How do you cut your own hair?


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. 

Every hair salon in vicinity is closed so I have no options then cut a hair by myself. I've seen various clips on youtube already. But I also decided to ask here if anyone know how to do that at home. I also heard that you need best barber clippers you can find for that. Any thoughts or ideas?

Clippers? What are you trying to do? If you’re doing an all over clipper cut or tidying up an existing undercut go for it. My hubby has wahl clippers that I bought from Shaver Shop. He shaves his own head and has for years. He did our 2 year old boys undercut as it was existing and had just grown out a bit. Apart from those cuts I would honestly leave it the hell alone and this is coming from someone who loves changing up their look and when I want something I want it now. I tried to put a turquoise colour through my bleached ends as I often do toner or fashion colours myself. Yeah it went emerald green and faded to a lovely shade of dishwater green. Luckily some salons near me are still open and I was able to have it fixed. Colour is easier to fix than a bad cut. Sorry if not what you wanted to hear.

I am glad i am not the only one resorting to cutting our kids hair. I found this tutorial quite helpful
