i suffer from stylist-phobia.. i do everything at home, including layering my own hair.

i have an oval face and want to change how my "bangs" look (they're more like short layers of my hair now).. what would u suggest, and how would i achieve the suggested look at home?

thanks in advance

I have always cut my own hair.  It depends what exactly you are going for, how do you want them to look?

i'm not sure, whatever matches an oval face... something sophisticated and sexy, the cute teenage look isn't really my style.. any suggestions?

Oval can do anything according to the beauty industry, so anything you'd like.  The big style for bangs now is grown long to eye length and sideswept (but oooh those can get annoying if you don't like playing with hairspray in the mornings!).  If you don't want them cutesy, just don't cut them too short, leave them around eyebrow length to hang straight, or longer to sidesweep.

Well, since you cut your own hair already, you know that number one is take your time and take off only a little at a time to avoid going too short and to have room to correct any mistakes.  When I decide to cut bangs, I just separate out the parts of hair that I want to be bangs, deciding how far back on your head you want them to go, then pin all the other hair back to make sure you don't cut it accidentally.  A good judge of exactly what length they should be and how they should be cut is probably your sister.  She probably looks similar enough to you generally that what works for her would probably be pretty close to what's going to work for you (you may not look that much alike, but if you have similar foreheads that would work).  Just cut yours the same angle and length that hers are.  Ask her to hold hers straight for you so you can see if they are cut straight across or at an angle and so you can get an idea of the exact length, then just imitate it.

 Hi,

 I admit, I love cutting my own hair!!!!

 I prefer my Stylist Mary to color it(highlights/lowlights) as necessary though.

 

God Bless,...

hello Katie.

yeah i understand, coloring is not always so easy, especially if ur doing high-/lowlights.. also if u don't know how to choose a suitable color. but if u know what color matches ur skintone, an all-over-application is usually pretty easy!

I cut my bangs. It's really not that hard to duplicate what a stylist can do with them.

I have always cut my own hair. My sister did do it once or twice. I really like doing it, I just hate seeing hair coming out of my head. I have never colored my hair and never tend to(unless I get gray at an early age.)! I think that to get your bangs from looking like part of your hair,is to keep them cut really short and if you have problems with that.......go to a stylist.HTH!   ~~LISA~~

wow! i've never seen a guy cut their own hair, that should be amusing lol.. but i would imagine it's tough to do, especially cutting the back of the head. my hair is long, so i can always bring it in front of my face to see what i'm doing, and i'm guessing that's not the case for him

 Hi,

 I think it's common  for most people to try cutting their hair, at least once in their life.

 However I feel like I can relate. I've been cutting my own hair for about 11 years now.

 I usually get compliments on my hair. Plus I save money!;)

God Bless,...
Katie

Yea, you do save alot of money cutting your own hair...I've only done trims on my hair, which turned out pretty good, but I'm pretty sure I would trust myself doing my own hair. If you don't have a steady hand, of course, I wouldn't recommend doing it! And I don't know if my boyfriend would ever feel comfortable with cutting my hair, because I don't plan on getting it cut!

My brother also cuts his own hair...he's been keeping it short, but recently has started growing it longer, so I don't think it's all that unusual for guys to cut their hair and definitely not unusual for girls to.

I also cut my hair at home, in a one-length bob roughly a bit past the tip of my beard. the back is not so hard to cut because my landlord has a rear-view mirror. the front is harder to cut so that it doesn't flip out.
