After two $65.00+tip haircuts in the last 10 months, both of which were awful experiences, I had had enough of wasting my money on something I was sure I could do better myself...it certainly couldn't have been any worse than the last two. I had heard about a self hair cutting trick and figured I had nothing (but a little hair) to lose. Since I cut Robs hair about once a month, I figured it were time he return the favour. This was how simple it was:

Step 1:  Tie your hair as far forward as possible (see video). 

Step 2:  Grab a pair of scissors (or a trimmer like we used in the video) and cut!

Step 3:  Show off your amazing hair to your friends and take the $65 you saved and spend it on some great hair products - or whatever else you want!


- this works best with medium - long hair
- If you have bangs, its best to separate them first and pin them off so you don't cut them too short
- we didn't do it in this video but if you hold a bag under your hair there is no clean-up!
<p>Just for everyone asking about the back layers, if you put a pony tail on top of your head and cut straight across you will get long and even layers throughout the hair. Just start by cutting off small amounts, a little bit goes a long way!</p>

<p>I haven't cut my hair in about 5 years, but I have seen my brothers and sister get haircuts, and the results never pleased them or my mom. So we're with you in the salon thing.</p>
<p>Interesting. Might try it, if my mom lets me ;)</p>
Hello i am really intereste in seeing a bit more of the back f head view. I am not afraid to try this. My husband will help me. The bangs you have did you seperate it?
<p>What about all of the layers in the BACK? This just trims the face frame and the back bottom length.</p>
I just see a blank space!
I don't see a video either
