Today I gave my hair a bit of a trim at home. I've been trimming my hair every few weeks recently to keep it healthy and nice. The last time I went to the hairdresser was in August when I was getting married! This haircut gives you some nice layers which are shorter at the front and longer in the back. Here's how you can do it yourself!
Start with straight hair - either use a straightener or do this when your hair is wet. My hair was already straight enough for me.
Make sure it's tight and not bumpy.
Now tie another hair tie around your ponytail and slowly pull it down the hair, evenly. Pull it down to just above where you want to cut.
See? Like a horse's tail.
Now take the whole thing out and repeat these previous steps. You'll probably find that it's a bit uneven when you look at it again.
Then I like to use a comb to double check the evenness again. Here's where you can get a bit obsessive trying to make it completely even. My advice: know when to let go and say "it's even!"
All done! Here's what it looks like from the back. You can kind of see the layers in there. It turns into a nice U-shape.
It gives a nice shape at the front too!
All done! My hair feels nice again! Good luck if you try this method, I've been using it for a few months now and it's super easy and effective!
