    I'd no sooner cut my own hair than do my own pap smear. Hair like mine needs professional level skills, and even then it can be iffy in the wrong hands.

    I sometimes trim the ends and the sweepy layers around the face, and when I used to have a fringe I would cut that. I could never cut any length off it or restyle it, I leave the cut to the professionals, but I often touch it up myself and change some layering because they never seem to get it right. No matter how many times I say make it soft and sweepy, the always want to make some damn textured choppy modern shit, I'm talking like multiple hairdressers at multiple salons over many years. I don't know why they love ugly hair so much - hairdressers often seem to have the worst hair huh?

    I do mine, but like so:

    Occasionally I go short and choppy and I would never try to do that myself, but for long layers it's easy enough to do myself.

    Wow, I've never seen layers done with a razor before, I am tempted to try it. Since you have done it before, do you have any tips for a novice?

    Thanks!

    That's a great way to create split ends. In stead of cutting the hair off, you're scraping the hair shaft until there's nothing left. I wouldn't do the razoring myself, maybe by a stylist but I don't like how it looks from the video posted.

    I've never seen anyone use that type of razor on hair. Don't let a stylist use a straight razor if you have curly hair. More than one stylist has mentioned that to me. Frays the ends and creates frizz.

    I have cut my own hair. Not only have I cut my own hair, I have also shaved most of it off too. I wasn't the most sober when I did it, but it was rather fun to do.

    No way I would touch my own hair. I can't walk and chew gum at the same time so I can only imagine the horror show. My hair is extremely thick and my stylist uses a razor to thin mine out. It is a godsend.

    I only cut my bangs but my sister is super crafty with her own. And it always ends up looking professional. The straight lines are straight etc. She has a gift, she should have been a hairdresser.

    ^^ I guess razoring would work on thick and/or coarse hair. But on fine, thin hair I wouldn't recommend it.

    With the ponytail on forehead method, my layers are nice and gradual, not choppy or uneven. It creates some volume in my flat lifeless hair. I'm just too cheap to go to a stylist, plus I hate strangers touching me.

    I've done something similar to the ponytail method as well, but I find that when my hair is quite long and I just want to refresh the layers, the razor method works quite well. It's hard to screw up, at least, because you can see every small step you're taking as you take it.

    I have really short and straight hair, so I prefer it when a professional is doing it.

    I cut my own hair and have for years. It's so thick and curly, if i screw up, no one knows it. I used to color my hair at home too, because i always looked like Priscilla Presley when the salon did it. Now i am letting the color grow off, just going to embrace the gray.
