DIY Hair Cut

It is so liberating to be able to cut your own hair. For the last few weeks, I felt like a grandma with my hair constantly tied up in a bun. From the moment I wake up to when I go to bed, my hair is constantly tied up and it felt like my hair was weighing me down. I needed something new and fresh.

I decided to call my hair stylist to make an appointment to cut my hair but she cancelled on me. The next available appointment is more than a month away and I am hesitant about finding someone new because you never know how much it will cost to cut your hair. They may quote you a price but ring up a different price at the till and that has happened to me before and it was unpleasant.

As I was browsing for ideas on what to do with my hair, I came across this article and that inspired me. I have always been afraid of cutting my own hair. How do you get it straight? How do you cut the back of your hair? This article made it seem doable and since it’s just hair, why not give it a go? What is the worst that can happen? I have to find a stylist to fix my hair pronto or wait for my hair to grow back.

I did the DIY haircut #3 and it turned out great. Even Husband thought that it looked great. I have to warn you though, cutting hair is not the same as cutting paper or cardboard. The scissors have to be sharp and you should probably use the scissors to cut hair only and nothing else. I used a small scissors that I typically used to trim Husband’s side burns. It was tricky trying to cut a bunch of hair straight across.  I got it as even as I could and rinsed my hair.

I wish I knew how to cut my own hair sooner. The feeling was so liberating knowing that I can probably get away from seeing a hair stylist for years in the future. Initially, I was planning to cut my hair when it was 10 inches long so I can donate it but I couldn’t hold out anymore. My hair went to the compost bin.
