If you have medium to long hair, you can trim your hair no problem. Its easy to do if you have a good set of shears! This is especially useful when you've got split ends and usually go to a hairdresser to get them cut. You'll save money plus do a great job!
Split ends can be a real problem when you style your hair a lot. They can give you frizzy hair and look pretty bad. The other bad part about split ends, is that once they happen, they will continue to split up towards your head if you don't get rid of them!
Times are hard right now, so cutting a few corners is a great way to save a few bucks. Spend the money instead on makeup or hair products that help you style your hair!
This video will explain to you how to trim your hair. You will need to have a good sharp set of scissors to do the trim. Its also a technique that works better on straight hair. For that reason, if you have curly hair, straighten it before you cut it or just cut it while it's wet.
Hair shrinks when it gets dry so if you cut it when it's wet, allow a little extra length. The most important thing to remember is that you must use the same tension when you hold your hair down to make the cut(s).
Start slowly and think through what you're doing before you make the cuts. If you are unsure, get your mom to help or just don't cut as much. You can always take more off later!
Remember too, no one trim is perfect! Who cares! Stop sweating the small stuff and just relax and enjoy it. 1/8" or 1/4" off isn't going to show up. If anyone notices, tell them to get a life!
