3. Assemble Your Tools
Don’t use your kitchen scissors to cut your hair. Seriously, don’t do it. If you don’t have good hair cutting scissors, run out and get a pair. Thinning shears are also handy for creating a nice blended look. Here are the items you will likely need for whatever cut you choose.
4. Cut a Little at a Time
Once you’re ready to start cutting, make some small cuts before you cut the entire length you want to get rid of. Start with a quarter-inch or so and then remove the hair ties out to confirm that you sectioned your hair off correctly and are getting the line you want. Once you are sure you have the right line, reset and proceed with cutting off longer lengths. I normally run through the process a few times to get to the length I like.
My hair shrinks A LOT once it is dry. I normally do my cuts on dry hair, so I know what the final length will be. If you are doing a wet cut, you will need to cut a little less to get the length you want. If you do a dry cut, be sure your hair is pin straight before you start to ensure a nice even cut.
