How to Cut Bangs Video Tutorial

Since I know how hard it can be to start out cutting and styling your first wig, I made a video tutorial on how to cut bangs into a wig and posted it up on Youtube. As long as it helps atleast one person, then I know my efforts weren't in vain.
I'll be posting other video wig tutorials as well, once I have the time to get around to it. Such as the Hot Water Straightening Method, Sharpie Wig Dyeing, certain character wigs, bleaching and dyeing hair, etc. Basically whatever people find they think there needs to be a video tutorial for.
In the tutorial I'm basically using Tristen Citrine's tutorial method to cut the bangs (since that how I learned how to cut bangs), and hope that its alright to post it up as long as I credit her for that ^^;; (or else I can just put it down and that's fine with me).
Enjoy~!

thank you for doing the clip. It's always helpful seeing a video. So after you cut the 2 layers with the razor, did you just know which section belonged to the top and which belonged to the bottom layers by experience?

Well you should be able to differentiate which hairs belong to the bottom layers and the top layers since the bottom ones were cut shorter than the top ones. Plus I had seperated them, making them a perfect line with the pointy end of the comb, which made it easier to find where the bottom layer became the top layer.

I have a feeling this is going to help a LOT of people who have problems getting their heads around the cutting bangs concept. I've come to find that every new wig stylist's greatest fear is cutting. I'm totally adding this to the wig FAQ! Great job!

Wow, those two vids were so much help! Thanks! By the way, you're very pretty/cute! Really! Are you Chinese or Japanese?

Thank you for the support, I'm glad to be able to help people.

Nanao-Chan - Awww *blush*, thank you. Honestly I like to keep my nationality a secret, it seems as I grew up no one could guess what nationality I was. So now only my closest friends and family know, it's just more fun to keep people guessing ^^;;. I will say that I'm 100% asian though lol.

It so hard to guess because you look like you could be Japanese, Chinese, or Korean! Anyway, in the tutorial video where you dyed your hair pink and blonde, were you wearing thick mascara on your eyelashes?

Yea, normally I wear bright blue or grey contacts as well and that tends to make it even hard to guess. Ummm, I believe I was wearing false eyelashes, with mascara on top. Then also black eyeshadow (Bare Minerals in Humor and NYX in Matte Black), some Ben Nye Silver Lumiere Lux powder on my inner eye corners, and black liquid eyeliner (Prestige in Black) for a light smokey eye look. On camera it just looks like I have really thick eye lashes and some black eye shadow XD.

Were you looking in a mirror when you were styling your hair or were you just looking at a camera? By the way, are those Tokidoki statues in the back ground on the wall shelf? I want a tokidoki statue so badly!

I was just using the small LCD screen on the camcorder to look while styling my hair. I'm a fan of Simone Legno's Tokidoki, even though you can't see it in the video there are more of my Tokidoki figurene and bag collection to the left of the screen.

Oh wow! I'd get a Tokidoki bag if I could but I just think they cost a lot of money. I dunno, whenever I see one aorund again I'll see if I can get one. I just love the cute little characters!

Wow, I never knew that a video would be so much easier to follow than just pictures. All tutorial makers should make videos! Also, thank you so much for the tutorial, it gave me great knowledge that I only sort of knew before! ^__^

Just a question about the razor-cutting step. What kind of razor are you using in the video? Its kind of hard for me to tell.
