Beauty: How-To Trim Your Own Fringe

OKAY ANDIE | How-To Trim Your Own Fringewith a twist!

It’s about damn time I share this tutorial. I have been trimming my own fringe for about a decade now, pretty much ever since I left home and no longer had my mother to trim them for me (lol). Over the years I have become more and more self-assured when it comes to trimming my fringe, and in the more recent years have discovered the easiest and fastest way to get the job done. Trimming your own fringe, not to mention your own hair, can seem a little bit nerve wracking, but I promise this technique is pretty much fool proof, and as long as you take your time and just relax, I am 100% certain you can do it yourself as well. Here we go, my little trimmers.

If you don’t have a fringe, part your hair in an upside down v shape (^), pulling forward the amount of hair you would like in your fringe.

Cut it; with your free hand, place your fore and middle finger where you would like your fringe length to be and using proper hair cutting scissors (which I haven’t always done, and tbh, didn’t notice a difference, but I’m sure a professional would cringe at that ) and cut below your fingers. Tip – It’s always best to cut a bit less off of your fringe to start with, you can always cut more, you def can’t add back on.

      I have never trimmed all of my hair, so I cannot speak to that, but honestly, I have been trimming my fringe for so long and have never had it turn out badly. If you are careful and trust yourself, I honestly think it will turn out fine. But, I totally understand being afraid to do it.

    You are so brave! My sister is a hair stylist, and I just have her come over, and buy her a beer when I want my bangs trimmed. She tried to do this method on me last time, and I about had a panic attack thinking it wouldn’t work. I’ll have to go apologize to her though, because your’s turned out perfect!
