We still cannot believe that getting a haircut is considered "dangerous." COVID-19 spreads through droplets and enters the body through our eyes, nose, and mouth. This means that close physical contact will put you and the other person at risk of catching the disease. This is the main reason non-essential businesses like salons and beauty clinics are closed while the pandemic remains uncontrolled.
But this doesn't mean that you still can't get that hair makeover you've been wanting to have for so long—DIY haircut is the answer. And to prevent you from regretting this decision, we highly suggest that you venture into bangs first. You'll have more control and be more at ease when you cut the hair that's in front of you rather than a full-length haircut that requires you to snip off the back portion of your head. Fun fact: TikTok is flocked with videos of girls just cutting their own bangs—you're not alone in this desire for a change.
That said, here are the DIY bangs haircuts tutorials we found that will help you score the fringe of your dreams.
(Ed's note: Please watch the video many times and equip yourself with the right tools before proceeding.)
How to cut bangs: K-Style Sheer Bangs
You've overdosed yourself with K-dramas that you finally convinced yourself to get a fringe similar to the lead character's. Score the same see-through bangs every bida has been sporting after watching this tutorial.
How to cut bangs: Side-Swept Bangs
Not gonna lie, the side-swept fringe is my personal favorite because it's low-maintenance: You also do not need to blow-dry it for it to look flawless. You can clip it away from your face if you don't feel like wearing your bangs. Best of all, it suits round face shapes! Are you a fan, too? Learn how to cut side bangs by watching this video:
How to cut bangs: Curtain bangs
Curtain bangs are the sexiest of them all. In fact, another term for it is Bardot bangs, named after the '60s bombshell, Brigitte Bardot. Curtain bangs are parted in the middle with the sides slowly cascading and blend with the rest of the hair which creates the sultry appearance. They frame the face and are also low-maintenance because they don't need regular trims. Best of all, they can be easily "hidden" when you're not in the mood for a fringe.
IF you still can't get over your Hallyu fever, here's a K-style version of curtain bangs—a softer and wispier look.
How to cut bangs: Wispy bangs
A cross between full and wispy bangs, this style offers versatility: You can part in the middle to score a curtain fringe or wear it full for a sweet, ultra-feminine look.
How to cut bangs: Full bangs
Go big or go home! Jump on the bangs trend by trying a full fringe—the most high maintenance of all styles but also the one with the most ~impact~!
How to cut bangs: Curly bangs
It's important that you cut curly hair while it's dry so you can see its natural shape. Hold the shears in a vertical position when you snip off the ends for a textured look. Leave the sides longer for it to blend seamlessly with the rest of your locks.
