How To Do An At-Home Haircut That Actually Looks Good

I’m currently on week six of working from home and self-isolation, which I’m sure is the same for most of us. During this time, I’ve learned that there are many things I can do without. Some of these include getting manicures, buying takeout coffee on my way to work almost every day, and wearing a full face of makeup. However, there is one thing (or person, rather) that I’m really starting to miss. And that’s my hairstylist.

Not only does my hairstylist make my hair look good, but she also makes sure it stays healthy. My ends are starting to look pretty dry and scraggly, and I could seriously use a trim. I’ve always been terrified at the thought of letting myself take a pair of scissors to my hair because let’s face it – I’m no professional. Thankfully, I came across a tutorial that seems like it can help.

As a disclaimer, this tutorial is geared towards people with medium to long hair that’s an even length. If you have short hair or layers, step away from the scissors and wait patiently until your hair salon is back open. All you need for this tutorial is a couple of small hair elastics, a spray bottle, and some scissors. Spritzing water on your hair before cutting it helps to maintain a little more control over the hair as you work with it.

Again, these are great and effective tips for people with even hair who are looking for a quick trim. If you have a more complicated hairstyle, don’t enrage your hairstylist by trying to imitate their professional techniques at home. However, if you’re like me and just want to get rid of your dead, split ends, this tutorial is the way to go!
