Here are some tips from hairstylists on how to cut your hair at home without ruining it:

  1. To start with, if it’s not necessary, don’t cut your hair at home, for example, if you are looking to get a trim. You can instead opt for at-home repair treatment like hair masks and serums that make your time between cuts go longer.
  2. If you are trimming, don’t start big. Start with small and precise cuts, and work your way up.
  3. Have the right hair cutting shears and don’t use kitchen scissors.
  4. If you have straight hair, cut it while wet, and opposite if you have curly hair.
  5. Section your hair and follow the layering previously cut by your stylist for a clean cut.
  6. If you have short hair, use clippers not scissors.
