Any stylist is going to encourage you to wait as long as possible before cutting your own hair, but if you want to try this experience you better follow these advices!
1 – Choose a pair of styling shears.
Remember! The dull edges could potentially give you even more split ends. Instead, invest in a pair of razor-sharp styling shears designed specifically for the task, like Equinox Professional Shears. This will give you the best-looking cut possible.
2 – Cut less than you think you need to.
If you’re cutting your hair while it’s wet, remember it will look even shorter once it dries.
3 – Don’t cut across the ends of your hair in a straight line
The reasons are: a) you’ll never get it straight and b) it’ll look really chunky and blocky.
4 – ‘Section your hair.
Take a centre parting from the centre of your head all the way down to the centre of your neck and split your hair in two. Then take a section from the middle of your head down to your ears. That gives you four clean sections.
5 – Proceed slowly
When you’ve got your four sections, bring them all the way around to the front. Take your scissors and point them upwards into the hair so you’re cutting almost little triangles at a slight angle – it’ll give you a more broken, natural looking edge.
If you’ve got curly or textured hair don’t comb it. Leave it as it is and pick each curl up, cutting them individually by sight.
