For some people, going to the hair salon is an enjoyable experience. For others, it is something that they would rather not do. Whether it is because of the cost or other factors, if you decide to cut your own hair, here is how to do a quick layered haircut.
The tools you will need are:
1) A comb
2) Shears or hair cutting sharp scissors
3) Hair clip
4) A mirror
Cutting hair is not a big deal and doing it yourself can save you lots of money and time. Eliminate the dependency on your hair stylist!!!! Follow these easy steps to cut your own hair in layers and have fun!
1) Shampoo and condition your hair, as wet and conditioned hair is easier to comb and cut.
2) Comb your hair as straight as you can
3) Bend over, flip your head upside- down, so that the crown of your head points toward the floor.
4) Comb all your hair straight down so it hangs neatly. (All of your hair, including that at the nape of your neck, should point toward the floor.)
5) Gather your hair into a high ponytail as close to your front hairline as possible and secure it with a hair clip.
6) Choose a length that you want to cut. It's always a good idea to cut it slightly longer than you want. You can always cut it a bit shorter.
7) Begin cutting a straight line across the ponytail. Cutting a straight line will automatically layer your hair, as you are cutting across many different lengths of hair while they hang down. (Each hair will be at the same length)
8) Finish cutting the straight line, unsecure your hairclip, shake your hair loose and flip your head back up.
9) Comb your hair straight again.
10) Refine your layers by combing small sections and holding them between your pointer and middle finger with the ends pointing up. Snip off any stragglers.
11)Cut bangs by combing a section above your forehead down across your eyes. Be careful not to include side hairs. Comb them straight, take your bangs between your index and middle fingers and pull them down and carefully trim all the way across. Check the length and repeat if necessary. Remember to cut across for a straight bang or cut diagonal (angled) for a side-swept bangs that fall across the eyes. Don't try to trim too much length at once. You can make the line of your bangs less blunt-looking by diagonally cutting the tips of a few strands of hair across your bangs. Be careful not to overdo.
This is how i cut my own hair and bangs!
Layering your own hair perfectly takes time and attention to make sure every strand is at the same length. Consider help from a friend. The biggest piece of advice I can give you in learning how to cut your own hair is to only trim off a little at a time until you are more comfortable with it. You can always go back to trim more if you need to.
Additionally, do not become scissor-happy with your own hair. I have a habit of trimming once a month. The truth is that it's practically impossible to eliminate every split end on your head. There's no need to be manic about split ends. So, determine a trimming schedule and stick to it.
