Why DIY Haircuts Don't Workout

by Brianna Thompson
During the pandemic, some people have resorted to take matters in their own hands when it comes to haircutting and decided to YouTube it in their house. While the idea of saving money and avoiding a trip to the salon might be tempting, there are several reasons why it is important to not cut your hair at home.

It Can be Dangerous.
 

Cutting your own hair can be a risky and potentially dangerous endeavor. Professional hairstylists like me undergo extensive training and education to learn about the anatomy of hair, as well as how to use scissors, clippers, and other tools safely and effectively. Without this knowledge and experience, you may accidentally injure yourself or damage your hair beyond repair.


The Results Could Be Risky

In addition to safety concerns, cutting your own hair can also result in a less-than-ideal outcome. While it may seem straightforward to trim your own bangs or give yourself a quick trim, it can be challenging to achieve a precise and polished look without the proper tools and expertise. This can lead to uneven or choppy haircuts, which may require further corrective measures to fix. Simply pinning up your hair in sections and cutting ponytails doesn't always work for everyone! I'm sorry ladies they just don't come out cute, and Brad Mondo can only do so much.
Challenging and Time Consuming
 

Cutting your own hair can be a frustrating and time-consuming process, especially if you are not accustomed to doing it yourself. Without the help of a professional, it can be challenging to see the back of your head or reach certain areas with ease. This can lead to frustration and even giving up halfway through the process, resulting in an incomplete or unbalanced haircut. The process overall may not be a fun experience, especially after you risk botching your own cut. 
Missing Out On A Salon Experience
 

Finally, there is something to be said about the experience of visiting a salon or barbershop. These places offer a relaxing and indulgent atmosphere, with trained professionals who can offer personalized advice and recommendations based on your hair type and desired style. Cutting your own hair at home eliminates this opportunity for self-care and pampering, which can be a much-needed escape from the stresses of daily life.


While it may seem tempting and impulsive to cut your own hair at home, the risks and potential consequences outweigh the benefits. To ensure a safe and satisfactory haircut, it is best to leave it to the professionals, obviously one you research and trust.
