  • Should you cut your own hair?The short answer is‘hell no.’HairdresserKeri Danielsays she feels “sorry for all the stylists who, after this, will be dealing with a lot of DIY disasters.” But if you simply can not wait for some reason, Daniel highly recommends you make an investment into the proper tools to get the job done.Bowl and scissors aren’t going to work.Check your local shops or online for a decent pair of hairdressing scissors, cutting combs, and even some razors. Daniel says “even a professional would struggle to get a good result using the kitchen scissors.’
  • Fringes.If you’re rocking a fringe look, remember to cut upwards, not across, using just the tips of the scissors. Daniel suggests “using a wide-tooth comb, pulling the hair down to the eyebrows and then lifting it slightly [before cutting].” Also,some prayers couldn’t hurt.
  • Get some help.It’s time for you and your roommate to get closer than you ever have before. While you might be able to pull off a cut by yourself using the bathroom mirror and finding the perfect angle for your phone to see the back of your head, it’s probably easier just to turn the scissors over to someone you live with.
  • Running out of shampoo and conditioner.If you can’t find hair care products and the “no-poo” movement isn’t for you, celebrity stylist Jamie Steven has a couple of solutions for you. Jamie says mayo, avocado, or coconut oil could replace your conditioner and shower gel can substitute for shampoo if you’re desperate. Or you could embrace the grease. Who’s going to see your head anyways?
