Should I pay that much for a trim?

30 Sep

Does it bother you to pay for a regular hair cut, when all you want is those nasty dead ends cut off? Well know that you are not alone. Obviously it is not a good idea to just start chopping away at your hair, but little trims can be done. I find that after getting my hair cut to the style I want it is really easy to trim off the dead ends on my own. Always remember, though, to have a GOOD pare of hair cutting scissors before cutting!

Usually when doing my own trim I leave my hair dry. This way I know what the dead ends look like after styling my hair. I only do this, though because I have straight hair. I would recommend, with curly hair, leaving it wet, so that it is easier to see the actual length of what you are cutting. It is much easier to trim your own hair, obviously, if it is longer and does not have many layers. I have found though, that is is possible to trim hair with layers, and still keep the style I have. In doing this it looks like I have not actually gotten my hair cut, but simply that my dead ends are gone.
I found it is good to do top layers, if they are short, by pulling some hair from the top layers up and finding pieces that are all the same length and cutting off a little there. I do this until I feel that I have gotten all the major dead ends off. After that I go to the sides. In every layer though, you need to make sure you are cutting pieces, together, that are ALL READY the same length. You don’t want to start making your own style up. It is also good to make sure you can see the hair you are cutting. If your hair is so short in the back, that you cannot pull it around to see it in a mirror, than I would suggest getting help trimming your hair.

So after getting the style of hair cut I want, I have found I can trim my own hair. If while you try this, you do not fell confident enough to get it right, or that your hands are shaky, you may want to stick with letting others cut your hair. The worst thing you could do is mess it up and then have to pay to get it fixed. After looking around, I found a website that teaches you how to cut hair. If you are interested in having more knowledge before cutting your own hair, or somone else’s, I would suggest checking out this website, How to cut hair for begginers. There is a book on there, that you can buy, to teach you the tricks on how to cut hair.
