Cut hair myself?

ninja_pandaninja_panda Posts: 2Registered Users
Hi! I have hair that is a little bit curlier then 3b but not as curly as 3c (a lot like sunkissalba's). There is not a single curly hair specialist in my area and I really need a trim. My mom used to cut it for me but she doesn't really know how because her hair is way different from mine (I am mom is white and my dad is black). I really want to cut it myself and I'm really scared that I will mess it up but I'm willing to give it a try. I have looked on YouTube for a good video for my hair type but I can't find one that will work with my hair. If you have any tips or know of a video I should watch please let my know. Thanks :batman:

    Here is a picture. Sorry it's not very good. My curls are usually more defined then they look in the picture.

    I'd say braid it and snip the ends

    if you can get a copy of lorraine massey's book, the curly girl, 2009 edition, she tells you how to trim the ends. there is also a video that comes with the book that illustrates this.
    you can try your library, or amazon or any bookstore.
