Default Does any 4a's self cut?

I've trimmed my hair recently but the shape is so boxy that I'm dying for a cut. I'm pretty tired of having to pull my hair out in order to get the ride shape, I just sort of want it styled and shape already so that I can add to it. But I don't want to make any crazy mistakes. So, do any of you self cut/shape your own hair?

I did my own BC, and I also trim my own hair (it's been several months though). I have trust issues with salon people, that's why. If you want to have a certain type of shape/style, I do suggest you go to a stylist that specializes in natural hair, though, to get optimum results.

I was cutting my own hair, too...but I had a weird crazy mullet looking thing going on LOL.

I found a cutter trained in devachan (professional curly cutters) and I went to her. She did a very good cut. It's in a style, but it also afros up really well!!

I did my BC and trim my ends. I dont see any need to shape or cut at this point, thought Im not fond of the omniscent bangs I have. I seem to have natural layers so it looks fine.

I would recommend going to a professional for a shape though.

I used to do my own shaping cuts when I had a TWA but now that my hair has grown I can't really see the back well enough to cut properly.
