I’ve trimmed my own hair but no more than that? I’ve trimmed badly split ends, weird hairs that stick out and won’t go down, and my bangs. I can’t always get out to my hairdresser to have her do bang trims, so i’ve been known to take matters into my own hands. No horrible mishaps so far, knock wood lol

No. I have trimmed hair for my friends, but I’ve never cut my own. I’d think that would be really hard to do.

Always. Since I decided to go long and all I do is trim the split ends. I’m actually more confident than when I had to go to a stylist and risk everything with a stranger.

I trim my own hair often, when it’s long. I simply part my hair down the middle, braid each side, tie off the ends, and snip whatever is below the band. My hair is thick & wavy, so if there is a slight miscalculation, it’s not too obvious.

I’m never happy with the placement of my bangs, so I *always* end up having to adjust them. I just had them redone a couple of days ago, and one side was fuller than the other, so I had to go in and redo the line, but at least I had a guide. I also prefer fuller, blunt bangs, but I always end up with wispier ones.

I have been cutting my own hair for 3 years now. I’m not trained, I started off cutting just split ends and my bangs and then I decided just to go ahead and cut it in a bob. I just have to make sure it’s even but other than that its no problem. I’m sure if I wanted layers or something that required more precision I would get it done professionally.

I tried to trim my bang when I was around eleven, and it was a disaster. That does not make me want to renew the experience…

I did it once when I was a child. Please don’t try it out, my mum hat to cut my hair afterwards and I looked like a boy for the next few months. 😉

I have a strong dislike for letting strangers touch me on the head, so I cut my hair myself. The fact that is very long and normally worn braided or pinned up helps a lot :-).

Ohhhn no. I have very fine curly hair that tends to get layered, and there’s no way I could do anything but make a mess of it.

I always cut my hair.
I have crazy curly thick hair and because of past experience I don’t trust anyone to cut it.
Every single haircut I have ever had made me look like a poodle.
However because my hair is so curly it hides how uneven it looks tho I am too sxcared to straighten it lol.

I trim my bangs sometimes if I can’t make it to my hairdresser. I don’t get it right 100% of the time but it never looks too bad. I can always reassure myself that it will grow back so even if they look a bit wonky, they won’t look wonky for long. And thankfully my hair grows really fast. 🙂

I might have trimmed my own bangs when I was a kid (like 10 years old). It went OK in my humble opinion, but that’s just my opinion LOL
