Cutting your own layers ~ quick tutorial

I just did this on my hair, and it turned out great.

Or put into youtube search box:

Emo or Scene Haircut - How to Cut Short Layers - TheSalonGuy

 

I didn't make mine that short, though - I held it up 4 or 5" from my head and it still worked.

That's what my hair looks like but I use a Creaclip. Good to know I don't really need one if something happens to it.

I been doing this for years but doing the pony tail on forehead  and only hutting 2-4 inches off on my long hair.  Gives me nice long layers

What interesting videos he does.  I watched a little of one showing how to cut short hair and I think I would need an extra hand to do it on myself.  I have known people who cut their own short hair and it is adorable.  I wish I could do it because every time I get a cut it looks different and I usually have to go home and do a little trimming myself.  I may watch the ones about mens hair and practice on my husband.

Fascinating video!  I'm too afraid of doing my own hair though.  I'm sure I would mess things up.

Did this in college, in the 1970s after the Farrah Fawcett long layers.

 

Glad it worked for you!

It doesn't look horrible at all. It's a trendy cut that would be very easy to grow out once you tire of it. Not everyone wants a pixie or traditional bob.
