DIY Haircut

Today has mostly been about deadlines and housework. Double yawn.

I did tackle one creative project though: giving myself a new haircut :)


My hair has been long for ages - I was getting bored with it, so it was time for a change. I'm a great believer in DIY haircuts, despite many self-inflicted disasters in the past, but I think this one turned out okay (it does need a bit of levelling out at the back though!)

your hair looks lovely. I manage to trim by fringe & front layers but have never dared to take anything off the length, for fear! x

Wow that is fab - I wish I could do a DIY haircut like that :-)

So cute; I can't believe you did that yourself, you brave girl!

Little Green Doll said...

Have you done it yourself!! It's very well done!! it really suits you!!

Melissa Crowe said...

I think you look gorgeous with shorter hair! Well done!

Rhonda said...

Great job! You should have done a tutorial. I've been thinking about cutting my hair for about a week now. I have been giving myself bangs and face-framing layers for years now, but am terrified of cutting the back!

It looks lovely!

I'm glad to read that I'm not the only one crazy enough to cut my own hair :)

Hi,
I found your lovely blog looking for ideas for a gift wrapping.
I wanted to ask you: how would you wrap up a banjo? Yes, I bought a banjo for my boyfriend but really I'm lacking of ideas!

Please help me : )

Thanks for the sweet comments everyone! :)

Paola, perhaps brown parcel paper and string, with a bow or gift tag made from old sheet music?

looks nice.
i've contemplated a diy haircut myself, but my hair is very long, so i think even minor mistakes would prove to be extremely noticable.

we could go anywhere..

Tumus said...

oh wow!! Very nice ^_^ Sometimes we all need a change and a lift. My secret weapon is actually having my hubby help me with the back.

Lilli said...

Doesn't look DIY at all... or maybe it does, and that's why it looks so great! :) I always seem to do it myself, can't trust the hairdressers :)

Don't know how I missed this but I cut my own hair all the time. Years ago I used to cut my kids as well and a freind who was a hairdresser told me that if you have long hair put it in a pony tail at the base of your neck then chop off the ponytail(or get a freind to) and your hair will magically have been cut in a layered bob, short at the back and long at the front. Alternately brush your hair forward and make the ponytail on your forhead/nose and you end up with short at the front and longer at back!! Saved me a fortune over the years..

Yes, the ponytail thing is a great way to get an easy haircut! I often do that and just trim it with nail scissors afterwards :)
