If you are a too busy person and cannot afford to visit a hairdresser regularly, then you should go through this post. Just spend few minutes reading this and you will find a real good information on how to have a hair cutting at your home. Yes, you read it right! You can cut your hair at home in between your long postponed hair cuts at the salon, saving you money and time.
These few haircuts in between your visits to hair dresser are really helpful to get that neat look without spending money and time. You must have made paper dolls or cut patterns in paper in your childhood. If so then it is very easy to trim your hair or for that matter any other’s. A trim is simply cutting off the ends of small lengths of hair.
First of all, be sure to pick up sharp scissors. The type of scissors you use is not that important so long they are razor sharp. To test whether your scissors are sharp enough, take a thread and hold it in the air, cut it without holding at the other end; if you are able to do this easily then you have the perfect scissors in hand for your hair cut.
Secondly, prepare the hair by thoroughly combing or brushing out all the snarls and tangles. This will help you have a neat cut, all in level. Also pain is avoided through combing or brushing. Thick hair and long hair may need to be wetted first. This makes your hair cutting easier and more manageable. Make sure no hairs are hidden behind the ears or the nape.
Always wet your hair before trimming or hair cutting, if it is long and thick. Also be sure that the length you have trimmed is shorter than how much you want it to be, because the hair will shrink after trimming; this is most evident in curly hair, they shrink much.
Now that you are familiar with hair cutting techniques, you can try to experiment on the young ones initially. Don’t be afraid to bend the ears for that perfect trimming. After you are done with trimming don’t forget to shave the borders for that perfect look while cutting short hair.
So, what are you doing this weekend? Hair cutting, of course!
