Cutting your hair at home might seem both thrilling and complicated. In fact, this is becoming more trendy as hairdressers become online consultants to guide clients through this adventure. Although we might not be as skilled as a professional, maybe there are little improvements or changes we could make at home in case we’re feeling adventurous.
So today, at FlagViral, we looked into a few tips to make the best of our homemade haircuts. At the end of the article, we thought it’d be nice to look into how to cut bangs, as it’s a bit trickier than we expected!
1. Gather your supplies
Don’t skip the basics. This may seem like an obvious piece of advice, but just as an example, remember that even something as simple as dull scissors could damage your hair, so it’s better to have sharp ones no matter what type of hair you have. You might even want to consider buying professional scissors.
Depending on your hair type, the instrument needed may also vary. For example, a wide-tooth comb works best on curly hair and a fine-tooth one works on straight hair and requires more precision. Same goes for scrunchies or clips that you can use to section hair easily. Clips can help you gain precision when cutting straight hair with less volume.
Here’s a list of items you might need:
- Sharp scissors
- Scrunchies and/or clips
- Spray bottle
Remember: If you have hair with a lot of texture, it’s easier to cut it dry to make sure you don’t cut too much since curly hair is longer and less fluffy when it’s wet. You can also try spraying it with water.
