Cutting your own hair

I'm tempted to go to a salon that features curly hairstylists but I'm afraid! I've been snipping my own hair for years. What are all you curly girls doing? Anyone cutting their own hair?
I cut my own hair. I went to a salon a couple of times recently and got an inverted bob cut in, because I wouldn't know how to do that upside down "U" thing in the back. I decided I liked my hair better in a regular bob, so I'm cutting it again. I like being able to cut my hair whenever I'd like, and I like knowing exactly what I want it to look like and cutting it that way. I was really paranoid about going to a salon and getting it cut. Luckily, the girl cut it well, but I feel more confident doing it myself.

I'd love to learn how to cut my own, but its short and layered... not as easy as just giving longer hair a trim.
