Want to BC Couple of questions.
 
I'm wondering if i'm able to achieve this hair cut and style at home?

I'm not wanting to spend a fortune on getting it cut by a pro i've cut my hair before. But if I have to go pro I will.

I've been eying this for months and i'm finally going to do it.

You mean cut it yourself? Or just have it cut like that? It looks easy to maintain....if you are bold, and have a pretty face...I say go for it!

I think you could achieve that yourself using clippers, start with the longest attachment and work down though.

Yeah I want to cut it myself. I think I can pull this off.

I'm not to talented with clippers but if clippers are needed I'll go to a professional.

Slippers are pretty fool proof to be honest, you really can't f up using them, they simply cut the hair to a single uniform length. The shortest attachment generally takes hair to 1" in length, then you can work down, but if you are struggling you still have a chance to go to a pro. This length will also show growth quickly (even with really tight curls) so how often you will have to go back for maintenance is something else you might want to consider

I know my stepdad has a clipper set around the house. Would I need the clippers to get the part? I can probably get that short length with scissors.

You are more likely to make a mistake with scissors, clippers with a guard cannot go in too close. Clippers are also far easier to use on the back of your own head.

Just part your hair. Don't cut the part in.

I've tried just parting my hair before and it didnt look so good. I want to cut it in. And if I like it I'll maintain it for awhile.

But the clippers im skeptical in doing myself. Never used them before and I don't want to fudge my hair up.

I have these 3 attachments for it. Trying to figure out which size to use is tge hardest.

The green says 1/16, 1.5mm
The blk one says 1, 1/8, 3mm
The last black one says 1/8, 3mm

So those measurements refer to the length they will cut your hair to, the first is 1/16th of an inch, the second two are longer, 1/8th of an inch.

I would say both are probably too short to start with. I would always recommend you use a 1" attachment to start so you can get used to using them before you get down to your required length (also you need to take into account the curl)

Maybe, seeing as you are weary of the clippers to begin with, you could go to a salon, and ask them to do this for you, but explain that you want to maintain it yourself and ask them to do it with clippers so you can see what they do. You may need to buy your own to get all of the attachments (they usually come with a lot so some may have gotten lost from the set you have) but the $50 for a decent Ary will be worth it if you're sure you like the style, want to keep it and can do it at home.

Yes I realized those lengths were way to short. I went to sallys and bought an attachment kit. I'm thinking the No.3, 3/8, 10mm would be best for an end result.

I also asked the lady which she thought and showed her the pic she also said the 3 would be best.

Trying to figure out what length her hair cut is in. Well a general assumption if the length. To be sure in if im using a No.3 at 3/8 or a No.2 at 1/4.

Use the 3, you can always go over it with a 2 to get it shorter

Thank you everyone for your help :)

I'll post pics when it's finally done. The biggest part is deciding when to do it.

Psycho_Vixen 05-09-2013 03:21 PM

Well I did the cut. Wasn't to bad and it looks great :). I posted a before which was a rod set and a after.

I felt like I needed a new start and to learn to not dye my hair so much. Maybe once or twice but thats all for me. I had alot of straight ear length hair and without a rod set(twist outs looked horrible) they were always visible and made me feel bad sometimes. A fresh new cut will do the trick :)
