I Cut My Hair! And My Advice For Cutting Your Own Hair :>

Never say never...

At one point, I thought I'd never go short again but have recently been watching a particular vlogging family and loved the mom's hair length (she's since cut her hair even shorter). I was originally intending to leave it a little longer than it currently is but, midway cutting it, I decided to go a little shorter. I think my hair grows pretty quick and figured I might as well cut a little more so, in no time, it'll be the length I originally wanted. Turns out, I actually like the short length I ended up with.

It was a lot of hair. Only after holding it in the garbage did I realize how much I actually cut off— probably half my hair! I accomplished a lot on Memorial Day— vacuumed, went for an exploratory walk through an unfamiliar town, went for a swim, and chopped my hair. The latter took about an hour— not bad considering how much I cut. I figured I wouldn't have enough to ombre it but will likely (hopefully) do that soon.

The key to cutting your own hair is pulling small bits in the opposite direction it normally falls and cutting 'into' or parallel to your strands, towards your scalp, to achieve a choppy/layered look. Wasn't going for blunt but if that's your thing, by all means cut perpendicular/horizontally straight across.

I filmed myself cutting my hair and am importing the footage now. If it's decent, I'll edit and publish to youtube. Cross your fingers (and be on the lookout) for that! :>

What's something you said you'd never do but did later on? Share in the Comments below, we'd love to hear! :> xoxo

So, what do you think?? Yay or nay? :>
