TWICE Momo is famous for her outstanding dance skills, but she is also known for her cute bangs, which she has been keeping since her debut.
There are some variations of her bangs such as heavy bangs and see-through bangs, and there are many people who want to make Momo-like bangs because of its cuteness. I will introduce how to make such Twice Momo Bangs.
How to Make Momo Bangs ① See-through Bangs
See-through bangs is light bangs, foreheads and eyebrows can be seen through thinly, making it easy to see changes in facial expressions and giving an emotional impression.
Speaking of Momo, this is her well-known bangs! See-through bangs are not too young compared to heavy bangs, yet they appeared to be clean bangs, and are extremely popular in Japan.
Points When Cutting
1. Develop Babits Before Cutting
Before cutting your bangs, lightly moisten it with water and blow it with a hairdryer to develop your habit. Take a small number of bangs and shape it so that the tip of the hair you want to trim starts from the hairline becomes an isosceles triangle.
When you have an isosceles triangle, divide the hair bundle into three pieces and pin the hair on both sides to prevent accidental cutting.
2. Use “Cut Scissors” Instead of Plow Scissors
When you hear only the name see-through bang, you may wonder if you use plow scissors because it reduces the number of bangs. However, if you use plow scissors, it will become squishy and clunky, so use normal cut scissors. Of the three blocked hair bundles, cut from the middle hair bundle.
What you should pay attention to when cutting is not to cut to the desired length suddenly, but first cut to a long length under the eyes. Then gradually fine-tune to the best length and cut.
3. Connect Both Sides to the Middle Length
Remove the pins on both sides and cut, them while adjusting the bangs cut in the middle and the hair on the sides so that they are connected but become longer toward the temples. As an image, it is a good idea to cut it in a semicircle. If you are worried about self-cutting, you can actually show the see-through bang image of the peach to the beautician and order it.
How to Make a See-through Bangs Without a Cut
If you want to make see-through bangs but don’t want to cut them, pick up the upper half of your bangs. We recommend about half the amount of eyebrows and forehead that can be seen through the gaps in the bangs. After shaping the hanging bangs, fasten the hair raised with a hairpin to complete the see-through bangs range.
Also, instead of pinning it, it’s cute to try half-up with the bangs raised like this one.
The number of bangs to be pulled down can be changed according to the mood and taste of the day, and above all, there is no regret after cutting. If you are hesitant to make a see-through bang, why not give it a try.
Points for Hair Makeup
Even if you make see-through bangs like Momo’s, it will not make sense because if you can’t make cute hair, you’ll end up with just squishy bangs. So, let’s try to get a clean see-through bang by imitating the hair makeup method that Momo herself actually does. Momo is good, and I have been witnessed wearing magic curlers at shooting sites.
Since the see-through bangs have a small amount of hair, it is cuter if you use a curler or wrap it with a trowel to make it fluffy, and you can make Momo-like see-through bangs. If the curlers are too thin, the curlers will be rolled too tightly and will look awkward, so choose the one with the appropriate thickness according to the length of your bangs.
I recommend the 32mm curler. Wrap it around the curlers from the tips to the roots, apply a hairdryer, and then add habit. Then just remove the curlers and lightly trim them with a hand comb to complete the fluffy see-through bangs. Lightly sprinkle keep mist on the finish for long-lasting fluffy hair make-up.
Unlike irons, curlers do less heat damage, and above all, they are very easy, so please give them a try.
How to Make Momo Bangs ② Doll Straight Bangs
Other than the see-through bangs, the popular Momo bangs are straight bangs that are trimmed like a doll. Unlike the light and transparent see-through bangs, it is heavier and the forehead and eyebrows are not visible. And the biggest feature of doll straight bangs is that the side bangs that connect from the length of the bangs above the eyes are trimmed along the chin line.
The doll’s straight bangs are also known as “Hime Cut” because they are bangs with a modern twist on the traditional Japanese hairstyle that has been passed down since ancient times.
Points When Cutting
When making doll straight bangs, please use ordinary “cut scissors”. And before making the side princess hair, first, cut it into straight bangs. Cut carefully while making small adjustments so that the eyebrows are hidden and the length is not visible. At this time, be careful not to make the width of your bangs too wide.
Next, decide how much hair to hang on the side. Put your hair on your ears and take the hair little by little from your temples to determine the number of hair bundles while looking at the overall balance. Once you have decided on the number of hair bundles, tie the rest of the hair so that you don’t accidentally cut it. After blocking, cut the hair on the side.
There are two types of doll bangs, a parallel type, and a front-down shape, but since the peach doll bangs are parallel, cut them in parallel. Since the length is the line of the chin, first cut it slightly longer than the chin, and then cut it little by little to prevent overcutting.
Points for Hair Makeup
Momo’s doll’s straight bangs are straight with thick and heavy stones, so let’s make straight hair like Momo. First of all, what you need for hair makeup is a straight iron. If the temperature of the curling iron is too high, the damage to the hair will be too great, so set the temperature below 160 degrees.
However, do not apply the curling iron directly to your hair. If you apply the curling iron directly to the hair, the damage will be too strong and it will cause hair troubles such as split ends and hair breaks, so be sure to put hair milk, etc. on the hair and be prepared to protect it from heat.
After protecting your hair, take a small amount of the hair you want to straighten into a bundle and iron it while pulling it straight down. At this time, be careful not to apply the iron for too long. In particular, the ends of the hair are easily damaged, so keep the ends of the hair lightly slid. To finish, apply a straight-keeping spray or wax to keep it in shape, and you’re done.
