When I had my fringe chopped off a few weeks ago, many people were shocked and asked why the change because I have had the same hairstyle for ages. I’m a well-organized person and I like to plan for everything but I can get very random at times, which I think is important to change the rules a little, taking a step back and enjoy what life is all about. Living it!
Let me tell you a secret. The reason why I chopped off my fringe was because I saw this Bangs Cut Supporter at Mr. DIY. Immediately I thought I could easily do the first cut at home and then do follow-up trimming at home whenever needed.
So as I said earlier, I assume that I would be able to do the first fringe cut at home easily with this tool. I don’t think it will be hard but I was afraid. After all it’s the first cut. I wouldn’t want to mess up and having to live with badly cut fringe for a few weeks 😀 . So I went to a hair salon. Honestly speaking, I don’t think so the salon did a good job either. I hated my fringe for the first two weeks. When the hair started to grow out and I was heading to Penang, I had them comb to the side again as I knew I would get all sweaty in Penang. On the same night I was back to KL, I took out this Bangs Cut Supporter to trim my fringe.
This weird but useful tool is selling for just RM6.90 at Mr. DIY. The good thing about Mr. DIY is that there are no price increase nor do I need to pay GST separately. All GST are absorbed by Mr. DIY! The tool comes in a 3-piece, which requires a little installation before use and dismantling after using (unless you ditch the box).
This is the hilarious part. It’s absolutely hideous but a girl gotta do what a girl gotta do. My original fringe from the salon are way too wide so I took off some hair from the left and right, put a bobby pin to keep them away and gather the hair that I wanted to trim to the ‘uneven comb’. However I find myself not able to see anything clearly from the plastic pocket which catches all the hair. It won’t be a problem if you do it slowly. Sometimes I get my mum to trim for me 🙂
What’s cool about this tool is that not only the uneven comb helped to create a natural zig zag trim, the plastic pocket protects the face and eyes from hair and it catches the hair from the trim. What’s not to love right?
Here’s the result. This is my second trimming using the same Bangs Cut Supporter. First trim was more straight, which I don’t really like. I like the second trim more where it’s more uneven. The more uneven the bangs are, the nicer it is 😀
My hair grows out on a super fast rate. I thought the toughest thing to go through having a fringe is the itchiness on the forehead despite everyone telling me it’s the trimming. Now that my forehead has gotten used to having a fringe, I find that the constant trimming is pretty annoying, just like what my friends warned 😀 . I trim mine once every week. Another challenge for me is to ‘make’ the fringe stays in place whenever I’m going out. Yes, having a fringe really takes effort and time. And yet I don’t regret having it 😉
