How To Cut Long Curtain Bangs Perfectly? 

Cutting and angling the curtain bangs doesn’t take long. Usually, it takes about 15 to 20 minutes. But you can always take your time and do it slowly and safely. 

Here’s what you’re going to need- 

  • Scissors
  • Hair Clips
  • Hair Dryer
  • Round brush 
  • Hair Straightener 

Grab them as soon as possible and you can immediately get started! 

Step-1: Choose the Part For Your Bangs 

Take the comb and create a centered line on your head. Sit straight and place the comb about one inch behind the hairline. The ideal spot is where the comb doesn’t fall off. 

When you find it, hold the point with your fingers. Then mark the spot which is directly above the eyebrow’s arch. 

Use the comb to draw a diagonal line and separate the hair. Clip the rest of the hair when done. 

Now, repeat this on the other side and the first step is done!

Step-2: Cut Your Bangs at the Right Length 

Now all that’s left is to cut the bangs at the correct length. For this, you’re going to use your chin as a measure. 

Wet the hair you chose and comb it straight. Do it multiple times if necessary.

After that, use your comb from underneath. As you reach the chin area, make a human scissor with your fingers and grab the hair.

Step-3: Angle the Hair 

Angling the hair is important to make the bang blend with the other hair. It provides a nice and soft finish. 

Separate the bang into two parts and clip one of them. Then use the comb in parallel to the diagonal line of step 1.

Step-4: Add a Finishing Touch

You can also use a round brush to add a little bit of curve. Use the dryer on the brush to dry it thoroughly.

Step-5: Blend the Bangs In (Optional)

You can still go for a more angled finish. This is usually done by professional hairdressers. For that, you’ve to cut some extra hair at the same angle as the bangs.

Some Tips To Follow 

There are some techniques that can help you achieve this. These are optional and only beneficial to a certain extent. 

Use a Hair Straightener

Use a hair straightener if your hair is messed up because of all that clipping. It’s a great tool to make the other hair blend in perfectly. This is an alternative option if you don’t want to cut the other hair. 

Use Concentrated Nozzle When Styling 

Dryers have different types of nozzles. Among them, there’s a concentrated one. It’s way thinner than other nozzles. When you’re using a round brush, use this nozzle to dry the hair. It gives a better finish. 

Alright, it’s time to say goodbye. That was everything on long curtain bangs that you can try on your own. Hope it worked or at least gave you some more courage. 

Finally, good luck and have a nice day!
