How to Cut Your Own Cute Bangs for Pixie Styles

By LaurenKrotosky

A pixie hair cut, which is a cropped style like a boy cut that women can wear, is often complemented by a charming set of side swept bangs. If you're experimenting with your style at home, it's quick and easy to cut your own bangs in this manner. Using a technique of twisting the hair in front of your face and cutting at a diagonal, you'll have a professional look to your bangs without a costly trip to the salon.

Cut your own bangs at home.

Step 1

Spritz your hair with a spray bottle of water, making the hair damp but not soaking.

Step 2

Brush your hair out using a fine toothed comb.

Step 3

Comb the hair at the front of your face forward, so it covers your face and hangs down.

Step 4

Gather your hair over your face together and twist, so you have a rope of hair in front of your face.

Step 5

Hold the scissors at one side of the rope, at the spot where you want the bangs to be shortest.

Step 6

Cut downward at a 45 degree angle until you've cut completely across the rope of hair.

Step 7

Use your fingers to sweep the bangs across your forehead.
