I Cut My Own Hair- Here’s How It Went

I wanted to start out by saying that I have been cutting my own hair for a few years now. I’m not a big fan of random people touching my hair and find getting my haircut professionally a bit annoying. If I want a particular style that I can’t cut myself I’ll go to a professional but for a while now I’ve just wanted to trim my hair which is quite easy to do.

Recently, I keep seeing everyone with curtain bangs which are like regular bangs but longer- they reach your chin- and I thought that would be fun to try on my own hair. I found a couple of tutorials on YouTube and tried it out myself.

When I first cut the bangs they looked absolutely insane since the rest of my hair was tied at that point. I was instantly like “OMG I MESSED UP HELP ME!!” I was like, I’ve learnt my lesson. Never get stoned and cut your hair. This was an awful idea. I was so scared but I managed to keep calm and cut a few layers on the rest of my hair so it blends in with the bangs.

In case you didn’t get the berries and cream joke- this is what I meant…

Next, I washed it and added the products I usually add so that I can style my hair a little better and my bangs don’t completely stand out and look insane. I blow dried my hair next and made sure to style it with a brush so that the bangs look cute and not curly and weird. My natural hair is curly (weirdly enough it used to be straight) if I don’t put any products in it and I don’t like how it looks so I try to get rid of the curls while I style my hair.

After doing all that I was pretty happy with the results. Now that the bangs were styled and I looked less like the little lad boy I was pleasantly surprised to find that the curtain bangs turned out good. Not great but good enough. They gave my hair more volume and framed my face which was awesome because I have a pretty big face.

I would definitely cut my bangs again in the future because now I know exactly what to do and what not to do. I also trimmed the rest of my hair a little so that I don’t get split ends which was quite simple.

If anyone if wondering how I did it- I have a haircutting set I bought on Romwe. You can check it out by clicking here. You can also just use regular scissors. I happened to have this so I used it. This was the tutorial I used:

I just want to say- this could go very badly so if possible get your haircut with a professional. If you do have practice cutting your own hair and feel like you can pull this off please be very careful. You are always just one chop away from looking like a meme for the next few months.

Overall, this was fun and gave me something to write about so yay! Hope you this was a fun read. And to think I almost got through the pandemic without giving myself a stupid haircut or cutting my own bangs…
