Make your own clips in bangs for a no-maintenance hair style.
This little DIY that can totally change your hair but doesn't require any awkward cutting or growing out periods. The other day I was out shopping and saw clip in bangs. They looked pretty cool but were uber expensive so I decided to make my own. The only downside to the DIY version is that you have to wear a ribbon to cover the seam but there's nothing wrong with a little encouragement to decorate yourself with bows right?

    Finally cut your bangs. It's better to cut a little at a time than to suddenly realise you've cut it way too short.
