After watching several youtube videos that all told me to do the exact same thing, I decided that I'd give it a try. What could I lose? Nothing, is what I figured. I'd either: cut my own hair for free and save $15-$40 or have to go in to get it fixed. Kj was around to capture it on "film". She's practicing using her camera for her upcoming trip to see her cousin. So, here it is:
Make a ponytail at the center of your forehead. Make sure to smooth out your hair around your head. Someone with not very many waves said to straighten it, but that was a bit much for me.
Then start cutting, slowly and carefully, as straight as you can.
Check your progress from different angles and snip a little more. ;)
Take out that rubber band and do some smoothing and separating. Then taking smaller portions you do some snipping to make the edges seem less abrupt. I even used the thinning scissors as suggested by one lady. This is my kind of project...not too precise.
Ok, seriously, this computer and the formatting on here is really getting the best of me right now! But I did want to show you the final product and the final figures on amount saved that day. 5 heads home-cut = approximately $100 savings!!! Winning!!
