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.
