Anyways, I was up for the challenge and I watched a TON of youtube tutorials and decided that this one from Rosebud143 was the best one at explaining how to do it
In less than 6 minutes, she explained it perfectly! So I ran out and got some supplies from Sally's Beauty Supplies.
- A thinning razor comb
- Hair cutting scissors
- Rat tail comb
I told my sister to wash her hair and to come into my room when she was ready. I was sooooooooooooooooooooo SUPER NERVOUS to make the first cut. I think I combed her hair for like 10 min till my sister finally said "JUST DO IT ALREADY!" lol..so I did! Once the first cut once made, I was on a roll. My sister has a lot of hair, so the cut took me about an hour.
I basically cut the hair in sections, clipping up the pieces to separate them from the hair I was cutting and the hair I was about to cut and I tied back the pieces I already cut in the elastics.
I also cut the hair on an angle like the youtube video instructed. She already had layers, so it was easy to follow her hair. I cut about a half an inch off or so of her hair.
Check out all the hair afterwards...
On the floor
On her pants
In the chair
And the final results
and the sides
NOT BAD! and she liked it too!! She said the only way she would allow me to post this on my blog is if I did a good job and if I didn't show her face. At the end of the cut, she gave me permission to post it on my blog. I told her I will do it again next time she wants her hair trimmed.
Her tip to me was: "Don't trust any anyone and never accept wooden nickels" LMFAO..thanks
What do you think of my first hair cut? Would you ever cut your own hair or someone else's even if you never did it before?
