How to Style Your Hair

Stylists will tell you not to be too aggressive with your scissors, but there are instances when you have no choice but to take matters into your own hands. Hair cutting is more complicated than it appears, and this approach is not one-size-fits-all, but it should help you find where to begin.

Several things may go wrong if you go crazy with a pair of scissors at home, but if you can’t get to the salon and are eager for a trim, it’s OK to give yourself a temporary fix at home. Place the kitchen scissors down! The poor edges may result in even more split ends and cross-contamination. Instead, buy a pair of razor-sharp styling shears made exclusively for the job. It can be difficult to cut your hair in the mirror. If possible, have someone assist you in trimming evenly. If you must tackle it alone, use various mirrors and take breaks to check on your appearance.

Please keep it simple. Concentrate on cutting your hair rather than attempting to restyle it entirely. You can always cut more hair, but you can’t undo what you’ve already done! If you cut your hair while it’s wet, remember that it will look much shorter after it dries. Divide and clip your hair into portions if you have long hair. Bring one portion forward at a time and decide how much to remove; we recommend a quarter-inch to a half-inch.

Short hair can benefit from wet locks in this situation. We recommend that you delegate the task to someone else. Less really is more. If you’re using shears, instruct your help to begin at the sides and work their way around your head. A comb can guide the shears and determine where to cut. When clipping around the ears, use additional caution. A haircut isn’t too difficult for children if you can get them to sit still. When uncertain, a headband will suffice. Don’t even do that when they’re older. A bowl cut will not improve their social position by high school. The 1990s are back in vogue, but not to that degree.
