I haven’t had a haircut in far too long! I struggle to find time to go alone. The last time I went I took Bow with me and it wasn’t much fun.
I now embrace my curls, rather than straightening my hair. This hides the fact that I am in desperate need of a haircut for a while. Eventually though, something needs to be done!
I was still struggling to make an appointment with a professional so I decided to take matters into my own hands! I ordered some fancy hairdressing scissors from eBay and I watch several You Tube videos about cutting your hair yourself.
I made my mind up to give it a go. It couldn’t look any worse than it already did! I hoped it would work but I researched FUE hair transplants, just in case! 🙂
I washed my hair and used lots of conditioner. I then brushed my hair well and put it in a ponytail at the very top of my head. (Please excuse my freshly washed face!)
I picked up my new scissors and took a deep breath.
I asked Michael to take a photo as I was cutting and his intakes of breath and comments of, ‘Are you sure you know what you’re doing?’ were very helpful!
I decided it was now or never and started to cut.
I was worried I was cutting too much off but I was desperate to get rid of my dead ends. I cut straight across and hoped for the best.
I took out the bobble, brushed my hair and waited for it to dry. The hair around my face was shorter than it had been for a while and I started to worry.
When my hair was dry I was pleasantly surprised with the result. It is more layered than I would normally have it but it looks better than it did.
This is a surprisingly easy d.i.y. haircut and I think I will be doing my own hair for many years. At least until Bow starts school.
