Cutting your own hair

Cutting your own hair can save you money, but it takes practice to get it right. If you have layers in your hair, you’ll need to take them into account when cutting. Here are some tips on how to cut layers in your hair:

-Start by wetting your hair or spraying it with water. This will help you see the layers better and prevent your hair from frizzing.

-Start with small cuts. It’s better to start too short than too long, as you can always cut more off but you can’t put it back on!

-Pay attention to the direction of your hair. When cutting layers, you’ll want to make sure that the shortest layer is pointing downwards so that it blends in with the next longest layer.

-Be careful not to cut too much off. It’s easy to get carried away when cutting your own hair, so take your time and go slowly.

What you will need

-A comb
-Clips (optional)
Start with clean, dry, and styled hair. If your hair is clean, you will be able to see the natural fall of your hair better and make it easier to cut. If you are unsure of how to style your hair before you cut it, consult a professional stylist.
When cutting layers into your hair, it is important to keep in mind the overall shape that you want to achieve with your haircut. Consider the following elements:
-Your face shape
-The length of your hair
-The amount of layering you want
Once you have considered these factors, you are ready to begin cutting layers into your hair.

Cutting the layers

Start with dry, clean hair that’s been styled the way you usually wear it. If you have curly hair, it’s best to work with it straightened. If you have very thick hair, you may want to consider thinning it out before cutting layers. This will help prevent your layers from looking too heavy.

Start by dividing your hair into sections. You can use clips to keep the sections separate or just let them fall naturally. For most people, four sections are enough: two in the front and two in the back. But if your hair is very long or very thick, you may want to divide it into more sections.

Next, take a small section of hair from the front of your head and hold it between your thumb and index finger. Point your scissors down towards the ends of the hair and snip off a small loop. Repeat this step, taking small sections of hair and snipping off tiny loops, until you’ve cut layer into the entire front section of hair.

Now do the same thing in the back section of your head. Again, take small sections of hair and snip off tiny loops until you’ve added layers throughout the back section as well.

Once you’ve cut layers into all sections of your hair, let down another layer of hair and repeat the process until all of your hair has been layered.

Styling the layers

Once you have the basic cut, you can style your layers in a variety of ways. The simplest way to style layers is to let them air dry. If you have time, let your hair air dry naturally. If you’re in a hurry, blow dry your hair with a diffuser attached to your blow dryer. When using a diffuser, point the blow dryer down at your roots and scrunch your hair as you dry it.
