Default Any "self-cutters" here?

Hello,

My hair is getting longer, but my curls are pulled down and pretty much lifeless when this happens. I recently thought about a sassy a-line bob cut, but then again I didn't want a drastic change right now. I have other things on my mind right now and I want my hair to be predictable!

Since I'm not willing to pay for a haircut because I have my past haircut experiences I decided to give myself a cut. I didn't touch the length, but I part my hair from ear-to-ear pulled it up and cut about an inch (curly). Then I took the center only of my hair in the back and cut about 1/2 an inch (again dry). Now I have multiple layers and I super happy about it. My hair is fuller again and it's not weight down. It's still long but the outer layer is curlier because it's shorter. I love it!

I purchased the creaclip. At first I didn't want to because I wasn't willing to pay 30bucks for some piece of plastic, but I got a great deal on ebay. I got a new one for only 10 bucks plus 5 for shipping. That's half!
In case you don't know what it is, check it out on youtube!


Bye

I've been cutting my own hair since I was in high school (very long time ago!) Lol. I don't see the point in paying someone to do it.


On my EVO

I'm a "Duster". I trim a centimeter or so off of my hair every other month or so. Makes a difference! But even when I relaxed, I cut my own hair. mostly because I was poor.
