There are generally at least two types that are always best to have on hand:

The straight blade scissors : ideal for straight cuts and scaling
The scissors with comb : perfect for thinning the hair

It is also important to have a good comb to carefully separate the strands and to take the right amount of hair to cut from time to time. In doing so you will have to try to comb your hair well , in order not to ruin its structure.

The techniques for cutting your hair yourself

Now that we have seen what the indispensable tools are, it is important to understand how to move.

For those who have always wondered how to cut long hair alone, for example, one of the most used techniques is that of pigtails. In fact, it is enough to stop the locks with an elastic at the height you want to obtain (better to keep a few centimeters lower) and make a clean cut. In this way you will be sure not to make mistakes.

Those who do not know how to cut their hair short by themselves, on the other hand, will have to worry about getting it wet and start cutting following the natural shape of the head . Obviously if we are talking about extremely short hair it will also be necessary to have a razor for the shorter areas.

Finally, those who simply want to trim their hair alone, can divide the hair into many locks (always after having wet the tips well). At that point, with the straight scissors you will go to slowly check the various lengths. What matters is to always proceed with caution and without any rush.
