Re: Today I cut my own hair

Lucky you that you can do it!   I used to cut my own hair, back when I was broke and starving and had to choose between getting a haircut or buying groceries.   These days I'm happy to go to a professional for a good haircut.   But ... do you really have to pay $100 for a haircut?  I currently pay $22.   Guess it's all where you live - eh?

Re: Today I cut my own hair

Well done, @Grouchomarx !

 

Like some of you, I am rarely thrilled with my cuts, so I, too, have been doing it myself. I wear my hair above shoulders & layered. Yes, the back is the most difficult. I wish it were as easy as Grouchomarx's! It seems it takes me several sessions to get it.

 

But I've got my eye on my DD's stylist. He always does a fab job for her.

All the salons by me charge about $80 for a shampoo, cut, blow dry. Then you have to tip the stylist and the shampoo person so it gets to be about $100.  I used to go to Supercuts but it was a really crummy experience and I ended up calling it the dog grooming parlor. It was so dank and depressing and overrun with male children so it made me feel weird.  I know they vary a lot by location, but there isn't a good one by me.  My mom's Supercuts is very nice.  But she lives an hour away.

DH cuts his hair with a Flowbee. Yes it's that gadget you hook up to your vacuum cleaner. LOL!!! He's been cutting his hair for almost 40 yrs. I also have him trim the ends of my hair which he hates doing but I'm not paying to have the ends trimmed.

Re: Today I cut my own hair

Unless you have all one length, straight hair, it takes talent to cut your own hair. Trained stylist do not always give a good haircut.

 

I know a few ladies who brag about cutting and coloring their own hair.  It looks it.

Re: Today I cut my own hair

When I was young, I would trim it. I won't do a cut though. I can't reach the back!

Re: Today I cut my own hair

DD's stylist was wonderful! Snip, snip, and he was done! It came out perfectly, exactly what I wanted!

 

I don't mind paying the big bucks when someone really understands my hair and knows what they are doing!

 

It would be different if I wore longer hair, all one length.

I’ve been cutting my own hair this year and I love it. I watched a million YouTube videos and looked online. It’s so much easier than I expected. I use professional scissors. When I started this I had hair that was longer than my waist. I changed my part too.
