How-To Video: Sultry Bangs and Shag Cut

It's safe to say bangs will never go out of style. Whether the fringe comes as a part of your client's getting-over-a-breakup transformation, or just an overall desire for change, bangs are a quick and easy way to renew a sense-of-self and completely alter a look. 

In this fun how-to video, our friend and L’Oréal Professionnel ambassador Anh Co Tran (@anhcotran) demonstrates a sultry, '70s-inspired, sweeping bang to compliment a moveable, shag cut. The change is subtle enough to blend seamlessly but apparent enough to say, "Hey, I'm new here." Watch the process unfold below:

Get the look:

  • Cut the hair dry and smooth it out with a round brush prior to cutting.
  • When cutting dry, spray a generous amount of L’Oréal Professionnel Brush Proof to calm static and detangle hair. 
  • Keeping the hair for bangs up front, split the hair from the back of the head in half and part each section on a steep diagonal.
  • Bring the parted sections forward and leave one section at the back of the head to begin cutting.
  • For the first cut on the bangs, elevate the hair to about 45 degrees. 
  • For the second and third time around, elevate the hair a little bit higher. 
  • When desired length and angle is achieved, blend the bangs into the rest of the cut.
