Cutting your own hair, Really?

I just read an article about people cutting their own hair to save money. Now, you would think a stylist would tell you it is a colossaly bad idea to cut your own hair. I say, go for it. Then call me, and I will fix the damage.

Yes, cutting hair is simple and easy, just grab some shears and hack away. Styling hair to make it fall properly, to look full and lush, well that takes artistry and training.

I have spent years studying to become a Master Stylist. I have spent years learning and updating my credentials to become a Master Colorist.

Sassoon training is only one aspect of my background, but I thought it might be the most recognizable to all of you. Rather then me trying to explain how it works, I thought I would quote from one of the masters. Listen to what he has to say:

DD: In manuals such as “Cutting Hair the Vidal Sassoon Way” (1978), there is a chapter entitled “The Psychology of Haircutting” with a paragraph on bone structure. How important is anatomy in hairdressing?
Vidal Sassoon: No question: analysing faces, knowing bones, studying the height of the bones before you cut and making sure that the cut will look well from every angle is extremely important. Haircutting is not just about sitting someone in a chair and going ‘chop chop chop’, it’s really about studying the anatomy of the person you are working on.

Designing the best style for your hair type, the way your hair lays naturally, cutting it just right so that when you style your hair at home it looks just as good as when I style it at the salon. Being confident enough to tell you when a cut will NOT work with your hair and face. Working WITH you to make you look your best.

Ask people who have had a bad cut how much that affected their lives. To save a few bucks you can end up with weeks or months of bad hair days. I don’t think that’s the best way to save money, do you?
