How to Cut Middle Part Bangs

Step 1: If your hair is straight, dampening your hair could be helpful. However, if your hair is naturally curly, it is best to leave it dry.

Step 2: Part your hair in the middle. Then decide how wide you want your bangs to be and once you take the bangs section into your hand, you’ll notice that a triangular shape has formed. Make sure that the triangle is symmetrical.

Step 3: Separate the rest of the hair from the bangs by tying it into a ponytail.

Step 4: The rest depends on the style of bangs you’re going for. If you’re going for shorter bangs, try to make them as straight as possible, and if the bangs go below your eyebrows or eyes cut them diagonally.

Step 5: Blow-dry and style your bangs. Check if there are some strands that need fixing.

FAQs

Q. Which Face Shape is Perfect for Middle Part Bangs?

Ans: The oval face shape is considered to be the perfect face shape for almost any hairstyle, and middle part bangs are no exception to this rule. However, if cut and styled properly, other face shapes can look great with the middle part bangs as well.

If the middle part bangs are layered or cut in a crescent shape, they can complement the square-shaped face really nicely, softening its harshness really nicely.

For heart-shaped faces, it is important to either leave the bangs a bit longer so that you could part them in the middle entirely or at least to leave them a bit longer on the sides so that the forehead would appear less wide.

 

Q. Can Short Bangs Be Middle Parted?

Ans: This depends mostly on how short we’re talking about. It would be really hard and it would require a lot of hair product to part short bangs anywhere. It would also look unnatural and probably not so flattering. However, short bangs could, of course, look beautiful if the rest of the hair behind it was parted in the middle.
