    I'm a Wild One

    Most of the time my hair is cut it's by me.  Granted I got a good trim last night from one of my best friends.  When I do it I usually take a razor and texturize by cutting random chunks out, I love the piecey look it gives me when I do it that way.

    Why Not?

    I watched a few instructional videos on how to do a layer hair cut. I figured, what the hell... I never like the way that professional stylists cut my hair so I decided to experiment. That and the fact that it saved quite a bit of money. My hair grows fast and I like the look of...

    A Professional Hair Cut For Me Is A Waste Of $$$

    A hair cut for me is to take a set of clippers with the absolute smallest guard that I can find and just clip it all away. I actually used to pay to get it done when Fantastic Sam's, with their $7.00 hair cuts were still around. The cost plus tip was worth it to avoid the...

    Just a Trim

    I 've only been to a hairdresser once and I didn't like the way he cut my hair so I cut it myself. Most of the time I trim off the dead ends but there have been a few times when I have gone crazy, especially when I was really depressed. I would start feeling bad about myself and...

    Used To All The Time

    Back in high school, I always wore my hair really long with bangs.  Well, hair grows, and while I always appreciated the additional length in most of it, the bangs were a pain.  It seemed like every couple weeks I needed a trim, and it just wasn't practical.So I learned how to...

    Scissors, Newspaper, Stoned

    I've done it with a handheld shearing device; that wasn't too bad because I could manage to keep it a similar length, but the worst was when I went through a phase of random spikey hair.  This involved mirrors, awkward angles I couldn't work out, reflections within...

    I do not have a treat deal of hair

    but for the last 17 years I have not been near a barber. The cost of getting one's hair cut has gone up and up and I resent it. I shave round the back of my neck and use a sharp pair of scissors and cut the longer bits off by feel and then check in the mirror. No one has ever...

    Always Have, Always Will.

     I think everyone cuts their own hair - or at least everyone that I know. Personally, I don't trust anyone besides myself to touch my hair. It seemed all too often as a kid, I'd go to get my hair cut, then leave devastated wishing I...

    My Own Hair.

    My experiences with hairdressers haven't been that great. Apparently saying "just a trim" means "cut half of it off"; of this I was not aware. I regularly snip the ends off of my hair in order to keep it from splitting and falling out - it's rather long...

    I Used to

    And it was always really short, because once I started cutting I didn't stop till there were nothing left! But the feeling was divine, I am really tempted to do it again.

    I Don't Trust People With My Hair.

    At all.  People see my hair and they think, Ooh!  Play time!  Haha, I do not think so! I cut my own hair because I only cut a couple inches off each time, when other people try cutting my hair they want to take six to eight or more inches off.  No! ...

    To Be Unique

    I once cut my hair so I would look unique. It was on a whim. A socialite friend, whether ridicule or honest comment I don't know, said that it looked nice. I never did it again though when I finally saw a shot of my back and my hair that didn't look quite right. xD

    Once

    I cut my hair once, and learned why my hairstylist gets paid the big bucks to do it.  I messed up my hair so bad that she had to cut it short. Not only did I cut it though, but I had highlighted it with a golden red highlighter.  It looked horrid on blond hair. ...

    Not Any More!

    I was in my  teens, without much money. A small ad advertised a device which was very simple: a kind of comb, coupled with an old fashioned razor blade. With this, simply by setting the blade and combing your hair, you could save a fortune in bills. So I did, although it...

    I love cutting my own hair-- well,

    buzzing it off with clippers. It's a unique sensation gliding my scalp with a growling, vibrating, hair-hungry machine. It feeds and my head grows free. So do I, shedding off whatever falling hair represents in the moment. It means transition, rebirth, and growth. Change the...

    My Hair Gets Annoying..

    I don't cut my hair all at once. I kinda just snip off annoying pieces so it always stays at a good length. It isn't that i don't trust hair dressers or anything, its just the fact that i don't have enough money to go get a haircut every 3 or 4 months.
