Haircut 1: Layered Bangs

Layered bangs are quite easy to cut and maintain. It suits all types of faces; especially long and heart-shaped ones.

Before doing anything, make sure your hair is dry. Now, start parting your hair. Then place the index finger in the middle. 

Touch the middle knuckle on the hairline. Now, the area touched by the tip is going to be your guide. 

Separate the hair and clip the rest of the hair. Now, create a triangle by making an upside-down V. 

The two points will be at the spot directly above the eyebrow’s arch.

Step-2: Cut the Hair

Wet the hair section now and cut at the length you desire. A good piece of advice is to cut the bangs at the chin area.

After that, comb it in parallel to the upside-down V. Cut some extra hair maintaining the same angle. This will thin out the hair.

If you want to blend the bangs more, bring hair from the middle part. Then repeat this step again. 

Step-4: Add a Finishing Touch

Dry the hair and cut vertically to give a flowery finish. When done, hold the extra hair and narrow the hair down maintaining the angle. 

Use a hair straightener or a round brush to add some waves. That’s it!

Haircut 2: Side-swept Bangs

When it comes to trendy hairstyles, side-swept bangs are one of them. Side-swept bangs are like layered bangs but a little different. 

Step-1: Prepare the Hair

As usual, determine the correct crown position. Then mark two spots that are directly above the eyebrow’s arch. Separate the hair accordingly and clip or tie the rest.

It’s time to choose the side where the bangs will fall. Experiment with the hair and check which side looks better.

Sway the hair to the opposite side of what you’ve selected. So, if you want bangs on the left side, sway the hair to right.
