BEFORE: MY DAUGHTERS PRE-CUT HAIR
Meet my daughter! As you can see from the photo, her hair is thick with a slight wave. Hair with waves is easier to cut, since imperfections are less noticeable. However, with care this method will work on very straight hair as well!
Just tried this on myself. So simple! I can’t believe I’d never heard of this before. So glad to have found this!!” -MrsMcAteer
STEP 1. COMB: SMOOTH ALL YOUR HAIR FORWARD
Here is how to cut your own hair in five minutes:
First, wash and condition the hair, then comb it all from underneath, smoothing everything to the front.
This is brilliant. I just tried it and am really pleased with the result. I’d been wanting to get my hair cut again, but couldn’t afford to. I don’t think I’ll ever need to pay a hair-dresser again. Thank you.” -Shelley
STEP 2. PONYTAIL: SECURE AT THE FRONT
Next, gather it all into a ponytail on the forehead, securing with a ponytail holder.
If you usually wear your hair parted to one side, then position the ponytail on that side, directly in front of where your part would be.
The more you pull the hair forward, the more layers you will have. The pony at the top of the head would give you longer layers, and not as many.
STEP 3. CUT: STRAIGHT ACROSS THE END
Then, making sure the hair is all combed out as smoothly as possible, and using your fingers as a guide, either just cut straight across the ends, or use little vertical snips to cut across the ends.
Comb out, and you’re done!* That’s it!
- Five Minutes!
- Incredibly beautiful results!
*The “after” photo was color edited, but the curls are all natural. The new layers brought out the curls, with a little spray gel and light scrunching.
