A step towards minimalism, inspired by necessity and the pandemic…
My husband has been cutting his own hair for years. We already had clippers. I bought a new pair of hair cutting scissors. I wanted a new, sharp pair.
My hair is quite long. I had not had a haircut in at least 6 months. In that time, I had started to trim the ends myself. Then my bangs.
But overall, I was feeling more and more shaggy. My hair tangled easily and the ends were pretty damaged.
I watched YouTube videos and started gathering my courage. Finally, I convinced myself that my hair was long enough that if I completely botched it, I would still have some hair left, and could pay someone else to fix it.
I ended up following the video from Pick Up Limes here. It took a while, and my arms got tired, but I am very happy with the result!
Verdict: go for it!
