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. 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?!

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!!

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 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

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. I don't think you could make it worse anyway.

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

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!
