How to cut own hair ( how to trim your hair )

It’s pretty standard for frugal guys to buzz their own hair.  A set of hair clippers can be as cheap as just one haircut.

I’ve noticed something recently.  I’ll read an article about how to cut hair yourself and then there will be a qualification that obviously this doesn’t apply to women.

Cheap ladies listen up.  You CAN cut your own hair.  It’s stupid easy.  {Tweet This}

My hair is fine and thin and frizzy.  Usually, the stylist would try to add layers for volume and I’d end up with wispy hair at the bottom and split ends everywhere.  So, I took a gamble and just started cutting it myself.
It was easier than going to the salon, cheaper than going to the salon, and was a giddy sleepover kind of fun.  So I kept doing it.

This morning I decided to cut my own hair and to do a photo essay for you of the process.

So this is what my hair looks like when I first wake up in the morning.  I clipped it up to show how I would usually wear my hair when it decides to be curly.

I usually do wear my hair up and my hair is pretty wild, so I don’t need to worry about precision

I brushed all my hair forward.  Brushed out curls look awesome, don’t they?  I can’t believe I’m putting that photo on the internet.  Anyways, the photo is supposed to show the “shape” of this cut in the front.  It makes layers around my face starting between my nose/chin.
