Did You Know You Can Not Only Cut Your Hair But Your Pet’s Hair Too

Did you know that you can not only cut your hair at home but your pet’s hair too?

That’s right! All you need is the right set of tools, you’ll need some shears that come in many colors to fit your styles such as matte black shears, or stainless steel shears. You will also need some combs, a cape if you have one, and some patience.

Cutting your pet’s hair at home can save you a lot of money and it is actually not that difficult to do. Just follow these simple steps and you’ll be able to give your pet a great haircut in no time!

Now Onto Your Own Hair, Start By Washing It

It is best to use a clarifying shampoo to remove any buildup from styling products. If you have time, let your hair air dry until it is only slightly damp before beginning the cutting process.

If you are short on time, you can towel dry your hair but make sure not to rub it too vigorously as this can cause frizz. Once your hair is prepped and ready to go, it’s time to start cutting!

Section Your Hair Out

Start by sectioning your hair out. You will want to start with the back section. Comb your hair straight back and then use a clip or band to secure it away from the rest of your hair.

Next, you will move on to the sides. Again, comb your hair straight back and then use a clip or band to secure it.

Finally, you will work on the top section of your hair. Comb it forward and then use a clip or band to secure it. Now that your hair is sectioned out, you are ready to start cutting!

If You Have Bangs, Cut Them First 

If you have bangs, cut them first. This will help you to avoid accidentally cutting them too short. To cut bangs, comb them straight down and then snip off the ends.

Remember to cut slowly and carefully. Once your bangs are the right length, you can move on to cutting the rest of your hair.

Start With The Back Section 

Now that your hair is sectioned out, you can start with the back section. Take your comb and make a horizontal part about an inch above the nape of your neck.

This is where you will start cutting. To cut, hold the scissors parallel to your hair and then snip off the ends. 

Remember to cut slowly and carefully. More can always be removed, but it cannot be put back on.

Once you have cut the first layer, comb your hair down and make another horizontal part about an inch above the first one.

Cut this section in the same way as the first. Continue making horizontal parts and cutting until you reach the top of your head.
