From learning how to contour their makeup to styling their own hair, people from all over the world have embraced the DIY beauty trend. However, cutting your own hair should never be on your list of things to learn online. While there are many videos out there that make it look easy, there are plenty of clips of women learning the hard way when it comes to paying for a professional trim.
At unDONE Salon, we’ve seen it all. From DIY haircolor disasters to DIY trims, we’ve helped clients of all ages fix their botched hair. That’s why we want to provide you with a list of reasons you should never attempt to cut your own hair.
You WON’T Get The Results You Want
Even people who feel confident with what they are doing end up with disastrous “do’s” when they attempt to cut their own hair. This is because it’s impossible to see your hair from all angles. Just like the mom haircuts you were forced to endure as a child, you’re more likely to end up with short, horribly uneven hair.
Here’s the thing: It takes a lot of time and training to become a Boise hair salon stylist. Not only that but a stylist must have a trained, creative eye along with professional tools and experience. Even if you get the best scissors on the market, you won’t have the necessary skills to adequately cut your own hair.
You’ll End Up Paying More To Get It Fixed
If you think you’ll save money by cutting your own hair, think again. The end result of a DIY haircut usually ALWAYS need fixing. That means you’ll probably end up paying double to make it look decent. Even worse, you’ll end up with shorter hair than you originally wanted. When it comes to getting a trim or a full blow cut, seek the help of a trusted, trained professional. Why? Not only are they professionally trained in the latest shaping, and styling techniques, you’ll end up spending double the amount to fix the cut you tried to achieve on your own.
Cutting Hair Requires Professional Tools
Unless you’re a professional stylist, you probably don’t have the right tools to cut your hair at home. Instead, people who attempt to cut their own hair often use normal scissors with dull blades. This can result in choppy hair and split ends. Blunt scissors are not intended to cut hair. So avoid crying tears of embarrassment, and visit your Boise hair salon stylist who uses professional grade tools to cut and style hair.
Visit Undone Salon
In the era of unrealistic expectations, it’s important to understand that visiting your Boise hair salon stylist is a necessary part of life if you want a perfect cut. While YouTube and Facebook videos can make a DIY haircut look easy, professional cuts are taught in cosmetology school and in advanced cutting classes.
However, if a DIY hair disaster does occur, it’s important to remain calm. The worst thing you can do is to overreact and take immediate action. Instead, take a deep breath and access the situation. Once you’ve calmed down, call unDONE Salon at (208) 287-2010 to schedule an appointment to fix the problem.
