Hi

I have a pair of thinning scissors and I want to cut my own hair so that it looks something like this:



I've done thinning with the scissors (cutting vertically) but I need to get my hair shorter...when I get my hair cut at a salon they do this thing where they grab some hair between their index and middle fingers and they cut that particular tuft of hair 2-3 times quickly at different places--at the first time nearer to the scalp and the next ones are closer to the end of the hair.

Also, how can I cut my hair so that my head looks a bit more flatter at the top? I still want it to have a nice circular arc but right now it looks like the top of a Saguaro cactus and makes my head looks elongated...should I cut more around the top rather than on the sides or what?

Thank you~

I insist that you should go to parlor to get your hair done so it would be look like that on the picture you've posted.

I agree. For this kind of styling, I insist that you should go to a parlor to make your hair done just the way you wanted. I think it's difficult to style your own hair.

It's very difficult to cut our own hair. Its better to find a perfect hair dressers for your hair cut.

That is a cute style.
 
The problem is in the layering of the cut.  It would be difficult to cut it in a mirror.  You need someone to cut it for you.  Plus, you need someone to see your face.  This cut is very much dependent on the face.
 
To get this, someone has to look at your face out of your own perspective.  An eye that is not based on what you see, but what others would see. A person really has to look at your at least three feet away from you to see if the effect is right.   Once you try to do it yourself... it will be wrong.
 
This hairstyle needs a professional touch.  Someone who can "read" your face and make the cuts accordingly.  This cut is a face thing.  It can't just be created from the picture.  You need someone who understands what your hair does, where it will lie, and how to frame your own face derictly to make it work.
 
I would not recommend this being done at home.
Guys like me notice!
