Did you know that a man’s hair grows on average 1.27 centimeters per month? Men’s hair usually grows faster than a woman’s, so they have to go to the barber more often. Sometimes going to the barber is uncomfortable because he can be on vacation when you need him the most, or he doesn’t have time for you that day. If not, it may be too expensive and then you can’t afford to go every few days. That’s why I’m going to offer you different haircuts that you can do at home.
But let’s be realistic, cutting your own hair is not always that easy, it can be quite a challenge if you don’t have any idea how to do it. At first it will cost you and like everything else, it will take some time and patience until you are a professional.
All you’ll need is a pair of scissors
Before you start cutting your hair you will need to decide what look you want to wear. You can’t start cutting your hair without having an idea of what you want. So you’ll need to choose a photograph of the look you’re going to wear.
You will also need to equip yourself with all the necessary tools. A hair clipper with accessories, hair scissors, clippers, a thin and wide side cutting comb, a bottle of water, styling products, a hand mirror, a hair dryer, a neck brim template and a cape.
In addition, you will need to choose the right place, a place with natural light, with many mirrors and that allows to be picked up and cleaned easily.
And finally, to get your hair washed. It has to be in good condition to make cutting hair easy, so you should wash it with shampoo, conditioner, and dry it if necessary. If you’re going to use scissors, you don’t need to blow dry it, but if you’re going to use a razor, you’ll need to get as much moisture out of it as possible.
There are different types of cuts, straight hair, wavy hair and curly hair.
How do I cut straight hair?
Straight hair can be easy but difficult to cut because if you cut it too short at the sides and too long at the back it can look a little strange. You can use scissors or a razor to do this. Don’t forget that when you dry your hair, it will be shorter than it really is. It is preferable to start with a small section and then continue, but never cut everything at once.
How to cut wavy hair?
This haircut is similar to the straight haircut. Wavy hair is one of the most expected cuts because the texture is ideal. Remember that as with straight hair, wavy hair will also be shortened once you have dried it. Once cut, to maintain that desired texture I recommend using a medium to high hold and low shine product.
How to cut curly hair?
You should know that curly hair, once cut, looks shorter because it is curled. But this is the kind of texture that is indulgent because, even if you don’t cut it straight, you won’t see those imperfections that you would with a straight haircut. If you use a hair dryer, be careful because this type of hair tends to curl more than other types of hair. On the other hand, depending on whether your hair is wet or very long, it will have repercussions on how long your hair is when it is dry. So I recommend that you cut a small section of hair until you get the desired length and then continue with the other sections.
