  1. 1

    Stand in front of a mirror with good lighting to view the hair. Comb the fringe using a wide tooth comb to remove tangles.

  2. 2

    Brush fringe straight down in front of the forehead. Secure the remainder of the hair with a hair clip.

  3. 3

    Grasp a section of the fringe between the index and middle fingers. Slide the fingers down the hair, stopping ¼ inch from the point of cutting. Cut the excess hair below the fingers using a scissor.

  4. 4

    Hold the scissors vertically, pointing the tip upward, while holding the top of the fringe near the hairline. Make a small snip at a 45-degree angle into the fringe to create a "V" shape. Continue cutting at different angles across the fringe to create a choppy look.

  5. 5

    Remove the small pieces of hair stuck to the face, neck or clothing with a hairdryer.
