Finally! Instructions for cool bangs. Thanks, Sara.
After reading someone's bad experience getting their baby's haircut at a "kid's cut" sort of place, I decided to try to cut my daughter's bangs myself (her first haircut, too, no less). I was very pleased with the results, even though I inadvertently discovered how to do "Amelie" style bangs -- straight bangs that look a bit retro and are a bit shorter on the edges than in the center.
- Wash and comb hair. Cutting it wet is easier, but it will dry shorter (short bangs help with the Amelie look).
- Pull the hair that shouldn't be bangs out of the way. (I tucked Josie's behind her ears.)
- Comb hair straight up.
- Make a straight horizontal cut. (It may take two...)
That's it! The "in the air horizontal cut" means that when you comb it back over the forehead you'll get a slight, even curve, a bit shorter on the sides.
