How to cut your own hair

Here in England, a haircut costs about £30 and that’s only a simple cut with shampoo and blow-dry. I shudder to think what a hot-oil treatment would cost.  Having said that, since moving to the UK, I have learned to cut my own hair, much to the annoyance of my husband who would rather that I go and have a “proper” haircut.  But I really see no point in paying that much for something that I can do on my own and ever since I became a mother, I’d rather spend my money on my daughter.  Thankfully I have long and wavy hair, when I give it a trim, it doesn’t really matter if it’s straight or not, it won’t show!

So if you’re as stingy as I am, here’s a video that will help you do it, especially if you have long hair and go for the layered-look.  It’s really easy to do.

After the new year, I got antsy again and chopped off inches of hair.  This time I did it right after a shower, you will need a small mirror just to make sure that there aren’t any long-trailing strands on your back.  You could always say of course that it’s your new hair style. Hahaha.

Do you have any tips to share too?

    It is pricey here as well. To have mine done, I am lucky if I get out of the salon paying 60 bucks only. But, I have to have mine done! Lol

    • If I were to have my hair styled – I’d gladly pay for that too. But not for a trim though. Hahaha. I’d rather do it myself than pay that much! =p
