DO YOU CUT YOUR OWN HAIR?
I bring this post to you based on my own personal experiences… Cut thy hair at your own risk.
First let’s start off on cutting someone else’s hair. My husband is 50% bald and his hair is pretty thin. Before I came along he was going to a professional barber shop and paying money for them to use one razor size, move it around his head 10-12 times and collect his money.
We went out and bought a nice little razor kit, with adjustable clips and I have been cutting his hair..FOR FREE for the past 10 years.
It’s pretty easy but you should know there is a little bit of skill required. You want to make sure the hairline is straight, you get all the hair around the ears and that everything is even. It’s hard to mess up, but … you can and I have, like using the wrong size clip…oops!
This idea is great for kids too, especially in the summer time when you buzz the crap out of their head to stay cool.
It’s a great way to save time and money, especially when you are in a pinch.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE
Moving onto your own hair, in this demonstration we are talking about shorter hair styles.
I’ve had short hair for most of my life and I’m not your typical girly girl, I don’t go to the salon and pay millions of dollars for cuts and colors. I’ll spend $15 at your local Great Clips but my hair grows so fast and thick that I would need to go there a lot to maintain my cut.
Especially now that I went with the stylish shaved side, it would be really silly for me to pay money every week to keep that appearance up. Plus my hair is short and purposely uneven that it’s hard to mess it up. If the sides start getting too long, I take some scissors and cut a little bit here and there. When my hair starts growing back, I take out the razor and shave it back down.
However, it can only work to a point because eventually the top gets longer, the back is out of control and those are the parts of the hair that you should probably have done by a professional.
Just recently I was having some issues with a a few pieces of hair that would not comb over, they would stick straight up and it was becoming very annoying. So, I just took some scissors and cut the WHOLE thing off. I recommend not getting too carried away, it can happen to the best of us. One minuet you’re doing a little trimming and the next thing you know you have a sink full of hair.
I must have felt invincible that day and without any proper training continued to hack away at my thick locks. Pretty sure that was a bad idea, because that left me with a spot on my head that looked like fuzzy barbie doll hair.
Good thing for me, I seemed to be the only one that could tell. Haha
IN THE END
Remember, when you finally do get around to actually going somewhere to have it cut… you’ll have to explain to the person what happened.
I just recently went and the first thing I said was “oh, don’t mind that… It was out of control and I cut it off.” She definitely noticed (we shared a chuckle) and as I was walking out the door she told me to never cut my hair again, lol.
The ladies at Great Clips were awesome, we had a great time and laughed a lot. Mostly because I am hilarious but I give them props for having a sense of humor. When all was said and done I left feeling 20 pounds lighter and looked like a human being once again.
I say, If you’re creative and have a little bit of an idea of what you are doing when cutting your own hair, GO FOR IT! Just know when to stop and seek help.
Thank you for stopping by! Appreciate the love.
