        Comments about Bango Hair Cutting Kit:

        This products is absolutely amazing! It is so easy to use and your bangs are perfect every time.
        It's great because you can trim just a little each time. Sometimes at the salon they cut a little too much and your bangs have to grow in to look good. Then if you go to the salon you usually wait and they grow so quickly, you have to visit the salon again. With Bango it's like having your own personal stylist on call any time you wish!

          This will actually pay for itself in one use. My bangs always need trimming in between haircuts. The Bango was simple to use, quick, and did a superb job.

              I bought this in Ulta and tried it out. I wasn't so sure that it would work because I've tried things before that ended up wrecking my hair.

              I learned how to maintain my bangs because my hair stylist showed me. The trick is not to cust straight across, but to cut up into the bang - so the notches on the Bango make sense to me.

              I have a cowlick on one side, so it's important that the bangs are a little longer on that side or else the bangs will be crooked.

              I used the curved side first and because I didn't know any better, I used my left hand (I'm right-handed) and made sure that the "Bango" logo was visible. It gripped the hair well but I wanted to be cautious, so I trimmed about 1/2 inch below the notches.

              Then I used the straight side and attached it using my right hand and I had more control. Trimmed a little bit more, up into the notches - followed the pattern to cut up. I could see the results were fuller.

              It dawned on me that I could use the curved side with my right hand and have more control over the placement - by turning it over so that the Bango logo wasn't visible in the mirror.

              Trimmed a little more and could see the results were good. I reattached the Bango and pulled to the spot where I wanted the ends of my bangs and used the curved side notches. Bangs are perfect.

              The Bango holds the hair in place and if you follow the notch pattern, you will get good results. If you don't follow the notches, your bangs will look stringy.

              These instructions should have been included:

              If you're left handed and want to use the straight side, just flip it over so that the Bango logo isn't visible.

              If you're right handed and want to use the curved side, just flip it over so that the Bango logo isn't visible.

              You don't need the 2 extra black clips unless you're cutting your bangs for the first time - which I wouldn't recommend doing on your own - ask your stylist to cut them and follow the hair line when you use the Bango.

              The little comb is not needed either. I used my own hair cutting scissors which are sharper than than the ones in the kit.

              But I do think $15.99 is a good price for the clip.

                  Real easy to use. I stumbled on this when I was at the Ulta Store. I wear wet sets and enjoy using the bango for my bang and used it to trim my entire hair. My curls have last past a week. I think I am on to something. I have adult daughters and one of them took my bango. I have to order another one. This is a great product and enjoy using it.

                          This was tough to rate. The bango tool is actually pretty useful. I like to touch up my bangs between salon visits and this took some of the guess work out of it. If they sold just the clip for $5-8 I would probably have rated this 5 stars. The problem is the rest of the kit. Utterly useless. I think they just didn't want to sell lower cost clips but I think they'd probably make more money so I'll just put it down to a bad decision. First: the scissors are terrible. Do not use them to cut your hair. The "sectioning" clips are unnecessary. The 10 cent comb is ridiculous. And a cd? Really? Add a youtube link. Bottom line: 5 star for the clip, 1 star for everything else.

                          I use the BANGO between haircuts to trim my bangs area when/where needed. I like my bangs kinda jagged so the BANGO is perfect for my needs. I bought one for my sister too (so she'd stop "borrowing" mine -- haha).

                              I was really excited to see this product in the store after reading about it in a magazine. I have bangs, but I hate having to go to the hair salon to get them trimmed, especially since I have been growing the rest of my hair out. I thought this product would be a great way to keep my bangs looking chic rather than sloppy.

                              Unfortunately, this product is much harder to use than you would think. I loved the idea that it had notches in it and was slightly curved in order to achieve a slightly choppy look, BUT, it is practically impossible to hold the clip straight and try to cut into the notches while looking in the mirror. I struggled with it and wound up with very uneven fringe and had to go to the salon to have it fixed. This might work if you have someone else who can do it for you, but that kind of defeats the purpose for me. Had to return it.

                              Just go to the salon, most places will trim your bangs for free as long as you're a current client!
