Even though we would all like to always go to the spa or salon of our choice and get the luxury treatments we want. But as this pandemic has decided to stay way longer than anyone of us had anticipated, desperate times call for desperate measures.
This means that this is the perfect time to give yourself a haircut at home. But wait, before you grab onto those stationary scissors of yours, you might want to go ahead and read this because more often than not, cutting your hair goes wrong.
We’re going to make you go through some simple dos and don’ts of cutting your hair at home so you can avoid all the errors possible. Always watch a video or a tutorial by a certain professional before getting on with cutting your own hair. It’ll take you an extra 10 minutes, but those extra minutes will all be worth your results because these professionals sure know a lot about what we don’t.
It is best to cut your hair in the washroom in front of a mirror before taking a shower. That way you can avoid getting your hair stuck in your carpet for weeks and making a mess in your own room. Avoid making your hair wet before cutting or cutting onto wet hair.
When your hair gets dry it goes up which means that the length of your wet hair is actually longer than when it’s dry due to the water weighing it down at the time. So, cut it dry instead to get the actual length you are going for.
Do not cut across your hair in abrupt blunts because you’re least likely to ever cut them straight and it will end up looking very chunky. While you’re at it, always cut your hair longer than you want because as much as you try to avoid it, you’ll most like take off more than you’ve actually wanted to.
always work with dry hair, that way you will be able to see your split ends more clearly and the damage will appear better. Moreover, put your hair down while you’re cutting it rather than lifting it up and bringing it closer to your face before cutting it because when it will be down to its original length, you will be actually knowing how much of your length you are trimming.
Pro-tip; Always section your hair while you’re cutting it yourself. Start parting your hair from the center of your head from the front all the way to the back splitting your hair into two parts. Then again part your hair from ear to year to part your hair into four sections.
This will give you four clear sections of your hair to work with and make your life easier during this already pandemic stricken situation. Follow these directions and there is no way you will go wrong about cutting your own hair.
