Of course he doesn't recommend people cut bangs at home, but he knows people are going to anyway.. so here's his advice:
1. Make sure you have the right scissors for cutting hair.
2. Dry the bangs straight and falling consistently across your forehead. Get those cowlicks (yes, it's really called a cow-lick) dried or ironed out.
3. Do not pull on the hair. Gently hold it in place if necessary. Tension on the hair will cause it to bounce up like an elastic band and you don't want that.
4. Take small snips in a vertical fashion until the desired effect is achieved.
Note: For side-swept bangs, we usually cut the bangs into a triangle shape with the longest piece in the middle touching the tips of the nose and the shortest part of the bags on the sides to your cheekbones.
