DIY Hairstyling Guide:
It is easier to cut wet hair than dry hair. Before you start shampoo your hair properly and thoroughly to make sure your hair is free of tangles. It will be better to keep a bottle of water with a spray nozzle handy to dampen your hair every time it tends to dry while you are working on it. A good haircut requires nice and sharp scissors to prevent your hair from getting pulled during hairstyling. For all those who intend to cut their hair on a regular basis, better invest in a good quality pair of scissors, shears, or clippers specially designed for haircutting or hairstyling.
For the beginners, no matter what hairstyle you choose, cut a little at a time. For home hair cuts, simple hairstyles are best. The easiest cut will be one length everywhere. Measure an overall length of your hair with a ruler.
Comb your hair straight out from your scalp, work on small sections by holding a section smoothly between your index and middle fingers. Measure you hair to the length of your choice and carefully snip off the excess. Carry on cutting your hair in this manner until you have cut all of your hair. This haircutting method works equally well for both men and women, with long hair or short hair. The length of the desired cut can vary from very short to shoulder length and beyond.
There is another very useful tip where you can get yourself a haircut from a professional hairstylist and then continue just trimming about the same amount of hair from all areas of your head every month or two to maintain the same hairstyle. Do remember that on most people, the hair on one side of their head grows quicker than on the other, so if you opt for this method, you will need to go to your hairstylist every now and then as the cut begins to get uneven.
Get yourself an attractive haircut at home by just leaning over and combing your entire wet hair straight forward. Use fingers to smooth sections of your hair and cut all hair in one straight line across. The haircut tip here would be to work in small sections and continue from one side to the other. Make sure that you double check to see that the cut feels pretty even, once satisfied with your work you can stand upright. Part your hair in the middle and comb it straight down. Run small sections of your hair between your index and middle fingers to check if there are any uneven or long pieces left. In case if you detect any, snip it off.
For people with curly hair, be sure to cut your hair a little longer than the desired finished length as the curls tend to shrink up quite a bit as they dry out.
For people who have very thick or coarse hair, hold considerably small sections of hair for trimming. If you will cut too much hair at once then the hair can bend between the blades of the scissors, and you will not be able to cut your hair evenly.
For all hairstyles, after you think you have finished, check that the haircut is even from everywhere. All you need to do is just take sections of hair from opposite sides of your head and gently bring them toward your eyes, nose, chin and jaw line to check that the sides are evenly matched. Carefully trim the excess pieces.
Bangs or fringes haircut ideas:
Start with your hair parted in the center. Using your comb, hold an equal amount of hair from each side of the part line between your index and middle finger and comb it forward. Smooth the hair between your fingers and snip off across, make sure to maintain a straight and even line.
