My DIY Bob - with pics!!!
I cut my hair myself and I LOVE IT!!!!! Here are the results:

I should add that my hair looks *particularly* tousled due to my sitting on the floor with one year olds all day, and my hair is grabbed, chewed on , and played with. :P

Wow, it looks great! That's an amazing DIY cut! I never have the guts to give myself a haircut. :p I'm getting close, though -- those long straightish pieces that stick out under my curls are really getting on my nerves! Anyway, I LOVE it! You did such a great job! Can you cut MY hair?! :D

Wow!!!!!!! That is an awesome and adorable cut! That is so cool that you were able to do that yourself. Now you just saved a ton of money that would have been spent at the salon!

Holy moly!! Such a flattering and awesome cut! And I think it's funny that you explained why your hair look tousled; I think you should have 1 year old play with your hair everyday, your curls look amazing! I'd give anything for them. Great job!!:blob2:

Great job! :thumbright: It looks fantastic! Do you have before pics to compare?

Also, I great signigture!! I love a curly like me who uses all ground-found, affordable products :)

Your hair is SO cute! I was going to trim my bangs a little this morning and totally chickened out! It is AWESOME that you were able to give yourself a complete haircut!!

This is over the weekend before I cut my hair. The cut was easy-peasy to do!!! I am sooo glad I decided to whack my hair off myself LOL :geek: hubby is glad I won't be spending more money at the salon! I have wanted a cut like this one for years, and it's ironic that I got it when I cut my own hair! Thanks for all the curly love ladies :)

holy guacamole! that is such a huge difference and it looks so good! how were you able to make it so even, especially in the back?

pedaheh 05-04-2011 11:08 PM

Being a self cutter myself, I'm especially impressed with the great job you did in the back. Fabulous job.

WnW- You can do eeet!! Cutting the straight ends sticking out the bottom isn't that hard and you'll like it better. :love8: I don't think you could make it worse anyway. :tongue:

Wow, that was a lot of cutting to do! So brave! I like your hair longer too, but the new bob really suits you. :)

isabella18 05-05-2011 12:25 AM

It suits you well! That's very brave of you to cut your hair on your own. However it still looks good. Great job!

I pulled my hair into a ponytail at the nape of my neck and cut across, then pulled my hair into a ponytail at the top of my head and cut across. Results: bob with layers! It's so easy!

I should add that I cut only about 1/2 inch off from the pony on top of my head. It was enough to create layers.

Sounds a lot like this method that I've been thinking of using (read: trying to get up the nerve to do) myself... Easy Way to Cut Your Own Hair in a Curly Bob

Looks great on you! :toothy8:

Impressive that you were able to cut it yourself and it looks good!
