When You Chop Off Your Own Hair

From my Snapchat. Follow me: @stylaphile

Aside from the occasional bangs trim, I have never in my life cut my own hair.

I’m not quite sure what came over me last week, but I found myself wanting much shorter hair. And instant gratification. Normally, I would call my hairstylist and book an appointment. But this time, I just grabbed a pair of scissors and did it myself.

I started at the front, since I kinda knew the desired length I was going for – above the chin and below the ears. I gave myself a little wiggle room to make any minor corrections, and then I went for it. I ended up cutting off about 2 inches.

I cannot tell you how liberated I felt. I did it! And it actually turned out pretty nice. Now, I have to admit, I did have the manfriend even up the back for me when he got home. But I have to say, I was pretty proud of myself. Not bad for a DIY Haircut Virgin.

Do you or have you ever cut your own hair? What were the results?
