When you have short hair, it is easier to trim your hair at home as it gives you a new look without incurring any expenses.

When cutting your own hair at home, avoid complex styles as it is easy to mess up because you are not an expert. Stick to the simple and common shaving styles that are easy to attain, especially for a beginner. The following are the steps to follow when styling short haircuts at home;

  1. Assemble The Tools You Need

The first step to styling a great haircut at home is assembling the necessary hairstyling tools. It is very important that you gather all the tools that you need before you begin the shaving process so that you do not need to stop during the process to look for a tool.

Depending on the length of hair you want to be left on the head, you can choose to use clippers or a pair of scissors. Any can do. Choose a sharp tool to ensure that the hair is cut in an even length on the whole head without leaving bumps that may compromise on the entire hairstyle.

When using clippers, always ensure that you have the right blade sizes depending on the type of short haircuts that you want. This will make it easier to achieve the hair length that you desire. It is also important that you get a beard trimmer to help cut the hair around the neck and the ears.

  1. Ask For Help

Cutting your hair at home does not necessarily mean that you should do it on your own. This is because cutting your hair is harder than many people presume it to be. This means that if there is anybody who can help you out, you should ask for their assistance. Having someone else cut your hair eases the entire process.

You are likely to get a neater and cleaner cut when someone else is doing the job for you. This does not, however, mean that you cannot do the task yourself. If there is no one else to help you out, you can use two mirrors. One on the front and another at the back of the head in order to ensure that you cut the hair to an even length.

  1. Use a Certain Procedure

Do not just cut the hair anyhow just to get it off your head. Adopt a procedure to use to ensure that you get the short haircuts that you desire. It is advisable to start with the largest clipper blade going down to the smallest till you achieve the hair length you desire. This is because, once you have cut the hair short at the beginning, it cannot go back to a larger length.

Always clean the blade after each upward motion on the head to remove all the hair. This ensures that the hair is cut into an even length. Make round motions all-round the head in order to cover all parts of the head. Always shave against the hair grain so as to remove any hair that has been laid down on the scalp.

Once you are satisfied with the hair length, you can use a pair of scissors to trim off any hair that is not in position. This helps to keep the haircut very neat and presentable. Trim the hairline at the front to make a perfect curve.

  1. Be Patient

Cutting our own hair requires a lot of patience. Take your time to make the cut you want, and never cut your hair when you are in a rush. Take time to comb the hair before you begin to shave so as to remove any tangles. 

Washing the hair also helps to keep it in its natural state, which is usually easier to shave. If you are not a professional, do not attempt any complex short haircuts, as you can end up messing up.
