    I should add that my hair looks *particularly* tousled due to my sitting on the floor with one year olds all day, and my hair is grabbed, chewed on , and played with. :P

    Wow, it looks great! That's an amazing DIY cut! I never have the guts to give myself a haircut. :p I'm getting close, though -- those long straightish pieces that stick out under my curls are really getting on my nerves! Anyway, I LOVE it! You did such a great job! Can you cut MY hair?! :D

    Wow!!!!!!! That is an awesome and adorable cut! That is so cool that you were able to do that yourself. Now you just saved a ton of money that would have been spent at the salon!

    Holy moly!! Such a flattering and awesome cut! And I think it's funny that you explained why your hair look tousled; I think you should have 1 year old play with your hair everyday, your curls look amazing! I'd give anything for them. Great job!!:blob2:

    Your hair is SO cute! I was going to trim my bangs a little this morning and totally chickened out! It is AWESOME that you were able to give yourself a complete haircut!!

    This is over the weekend before I cut my hair. The cut was easy-peasy to do!!! I am sooo glad I decided to whack my hair off myself LOL :geek: hubby is glad I won't be spending more money at the salon! I have wanted a cut like this one for years, and it's ironic that I got it when I cut my own hair! Thanks for all the curly love ladies :)

    Being a self cutter myself, I'm especially impressed with the great job you did in the back. Fabulous job.

    WnW- You can do eeet!! Cutting the straight ends sticking out the bottom isn't that hard and you'll like it better. :love8: I don't think you could make it worse anyway. :tongue:

    It suits you well! That's very brave of you to cut your hair on your own. However it still looks good. Great job!
  • southernfibersouthernfiber Posts: 20Registered Users
    I pulled my hair into a ponytail at the nape of my neck and cut across, then pulled my hair into a ponytail at the top of my head and cut across. Results: bob with layers! It's so easy!

    I should add that I cut only about 1/2 inch off from the pony on top of my head. It was enough to create layers.
