Men like to have their hair styled the same as women. One increasingly common style is the shag cut, marked by a free-flowing, swooping look. Cutting and maintaining proper bang length is critical in pulling off this look, which is not difficult to do with a mirror and a sharp razor.

Things You'll Need

Wash and dry your hair. Be sure it’s totally dry, since cutting wet hair often leaves the result shorter than intended once it dries.

Comb your bangs down and forward, keeping them out of the way of the rest of your hair.

Hold your bangs between your fingers. Cut your bangs downward with the razor, using quick motions.

Trim overall length as needed with a pair of scissors. Traditional shaggy bangs stop at or just above the eyebrows, but it’s up to your personal preference.
