When I was wearing my hair long, I used to trim it myself about once a year.  It was easier than trying to convince a stylist that there was no point in trying to shape and style it, because it'd just do what it wanted anyhow.  It was cheaper, too.  :D

That's something I've never figured out how to do … trim my own hair. How the heck do you get it straight? Besides, if I'm too lazy to go the hairdresser, I'm definitely too lazy to do it myself. :D

I did it pretty much the way I do everything else, by measuring it.  By the time it needed a trim, my hair was roughly 18 inches long.  I took a one-foot ruler, put one end against my head, held a lock of hair alongside it, and cut off whatever extended past the other end.  And repeated.  Repeatedly.  It was simple enough that I really couldn't mess it up, but it was tedious and time-consuming.  On the other hand, I needed to do it only once a year or so.  As I said, it was easier than arguing with a stylist.

My mother had a different system, which I never did understand.  She wore her hair fairly short (about down to her collar in back) and parted on one side, with natural waves and a bit of curl.  She virtually always cut it herself, even after her eyesight got really bad.  She generally stood in front of a mirror, but just the one, so she had no way to see the back.  I assume she did it by feel, and it always looked very nice.

Egad. I think I'm just not nimble enough with a ruler (or maybe it's the scissors). Either way, I could never pull that off!

Well then, call on your artistic talents and be creative!  I used the ruler as a poor substitute for that sort of thing.

Oh, no no no.... trust me, this is a job for a professional!

I know a lady who cuts and streaks her own hair. That's all the incentive I need to not follow suite..... (She's an adorable person, though.)

Me neither, it would look terrible.  My dad cuts his own hair, but his hair is curly, and he’d have to really mess up badly for any errors to be noticeable.  My hair is straight and smooth, so the slightest unevenness sticks out like a sore thumb.  There’s no way I could do it myself without it looking like I just sawed it off with a sharp knife.

Precisely.

Same here. I tried to cut my bang though (I seriously couldn't find the right word and mistakenly put fang until before I posted it, imagine how bad ass it is when you guys read it with fang).

I do feel bad with my hair, it's not troublesome at all, but many times I think it deserves more products and treatment than just shampoo and conditioner (no John, according to Sherlock, shampoo is not hair product, but you shouldn't hear him since you have too much product now)

Nah, I think the less product you use the better for your fang. Er, hair.

True, and I should have mentioned that my hair is curly/wavy.  Of course, that also means that a perfect haircut isn't going to look any better than a fairly good haircut, because my hair is going to do its own thing, regardless.  So it's both a curse and a blessing.
