Just cut my own hair yesterday. I like to use the razor comb it has the shape of your head. One size is wide teeth the other is smaller. I have thick hair so for me it works especially since I keep it short. With a little hair setting gel I am always in shape and ready to go.

When it's longer, I do my own (and I 'buzz' dh and the ds's when they're home). When mine is shorter than shoulder length, I get it cut.

I am growing it out now to save $$. Also letting it go grey and see how I like it. If I don't there's always L'oreal.

Last week I gave in and bought a clipper set w/an instructional DVD.

I cut my DH's and DS's hair and I must say that they turned out better than I thought it would!

My DH doesn't have a lot of hair so I just cut it short. My son likes his hair really short on the sides so I used the clippers there. I cut the top short with scissors. I haven't perfected blending the top with the sides but it doesn't look odd either.

I trim my DD's bangs once in a while but I won't even attempt to cut my own hair.

Getting ready for DH to trim me up around my ears and the back. I keep my hair rather short so if we mess up I just buzz all mine off; no big deal for me. ANd washing and drying is really easy: plus I can find the ticks easy! LOL

My hair is long and I try to cut and layer it. I also cut dh hair as well as both grandsons hair. Saves money and if you make a mistake it will grow back.

Blessings,
Dawn

I cut my hair using the ponytail at the forehead and snip it wet. It worked great! Only I forgot I needed the front hair long enough to reach a ponytail in back. So next time (after my front hair grows out) I will move the ponytail to the crown of my head and then snip. It did layer though like I wanted it to.

My hair is straight so I trim the ends myself a couple times a year. I trim the kids hair as well to stretch out the time from hair cuts.

I never would have thought about trimming in a pony tail to get a layered look.
