well , if you feel uncomfortable about trimming your own hair in any way , I suggest seeing a professional hair stylist that you trust .But if you really want to do it yourself , there are a couple of ways.First , you have to rake your fingers through your hair , and find the point of your hair that needs to be trimmed ( you will know what needs to be trimmed because it will dry, look unusual ,hair will snag on your fingers , or feel bad to the touch )Once you know where it needs to be trimmed , just take a pair of hair cutting shears ( NOT regular scissors ) and snip away .I personally blow dry and flat iron my hair when I want a trim because when your hair is straight it is easier to tell what needs to be trimmed .If you want to cut your hair while it is in it's curly state ,I would  recommend    going to a barber shop ( or unisex shop)and have them do it since your hair is so short and might be too hard for you to do with scissors . Cutting your hair with clippers seems to be the easiest way to trim short hair .
