These tutorials are just a suggestion. If you don’t feel comfortable taking scissors to your wig you really should seek out a professional to cut it for you. Many a wig have been ruined in less than 5 minutes, and if your wig is expensive and you ruin it, that’s really gonna sting! The Giselle by Jaclyn Smith that I’m wearing in my wig review is my second Giselle. Giselle #1 was hacked to death by scissors little by little over a couple of weeks. Most brick and mortar wig shops offer wig cutting services. Wigs by Patti’s Pearls.com offers free wig cutting and wig cap sizing on Jon Renau wigs purchased from her website. Gallery of Wigs.com offers wig cutting services for around $40, plus shipping if you did not buy the wig from them. If you decide take matters into your own hands, be very very very careful, and good luck! –Lori
Wear your wig when you’re cutting the bangs and make sure you have it positioned evenly above your ears, and not too low on your forehead. Wig heads are not proportioned like a normal face and you want to make sure you don’t cut the bangs too short.
Step 1 – Comb the desired amount of bangs that you want to cut to the front.
Step 2 – Divide into small 4 sections of hair.
Step 3 – Pinch each section of hair and ….always cut longer than you need because you’re pulling the hair down to cut, and then it springs back up, so if you want bangs to fall along the line of your eyebrow, cut them at the middle of your eyeball -or- ½ inch under your eyebrow.
Step 4 – If you’re using a razor, no sawing, use an up and down motion if it doesn’t cut through all at once. If you’re using a scissor make sure it’s sharp.
Step 1 – Separate the hair at the ear. Pull the hair in front of the ears forward and clip if needed. You’ll just be working with the back of the hair behind the ears.
Step 2 – Lift up the top section of hair three wefts below the crown all around…
Step 3 – and clip it up.
Step 4 – Make sure you are using thinning shears.
Step 5 – Separate the back into 3 or 4 sections. Take one section at a time and thin on each side of the section, about 3-4 inches down.
Step 5 – Repeat for each section.
