How to Cut Triangle Bangs

 
Triangle bangs were used a lot more in the past than they are now. Sometimes they are still used with long, straighter hairstyles to give fullness in the center of the forehead.
 
As with the previous types of bangs, wet your hair, towel dry it, and comb it to check for tangles.  Parting the bang area for the triangle bangs is a bit trickier than the other types of fringes.  Part your hair down the center and comb it straight down on each side.  It's important that you have the part exactly in the center.

You now need to find the highest point at the top of your head.  This will be in the middle of the crown of your head and the hairline at your forehead.  You will probably find it 2 inches back from your forehead, right in the center.  This will be the top point of your triangle.

The 2 bottom points of your triangle will be the outer edges of your eyebrows.  Use your comb to draw a line from the top of your triangle to both of the bottom points, the outer edges of your eyebrows.
 
Comb the hair forward within the triangle.

Triangle Bangs



Use your comb to section off the top half of your triangle.  Twist it and secure it with a clip.

Comb the bottom half of the triangle forward.
 
Decide what length you would like your bangs to be.  If you are cutting your own hair and your hair is damp, you should take a very samll (1/4 inch) section of hair right at the center.  Hold it between the pointer and middle fingers of your holding hand.  Slide those fingers down to the indentation of your nose that's right between your eyes.
 
If you are cutting someone else's hair, cut a bit below the eyebrows.
 
Snip a very small section of hair to act as your guide.

Triangle Bangs




Pick up an inch of hair to the left of your first cut, 1/4 inch of that from your first cut.  This 1/4 inch is only there as a guide - it does not get recut.  Cut this section of hair to the length of your guide.  Work your way to the left, combing and checking for evenness as you go.

To do the right side, pick up a section fo hair directly to the right of your center guide (taking 1/4 inch of cut hair along with it as a guide).  Cut the hair to the length of your guide, cutting with your scissors toward the center.
 
Work your way to the right this way, always cutting with your scissors pointing toward your guide at the center (or your nose).

Triangle Bangs



Comb and chek to see that both sides are even.  Take a piece of hair from the outer ege of both sides and compare their length in the center of your forehead.  Trim to even it up if needed.

Now take loose the clip holding the top half of your triangle.  Comb the hair straight down to neaten it, and begin all over in the center.  Cut this top half of your tringle to the same length as the bottom half.  Comb and check between each cut.  Snip only small sections at a time for the most control.
