If you've tackled the at-home mani and DIY pedi, figured out how to give yourself a facial, wax your own stubble, and mastered dyeing your own hair, you might start to wonder if you can save a few more bucks by nixing those frequent salon trims and learning how to cut your own bangs. And, hey, if you can't get to the salon for the foreseeable future? Well, this skill might be downright necessary to learn.

But just how hard is it to trim your own fringe? While possible, experts warn that it is a risky endeavor. Fae Norris, a hairstylist at Rock Paper Salon in Los Angeles says, "The angles are awkward, cowlicks often slip through, and shrinkage is a possibility." Plus, since bangs are front and center on your face, it's hard to hide any potential mistakes, she explains.

That doesn't mean you have to live with that awkward in-between stage or let your beloved face-framing strands grow out. With the right tools, a steady hand, and a little bit of guidance from the pros who know best, it's totally possible to cut your own bangs at home without ever uttering the words "oh... snip!" (Even if it's the first time you've ever tried the style!)
