Work towards the outer brow, gradually allowing the hair to get slightly longer, snipping in an arched manner.
If you're playing with the idea of snipping some of your length, why not start with the bangs and test drive a new look?
If you have color or chemical treatments and suffer from breakage and split ends, snipping off a few inches while incorporating layers will breathe new life and healthy shine to your hair.
After snipping off the ends, use the pen to mark the center point on each skewer.
However, since you can't add the rubber back on, make sure the strap is exactly the size you need before snipping.
