    Question Who can you trust to trim your hair?


    I might possibly need a micro-trim but I don't want to do it myself.....who can I trust to trim my delicate fine hair & why? I prefer dry cutting, as hair is more easily damaged while wet....plus when you cut it wet it tends to "shrink" & get shorter than originally intended!

    Well I trust me to trim my hair!

    But you have only 4" of length? In that case... I probably wouldn't cut my own hair, because it needs to have enough length to use Feye's method for me to do it.

    What I would do is I would find a good salon (get some recommendations) and take a friend with me to get it trimmed. Be very specific about what you want (how much trimmed off) and have your friend watch like a hawk to ensure the hairdresser doesn't cut off too much!

    Also, ask them to cut your hair dry if possible!
    Starting over short and working towards virgin hair!

    I second asking around for recommendations and making sure that the stylist will listen to your concerns, etc.

    I trim off a small amount (1/4 in.) every month. If I was going to cut off a lot I think that I would go to a salon & get it cut. I don't trust myself to get it straight.

    I trust my sister, and myself. No one else.

    ETA: I'd trust DBF too, but he's not willing to risk it

    I trust myself and my bestie who went to beauty school. But my hair is long enough that I can trim myself.

    If you don't have a stylist you can trust, do you have a particularly crafty friend? For some reason I'm thinking crafty people could cut straight and follow directions...

    When I was younger my father used to cut my hair. Now that I've learned feye's self trim, I do it myself, with my boyfriend to oversee.

    I would trust my mom except for her long history of always cutting herself crooked bangs.

    I trust my mom and myself
    But if you want someone with experience in cutting hair, try looking for a barber (not a hair stylist), they usually listen and do what you want not what they want...

    If I don't do it myself my middle kid will. She's very precise and actually does a better job than I do.
