Adir’s Top 5 Rules For An At Home Hair Trim
1 Use proper hair shears. Do NOT use kitchen scissors.
2 Make sure you are wearing a color that contrasts with your hair. If you have dark hair wear a light shirt, and if you have light hair wear a dark shirt. This way you will be able to see the hair really well.
3 Do not cut your hair while looking down. You need to be staring straight ahead into the mirror with your chin level and center.
4 Avoid cutting the hair horizontally. Instead, use the scissors vertically and snip into the hair. Although this sounds counterintuitive, this will give you a much better results.
5 Always cut your hair dry and in the style that you wear it. So, if you have curly hair but you wear it straight then make sure it’s straight before you attempt to give yourself any sort of cut.
