    Fringe Trim
    4 Tips for an Easy Fringe Trim!

    I hope your hairdresser has offered to do a free fringe trim in-between your regular hairstyling appointment. If not, you might find out by asking the question; what do you charge for a fringe trim?

    The subject may have simply never come up during your appointment or, may have just slipped their mind, so asking is worth it. If you find out it will cost more than you want to pay or, it just doesn’t fit into your schedule, consider doing a fringe trim at home between appointments.

    “How to Give Yourself a Fringe Trim” It’s really not that difficult to trim your own bangs. The main thing to know is it’s a detail orientated task. Take your time, be patient and pay attention to these details to get it right. (It’s smart to be honest with yourself and if you have two left thumbs, leave it to your hairdresser.) You probably already know, it’s easy to get it wrong if you wing-it without a plan, so for those who feel it’s an amiable task, here’s a plan and a video on how-to do a fringe trim at home.

    Wash and dry your hair, smoothing out fringe as straight as possible. If you have a flat-iron, pull through bangs to straighten..

    1. Separate previously cut fringe out from the rest of your hair, securing the rest out of the way with a headband or putting by into a ponytail. .
    2. Keep in mind you only want to snip off about 1/8th to 1/4th inch of length at a time, following the line the hairdresser has previously cut. You can always cut more later if needed..
    3. Using a fine-toothed comb and a sharp small scissors, start by taking small sections. Be aware to keep a soft and even tension on the hair as you cut, slight tension differation will make a difference in the final length. Also, remember your bangs will bounce up some after you cut them..
    4. Once you’ve completed the cut following the previously cut fringe, step back and view the results all together. You can soften the line by ‘point cutting’ into the tips of the hair as shown in the video below.

    Cowlicks are worth mentioning here. If you have a strong cowlick in front, it is better to wear a long, angled fringe rather than trying to wear a fringe that is trimmed straight across. If you have a more subdued cowlick in front, you may be able to style it straight with a flat iron . . . your hairdresser will be able to help you out with what type of fringe trim works best for you!
