I have had many bad haircuts; traumatic even. Because of that I often cut my own hair or go about once or twice per year to tidy up my messes or refresh the layers. Curls hide a lot of sins. I have been growing my hair out for quite some time now. I go through some fierce post pregnancy shedding and am now in the awkward re-growth stage. This re-growth is highly reactive to humidity.
All that to say I got bored looking at my tired hair style, looked on you tube to figure out the proper way to cut bangs and went to work. I am sure to regret this in a couple of days as I realize the extra work it creates, but for right now, I am happy with the change.
I also started cutting Poppy and Mike's hair. He was feeling rather desperate shortly after our move and we resorted to me cutting it with some small kitchen scissors. I have also been caretaker of his beard for nearly 6 years now. His hair actually turned out quite well and I gave him another haircut last night. Turns out it wasn't just beginners luck.
It saves us a bit of money and I kind of like the challenge, but I think I will stick to the pros for my annual $15 haircut.
go gently + be wonderful
