Cut hair at home and save money by learning a few simple techniques of hair cutting.

Going to the salon can be expensive and if you want to really look good, you are going to have to shell out a lot of dough. For many of us middle class folks (the real middle class, the ones without any money), the type of hair cut we can comfortably afford just doesn't look so great. Maybe, if you're lucky, you can find the right hair stylist, the one who knows what you want and how to make you look good. Then, if she is good enough, she leaves the Hair Butchery for a more expensive shop. And so you're back to square one.

Well, I'm here to tell you that you can learn to cut hair yourself, at home. The first time I tried it - on myself, I received tons of compliments.  The first time I ever got a compliment on a hair style or cut was when I did it myself.

So - here are some pictures and a simple guide to cut a chin length bob.

You'll need scissors, a fine comb, water or a spray bottle of water, and something to protect your victim's, I mean client's clothing from debris.

Dampen and comb hair.

Straight cut horizontally along the sides and back to desired length.

Pull the hair that fromes the face up above her head and snip so that it's even.

For a little fluff, you can slightly layer the hair along the sides and back. Leave the freshly cut bottom hair alone. Section and lift the back and sides up in thin, vertical sections.Snip just the edges off for a slight layer effect. Or you can snip off a bit more. Thin, straight hair will look fuller. Follow around the head, repeating for the slightly layer effect.

Cut hair around edges and back, making sure that you keep it straight

Make sure it's nice and even

Check so the side is even. We wanted this cut to angle down in front just a bit.

Raise front hair to make sure both sides are even

Pull the front up straight and trim to even out

To layer for some volume, put hair out from head in thin vertical sections

Then snip - this is the scary part, then repeat around the head

All done - doesn't she look nice!
