A perfect one length bob is probably the hardest haircut to achieve.

You know how hairdressers insist that you should get your hair cut every 8 weeks? I cut my hair once a year, and I always get compliments for my hair. I don't really get split ends (maybe because my hair is cut in layers at the bottom, I don't know). But sometimes I get really sick of long hair

I also mostly cut my hair myself after not being able to find a hairdresser I liked. Also sometimes its just easier, I can do it whenever I like. Its taken a bit of practice to get it right, but my hairs really long so there's plenty to experiment with!!

i never knew there were so many people who share the same problem ..and that i was one of them!

i think i've never ever had a hair cut that i loved. and forget about styling.. when i leave the salon it looks so picture-perfect that i can't wait to get home and de-structure it. some years ago i started styling my own hair because its natural look it's not worth seeing, but i can count the times i've looked in the mirror and said "wow, my hair looks cool" with one hand. and not that i can do less than they do in the salon, i pretty much mastered this...
a few time ago i surrendered, i haven't had a hair cut in over two years, and i'm growing it out (bangs included) into this shapeless thing. and today i pretty much made the worst mistake but dying the bottom part into a lighter version of my natural brown.

so, will i ever be 100% happy with how my hair looks? let's hope so...

^

Softie have you tried vidal?

I cut and dye my own hair, I buy two colours plus a blue dye to mix in my own colour, and apply it as if it was a piece of ombre fabric. Tons of blue on the top and pitch black around my head. The look is perfect.

Hmm, if only I was going to nyc i could've cut your hair, if the idea of getting your hair done by a complete stranger doesn't creep you out already

^ wait this sounds too positive.

ok, so because I cut my own hair, and I use clippers and scissors at the same time, it gets kind of uncomfortable when I have to cut the back. I have two huge mirrors in my bathroom facing eachother so I can see what im doing in the back, but dont remmeber that what im seeing, its backwards, so I mess up like there's nobody's business.

The other day I cut my hair and the safety clip came off without me noticing while I was doing my sides, and I shaved a huge piece of hair from the side... which made me very upset because until today im still filling it in with black eyeshadow :rof:

but yeah, I normally dont have so many problems but I hate my hair right now cause its sooo uneven, but the custom colour makes up for it

Ale! You have Superman/Wonder Woman cartoon hair! I love that! Ever since I was a little girl that's the haircolor I wanted... being blonde I'm sure that'll never happen

I cut all mine off to a bob. It's saving me a ton of money and time now. I do miss my long hair but it's just too high maintenence However, even with the bob, I can't get it to look how I want it all the time. If I don't blow dry it, I basically end up looking like Edward Scissorhands.
