It seems like everyone has been posting videos of them cutting their own hair. They would snip their hair a few times and end up with perfect layers. Now, some of you are probably tempted to grab your kitchen scissors and trim your hair. Please resist the urge to do so. This can end badly.
Here are 4 reasons why you shouldn’t cut your own hair.
You don’t have the right tools
The goal of getting regular trims is to get rid and prevent split ends. In the hopes of saving money, some people would just cut their own hair.
A pair of scissors, a fine-toothed comb, and a mirror is all you need to cut your hair. However, you can’t just use any type of scissors. Notice that professional hairstylists use hair cutting shears on their clients? This is because these tools are especially designed for cutting hair. Most people who attempt to cut their hair would reach for a regular pair of scissors or kitchen scissors. These tools have dull blades. When used for cutting hair, you may end up getting split ends.
You won’t get the haircut you want
Most people would walk into a salon with a good idea about the type of hairstyle they want to achieve. Considering that you have the same hair texture, you are likely to achieve the results you want. Plus, you’ll walk away feeling more beautiful and confident.
Cutting hair isn’t an easy task. It requires skills and experience. If you haven’t done this before, don’t expect that you’ll get an amazing result. Worse, you may end up hating your hair.
It can lead to a hair disaster
Unless you have the natural knack for it, you are likely to cut way too much off or cut too much off one side than the other. Chances are good that you’ll end up with a horrible hairstyle. You have no choice but to drop by the salon and ask your stylist to fix your hair.
With a horrendous looking hairstyle, your stylist may have to chop off your hair a little more to ensure that both sides are of the same length. Not only will you have to pay the stylist, you may also walk out of the salon with a pixie cut. Well, hopefully not.
