Updated on December 28, 2011

At times when you go to a barber’s shop you need to wait for your turn or when you call them for an appointment they will give you time for next month or so on. Whichever situation you face, both are very irritating and annoying.

Sometimes you might want to go to an urgent party or occasion and you want at least a trim for your hair, but you your hairdresser couldn’t find time to deal you immediately. These are the times when you have a desire to do your hair cut by your own. But the problem is how you will manage hair cutting, especially when you do not even know how to do it.

Cutting hair is surely not everyone’s cup of tea. You need to be vigilant and take a relaxed assessment of your hair before cutting them. Before starting it, be sure that you are really interested in doing it.

Before you start, you have to wash your hair thoroughly with shampoo just as you do it while bathing. Now be in front of mirror and take a thorough look of your head and hair.

You can check the whole circular pattern of your hair and judge the natural growing pattern of them. Now, since you have got the idea of the natural pattern of your hair it will become quite easier for you to start cutting your hair.

Take a pair of sharp scissors and position them correctly towards your hair; scramble the hairs a little with the tip of the scissor to give them a little fluff, do if specially if you have long locks. Now, stretch the locks straight up, with comb and start cutting the tip of the hairs. You will face a little difficulty at first, but with a little practice, you would get used to it.

Remember always take a scissors of a good quality. Otherwise you will invite many troubles for yourself.

How To Deal With Shambling Hair

It is not easy to cut shambled hair as they are not straight. If you are having such type of hair then while cutting them you need to check the style of growth and then cut just in the direction of your hairs natural curls.

While starting to trim, pay special attention as shambled hair tend to stretch out flattest in the region of the face. Don't over do the fringes or else it will expose your temple area and thinness of your hairs on top of them.

The Outer edges should be cut fine into the temples so that you don't loose the natural look of your hairs; make sure the hair are cut in a way that they form well into the cheekbones. If you are using a conditioner or simply water spray to smooth you hair before the cut, make sure you don't over do either thing as it might not give you the natural softness you want.

Once done with the cut, it is good to use styling spray or hair gel at the roots when hair is almost dried out, just to boost its stiffness and give your hair some body.

Hair spray can be supportive for shambled hairs, but make use of it just to make slightly stronger hair. Over spraying can leave hair so rigid, it will have no movement in any way.

How To Deal With Thick Hair

Thick hair should not be be cut by means of a thinning shears; this is because they do tend to get off bulk of your hair quite easily, but the hairs then grow in a very uneven way, creating more problems for you.

Thus, it turns out to be quite unmanageable for you in the future. Almost certainly, the most excellent alternative for cutting thick hair is to use short scissors that will help you take of your hair off in different sections. Making the hair a little wet will make it very comfortable for you to precisely cut your hairs.

Therefore, it is better to cut your hair this way. If you have shorter hairs, you can use your fingers to get hold of the different section of your hairs and cut their tips in succession.

How To Deal With Curly Hair

Curly hairs are amazing and very easy to deal with. This type of hair can be a blessing; however, they really test your patience as compared to straight hairs when they start to grow, as curly hairs can be a little difficult to handle after that. If not cut properly they can give a wild and untamed look to your personality.

The first thing related to curly hair is, they should always be in layers. This way, you will get better look of your hair and style. If curls are cut in disorderly, apply hair spray on to your palms and then level your surface of hair, obviously you cannot go on to a party with such a cartoonist look.

Just make sure you are cutting in normally. If your hair is long or extremely curly then you can make straight them by using straightened rod. You can also do this with the help of a large round or paddle brush, some straightening balm and a blower.

Whether your hairs are long, short, curly or straight; cutting them is not an issue for those who really want to do it by themselves. So just give it a try at least once, hopefully by applying the above mentioned tips you will get good results. Don’t forget that practice makes a man perfect!

      You need to focus on tenses and the way you phrase things because sometimes I get a bit confused so maybe you should work on that.

      Generally hair cutting is carried out by a professional hair cutter. This hub is writing of hair cutting by own – something special which involves special technique. I appreciate the great attempt of new technique. Thanks.
