    Default any self-trimmers out there?

    Watched a video on youtube by diesushibitch (sorry, can't find the link) where she trims her hair by putting it in a ponytail, sliding it all the way to the ends and then trimming them very slightly.

    Has anyone ever used this method? What shape ends did it leave you with? Wouldn't it leave your ends in an upside-down u shape?

    Ive only seen feye's method and I don't think I could get my hair even with it. I need a trim and don't trust the hairdresser. Last time I got a trim was this time last year - I asked for 2in off and went from just below waist to bsl Will not be back there (and yes, I kicked up a huge fuss and refused to pay so would probably not be welcome anyway )

    I've trimmed using Feye's method.
    I think the shape you end up with depends on whether your head is tilted downward or upward. I didn't really trim enough off to notice a change in the shape of my hemline, though...I only took off between 1/4 and 1/2 inch.

    The description of the video sounds exactly like Feye's self trim to me . . . however, I don't use Feye's method for self-trimming (my hair is too slippery, the elastic would just slide right on off the ends), so perhaps I'm wrong.

    If you've got a friend you trust, perhaps you can self-trim using Feye's method, then ask your friend to help check for any uneven bits?

    How long is your hair currently?

    I have been self trimming for years. I divide my hair in half and bring each side up to the front (clean hair). In the mirror I will give it a gentle brush or combing, then just use two of my fingers to 'catch' the hair where I want to trim, then bring it closer to me so I can easily do so. It has always looked just fine at the back - even and straight across. I don't trim off very much at all

    Fairly certain that is Emichiee here on LHC. It does sound like Feye's self trimming method. I found it to give me a slightly tapering hemline for some reason. So I trim my hair like Shikara does, it gives my ends a bit more of a blunt cut.

    ETA: Here are both ways you can trim your hair: Feye's Self Trim I found the parting to the front works best, but it does get a bit harder as your hair gets longer..

    Yeah, that is definately our Emi, I haven't seen her around too much lately but I am glad to see her channel is still out there educating the masses. I hadn't seen that particular vid before, it is really interesting.

    It looks like Feye's method but I haven't seen pictures of it done on such long hair before, very cool.

    That's how I trim mine too . . . but I think one's hair needs to get to a certain length in order to do it this way. Or be super flexible perhaps (^(oo)^)v

    I self-trim too! I'm pretty sure she wrote right in the video that she was demonstrating Feye's method.

    I have been self-trimming since August and like many others here, I have had great success with it. I've seen a vast improvement in my hemline since I started trimming.
