I cut my own hair, although I don't do layers (I sed to do the pony tail cut in the past, it's brilliant but I fancied a change so I grew the layers out). I use a really similar technique to the one in this video fr the back length, then I shape around the front. I think ths video is quite useful if you are layering too actually! I always 'point cut'.
I usually get my hair cut at a well know chain salon, and my hairdresser is lovely, but I am tired of forking out 40 quid for the smallest of trims, plus having to go in every month for a fringe trim.
So today, along with trimming my own fringe (eeeeek!), I did the Mumsnet haircut and it was great - so easy! However, I realised that unless I was to cut quite a bit off, I would not be cutting anything off the back would I? I only cut a tiny bit off, as I had seen references on here to Cadfael, so was extra cautious
Some people on here have talked about doing a ponytail at the nape of the neck and cutting, to trim a bit off the back - but would this not mean that your hair goes up in the middle at the back? I just want a tiny trim to get rid of split ends.
