I have long straight hair, a friend trims the ends/length of my hair now and then.. I trim the fringey bits when I need to..
I have read most of the MN haircut threads, would really like to be able to cut my own hair, I don't want layering etc. just the split ends at the tips, is this possible?
Please help!

I did it. It was fine. I only cut a bit but tempted to do some more. I watched a YouTube

I have been cutting my hair for 2 years now.

Sometimes I do the mumsnt cut but most of the time I do the straight across trim that I saw someone do on YouTube.

I am not as keen on the mumsnet cut.

I mentored a few months ago to a friend that I hadn't been to a hairdresser for a long time and they were very surprised and said they always thought my hair looked so fresh and neat

Could you link to the straight across trim? Or explain please? Thank you smile

I can't find the link (it was long time ago but by a Eastern European blonde lady)

She says to wash hair, brush it through with your normal parting.
Bring sections of hair forward and trim each straight across using a mirror to check the overall length. Obviously match up left side with right hand side.

By doing it this way it leaves the hair with a natural curve once it is dry and hanging down your back

To add: it also takes but 5 mins or less even.

So it's something I can just do when I am out of the bath and fancy a trim

Ok thank you! I would be worried about it being uneaven once it's sat on my back if you know what I mean!

I have very curly hair which is particularly forgiving on home haircuts as long as I don't take too much off! I wouldn't attempt a home cut on poker straight hair, or even wavy hair to be honest.

I have done the mumsnet haircut in the past and it looked great but this month I tried this

which gave me less straggly ends.

She also has a good cut your own fringe tutorial
