Default Tips for cutting one's own hair

I am thinking about cutting my own hair. The regular salons in my area do it badly, and the curl-friendly ones in my area are way out of my price range. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have included a pic to show my hair type.

A recent thread you might want to check out is here: Taking matters into my own hands!!!

I'm not sure if Feye method might be hard at your length. It might be easier if you get someone to help you move the scrunchies down. And for curly hair I can't imagine doing it anything other than soaking wet.

You can also check out the other suggestion I put in that thread. I haven't trimmed it too much using that method, but what I did do I had luck with.

Hi!

I cut my own layers. I comb it out & cut it dry. I just take about a 2 inch section & cut it vertically, all the way around my head. Checking to be sure the lengths are even. It took me a couple of times to get it just right but you can always cut more.

1- always use a special pair of scissors for cutting hair, they really are different ( didn't believe that untill i tried one either)
2- cut curly hair dry. i think lorraine decribes it in the curly girl book, and i'm sure quidad describes it in curl talk.
3- don't cut your hair shorter than chin lenght when wet.

i cut my hair all the time, i figured when a hairdresser can ruin it and i have to pay for it, i can try it myself, even if i ruin it it will save me some money (but it always looks great when i cut it myself so i'm no going back to the bad, expensive hairdresser)
