Greetings from Halifax, Canada!
I happened upon your website while trying to decide whether to go for Betty bangs or not.
I just love retro inspired looks, and figured some Betty Bangs would be a step up from my "emo-ish" side bangs.
They really complete a polished look and instant glam.
I find if you add a few clip-in hairpieces (preferably in colours that pop; so if you have dark brown-black hair, try red).
Tips For Cutting Retro Bangs
For my bangs, I kept them on the longer side (compared with a lot of rockabilly looks) and used my eyebrows as guides to cut around.
At first I had quite a pronounced "V" in the center, and decided that a rounded shape suited my face better.
The most difficult aspect to cutting your own Betty Bangs is to decide how far back to start them; I just used my stylist-cut side bangs as a guide.
I do find myself constantly making slight trims to get them "just right".
