There might be thousands of reasons why you would consider layer cutting your own hair. In fact, you can be out of money, scared that the hairdresser might cut too much from the length of it, or just do not feel like going out of the house. As a result, you decide to go with it, and cut those layers out. This is why, we are here today to tell you how to do it, and guide you through the easy steps of the whole thing.
Wash your hair and condition it
You need to start with a clean, tangle free hair so that you can have a hair that has even layers. Start by washing it, and add your conditioner afterwards. In fact, if you want to brush it in a more easy way, comb it while you are in the shower and the conditioner is on.
Make a ponytail at the top of your head
The best way you can do that, is by turning your head upside down and using a brush to help you gather all of it. After you are done with the gathering, secure the ponytail at the top with a firm elastic band. In fact, in order to get the best results, make sure that the ponytail is on the top of your scalp, and try to avoid pulling all of it to one side, it should be centered.
Slide the elastic down the length of your hair
After you are done with the hardest part, grab the elastic band and slide it down; if you want short layers, stop sliding the elastic several inches from the tip of your hair. However, if you want longer ones, slide it down until it’s about one inch from the end of the ponytail.
Cut off the end of your hair
Use scissors that have a good brand in order to chop off the section that’s sticking out from the ponytail. Moreover, do not cut at an angle, because the layers will look uneven. Make sure you hold the scissors horizontally and cut straight across.
