Long Hair Is Forgiving....

.......I hope.
I've been trying to convince my hairdresser (aka, The Hubs) to cut my hair. He colors my hair, so why not cut it, right? I'm just not cool in spending $40.00 for something I could have him do for free.

" do you want it cut?" he asked.

"Long layers.....pretty easy....." I told him.

"I guess if you find me some how-to stuff......"

So. In my browsing, I found this:
Haha.......hang upside down off the table and cut it straight. Should
I'll get back to you if it comes out okay. If not, I will not be posting pictures for about 6 months. LOL


  1. Please let us know how it goes. I'm quite curious...

  2. Good Luck! It's not as easy as you think! LOL

  3. I'm a hair dresser, and I've done it like this before. It really is easy. But you should get him to trim the ends before he cuts the layers. It's easier to do it if all the ends are the same length.

  4. Oh, you can just stand up and bend over at the waist. You don't have to lay on a table. LOL

  5. Did I tell you I just cut my almost-waist-length hair to my shoulders?

    Yeah. Still getting used to it. It's... odd. But now I'm pondering what color to make it. I figure I've just cut off all the crud, so the stuff that's left is in pretty good shape. Gotta fix that...

    I'm thinking either light blonde or, like... purple.

  6. Oh, and color me impressed at Jesse's willingness to do the hair dye. I had my ex do it once, ONCE, and it looked like I'd gotten stuck in some hippie's tie-dye fantasy. NOT GOOD.

  7. LMAO! Okay, those directions were confusing as hell!

    Can't wait to see how this turns out. :D

    Good luck!


  8. you are BRAVE. Good luck with that. If I were you I would shell out the $40 but I am not brave.

  9. It IS forgiving. I have long straight hair, and I trim it myself. It's been years since I've been in for a haircut. I comb it all to one side and trim; then comb it all to the other side and trim. Then I come it back, like a ponytail, bring it around to one side and trim, and repeat with the other side. I look at it from the back in the mirror, and see if it's too raggedy, then adjust. Works for me!

  10. It's true! I remember a fried who had the most perfect hair - if she flipped her head down to throw it back to fluff it up it was perfectly straight upside down! I can't wait to see how it comes out - maybe I'll let my hubby do mine too! MAYBE!


Talk to me, people! Otherwise, I'm just talking to myself....
