Tips For Not Relying on a Hairdresser to Get That Cut

Have you ever felt the urge to cut your hair? Actually, that’s probably a silly question. We have a feeling that most people have looked at themselves in the mirror and felt the pull of the scissors or the clippers next to them, but there’s a high chance that you probably talked yourself out of it. After all, it’s a bad idea, isn’t it? Well, not necessarily. Follow these top tips for cutting your own hair!

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!
