How do you trim the ends of your own hair?

Now that it is time to cut the ends of your hair, you need to follow a few key steps to get the best result. This will help you make sure that your hair looks even and beautiful when finished. Follow these important steps:

Ensure that the scissors are sharp and clean before using them on your hair. If they’ve been sitting around for a while, try taking them into a professional shop to have them cleaned or replaced with new ones. It’s important not to use dull scissors because they’ll cause jagged edges instead of smooth lines for this trick-cut technique to work correctly! Make sure all other tools (such as combs) are also ready beforehand. Everything has been trimmed evenly. Wet your hair completely and comb it through so that all the strands are lying flat. This will help you see where you need to cut more accurately. Using a clip or elastic band, section off the top portion of your hair from the bottom. Take the bottom section of your hair in one hand and hold it taut (but not stretched). With your other hand, take the scissors and trim away about ½ inch to ¾ inch of hair, angling them towards the floor as you go. Be very careful – if you’re not confident in doing this yourself, have someone else do it for you! Alternatively, instead of cutting vertically like this, some people find it easier to cut horizontally across the ends of their hair instead.

The importance of trimming the ends of your hair

We often receive one question at our salon is whether or not trimming the ends of one’s hair makes a difference in its health. This article will tell you why it makes a difference and what happens if you don’t get regular trims. I will also explain what should be considered when choosing the right hairstylist who can give you the look and style best suits your face shape.

First of all, let me explain briefly why we need to get regular trims. When our hair grows, the ends will become thinner and more fragile due to several factors such as sun exposure, heat from blow-dryers or flat irons, and chemical treatments like coloring or perms. When this happens, our usually smooth cuticle (the outermost layer of each strand) gets damaged, resulting in split ends. The “split” can spread up the rest of the strands causing more damage until they eventually break off completely if not treated properly with a haircut. This process weakens our hair making it appear thinner, drier, and less shiny.
