NEEDED TO CUT YOUR OWN HAIR.
Learning to cut your own hair might just be easier than you think. All you need to know is a few basics and you will find that you will not only have a lot of fun with this, but you will save yourself a good bit of money as well. It is important though that when you are learning the steps for how to cut hair, that you pay very close attention. This way, you will not end up with a hair cut that actually looks like you cut it yourself.
With enough patience and the right help, you can cut your own hair and make it look just like it was done by the professionals. One of the first things that you are going to have to do is to determine just where you want the new length of your hair to fall and take note of how much hair you are going to have to cut off. Next, you are going to want to grab your sharpest hair cutting scissors and set those aside.
Shampoo and rinse your hair. Now, put conditioner in your hair but do not rinse this out just yet. By leaving the conditioner in your hair, it is going to be much easier to comb out your hair. You will want to now comb your hair into a pony tail that sits upon the very top of your head. It is very important here to make sure that you are keeping the sides of your hair coming up the side, the front hairs coming up the front and the back hairs coming up into the pony tail from the back.
Now you will want to tightly twist your hair into a nice spiral and then cut off the length that you had already decided needed to come off. Comb the pony tail end again, just to make sure that you are able to get any stragglers if there are any left behind. If you would like to add a layer in there, you will want to un-do your pony tail and comb it out.
Part your hair, all the way around, about an inch above the ear, if you have longer hair. Repeat the same process for the top section and when it is all said and done, you should have a nice layer in your hair. Rinse the conditioner out now, dry your hair and style it as you usually do. You should be able to see just what a difference you made.
As you can clearly see, learning how to cut hair is not really all that hard to do, even when it is your own. However, if you have never cut your own hair before, you are going to want to make sure that you are taking your time with it.
