A new you, with one snip

So, with money tight and my hair long, I knew I needed to do something with the mass amount of hair on my head that was giving me daily headaches.  I have thick hair, so I can’t keep it too long, and I had gone past the point of no return recently. Since a hair cut was likely gonna run me 40 bucks or more, (which I didn’t have) I searched the web on how to cut my own hair. I cut my kiddos hair, why can’t I do my own?

I will admit that I was a tad intimidated by some of these videos as I knew I couldn’t section my hair off as neatly as they did. Wasn’t there an easy way to do this?

It turns out, there is. You have to have about shoulder length hair to do this, but if you do and wanna have long layers, this is the trick for you.

What a tutorial HERE

I ended up taking nine inches off my shortest layer.

Wow. That's a lot of my hair, no longer on my head.
Wow. That’s a lot of my hair, no longer on my head.

My first thought, upon seeing this, was: Oh no, what did you just do?

I rushed to my bathroom to see my handiwork. And I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised.


My hair is naturally curly, but because it’s so heavy, the curls would always turn into waves. The second the weight was lifted, the curls sprang back to life!

My head feels so much lighter and I feel so much better about the way it looks. The best part, though:  This:

Although, regretfully, it’s not long enough to use in their wigs, they CAN use shorter hair to sell, which off sets their costs, so even shorter hair is helpful. Who knew?  Check out their site HERE

So what are you waiting for? It’s almost summer. Shed those locks and send them off to do good!
