Cut less- 

If you wish to cut your hair up to shoulder length, and then cut it till the middle of your back. This is because when you will first cut your hair, it will be uneven. You can always fix it along the way, and then make it short. If you mess it up initially, you won’t have any hair left to fix it.

Hair texture-

If your hair is curly or wavy always cut your hair dry. This way you can know what the natural look will turn out to be. If you have straight hair, always cut it wet, so that you don’t end up cutting less than what you intended to do. 


Since you are cutting your hair for the first time, don’t cut it while it is open and free down your back. You can tie your hair into a ponytail before cutting it. The hair will be easier to cut and gathered while it is in the ponytail. It is especially useful if you want to cut steps or layers.

Bob cut- 

This is one of the most difficult haircuts to do by yourself. You can cut your hair in parts and sections. Gradually move up to the length you want, whether its neck or shoulder. It will let you have room to make changes if you need to later.

You can cut your hair into bangs as well. You can always just trim it and maintain your classic look, but you can always experiment and try the look you always wanted. There’s no fun in trimming after all!
