I do all the time, and it isn't pretty-but financially I can't afford to go get my hair cut, so it's more out of necessity.

I cut my own hair. But I always go for the "messy look," so it's pretty much fool proof.

I did it once and maybe don't trust myself to do it again

I used a razor and forgot to add the guard in a section.. so I pretty much shaved myself bald or crew cut like
I then went to a salon to get it fixed.



Sometimes after a few weeks of getting a fresh cut
the sides will look long, so I cut that because I can eye it in the mirror. Nobody can tell my hair would be uneven
but when the back is too long, I have to get someone else to do it.

Did this last night to my long layered hair.. didn't really care about anything besides getting rid of dry ends.. so now I have some sort of choppy looking uneven hair... hahaha it's funny but I hate it already and I am too lazy/cheap to go get it fixed. Oh well!

I've been cutting mine for about a year and a half...I actually prefer what I do to what my hairdresser did (it's closer to what I want than what the hairdresser thinks I want :p). But, like some other here, I like a messy cut...I wouldn't try to do it myself if I was looking for a perfect bob.

I will never cut my own hair again. I learned my lesson the first time

Whenever I need my hair done, I go to my favorite hairdresser. I pay 40 dollars for my hair. Might be expensive to others but the quality and excellent service is worth every penny. I've never had a bad hair cut from there ever.

I absolutely agree with CatlinC. I am a hairdresser, and I would never cut my own hair. I do trim my bangs if I really need to, but I wouldn't touch anything else. A good hairdresser is hard to find, and once you do, the price is not so important. A great hairstyle/color is priceless.

40 dollar expensive? I pay at least 65 euro. Maybe thats why it hurts so bad after a bad haicut, I go around thinking better ways to spend those money

I cut my hair all the time, but I never do anything dramatic, obvsly

the key is so take a strand and cut at the ends with the scissors slightly diagonal

I used to when I had long layered hair, but now its so short, I can't see the back. Too difficult. Any short haired ladies cut their own hair here?
