There is no substitute for a professional haircut, but if you are unable to visit your hairdresser regularly, here are some tips of how to cut hair in layers at home. Hair should always be cut wet, since this will help you to achieve a more even cut, and scissors should be sharp. You will also need Scotch tape, a comb, clips to hold hair out of the way, a blow-dryer and two mirrors ( so that you can check the back of your hair).
How to Cut Hair in Layers at Home: Bob Cutting
If you have fine hair, simply tape it in place in the direction in which it was cut, just above the line you want, and trim. Thicker hair is slightly more difficult as you have to work in sections. Make a center parting down the back of your head and clip hair out of the way. Then make a horizontal parting just above the nape, place a strip of tape around the back of your head above the line you want, and cut the hair little by little. When you have completed this section, make another horizontal parting above the first one, retape and cut again. Repeat the process until all the hair is cut, using two tapes as the hair gets thicker to hold it in place.
How to Cut Hair in Layers at Home: Fringe Cutting
Comb your fringe down from a parting or the crown of your head, in the direction in which it was originally cut, and tape right round from one side to the other. Cut a small section in the front of the fringe above your nose, and then cut towards the right and then the left. Leave the fringe a little bit longer than you want it, as the tape is pressing the hair flat against your forehead and it will look shorter when blown dry.
How to Cut Hair in Layers at Home: Long Hair Cutting
This is easy to trim yourself. Part your hair in the middle from the front to the nape, then comb it straight slightly over the shoulder. Then your head to one side, place the hair flat on your chest or neck depending on its length, and secure it firmly with tape. Make sure that this is perfectly positioned before you start, then cut right across using the tape as a guide.
How to Cut Hair in Layers at Home: Turned-under Look Cutting
Follow the instructions for long hair, but tilt your head away from the cutting side when you tape and cut. This results in the top layer being longer than the bottom layer. Again, use the tape as a guide when cutting.
