    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 Decided To Give It A Try

    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...

    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.

    I am growing my hair and therefore don't need some hairdresser charging me £45 to chop off five inches when I asked for two. Nor do I need someone to unnecessarily wash and blowdry my hair then rake a fine toothed comb through it while I listen to the snap crackle and pop...

    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! ...

    but the last one i gave myself was a complete disaster. basically what happened was this: i was totally pissed off at life, i was home alone, and i had nothing on which to take out my anger. so i took a pair of scissors and started hacking away, empire records-style, until my...

    Bad Idea If In the Wrong Mood

    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

    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 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...

    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...

    Less than a month ago,

    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. ...

    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.

    Because paying to shave my head three

    or four times a week just sounds like I need to talk to a barber or a therapist with an audience. I think I do a pretty good job of cutting my hair and talking to myself, why would I pay for that?

    Picture Day

     I cut it and it was awful. I was in 1st grade at the time. I thought it would be a great idea to cut off my lovely locks. I had to go in for an emergency hair appointment. The guy that cut it did a worse job then me :P

    I hate spending 15 bucks on something i can do

    myself. I know how i want my hair done so its a lot easier to make a haircut that i am satisfied with. Its really not that hard either. Just as long as you are careful and think before you cut, it will come out how you want. The back if my hair tends to grow faster than the rest...

    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...
