Cutting Bangs into Natural Hair!

By January 27th, 202124 Comments
Watch as Nadieninguem cuts her own bangs! The results… um, DOPE.

Would you do it?!

If you already have bangs, what has your experience been?

CN Says:

I asked Marie, my STL stylist to cut me a long bang and she killed it! ROCK STAR STATUS. Like… paint a pink streak over my eye, jam out on the guitar, drop the mic, walk off the stage, Jem and the Holograms’ hair.

I will say that cutting a bang (or layers for that matter) into fine hair can reduce bulk, which, if you desire a voluminous look, may be counterproductive.
So while there are days that I miss the length, 99% of the time I’m tossing my bangs and popping my gum #swag.

I’d most certainly do it all over again and plan to keep up the shape for the foreseeable future!

    I LOVE how it looks. I'm scared though! lol It has been a LONG time since I've had bangs, like actual cut bangs and not an overzealous hair stylist "trimming" :P I think I might try pinning it first, see how I like it. Also, I just made a hair rat (over at acurlsbf) and I'm really liking experimenting with the look. Not sure if I could still rat the front if I cut bangs…

  • Nicole says:

    My hair is completely natural and i just cut my bangs! I needed something new. I LOOOOVE them omgosh! it's super edgy in its natural state and when flat ironed looks just lovely. (my hubby thinks so too! I think I'll have bangs for while:) no regrets here at all! Try it out you might love it:)

  • RAMONA says:

    Sooo cuute. Can't wait to try that out. Hopefully by the end of the summer my hair will be ready for that!

    I would suggest to cut on dry hair in it's natural state if doing bangs or any cut; that way the shrinkage will be accounted for. Def considering cutting bang on myself since my hair already seems like it has bangs.

  • Erika says:

    I saw this a while back, i liked her technique but not sure if i'm ready to dive into having bangs just yet.

    I watched this same video about a month ago when I had the urge to cut myself some bangs. I cut layers last year which I absolutely loved but I was beyond nervous about bangs because I have a small forehead. Needless to say, I just ended up cutting layers again. I'll just do a rod set and I can have bangs for a week or so!

    love it!

  • Sydney says:

    I was SUPER skeptical when I saw the title of this article but the results are great! I do search and destroys and have recently began "dusting" but I have never and probably will never be bold enough to hard core cut my own hair but kudos to those brave enough to do it and get amazing results! Inspiring!

    I have been transitioning for over a year. I have been looking for a stylist and I live about 20 minutes from St. Louis in Illinois. Where can this said stylist be found! PLEASE HELP!!! The style is too cute also!

    I would love to give it a try but my front hair is my longest (all hair collarbone length) and grows quickest so if I were to cut that part I'd feel like Id be losing the "bulk" of my length. I love how she just cut with no fear… Looks beautiful!!

    She is BAD. The hairstyle is a good look when you can't get to salon, but need MORE style. It's great! It looks like a curly bob. Women paying big money to get that exact look sewn and glued on their heads. #SWAG is crazy right now natural chicks. She poppin' gum with Nik and checkin folk.

  • Alyssa says:

    The front of my hair takes a while to grow, so I twisted the front into 3 yesterday to try out the bang look, then I saw this video and laughed! Hers is lovely, can't wait to see what my mine will look like tomorrow!

    Super cute! I know what I'll be doing next weekend!

    Looks great on her. Not sure it would suit me, or that I would manage to do a good job cutting. Also, because the texture of my hair in front is different from the rest, it might take more work maintaining than its worth.

    cute!something to think about.

  • M says:

    Curte! I cut my own bangs a few months ago because I had abou t3-4 inches of heat damage. I cut while wet so i could see where the damage began. Wasn't even after either :-/ I dont wear my bangs in styles though.. my forehead is too small for all that lol.

    I cut my own bangs two weeks ago. FAIL. Cut them too short. I look crazy. Can't wait for them to grow out. (I cut on wet hair- not thinking about shrinkage. DUH)

  • hairscapades says:

    I would try a long fringe similar to yours Nik, nothing shorter than chin length though as I like to wear updos with all the length concealed. Looks super cute on her, but I mostly where my hair side parted when down and think I'd look like a poodle with bangs like these. I've always loved thick straight bangs though and play with my hair to make fake ones with a ponytail for French twists with the ends going over my head. I'm like the first Anon though as I'd be concerned about break-outs on my forehead (though mine is generous, unlike hers;) with bangs constantly in my face.

    I was contemplating on whether or not I wanted to cut me some bangs, but this video has definitely inspired me to go right ahead and do so! LOL! She did a really good job!!!

    Jem and the holograms! Too cute! Her hair looks great.

  • Candace4life says:

    She did a great job on her hair, not sure that I would be cutting bangs on my hair in the near future. But that hair is gorgeous.

  • Yoshi says:

    my hair does not grow evenly. its like a V so I already have bangs in a way? when my hair is long enough I would like to get my asymmetrical bang back ^___^

  • Anonymous says:

    Nope. No bangs for me. Can't stand having hair in my face. Lol! I have a narrow, oval shaped face with a forehead that's not, well, prominent. So, bangs tend to cover up too much of it AND the hair makes me feel itchy. I also find that even light hair moisturizers can cause facial breakouts when I have hair on my face in any way.
