The only mistake you can make with the DIY haircut is to do it without the right tools and knowledge. But in some situations, you can definitely do it at home instead of splurging at the salon. Here are 3 ways to cut your own hair without the bad hair story in the end.
1. Trim Your Bangs
You will notice that your bangs grow quite fast, and sometimes, you just need to trim them a bit. The first tip is to not get them wet, and style them as you normally do. This way, you see the end result while you are cutting. Instead of cutting a straight line, do pointcuts into the fringe so that they do not look blunt and too short.
2. Remove Split Ends
Trimming your hair is good for it, especially since they can really get worse if neglected. The key is to only remove individual split ends, so do not cut too much.
3. Cut Your Hair
If you are really into trimming or removing a few inches of your hair, use the Ponytail Method. Tie your damp and brushed hair into a high ponytail, pulling it up until there is only a couple of inches between the ends and the tie. Cut straight about an inch at the ends before doing a vertical point cut to add texture.
You do not have to wait until your next salon appointment to trim your hair a bit, just make sure you follow these tips when you do so.
