If you don't already have a pair of thinning scissors in your kit, now is the time to add them. They can be a bit intimidating at first, especially with all those teeth, but they are a handy tool to have. They are great for helping you soften lines and achieve beautiful wispy bangs.
When trimming bangs with thinning shears there are a few ways they can be used. Thinning shears are best used on dry hair. You have to be careful not to cut too close to the root of the hair, or you will get hairs sticking up through out the bangs. You can section off your bangs, leaving a small section down and lift the rest of the section up. Then you take your thinning scissors and remove the corner, this will lighten the bangs and create a layered effect. Your thinning scissors can also be used to just lightly soften the ends of your bangs. Just simply dust the ends with your thinning scissors and Viola! soft, wispy bangs. A quality pair of thinning scissors like these, ourMatsui Rose Gold Thinner, will add so much to your repertoire.
Another type of hair scissors that are easily over- looked but great for bangs! Texturizing shears that are best for bangs will have around 10- 20 teeth, you can see our favouriteshere. These are especially good for thick hair and achieving a more chunky bang.
Texturizing shears are best used on hair that has been dried. Because their teeth are spread apart more than thinning shears they will remove more hair, so it is best to start slow with these guys. You've cut your clients hair to it's desired length and dried it, now is time for your texturizing shears. You can simply elevate the bang and dust the ends of the hair with the shears. If you're looking for a more textured, choppy bang you can use the edge of the texturizing shears to gently chip in to the bangs, leaving you with lots of texture and shattered lines. The choppy bang can be achieved on any length of hair and hair type. However, when using on thin hair it is best to use sparingly.
You will undoubtedly come across a few clients who have taken their bangs in to their own hands. Or even worse, try to trim the beautiful bangs you gave them at home.
