Trimming my own hair
Hey guys! I have a question, I want to trim my own hair because 1) I don't have the money to find a "curly cutter" just yet and I am in MAJOR NEED for a trim. 2) I watched the Deva Curl video on how to trim hair and it seems pretty simple. Anybody have any tips on it? Thanks a lot

Something I've never had the courage to do. Many folks have done so and I hope they respond to you with good tips! Let us know how it goes!

I've done my own a few times and my sisters have always done their own. Not sure if these are good, but...

My mums method for layers works very well for my 4 sisters but I havnt tried it- get your hair into a ponytail high right ontop of your head, put it into a braid and just snip the end of the braid. My sisters get really nice layers that way.
Me, I just cut bits of my split ends whenever my hair grows- I section it all off, then I get my first section and split it up and just cut of the bits I don't want. This way isn't great for getting a hair style, I just do it to get rid of damage and split ends whenever it grows a bit. I do it during de tangling sometimes, it works fine to get rid of unwanted bits.

Just be careful! Anyway, the good thing about curls is its a lot easier to disguise any mistakes than with straight hair I think. I did one side a bit shorter once, but with my curls it was so easy to disguise it.

Thanks a lot guys! Well I watches a video by Lorraine Massey and I just snipped a few split ends. I probably didn't get them all but most anyway. I was afraid to but since I am only snipping the ends it was no biggie. Can't wait to go to a curly girl salon for a trim soon tho!
