Any Advantages For Men With Bangs?
Sure why not? Some men are very vain and like to make their eyes stand out more, cover up blemishes/acne, make their forehead appear smaller, make nose slimmer looking or maybe just to give them that extra fashion look.
How to Create Your Own Side Bang
Keep in mind once you cut bangs you can’t get rid of them until they grow out. So make sure you practice combing your hair to the side first to make sure it’s what you really want. By combing the hair for a few days to the side it will help train your bangs to go that way when you cut them.
Once you decide the bangs are right for you begin with the cutting procedure. Make sure the hair is dry, and you start longer first. You can always cut more off if they are too long at the end.
Start with a regular straight across bang. Make sure you take a thin section at first. You can always go back and make them thicker. Pin back the rest of the hair with a clip.
Hold the bangs at an angel (to the side preferred)Holding your hand up cut diagonally down until you finish cutting the desired length off. To give the bangs more texture, hold the bangs outwards and chip into them slightly using the scissor blade.
Create Your Own Messy Full Bang
Section the hair on top. Figure out how thick you want the bangs to be. Once you have chosen the thickness, comb the bangs straight down. Hold the bangs with your second and third finger and pull them down. Place the scissors in the other hand and start cutting. Cut across. Then pull small section of the bangs up and layer them. Style the hair messy. If the bangs are still too thick for your preference, chip into them slightly to remove some of the heaviness.
Maintenance On The Bangs
Sorry guys bangs do require upkeep, especially if they get too long and out of shape. They should be trimmed at least every 3-5 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows. Keep the style going by using hair gels, mousse, pomades or texturizing spray.
