Rachel dared to go where many women have gone before… she cut her own bangs. However, unlike those who came before her (and failed miserably), Rachel had expert advice from trusted T3 stylist Tanya Deemer on how to cut your own bangs. Ready for a fringetastic change-up? Follow our easy guide:

Step 1:

Part your hair in an upside down “U” with the tips lining up with the ends of your eyebrows. The “U” will stretch back further in your part depending on how thick you want your bangs.

Next, pull that section of hair taut and twist it a complete 180 degrees. This is to ensure your future bangs blend well with your existing hair and that they don’t come out too blunt.

Step 5:

Your new bangs won’t be perfect just yet, but we’ll get there! First it’s important to get your fringe completely dry. As you blow dry, brush your bangs from one side over to the next. This will give them plenty of natural volume.
