How To Cut Curtain Bangs On Curly Hair
In this part, we will list the steps of making curtain bangs on curly hair. You can follow them and try to make it by yourself.
1. The Tools You Will Need:
Hair shears, clips or elastics, rat-tail comb for parting
2. Before Cutting Curtain Bangs
Make sure your curly hair is 100% dry before styling hair with curtain bangs. Because we know that wet curls will always look longer than dry curls. Cutting curly hair while it is wet is always a game of chance ——when it dries, it can shrink up to 70% and leave you with itty-bitty micro bangs.
In order to keep your curly bangs the proper length, you have to give your curly hair enough time to dry. Because you can see how they naturally lay on your head and determine where they should be cut.
3. Create A Triangle Part
This step is to help you make sure the part for the curtain bangs. Which part of the hair should be selected as the most suitable bangs? You can run your fingers up the sides of the outer corners of your eyes to take a section of hair for the base of the triangle.
Then find the point where your head begins to tilt forward to your forehead, and use this point as the highest point of the triangle. The farther this point is from your forehead, the thicker your bangs will be.
We recommend choosing a point closer to your forehead at the beginning so that your bangs will not look too thick. And if you think it is too thin, it is very convenient to add some later. In short, sectioning less is better than too much. Also of note, It's best not to make the base of the triangle wider than your eyebrows; it will make your forehead appear larger.
Once you've identified the right triangle area, secure the rest of the hair so it doesn't get in the way of your bangs.
4. Cut The Bangs
Part the hair of the triangle area down the middle, so that they fall evenly on the sides of the nose. Start by taking a curl from the middle of the forehead, determine the length you want, and trim off the excess, then trim the sides afterward (remember to leave it a little longer so you don't cut it too short to remedy). Repeat with the curls on either side, adding a little more length as you go.
And Keep checking to compare each side of the face and make sure the bangs are evenly tapered on both sides and the middle and the lengths of outermost hair on each side are equal.
After cutting, check whether the bangs are the ideal length and thickness for you. If you want thicker and shorter bangs, just trim again to get the perfect curtain bangs.
