    Default Introducing myself

    Hi I'm Mirinda,

    I recently cut my damaged waist length hair to just a bit longer than armpit length.

    My hair is dye free and in good condition now, but I'd like to get back to waist length. I'd also like to learn how to trim my own hair in future!

    Hey! Welcome!

    Most of us, for regular blunt, U-shape or V-cuts rely on something called "Feye's self-trimming method". It is here:
    https://feyeselftrim.livejournal.com/

    If you are going to attempt it, print the instructions out, and do not second-guess based on how the hair is laying. Just do it before a wash, then wash it and dry it and it will be straight as it can possibly be. Just trust the method! Don't go by what your hair looks like at first. By that I mean, do not keep "evening it up". That is a recipe for disaster!

    There's also layering methods here on the site, but if interested in those, give me a shout and I'll talk about those (my hair is layered, it's not natural taper). I would not try these for hair shorter than BSL (bra strap length), though, unless you want the rocker dude vibe.
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)
