How to Feather Back Bangs
Get ready to make feathered bangs by buying professional scissors. They are imperative to any good haircut. Wash and dry your hair. Comb your bangs forward and clip the rest of your hair back so it doesn’t get in your way. Brush the bangs with a comb and move them to the side, which is opposite from the one you usually wear at.
Remember, you should be cutting against the part. Slice into the bangs with the scissors. It is very important to make vertical, not horizontal cuts. Comb sections of your bangs out and make the vertical point cuts. Don’t cut more than half an inch at a time, so if you make a mistake, you won’t cut off too much.
After cutting is done, rub some hair gel into your bangs. Brush the bangs to get a feathered style with a round brush and blow-dry the hair. Your feathered bangs are ready to be used and enjoyed!
