I’ve been trimming my own locks for the past few years and have perfected a method that combines the home haircut tips of the awesome How To Hair Girl + some extra little snips of my own to create my perfect DIY trim:
Grab your scissors & let’s get chopping!
Invest in a good pair of stainless steel hair cutting scissors.
(I got mine brand new from ebay for a mere €6)
As I have crazy thick curly in some spots & wavy in others hair, I straighten it before starting for a clearer view of how much to chop off.
Brush all of your hair forward & tie it into a ponytail right in the center of your forehead.
Decide how much you’d like to cut , grasp the hair between your fingers and chop on through.
Pull out the ponytail, give your hair a shake & marvel at your lovely perfect layers!
But wait! The ponytail cut didn’t quite reach the very ends of your locks!
No problem! Simply separate your hair into two low pigtails & evenly trim up the ends!
Hooray! Perfectly trimmed hair in about 10 minutes – for free!
