Not only does it build customer loyalty, it provides your hairdresser with the opportunity to tell you about all the latest new styles and hair care products. It also helps prevent customers from cutting their own bangs and making a gigantic hair mess.
If you're unsure if you qualify for this service, ask your hairdresser the next time your visit. Of course not all hairdressers or salons offer this type of service, but it never hurts to ask.
Even when the services are available to loyal customers, many do not take advantage of the option. Why? Mainly time constraints. Taking the time to get to the salon for the service may be more of a hassle for many people than actually taking the scissors to their hair at home.
If you're one of those people with a jam packed schedule and pesky overgrown bangs, you can benefit from learning to trim your own fringe in the privacy of your bathroom.
Follow the steps below to trim your own pre-existing bangs:
1. Never try and cut your bangs while your hair is bone dry. Wet your hair with a spritz of water from a clean spray bottle.
2. Use your fingers to separate out a small section of hair (approximately 1/2 to 1" of hair) from the rest of the fringe. Pull the section of hair down as far down as possible. Clip the rest of the hair out of the way so you can focus on one section at a tmie.
3. Twist the target section of fringe hair one time.
4. Trim the section just below your eyes.
Always cut about an inch longer than the line you may eventuall want. Bangs will naturally bounce up a bit.
If your fringe turns out to be too long, you can go back over it, but always err on the side of too long rather than too short.
