoying your blog. 🙂

I love the way my bangs turned out! Thank you so much, great job!

It’s called over-directing. You did a great job. 🙂

I just tried this because the last time I got a haircut they didn’t cut it short enough. It totally works! Thank you so much!

Love this, those swept bangs look so gorgeous on you! Can’t wait to watch the video!

Thats exactly how I cut my bangs… the only thing different is that I cut mine so they are the legth down to my upper lip as I part my hair a bit lower.

You are the cutest! I love this tutorial. my sister has used this same technique on my bangs in the past and it absolutely works!

You’ll never guess what I did yesterday – cut this exact fringe into my daughter’s hair!! Now I’m off to neaten it up following your FAB tutorial. Thank you!!

i wish i had your skills when it comes to hair! mine is. SO. boring! ;P

How to Cut Your Own Bangs: DIY Side Swept Bangs

Step 1. Set Your Hair

Start by combing back the hair on your crown. After doing this, push the rest of your hair back and tie it into a ponytail. Once you’ve gotten it out of your way, comb the section you’ve designated as your bangs in front of your face.

Tip: Straighten your hair either with a straightening iron or a blow dry before cutting so you know your hair length and tell exactly where your bangs fall.

Step 2. Determine the Length of Your Bangs

How to cut side swept bangs

Using a pintail comb, determine where your bangs will start and end. Hold the comb vertically and locate the arch of your eyebrow — this is where your bangs should start. Do the same thing on the other side to determine where they should end.

Tip: Use the tip of your pintail comb to make a straight wedge up your hair from the hairline. Do the same to the other side of the bangs and along the top part of your bangs.

Step 3. Work on Straight Hair Lines

After sectioning out the beginning and end of your bangs, even out the top. You’re essentially looking to create a rectangular shape. Make sure the wedge on your bangs is only 1-2 inches. You can make your bangs ticker according to your style, but the ideal measurement is 1 to 2 inches max.

Step 4. Tie Your Back Hair Into a Ponytail

If the sides and top of the bangs are already even, tie any stray hairs into a ponytail. This will prevent the hairs from falling back down. Comb your bangs again.

Step 5. You’re Now Ready for The Cut

Now you’re ready to cut! Hold your bangs and give it a twist then hold on to it to keep it in place.

The reason for this is, we want to make the cut look more natural. Once the shortest piece of hair, the centerline, is twisted, the longest one gets twisted over. The longer the hair wraps around, the longer it will be after the cut.

This twist-and-cut technique is for the right-handed where the left hand can do the job of keeping the hair in place while the right-hand does the cutting. This avoids any disastrous situations by ensuring the entire section of your hair isn’t cut at an angle. We instead only want to cut small sections at a time, not the whole thing.

Step 6. Redistribute Your Hair Evenly

How to cut side swept bangs

After twisting your hair, comb the bangs down and distribute them evenly in your grasp. You will have to cut at an angle from the right side downwards.

Step 7. Cut Your Hair by Section

Time to make the cut! Use professional hair cutting scissors and hold it at an angle as shown below. Cut the hair slowly and make sure you open and close the scissors in every cut. Doing one cut is a big no-no; little cuts are always better. This is especially for those who are learning how to cut side swept bangs for the first time. Cutting your own hair can be nerve-racking so it’s always best to cut (if possible) a few strands of hair at a time.

Step 8. Cut at an Angle

After doing the sidecut, comb the bangs down again, but this time, split them evenly into two parts. Hold the left side of the bangs down with your scissors pointing up. Cut little by little upward, this is to give the bangs edge and body. After cutting the first part, move on to the other part. Make sure to be patient as you cut along either side–it is all worth it.

Now comb your bang and leave it at the position you want, and check how the angle and length look on your face.

If you notice some uneven parts, then it’s time to touch up! Leave all the bangs in front of your face and trim those that you missed until they match the neighboring hairs. If needed, create a neat diagonal line. Slowly continue doing this until you get the fringy look that you need.

This is how your side-swept bangs should look by now. It shouldn’t look too freshly cut and the cuts should be edgy.

Step 9. Straighten Your Bangs

After the cut, the next thing to do is the style the hair. A great way to style side-swept bangs is to use a straightening iron. Bump your bangs up by curving your straightening iron in. You wouldn’t want super straight bangs looking too freshly cut.

Step 10. Finish it Off with a Hairspray

For the finishing touch, take your most trusted brand of hairspray and spray your bangs in place.

And you’re all done! Isn’t cutting your own bangs exciting? But before you become scissor happy and try doing it again, refer to this guide to avoid any mistakes, tears and bad photos.

Before and After

One last thing, note these down if you’re wearing a bang

How to cut side swept bangs

Take A Weekly Check

Depending on how fast your hair grows, it could take less than a week for your bangs to be in a ‘craggy’ way. So check your bangs weekly, and keep it trimmed and shining. The first rule of thumb is never cut straight across. Take a little, tiny chop until it gets back to the perfect shape.

Try To Keep It Lifted

Never let weather or water touch your bang. Always protect it from the sun rays, humidity, or even gusts of wind whenever you go out. Keep it clean and hidden with a cap. That helps your bang look shaped when you arrive at work.

Make sure you have dry shampoo in your handbag before leaving home. Spray it over your bang whenever it gets greasy. Try out some more hair products to keep your bang stiff and moisturized.

If we’re honest, we can’t remember when side-swept bangs weren’t a thing. This style of bangs is ultra-flattering, which is probably why it’s consistently been one of the most popular haircut options over the years. After all, side bangs help to frame your face and highlight your facial features without the awkward grow-out phase that comes with straight-across bangs. That said, as with any hairstyle that’s been around for what seems like forever, figuring out new ways to upgrade the look can be tricky. To help you make side-swept bangs current, we’ve rounded up eight ideas, from pinned-back to long side-swept bangs. Be prepared to get swept away.

1. Side-Swept Bangs With Long Hair

Why we love it: One of the most classic takes on this cut is side-swept bangs with long hair. In our opinion, the perfect way to add a current twist to this pairing is by rocking deep-parted, long side-swept bangs that will complement your length.

How to get the look: Use the end of a rattail comb to part your hair toward the side with your bangs. You can use the arch of your eyebrow as a guideline for where to create the deep part. To keep it in place, mist your hair with the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray.

2. Lifted Side-Swept Bangs

Why we love it: We’ll always be a fan of adding volume to our hair. By lifting the root of your side-swept bangs, it will create the illusion of a more voluminous mane.

How to get the look: Spritz the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray onto the roots of your side bangs for instant lift.

3. Layers With Side-Swept Bangs

Why we love it: As we mentioned, side bangs alone help to highlight your facial features, but adding layers into the mix will emphasize them even more.

How to get the look: Ask your stylist for a layered haircut (and side-swept bangs) that will flatter your face shape.

4. Pinned-Back Side-Swept Bangs

Why we love it: If you want your hair out of your face, a pinned-back hairstyle is just what you need. This is an effective way to style long side-swept bangs in a pinch.

How to get the look: Pin your bangs behind your ear with a bobby pin or trendy hair clip.

5. Bob With Side-Swept Bangs

Why we love it: Short hair can often seem limiting since you don’t have as much hair to work with. That said, side-swept bangs with short hair are the perfect way to add a bit of texture to a bob haircut without resorting to ultra-short layers.

How to get the look: Turn to your hairdresser for this one. You can ask for longer side-swept bangs that blend into the length of your bob cut or opt for shorter strands.

6. Sleek Side-Swept Bangs

Why we love it: This slick look is edgy and super polished. Not to mention, it’ll help keep your side bangs from straying midday (or night).

How to get the look: Straighten your mane with a flat iron. Then, squeeze a small amount of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel onto your fingertips. Apply the gel to your side bangs, slicking them backward and tucking them behind your ear. Add more gel as necessary to finish your sleek look.

7. Braided Side-Swept Bangs

Why we love it: Not only will braiding your side bangs keep them out of your face, but it’ll also create a super cute boho look. This hairstyle gives us groovy ‘70s hair vibes.

How to get the look: Split your side bangs into three equal strands. Then, either French or Dutch braid your bangs along your hairline, stopping just behind your ear. Secure the braid with bobby pins.

Next up: If side-swept bangs aren’t your thing, we have another option that’s hot off the presses. Click over to our article, Hairstyle Trend Alert: Curtain Bangs.

Side-swept bands require regular trimming to stay in tip-top shape, but since we’re still practising social distancing – we advise that you cut your own bangs at home.

We’re going to show you how. All you’ll need is; scissors, a comb, clips, a big piece of plastic and a towel.

Let’s show you how to cut your side-swept bangs:

Prep your hair and cover it up

Before cutting your bangs, you want to ensure that your hair is clean, smooth and free of oil. Wash your hair with TRESemmГ© Platinum Strength Shampoo and Conditioner. This duo fortifies and strengthens hair while leaving it smooth and shiny. These TRESemme Platinum Strength products nourish and make your strands stronger.

Section hair and create a triangle

Clip your hair at the back to keep it in place or tie it into a ponytail as you work on your bangs. Then draw an imaginary triangle from the top of your mane up to your right and left temples. Doing this will ensure that your bangs will be balanced.

Comb and cut

Cut your bangs in the middle and use this as a guide for when you cut your bangs on the sides. Position your scissors horizontally and cut your bangs straight, then comb your hair towards your right side and position your scissors diagonally. Then, cut your bangs downwards and continue to the left side to cut your bangs downwards as well.

Add a bit of texture

Position your scissors vertically and point-cut the tips of your bangs to make your fringe look a little softer. To complete your look and keep flyaways at bay, apply TRESemmГ© Extra Hold Styling Hair Spray to achieve maximum hold and shine.

Now you know how to cut your own side-swept bang. Remember to continue to strengthen your hair with TRESemme Platinum Strength range that will not only keep your hair healthy but give it a sleek, salon finish too.

You’re now ready to rock your gorgeous hair. For more hair care advice, check out these at home hair tips.

How to cut side swept bangs

Introduction: How to Cut Your Own Sidebangs

Welcome to my tutorial! The goal today is to take dull, drab hair and transform it with some sassy, flirty sidebangs. This super easy method takes all of five minutes, but here I’m going to break it down for you, along with some helpful side notes and other options.

Materials Needed: Comb, scissors, clips, mirror, some hair, flat iron/straightener (optional), water bottle (optional).

Preparation: Part your hair down the middle. If you are cutting it wet , make note of your natural texture. Curly hair should be cut longer than desired, otherwise you’re going to have itty bitty curlies right on your hairline. Wavy and straight hair is fine. If you are cutting it dry , flat iron the hair you’ll be cutting. Keep in mind that this will give you more precision, but your bangs may not look exactly the same when you wear your hair natural.

Just as a side note, my mannequin is the CLiC model named Courtney.

Step 1: Create a Triangular Part

It’s important not to make the triangle’s base too wide or too narrow. Your pupil is usually a good guide, but if you’re worried, take a little less hair. You can always cut more off later, but putting it back on costs major mula. Also, don’t make the triangle too tall. If you do you’ll be cutting into your hairstyle, resulting in some serious flyaways and frizzies.

Step 2: Brush Hair to the Opposite Side You Want Your Bangs to Fall

Wait, what? The opposite? Are you sure? Yes, I’m sure. If you want your bangs to go left, brush them right. If you want them to go right, brush them left. This will all make sense in the end, just trust me.

Step 3: Twist and Cut

This step is a teensy bit more complicated than it sounds. Long story short, twist the hair towards the back of the head and cut parallel to your parting line, as shown in the picture.

Why are we twisting the hair? The shortest piece of hair in your sidebangs is the ‘axis’ the hair is twisted on. The longest piece is the one that gets twisted over. The longer the hair travels, the longer it will be after the cut.

What happens if I cut horizontal, instead of parallel? You’ll get a very sharp slant that could look kinda strange, possibly even straight up weird.

What happens if I cut it at the wrong angle? Best case scenario, you get something resembling a blunt cut bang. Worst case scenario, you make an appointment with your local hairdresser and laugh off your mistake.

Where should I cut along the length of the hair? If you want to feature your eyes, cut where my metal clip is. If you want to highlight some beautiful cheekbones, cut around where my blue line is. Anything too much higher than the clip will give you short stubbies. Anything lower will put the bangs in your eyes and draw attention to your nose, which may or may not be good.

Step 4: Marvel at Your Newfound Skill

If you cut it wet, things should be looking pretty fly. If you cut it dry, you may have to wet it down and blowdry it, depending on how unruly your hair is. That’s what I did with Miss Courtney.

Step 5: Style As Desired

You look beautiful! Take a picture and update your facebook. Feel proud as the compliments come flooding in. Courtney here is going on a date so I put her in a trendy (not a Snooki) poof and a twist. I wish I had taken a picture of the twist before I brushed her out. Ah well, hindsight is 20/20.

How to Cut Your Own Bangs: DIY Side Swept Bangs

Step 1. Set Your Hair

How to cut side swept bangs

  1. Start by combing back the hair on your crown.
  2. After doing this, push the rest of your hair back and tie it into a ponytail.
  3. Once you’ve gotten it out of your way, comb the section you’ve designated as your bangs in front of your face.

Tip: Straighten your hair either with a straightening iron or a blow dry before cutting so you know your hair length and tell exactly where your bangs fall.

Step 2. Determine the Length of Your Bangs

How to cut side swept bangsUsing a pintail comb, determine where your bangs will start and end.

If you want traditional bangs, hold the comb vertically and locate the arch of your eyebrow.

For curtain bangs, aim for the point of your chin — this is where your bangs should start. Do the same thing on the other side to determine where they should end.

Tip: Use the tip of your pintail comb to make a straight wedge up your hair from the hairline. Do the same to the other side of the bangs and along the top part of your bangs.

Step 3. Work on Straight Hair Lines

How to cut side swept bangsAfter sectioning out the beginning and end of your bangs, even out the top. You’re essentially looking to create a rectangular shape.

Make sure the wedge on your bangs is only 1-2 inches. You can make your bangs ticker according to your style, but the ideal measurement is 1 to 2 inches max.

Step 4. Tie Your Back Hair Into a Ponytail

How to cut side swept bangs

If the sides and top of the bangs are already even, tie any stray hairs into a ponytail.

This will prevent the hairs from falling back down. Now, comb your bangs again.

Step 5. You’re Now Ready for The Cut

How to cut side swept bangs

Now you’re ready to cut!

Hold your bangs and give it a twist then hold on to it to keep it in place. This twist-and-cut technique is for the right-handed where the left hand can do the job of keeping the hair in place while the right-hand does the cutting.

This avoids any disastrous situations by ensuring the entire section of your hair isn’t cut at an angle. We instead only want to cut small sections at a time, not the whole thing.

Grab your hair where you want your bangs to lie, comb it out, then twist it away from your face. Now, keep a steady hand, and cut down vertically.

Step 6. Redistribute Your Hair Evenly

After twisting your hair, comb the bangs down and distribute them evenly in your grasp.

You will have to cut at an angle from the right side downwards.

Step 7. Cut Your Hair by SectionHow to cut side swept bangs

Time to make the cut! Use professional hair cutting scissors and hold it at an angle as shown below.

Cut the hair slowly and make sure you open and close the scissors in every cut. Doing one cut is a big no-no; little cuts are always better.

This is especially for those who are learning how to cut side swept bangs for the first time.

Cutting your own hair can be nerve-racking so it’s always best to cut (if possible) a few strands of hair at a time.

Step 8. Cut at an Angle

How to cut side swept bangs

After doing the sidecut, comb the bangs down again, but this time, split them evenly into two parts.

Hold the left side of the bangs down with your scissors pointing up. Cut little by little upward, this is to give the bangs edge and body.

After cutting the first part, move on to the other part. Make sure to be patient as you cut along either side–it is all worth it.

This is how your side-swept bangs should look by now. It shouldn’t look too freshly cut and the cuts should be edgy.

Step 9. Straighten Your Bangs

How to cut side swept bangsAfter the cut, the next thing to do is the style the hair. A great way to style side-swept bangs is to use a straightening iron.

Bump your bangs up by curving your straightening iron in. You wouldn’t want super straight bangs looking too freshly cut

Switch up your style with a side fringe.

40 Slides

“Should I get bangs?” It’s a question asked by many women. We’ve all been there — planning a hair change by getting a fringe and then wimping out at the last minute. Just like getting a drastic haircut, cutting your bangs can be a tough decision to make. After all, a fringe can totally transform your look, either for the better or for the worse.

Enter the side bangs. If there’s a fringe style that anyone can rock, it’s the side-swept fringe. It goes well with any face shape (but most especially round faces) and you can wear it at any length, from short to eye-grazing and even down to your jawline. It suits any hair texture too, whether sleek straight, wavy, choppy, or curly. Practical and chic at the same time, side-swept bangs can balance out a wide forehead and provide the perfect finishing touch to any hairstyle.

A hair transformation doesn’t have to mean chopping it all off. Sometimes, all it takes is a small change to your fringe. Take a look at 40 chic styles below.

A Guide to the Many Different Types of Bangs

The ways in which you can cut bangs is so vast, so encyclopedic, it could merit its own Dr. Seuss verse. You can chop bangs to frame the eyes; you can sweep bangs to one side. You can wear bangs with a bob; you can wear bangs to your job. (Should we keep going? OK.) You can part bangs right down the middle; you can cut bangs till they’re really little. You can snip bangs to just above your brow; the world is your oyster, do you get it now?

It doesn’t stop there either, you see. Fringe can also vary in length and style — O-M-G. The ends can be blunt, curved, curly, or cropped; there are so many options, in fact, this cut cannot be topped. So, how are you to know which bangs haircut to choose? That’s why we’re here: to do the hard part for you.

No matter your celebrity hair inspo, your face shape, or your reason behind “why,” we’re breaking down every type of bang you could possibly try.

Types of Bangs

  • Arched Bangs
  • Baby bangs
  • “Birkin” bangs
  • Blunt bangs
  • Braided bangs
  • Curtain bangs
  • Curly bangs
  • Layered bangs
  • Micro bangs
  • Retro pinup bangs
  • Shaggy curtain bangs
  • Swoop bangs
  • Wavy bangs
  • Wispy bangs

How to Cut Bangs

We should preface this by saying your first stop to getting bangs should always be to the salon and a hairstylist. This will ensure you don’t botch the ends or cut them too short. That said, if you’re in dire need of a trim, these tips from a pro will help you cut your bangs safely. All you’ll need are sectioning clips, a comb, and hair clipping scissors.

There’s no doubt that sexy side swept bangs are having a moment.

Whether it’s a thick and full fringe like Emma Stone, or something more subtle à la Suki Waterhouse’s wispy fringe, side bangs are everywhere.

But what exactly is a side swept bang?

This hairstyle is achieved with a dramatic side part, a little farther than you would usually part your hair, with the hair then framing your face. As well as looking sexy and trendy, this look is great for hiding fine lines and wrinkle on your forehead.

Who suits a side fringe?

As it subtly frames the face, a side swept bang suits most face shapes and hair colours. People with oval, heart-shaped and long face shapes can all pull off this look. Although those with heart-shaped faces should try and keep the fringe wispier, while people with long-shaped faces should ask their stylist to cut it heavier.

The good news for anyone with a round-shaped face is that this is one of the fringe types that will complement your face. A thick side fringe that is cut an an angle can make round-shaped faces look longer and thinner. If cut the right way, it can also help accentuate cheek bones.

How to style your side swept bangs

Styling a side sept bang is actually pretty easy. If your hair in long then just part your hair slightly wider than usual and blow dry as usual. When it comes to styling your bangs, use a round brush and use a hairdryer to apply heat in a downwards direction.

A natural wave can look cute with this style and add a bit of volume, but a flat iron or straighteners can be used to flatten any unwanted frizz.

Once your side bangs look on point, just spritz a bit a hairspray to keep it in place.

How to cut side swept bangs

Hairstyle trends may come and go, but side-swept bangs are sticking around. In spite of the best efforts of hair stylists and It girls insisting on the center part, we’re still seeing the side part pop up on runways and in magazines and we like it!

The main question is: how far aside should a side-sweep be?

The styles to try

With the under-cut hairstyle gaining popularity, you can part your side-sweep pretty far over and still be in safe territory. As long as you can see well enough, it’s all a matter of your own personal tastes. We do have a few tips, however, for particularly easy and effective ways to incorporate the side-sweep.

The flip

Separate two-thirds of your hair and flip it to one side, using your fingers to direct it where you want it to go. If you need to, use a little styling putty to keep everything in one place.

The deliberate side part

After you’ve washed your hair, use a tail comb to part your hair really far to one side. One your hair has dried with a side-part, it’ll stay that way until you wash it again.

Bangs only

Part your hair on one side and then use a round brush to blow-dry your bangs in the same direction. Use hairspray to keep them in place.

Faux half-hawk

The side-part is a necessity for this hairstyle. Smooth one side of your hair from front to back and pin in place. Tease the rest of your hair to give it some volume.

How to cut side swept bangs

No matter your texture or length, these side swept bangs are the perfect complement for a sophisticated ‘do. Unlike short or wispy bangs, for example, there’s no commitment to cut your locks as it’s a longer style that casually frames your face, showcasing that inner girl-next-door sweet vibe.

Featuring a side part, you’ll soon discover that long layered hair with side swept bangs is easy to recreate at home in quick steps. Since prep work makes the dream work, it’s necessary to smooth your mane out with an anti-frizz serum – AKA, the MVP of all magic potions.

Reese Witherspoon’s Side-Swept Bangs

How to cut side swept bangs

Bangs. We covet them. Especially long, side-swept bangs that frame the face just so. They grow out beautifully, too, just in case you get sick of them and want a change.

This gallery is dedicated to the side-swept bang. I feature 19 of the best of them, all on celebrities. You’ll learn how to style these bangs, how to get the right cut and much more.

Here, Reese Witherspoon shows off a style with bangs. Witherspoon almost always has bangs. She looks great with side-swept bangs. Also, note how her hair has layers that are tapered along her face.

Some tips if you have bangs or want to get them:

  • Consider the upkeep. Bangs take regular trims. Ask your stylist if they offer free bang trims or learn how to trim your own bangs.
  • Bangs look best on hair that’s naturally straight, but you can pull them off if you have wavy hair and blow them out straight. Bangs do not work well on curly hair.
  • Dry bangs first before drying the rest of your hair. Your bangs are shorter so they dry faster, which is why you want to catch them before they dry all wonky.
  • Once you get the perfect cut, you need to make sure you properly know how to blow dry your bangs. Many, many women suffer from “Bubble Bangs” a bang syndrome that could be avoided if only they put down the round brush and blew their hair dry with a flat or paddle brush. There’s a full report in how to blow dry bangs.
  • You may need a good flat-iron.
  • We love the look of thick, heavy bangs and side-swept bangs. Just avoid the thin, wispy, all-one-length bang — it will make your face look “boxy” and dated. A very hot look right now are thick bangs paired with long, wavy layers. Sexy. (You’ll see pictures in this gallery).
  • Not ready for the thick bangs? Try side-swept bangs paired with long layers. Layering hair with bangs works best because it’s less boxy while allowing your hair to grow out without looking too extreme if you decide to grow out the trend.

Bangs Paired With Long, Blonde Hair

How to cut side swept bangs

I happen to love long, side-swept bangs. Why? Here’s why:

  • Unlike blunt bangs, side-swept bangs don’t need to be trimmed every couple weeks. You get them cut and they grow out beautifully.
  • They suit every face shape. Not all bang hairstyles do. But these? Oh yes , you can wear them and so can everyone else you know. They also suit every hair length. They work with pixie cuts, short hair, shoulder-length, bobs and even long hair.
  • They hide a big forehead. Not that you have one, but I do.
  • They never go out of style. You will never, ever see a list of “beauty trends we wish would die off” with side-swept bangs listed on them.

Helena Christensen’s Thick, Side-Swept Bangs

How to cut side swept bangs

I have a lot of hair, but it’s thin. So I am envious of women with thick hair, like Helena Christensen here. Her bangs are thick and lush, unlike my wimpy ones which tend to stick to my forehead in hot weather.

If you have thick, naturally wavy hair, as Christensen does, you can wear bangs, you just need to be careful that they aren’t too heavy and thick. Your stylist can remove some of the bulk with a razor.

Emma Stone’s Long, Side-Swept Bangs

How to cut side swept bangs

One of the secrets to a great side-swept bang is that it blends in well with the rest of your hair.

To achieve this look, ask your stylist to cut long bangs at an angle. Once cut, the secret to styling these bangs is to blow-dry them. Brush bangs forward and blow dry them as if they were blunt bangs. Brush them from side to side as you blow dry.

Once dried, spritz hairspray on your fingers, then comb your fingertips through your bangs to maintain this lovely feathery effect.

Sideswept Bangs

How to cut side swept bangs

Why get bangs? Bangs are the great camouflage of the hair world. They can hide a large forehead and even a short one. They cover up fine lines and scars. They can immediately shave a few years off a look and transform a boring long hairstyle into something that looks purposeful. They bring attention to the eyes. They frame a face.

They are the perfect choice for a woman who wants to change her look but doesn’t want to take off dramatic length. A few snips and you can look like an entirely different person.

And if you hate them or tire of them eventually, they grow out. Perfection.

Cutting my own bangs sounded really intimidating at first. I was sure that I was going to butcher them and end up having to wear a hat for weeks! My hair is a very big deal to me, probably a bigger deal than it should be.

Even though I thought I was going to mess up I still wanted to learn how to do it myself, so I spent hours reading books and articles watching videos, and talking to the retired hairstylists in my family to soak up as much information as I could before trying it out.

To my surprise, the paranoia and research paid off. My first try was a complete success. I have been able to maintain my own side-swept bangs for quite some time now and have even moved on to some other styles. The point is that it looked really challenging, and I was nervous, but it is actually really simple. If I can do it, anyone can; you just need some basic information first.

How to cut side swept bangs

You’ll need a fine-toothed comb and hair-cutting scissors.

What You Need

Before you get started, make sure that you have everything you need:

  • Comb: In my experience, a fine-toothed comb works best.
  • Hair-cutting scissors: Use special hair-cutting scissors, not just any plain old scissors you can find. Using dull or the wrong kind of scissors can mess up your hair completely. They don’t have to be expensive, just made specifically for cutting hair.
  • Hair tie: This is used just to keep the rest of your hair out of your face. You do not want the rest of your hair getting mixed up with your bangs while you are cutting them.
  • Mirror: Just be sure you have a decent clean mirror that is big enough for you to see what you are doing.
  • Chair (optional): I like to sit in a chair or on the counter when cutting my hair. I am more relaxed this way and focus more on my hair than on moving around.

Where to Begin

These first steps and tips will help you get ready.

How to Cut Your Own Bangs, by Bailey Pope as told to All Things Hair

How to cut side swept bangs

What you need:

  • A comb
  • Sharp scissors (“Scissors that aren’t sharp will make it nearly impossible to get a clean shape,” Bailey warns)
  • Clips

How to cut side swept bangsThe sharper, the better.

What to remember:

  • Clips are important, as they help section hair on each side of your fringe and ensure you don’t alter the amount of hair you want in your fringe
  • Whether you’re going for full bangs or a sweeping fringe, don’t pull hair with much tension; this causes hair to travel further than it would when it lies as normal and you run the risk of cutting it too short!
  • Cut hair after drying and styling as you usually would. Wet hair can shrink up after drying, again increasing the risk of going too short.

Step 4: With scissors at a 45-degree angle, create a straight line using uniform small “point cuts,” (Ed’s note: or small vertical cuts “into” hair to texturize and lightly remove bulk from the tips) following your current shape, a.k.a. the last shape your stylist created on you, as your reference. See how Bailey does it in the video above!

Step 5: Comb down and use your fingers to loosen up your fringe to assess length.

Step 6: If you need to go shorter, move up ¼ to ½ inch and repeat. Note: It’s easier to take a few inches off little by little as you need it than to go all too short at once!

How to Cut Your Own Bangs: Sweeping or Side-Swept Fringe

Step 1: Wash, dry and style as usual.

Step 2: Section out your pre-existing fringe and use clips on each side to isolate longer hair away from the bang area.

Step 3: Comb hair to where you wear it on a normal day to identify the existing shape of your fringe line.

Step 4: Comb hair to get it sitting uniformly.

Step 5: Hold your fingers parallel to the shape of the pre-existing line.

Step 6: With scissors at a 45-degree angle, create a straight line using uniform small “point cuts,” following your current shape, a.k.a. the last shape your stylist created on you, as your reference.

Step 7: Comb down and use your fingers to loosen up your fringe to assess length.

Step 8: If you need to go shorter, move up ¼ to ½ inch and repeat. Note: It’s easier to take a few inches off little by little as you need it than to go all too short at once!

Ed’s note: Once you have your ideal length, having the right products to keep your fringe looking fresh and full is key.

How to cut side swept bangs

A cowlick is a deviation in the hair that causes the hair to lay in several different directions at once. Cowlicks are most often seen at the crown of the head or near the forehead. If you have a forehead cowlick, cutting bags can be tricky. However, there are several techniques to use to make having bangs look natural. Always work with the inclination of the hair for best results. Always cut longer and trim to shorter to avoid creating the world’s shortest bangs.

Wash the hair, allowing it to dry naturally. Brush out the hair and observe the natural placement of the cowlick along the forehead where it will effect bang placement. Part your hair along the cowlick whether it is in the middle or side of the forehead.

Place your fingers at the edges of your eyebrows. Grasp some hair between your index fingers and middle fingers. Look to see where you will want to cut. Depending on where the cowlick hits, you will create straight bangs or side bangs.

Use a comb to make a sharp division along the finger part line. Pin back the rest of the hair with hair clips and brush the bang hair straight over the eyes.

Wet the hair using a water-filled spray bottle. If the hair starts to dry while you are still cutting, spray the hair again.

Pull the hair straight to the middle of the forehead if you want straight bangs. Angle the side edges of the bangs in toward the bridge of the nose. Cut the bangs to be a little past the eyebrows. Allow the bangs to fall against the forehead and trim any hairs that you missed.

Pull the bangs to one side for side-swept bangs. Hold the hair straight along the side of the head. Trim the bangs along the cheekbone for long bangs. Trim along the eyebrow for short bangs. Typically, side bangs are longer and typically are no shorter than cheekbone length. Trim any hairs that you missed to create the shape you want.

Are your bangs a little too grown out and look like shit, or you are in desperate need of a change and decided on going for bangs vs new boobs? While I’d never discourage someone from seeing a professional hair stylist, these tips will help you out if you’re in a pinch!

Step 1: Prep Hair & Find Existing Bangs or Create Triangular Part

How to cut side swept bangs

I recommend using professional scissors. Here you can purchase some professional Hair Cutting Shears / Scissors with adjustable tension and finger inserts.
For starters: make sure your hair is dry and brushed . For obvious reasons, having a massive tangle will mess up the desired end result. Now that your bangs are fully dried and brushed, let’s carry on.

I had preexisting bangs, so I simply found and separated those from the remainder of my hair.

For the brave souls embarking upon a fresh set, or those whose existing bangs are long gone, they will need to create a triangular part as you see in the picture.

I tend to sweep my bangs over my left eye to cover a nasty scar, therefore, the triangle comes out of that side part. See and examine photo, carefully.

It is important not to make the triangle’s base too wide or too narrow, but if you’re worried, take a little less hair since you can always cut more. Also, do not make the triangle too tall. No more than 2 inches, otherwise you will end up cutting into your hairstyle and you’re bangs will be too thick.

Again, use the above photo as a reference.

Step 2: Brush Bangs to Opposite Side You Want Them to Fall

How to cut side swept bangs

Yes, the opposite side. Since I want my bangs to fall over my left eye, I brushed them over my right eye.

Step 3: Cut Hair below Fingers

How to cut side swept bangs

Alright, Edward Scissorhands, now is your time to shine. Using your fingers, pull bangs to the opposite side you intend to wear them and then cut in a straight, even line below where your fingers are holding them.

Regarding length, this is a personal preference but I decided to cut mine right below my cheek bone.

Pulling and cutting them on the opposite side results in the angle required for side swept bangs.

Step 4: Push Back to Side You Want to Wear Them

How to cut side swept bangs

After cutting your side swept bangs, sweep those babies back to the side you intend to wear them.

You should now notice the angle, which I mentioned in the previous step. The bangs near the center of the face are shorter and become gradually longer as they reach the side of my face.

Step 5: Cut Upwards into the Bangs

How to cut side swept bangs

Since we cut the bangs in a straight line, they are a little too ‘perfect.’

Pull your bangs to the front and cut upwards, into the bangs to break up the straightness of the line.

Obviously you do not want to overdue this step.

Step 6: Examine Result of Cutting Upwards into the Bangs

How to cut side swept bangs

This is the result of cutting upwards into the bangs. You should notice the line is not as straight and looks a little more ‘worn in.’

Step 7: Round Brush and Style

How to cut side swept bangs

Using a round brush and heat from a hair dryer, brush bangs to the side you want them to fall and hold handle up higher (as pictured) to get them to ‘swoop’ across your face.

Step 8: Enjoy Your Bangs and Live Well

How to cut side swept bangs

Once they’re all blow dried and round brushed out, you should be able to tell if they are satisfactory, if not, cut upwards into the bangs a few more times.

Apply a little product or hair spray if you want, and get out there and flaunt your brand new, side swept bangs!

How to cut side swept bangs

As a cosmetologist, one concern I hear over and over again is that people really want to try side swoop bangs, but they don’t want to have to come get their bangs trimmed every 3 weeks to maintain them. I usually teach them a few tricks to help them maintain the look so that they don’t need to come back until they need a full haircut. I wanted to have some side swoop bangs before I going to Snap, so of course, I decided to take pictures along the way so that you can ALL know how to cut your own side swoop bangs at home!

How to cut side swept bangs

Before you start, be sure that your bangs are dry and straight. If you cut them while they are wet, bangs tend to shrink a little when they dry and they become shorter than you had originally planned. NOT good!

How to cut side swept bangs

Follow along with me through these pictures.

1. Part off as much hair as you want included in your bangs. If you want them to be thin, don’t take as much hair. If you want thick bangs, take a bigger section of hair. Keep in mind what your hair texture is like when choosing. My hair is thick, so a medium/thicker bang works well with my hair.

2. Choose where you want your bangs to hit on the side of your face.

3. Brush the section of hair you are working with to the opposite side of your face (Random information: This is also known as taking it across the street in beauty school). Put your fingers where you want your bangs to hit when you pull that hair back over to where you want them to be.

4. Using your fingers as a guide, cut your hair along where your fingers are, keeping your hair pulled the opposite direction that they will be. I like to point cut my bangs, meaning that I don’t cut straight across. I hold the scissors up and down and cut that way. It makes for a less dramatic line. Keep in mind, that could be a little more advanced and could be dangerous to cut towards your fingers. BE SO CAREFUL not to cut your fingers! You can also just cut straight across if that is easier/safer for you.

5. Brush your bangs over to where you want them to be. Style them how you want them.

All done! Enjoy your beautiful side swoop bangs!

Having a fringe or, as they say in America, bangs can make a woman look ultra mysterious and sexy. It can also help hide zits or a high forehead. Layered bangs take it a step further- framing your face to create an even more alluring look. Getting a hairstylist to cut bangs for you can be pricey. Here are some tips on how to do it yourself.

Wash your hair. Use shampoo and conditioner. Towel-dry.

Brush your hair thoroughly. Get out all the knots and tangles. If you do not untangle your hair and you start cutting bangs, they will come out crooked.

Stand in front of a large mirror and make a part in your hair. It can be a center part or a side part. Choose a part that you will wear most often. Make sure it is even. The best way to do this is to brush your hair back evenly and see where your hair parts naturally, then smooth it further with your fingers.

Brush a few strands of your hair all the way in front over your forehead evenly to create a thin fringe. Make sure the bangs are evenly distributed along your forehead. In other words, they should incorporate even bits of hair from both temples.

Cut and brush more strands of hair evenly from both sides of the front parts of your hair to thicken your front bangs as much as you want. The farther back they start, the thicker your bangs will be. They should begin about 1 or 2 inches in front of the middle of the top of your head.

Add layers to your bangs by cutting more strands of hair from your hair in front, only this time make each strand that you cut longer and longer than your front bang until the longest strand falls a few inches past your ears.

If we were to pinpoint one downside to bangs, it’s how high-maintenance they are. Whether you’ve maintained the style for a trendy moment or your day-to-day routine, bangs are a commitment. We know the struggle of looking in the mirror just four weeks after getting bangs, stunned to find that what was once a smooth, sharp cut is now an uneven fringe that’s inhibiting your eyesight. And because making frequent trips to the salon just to get a bang trim is unattainable for most, we’re giving you a helping hand. We spoke to hairstylists Jamie Wiley and Nunzio Saviano for a beginner’s guide to trimming the perfect fringe. Keep reading for a step-by-step breakdown of how to cut your own bangs at home.

Meet the Expert

  • Jamie Wiley is a celebrity hairstylist and the artistic director for Pureology. She is based in Elizabethtown, KY at Salon HP.
  • Nunzio Saviano is a celebrity hairstylist in New York City at Nunzio Saviano Salon. He launched “Oxilogica,” a haircare and scalp treatment line.

What You’ll Need:

  • Professional shears
  • Fine-tooth comb
  • Rat-tail comb
  • Alligator clips
  • Anti-frizz cream
  • Leave-in spray
  • Hairspray

Prep Your Hair

” data-caption=”” data-expand=”300″ data-tracking-container=”true” />

After you have gathered all of the necessary tools, Saviano suggests starting on freshly shampooed hair. This will ensure there is no buildup on the hair. “Apply an anti-frizz blow-dry cream before drying bangs using a boar hair round brush,” he says. “I suggest the Time-Release Anti-Frizz Cream ($28), a lightweight, hydrating, anti-frizz blow-dry cream that protects the hair from thermal heat damage and offers conditioning benefits.”

“Create a triangle from one corner of the eye to the other. The center should be one-and-a-half to two inches. Wrap the triangle hair around a boar bristled brush for tension, blow-dry toward the face, and let it fall naturally,” says Saviano.

Section Off Your Hair

” data-caption=”” data-expand=”300″ data-tracking-container=”true” />

Wiley advises, “Always cut your bangs dry, as this is when they are in their most natural state. When your hair is wet, it has the ability to elongate and stretch so when it does dry it will shrink causing your bangs to appear shorter than you desired.”

Now that your hair is completely dry, use a comb to precisely section off the hair you don’t want to cut. Pull this hair back in a ponytail or pin it up with bobby pins. Only your bangs (or soon-to-be bangs) should be left loose and in the shape of a triangle.

“If you are cutting curly hair, the key is prepping hair with a treatment mask like Pureology’s Hydrate Soft Softening Treatment ($38) so that the hair is intensely moisturized. Be sure to rinse out thoroughly and air dry to get your hair in its most natural curl state,” Wiley says.

Side-swept pixie haircuts are the latest trend in women’s hairstyles. They work best on those with fine hair because they have a natural tendency to fall flat against the side of your head. The side bangs can be parted in many ways and can be as long or short as you prefer. This is the ultimate guide to getting this haircut style for you!

How to cut side swept bangs

The Side Swept Pixie Haircut

Table of Contents

Is it a very popular hairstyle for women? It is the latest trend in haircuts that can be worn as everyday do, or with some barbering to appear more formal and professional.

– The side swept pixie haircut has bangs that sweep from one side of the forehead to across the other side, while still staying fairly short on top. This creates a framing effect around your entire face so you look young and fresh!

– Side swept pixie haircuts are often cut with layers throughout because they give them their fullness back after being scissor cut off during styling. These layers will also create volume if you have fine hair which won’t hold its weight well without some help getting it up into place

How to Style the Side Swept Pixie Haircut

– Launch a side swept pixie haircut with layers by separating the hair on your head into two sections.

– Twist one section of hair and clip it to the back of your head, away from your face.

– Wrap the other half around to create some volume in front. Secure it at the nape of the neck or topknot for extra hold if needed.

– Finish up by spritzing hairspray over all strands from root to tip before releasing them down onto your shoulders and framing that stunning new look!

What Products to Use for Your Side Swept Pixie Haircut

– Use a volumizing mousse.

– Blow-dry the hair upside down to create volume and use a round brush at the roots.

– Add some texturizing powder for more texture and lift in stubborn areas.

– Finish with hairspray, but finish off by combing through with your fingers too – this will help tames flyaway and stray pieces of hair that won’t stay put!

what products to use for side-swept pixie haircuts? Volumes with mousse blow-dry upside down, add texturizing power, and spray it all out from loose locks into shapely waves.”

Where to Get Your Next Professional Cut if You Want One Done Professionally

How to cut side swept bangs

– If this interests you, make sure to do some research on stylists in your area who know how to handle tricky hair types like curly, frizzy, or thinning hair.

Key Takeaways: While I don’t recommend cutting your hair because of its often difficult texture (which leads me into my next section) if you want an even more dramatic look than what’s already been described then take someone else with experience and trust their opinion! It’ll be worth it in the end when all those compliments start rolling in from friends and family members alike. These are just a few

What You Need for a DIY at Home Cut

The side swept pixie haircut is not for the faint of heart. It may seem like a simple hairstyle on paper, but in reality, it’s probably one of the most complicated cuts to get without experience. You need someone who knows what they’re doing and can have patience with you as you find your style and grow into this new cut. The good news there are some things that anyone can do at home if their hair starts growing out too long or needs a touch-up before heading back to the salon

Conclusion

There are many ways to get the side-swept pixie haircut, but we’ve found that this guide is a helpful place to start. The key components of the side-swept pixie cut include an angled fringe and long bangs parted in one direction or another depending on your preference. Remember to always maintain a facile hairstyle with plenty of conditioners for those who have finer hair!
