For many of us, the thought of cutting our own hair is pretty terrifying.
I’ll admit I tried it once as a teen, and let’s just say the results were so uneven that my extremely angry mom had to pay for someone to fix the damage. Since then, I’ve only trusted my super-curly hair to the professionals, but one makeup and beauty vlogger says it’s entirely possible to successfully trim the trickiest thing of all: bangs.
Camila Bravo posted a short Instagram video demonstrating how she cuts her own bangs. “Before calling me crazy, I have been cutting my own side bangs since forever ago. I love how they come out just by doing what I am showing here,” she captioned on the video.

Press Play 🎥 ✂ Before Calling me Crazy, I been cutting my own side bangs since forever ago. I love how they come out just by doing what I am showing here , so I thought I should share with you guys. 😉 ❕ If you have curly hair like myself cut them alittle lower than the actual desire length because keep in mind the hair will shrink. ♦Eyes: @motivescosmeticsElement Color Box ( use referral code Kamilabravo for 💸 Off ) ♦Lashes: @shophudabeauty in Style Marilyn.

First, she pulled together a section near the front of her hair. Then she dampened the hair and twisted the hair together before she cut through in one stroke.
“If you have curly hair like myself, cut them a little lower than the actual desired length because keep in mind the hair will shrink,” she added.
Bravo makes it look super easy, of course, because she’s already a pro at it. But if you’re still worried about messing it up, you can follow this step-by-step guide to getting the perfect bangs without accidentally shaving your head.
Spring is the perfect time to try out a new style, so show off that fringe — no matter if you DIY or enlist the help of a professional.
