    Yes, lol I was so sick of my split ends that I took scissors to them. I made the mistake of cutting the hair in a ponytail, I was just so annoyd with them I didn't even think about how it would turn out! My hair looks even in the ponytail, but I can't ever wear it down! It's pretty bad! lol

    When I was younger, I used to cut my hair when I got upset about anything. Luckily for me, my sister was a hairdresser and always fixed it right for me.  The worst time was when I cut my hair so short that when she fixed it, it was maybe an inch from my scalp.  I looked like a boy.

    Yes.  In fact, I used to cut my own hair for years when I wore it short at one time.  Don't worry, you'll get better at it. smile

    I think almost everyone tries this when they are a kid. I did this with my bangs and had to walk around for about two weeks with very angled front hairline. My mom thought that was punishment enough for the daring cut!

    I wonder what impulses everyone to do it at least once. I can say in the last year I have tried "trimming" my long hair twice...and I ended up bald each time.

    Yes I do it every time, though I must confess that my partner does the back for me - otherwise it would end up a mess, as it's short and needs to be styled carefully.  It takes a little practice but works well and saves a fortune!

    Hi smile

    Yes, I do so quite often.

    My Mum always cuts her own hair, too.

    And she used to cut mine.

    I used to cut my kids' hair.

    I cut my own bangs once when I was about five. I asked my mother to do it and she told me to wait one minute. I waited about one minute and then became impatient and decided it couldn't be that hard. Well, I ended up having to get them completely cut off since I cut them at a 45 degree angle.

    I once decided to have my friend cut my hair to save money since I was donating ten inches to Locks of Love. They totally butchered my hair and I had to pay to get it cut anyways to straighten up the mess.

    You didn't do too bad of a job yourself, though!
