How To Cut Your Hair At Home...

Have you ever tried to cut your hair at home? I just did it yesterday and I am so happy with the results. This is the first time m cutting my hair on my own so I just cut few inches of my hair. For some people, going to the salon or barber shop is an enjoyable experience however for me I never used to like salon coz hairstylist always used to cut my hair extra inches of what I said. People pay so many thousands of dollars for a haircut and I just did it in few minutes with zero cost.

Required Tools:
  • Comb
  • Scissors
  • Spritzer bottle of water
  • 2 mirrors


  • Be careful! It is easy to snip your fingers along with your hair!
  • Cut a little at a time--especially if you are a beginner.

Quick Tips:

  • Take your time, especially the first few times that you cut your own hair. Like anything, it will get easier with practice.
  • To check the back of your hair, stand in front of a mirror and hold a hand-held mirror behind you.
  • When you do go to the salon, pay attention to how your stylist cuts your hair. It's the perfect place to pick up some helpful tips!

My hair type

  • Long straight hair


1. Wet hair is much easier to cut than dry hair. Start with hair that is freshly shampooed and free of tangles. Keep a bottle of water with a spray nozzle nearby so that you can dampen your hair if it begins to dry while you are working on it.

2. Be sure that your scissors are nice and sharp to avoid pulling your hair. If you plan to cut your hair on a regular basis, it will be worth investing in a good quality pair of scissors, shears, or clippers designed specifically for use on hair.

3. A simple, yet attractive cut is to lean over and comb your entire wet hair straight forward. Smooth sections of your hair through your fingers and cut all hair in one straight line across. Be sure to work in small sections and continue from one side to the other. Double check to see that the cut feels pretty even and then stand upright. Part your hair in the middle and comb it straight down. Run small sections of your hair between your index and middle fingers to see if there are any long pieces. If you find some, carefully snip off the excess.

  • Another method

Simple styles are best for home haircuts. The easiest cut will be one length everywhere. Decide on an overall length (it's a good idea to measure your hair when you have a cut that you find especially flattering) and then grab your ruler. Working in small sections, comb your hair straight out from your scalp and hold a section smoothly between your index and middle fingers. Measure to the desired length and carefully snip off the excess. Continue in this manner until you have cut all of your hair. This method works equally well for both men and women, with long hair or short hair. The length of the chosen cut can vary from quite short to shoulder length and beyond.

Tutorial on How i did my hair cut

Lean down and brush your hair from all the sides

Hold your hair just like m holding it and cut the ends. If you are a beginner like me cut it short 

 Take all your hair back and then do the middle partition of your hair divide your hair from both the sides as shown in image below brush it together in front and cut the ends. This is first section i did before my ear. (sections i did are according to my front layers)

Same way again take all you hair back and do the middle partition and this time divide section behind the ears, try to keep lines clean.

 Hold in front brush it again

and cut the ends

Lastly brush your hair again and cross check your hair length from opposite sides.

Taa daa and you are done...
