It’s been a while since I had a haircut and my hair was getting really really long, along with a lot of split ends. I was waiting for my annual visit home before I could finally chop off my mane. You know how moms can get so unreasonably clingy and possessive about their daughter’s hair. Shh, don’t tell her! 😉 So here’s a post on how I cut my hair at home.
My last haircut was over a year ago, which on a rainy afternoon, I had done myself (check it out here Fashion Vashion). Thankfully, it wasn’t a disaster. This time around, I wanted to add some layers as well. My hair is naturally wavy unless I dry them in the sun (yeah I find it strange too).
This is how my hair looked BEFORE the cut.
Looking for DIY hair tricks, I opened Youtube, which in the modern world has the answer to all of life’s questions. And I found this cool hack – How to cut hair at home. Frankly, I was completely skeptical at the beginning. I mean who cuts their hair like this. But since I am known to do weird stuff, I went ahead and followed the steps in the below video tutorial.
Youtube Channel – Bebexo – Thank you so much for posting this video!!
The best thing about this cut is it DOESN’T change the length of your hair. Yeah, that’s right. That’s like magic – to have some layers without actually changing the length. How awesome is that! Those with long hair will know what I am talking about.
But I still went ahead and snipped off the ends separately as they were slightly damaged.
How I did it: After washing and conditioning, I towel dried my hair. Applied a bit of hair serum and combed them thoroughly. Be gentle while doing so as you might end up pulling out hair. My hair was still wet when I cut them, that’s to make sure they remain straight and not curl.
And this is how it looks now 😀
I love the curls and how it makes my hair look more voluminous. (I wish I had done a better job at combing my hair though🙈) In the above picture, I haven’t used any styling gel or curler. I only oil my hair with Keo Karpin whenever I feel that they have become dry. These days I am into this beachy-wavy look, so my messy hair actually works for me. My mom, of course, doesn’t agree.
