Do you cut your hair yourself?

Dear All,

I just got back from a hairstylist and am soooo unhappy. I had very long hair and asked my hairdresser (where I have never been before) to keep the V shape and just try to get me a little more volume and trim the ends.

Now first of all she cut them wet. I know BIG mistake, but I was too shy to say something. She cut my front way too short, so that I ended up with a extreme V shape. This will take years to grow back...

I had a devacut before and wasn´t happy either.

Does anyone her cut their hair themselves? I am scared, but I don´t trust anyone anymore with my hair. :sad1: If so, how do you do it? I looked up a couple videos on YT but haven´t found a really good one.

    I'm with you on not trusting anyone else with my hair I want to know that if it ends up lookig messed up or something, that atleast I didn't pay someone to mess it up lol. I did my big chop myself and I did my recent cut in august by myself. I just took a chance and luckily it came out right.

    2 1/2 years ago, I had a stroke (a brain bleed) and had to have brain surgery. My hair had to be cut off. My hair grows like a "bad weed" - my mother's description. My hair has grown back to past its former length. I know it has no shape but I'm scared I'll screw it up and I'm scared a stylist will hurt my still sensitive head.
