Cut Your Own Bangs

Create a triangle shape with the front part of your hair. Test it out to see if you want it thinner or thicker. If thicker, the triangle will be higher up on your hair line. If thinner, it'll be closer to your forehead.

Sometimes you just need a change, and what's a good way to create change but to get some bangs?

I got similar bangs last year and loved them. I knew they would look good, so I decided to just get them myself.

I purchased my own pair of hair scissors and just decided to go for it.

If you want a good pair of hair scissors, I got mine from Amazon.

It may seem scary, but it was actually very liberating to create something good in my day. Plus, it was good to know that even if I screw it up, there are a good number of salons near me to fix it for me ;)

How do you create change in your life?
