CC Beauty Live: The Bang Trim

I love my bangs, but when they get too long and unruly, it can be a huge pain. While there are some cute ways to pin them back, I’d rather have them down. But how can I have them down if they’re hanging in my eyes? It’s not like I have endless time or money to be popping into the salon for a trim.

What’s a girl to do?
Grab your scissors, girls. We’re gonna learn to trim!

A lot of you have asked about how to trim your bangs and I’m going to show you. In this video, I go through how to trim and style swoop bangs. For those looking for a blunt/straight across trim, that might happen in the near future if I get bored with my hair, but for now you can follow the same kind of process I’m doing here.

A little advice: Breathe. It really is easy once you get over the nerves! But seriously, if you were bad with safety scissors as a kid, just go to the salon. Oftentimes if you know your stylist well, they’ll fit you in and give you a little bang trim for free between regular haircuts.

Got something you want me to cover? Post it in the comments below. And don’t forget to check out my other videos right here!

    I would also check out your local beauty school to see how much they charge for a bang trim.
    Totally unrelated: I think you should do a review/shout out to "the body shop" I recently started using their products and they are amazing and reasonably priced. Great skin care products.

      Yes, I definitely recommend checking your salon first, especially if you're uneasy about cutting your own hair! But trimming my own locks is definitely a time and money saver.

      I actually have never used any products from "The Body Shop" but I might look into it! Any favorite products?

    Great video, very helpful! Future suggestion: I'd love to see a video on at-home hair coloring or highlighting. I'm not sure if you color your hair or not but salon coloring is very pricey and I just wondered if you had any input on the topic.

      Great idea Reems! I do occasionally color my hair, so next time I do, I'll make sure to make a video :)
