Use The Right Tools
While most people assume that they could just head into their kitchen and grab the scissors to cut their own hair, we’re here to tell you that this isn’t the case. These scissors are normally incredibly blunt, so you need to ensure that you have the right tools. This means investing in some salon-grade scissors or buying a clipper set that will do the job.
Choose A Style
There’s no point going gung-ho on your hair if you don’t know how you actually want to cut it, so make sure you do some research beforehand. When you decide on the style you want, you can often find a video that shows someone – normally a professional – cutting that style. If that’s the case, you can follow the instructions.
Dampen Your Head
Once you’ve got the tools and decided on a style, it’s best to cut your hair when it’s damp. Your hair becomes much longer when it is wet, and it also becomes straighter. This allows you to make much better judgments in terms of how much you cut off, and where you want to style to end up. Plus, it’s just so much easier to run a brush through it when it’s damp!
