The Pros & Cons of Cutting Your Own Hair
Out of necessity (a combination of being unable to find a decent stylist for my hair type and having an emaciated wallet) I have been cutting my own hair for several years.
Personally, I think everyone should try cutting their own hair at least once in their lives. I don’t mean just trimming your fringe – I’m talkin’ about a real haircut…a complete change of style (or at least an inch off all over). Of course you should have the Appropriate Tools: stylist’s scissors, rat-tailed comb, three-way mirror, a love of adventure coupled with a sense of humour.
If you are sitting on the Cut-My-Own-Hair fence and still need convincing, here are some pros and cons I’ve discovered:
|Pros of Cutting Your Own Hair||Cons of Cutting Your Own Hair|
|1. You know exactly what cut you want.||1. You don’t have the skills to cut exactly what you want.|
|2. It doesn’t cost you a cent.||2. Might cost you your pride.|
|3. No waiting weeks for an appointment.||3. Spontaneity leads to some pretty rash decisions.|
Oh…and under Optional Equipment an electric hairclipper comes in handy (in case things go terribly awry and you need to shave your head).
