I made this tutorial for a friend, but thought I'd share it with the public. I have been cutting my own hair this way for about four years now, and it saves me a ton of money! I am happy with the result every time, and each time I do it I get better.
For the record, if I had money to spare, I would definitely go see a stylist. I'm trying my hardest to pay down my student loans and every bit of savings helps!
IF YOU CHOOSE TO FOLLOW THIS TUTORIAL:
-Please understand that you are still taking a risk, as everyone's hair and preference is different. Always start by cutting a small amount, you can easily go even shorter later.
-Know that I am not a professional hair stylist, and have never gone to school for this. I actually have a Masters of Architecture.
-If you part your hair deeply to one side of your head, you should probably not use this method, as the cut it will produce will not look even under that circumstance.
Feel free to ask any questions below!
What you need:
Clean, wet, conditioned hair
Cutting shears of sharp scissors ($10-12 at any drugstore or here on Amazon goo.gl/Q2ORh7)
My scissors in the video were old, please have sharp scissors!
A brush (optional, many people recommend you don't brush wet hair, so you can use just a comb if you prefer.)
