Face-Framing Magic: Curtain Bangs Tutorial with Point Cutting Techniques


Creating face-framing curtain bangs with point cutting techniques adds a soft and effortless touch to the hairstyle. Follow this step-by-step tutorial for mastering the art of curtain bangs:

1. Client Consultation:

  • Begin with a thorough consultation to understand your client's face shape, style preferences, and desired length for the curtain bangs.

2. Section the Hair:

  • Section off the hair, leaving out the front section that will be transformed into curtain bangs.
  • The width of the section can vary based on the client's preferences and face shape.

3. Determine Bangs Length:

  • Assess the length of the curtain bangs by considering the client's face shape and features.
  • Aim for a length that enhances the natural beauty of the face and complements the overall hairstyle.

4. Point Cutting Technique:

  • Begin point cutting the bangs using texturizing or point cutting scissors.
  • Hold small sections of the hair at an angle and cut into the ends with upward or downward strokes, creating a soft, feathered effect.
  • The point cutting technique helps achieve a natural and textured finish, avoiding a blunt and heavy appearance.

5. Texturize for Movement:

  • Use the point cutting scissors to add additional texture and movement to the curtain bangs.
  • Focus on the mid-lengths and ends to create a wispy and airy feel.

6. Create a Soft Curve:

  • When point cutting, shape the bangs into a soft curve following the natural flow of the face.
  • This technique helps frame the face in a flattering way.

7. Blend with the Rest of the Hair:

  • Ensure the curtain bangs seamlessly blend with the rest of the hair by incorporating point cutting to connect the layers.
  • Aim for a gradual transition from the bangs to the longer lengths of the hair.

8. Check for Balance:

  • Step back regularly to assess the balance and symmetry of the curtain bangs.
  • Make any necessary adjustments to ensure a harmonious and face-framing result.

9. Finishing Touches:

  • Dry the hair and style the curtain bangs according to your client's preference.
  • Use a round brush or styling tools to achieve the desired shape and movement.

10. Styling Tips for Clients:

  • Educate your clients on how to style and maintain their curtain bangs at home.
  • Recommend suitable styling products to enhance texture and hold.

11. Regular Maintenance:

  • Advise clients on the importance of regular trims to maintain the shape and health of their curtain bangs.
  • Offer to schedule follow-up appointments for upkeep.

12. Capture the Transformation:

  • Document the before and after shots of the curtain bangs transformation.
  • Share your work on social media to showcase your skills and attract clients interested in this trendy look.

Curtain bangs created with point cutting techniques offer a versatile and flattering framing effect for various face shapes. Mastering this skill allows you to provide your clients with a stylish and low-maintenance option for updating their hairstyle.
