Welcome back to my channel.
In today’s video, I’m going to do somethingtotally different and it may well go very wrong.
It actually did not go wrong.
It went very right.
I just cut my hair on YouTube, and I’m superexcited with the way that it turned out.
So, I’m gonna share this tutorial with youguys.
This is for all of you busy women out there,busy students on the go, busy moms–all you women who are looking to give yourself a littletrim without spending that extra cash.
So, I hope you enjoy this tutorial.

I love you guys.
I hope you enjoy.
Here is everything that I’ll be using forthis tutorial.
A garbage bag to create a little protectorfor my clothes, a paddle brush, a comb, hair scissors, some hair elastics, and just somewater in a water bottle.
First thing that I am going to do is brushthis hair to make it as straight as possible.
I already washed my hair maybe 40 minutesprior to filming this tutorial, but it’s already kind of dry.
So, I’m going to need to spritz it withsome water to get it a little bit more damp.
Next, I’m gonna take my garbage bag andsome scissors, and I’m gonna create a little t-shirt–a little protective t-shirt for myclothes and also for my room because I’m not trying to have any hair in my video room.
So, I just cut out a hole for my head.
That should be big enough, and then I’mgonna cut out some arm holes.
I think I’m just gonna cut all the way down.
Then, I’m gonna put this creation over myhead.
Exactly what I was looking for.
So, now that I’m cutting my hair, my tableand my floor will be protected.
I’m gonna flip all of my hair forward.
I’m gonna brush it out one more time, andthen I’m going to separate it in the middle.
I’m gonna create a part using this comb.
I’m gonna keep it as straight and even aspossible so that both sides of my hair are equal, meaning that there’s the same amountof hair in this side as in this side.
I gotta say, I’m a little nervous.
I’ve done this countless times, but I’venever done this on camera.
So, I’m afraid that I may mess up, but Ihope I won’t.
I find that working with wet hair is mucheasier than working with dry hair.
So, that’s why I’m doing that.
I’m gonna brush it out one more time.
Because my hair is layered, I just want totrim the bottom part of my hair.
So, the longest layer.
What I’m gonna do is take about this muchoff.
Whew, here it goes.
And then, I’m gonna use my comb to makeit even straighter.
Now, that actually looks a lot more than aninch and a half–more like two inches and a half, but that’s okay.
My hair was dead anyway.
Time to make them match.
I’m gonna repeat the same thing on the otherside.
Brush it out, take it into my fingers, usemy fingers as a guide first, and then use the comb for a straight edge.
Next thing I’m gonna do is gather up allof my hair in this front pony.
This could be a style, huh? And I’m just gonna secure it with an elastic,brush it out, and then I’m gonna chop a little bit from the bottom of the pony.
Something like this.
Now, because you don’t want everything tobe super straight, you can go into the hair and cut vertically, like so.
It also helps to sort of twist the hair andcut it at a diagonal.
Especially if you have layers, this is a greattrick for layers.
I’m gonna split my hair down the centerone more time and I’m just gonna do the same thing–cutting upwards–on each of thetwo sides.
Combing this hair, picking it up with my fingers,and I’m gonna flip over the ends so I can see them and so that you can see them.
Something like this, and then I’m goingto sporadically go in and gently cut on a vertical angle.
Same thing on the other side.
Just a little vertical action.
This helps to sort of sheer out the volumeof your ends because you don’t want your hair to kind of look like a bell.
It’s not not cute.
You want it to be thinner on the bottom sothat it’s nice and fluffy and full of volume on the top.
Just spraying over the front of my hair becauseI’m gonna do a little trim here too.
I’m getting really ambitious here.
I’m going to go down on a sort of diagonaland very gently trim off that angle like that.
I’m not gonna get too crazy because, honestly,I don’t even know if this is gonna look good.
I’m hoping it will.
And I promise you this is much easier to doin the comfort of your own bathroom in front of your mirror then in front of the camera.
There we go.
If you’re a righty, just use your righthand.
Just flip it over, and get this sort of anglegoing, and boom.
Just making sure that these two are even.
Let me blow dry this hair and I’ll be rightback with the final result.
Alright, and here is the big reveal.
I’m gonna push all of my hair to the frontso you could really see it.
Not bad, huh? What do you guys think? Here’s what it looks like from the back.
I personally have not seen it, but Lee saysit looks good.
So, I trust him.
I think it’s a yay.
Honestly, I’m really, really happy withthe way that it turned out.
I was super nervous, kinda jittery duringthe whole tutorial part–especially when I was cutting the hair–but now I can breatheout a big sigh of relief–phew–and I’m really happy that this video can be helpfulto some of you.
Especially with school right around the corner,I know all of you busy students, busy moms, busy women on the go, this is kinda somethingthat will make your life a little bit easier because, let’s face it, hair cuts and trimscost about the same and who has time to get them every three to four months? I certainly don’t.
This is exactly why I made this tutorial foryou guys.
So, thank you guys so much for watching.
I hope you enjoyed it.
I’ll see you in the next one.
