I am so excited to share with you an
ultra-simple, super-quick way to cut your hair in beautiful layers! You can
easily cut your daughter's or even your own hair in only 5 minutes! You may never go to the salon again!
Easy Five-Minute Layered Haircut
This is what my daughter's hair looked like before the haircut:
Here is how to cut your own hair in five minutes: First, wash and condition the hair, then comb it
all into a ponytail on the forehead, securing with a ponytail holder.
Then, making sure the hair is all combed out as
smooth as possible, and using your fingers as a guide, either just cut straight across the ends, or use little
vertical snips to cut across the ends.
Comb out, and you're done!* That's it! Easy! Five minutes! Incredibly beautiful results!
Here are the before and after photos...amazing, isn't it?!:
"after" photo was color edited, but the curls are all natural. The
new layers brought out the curls, with a little spray gel and light
scrunching. (I have not tried this on fine or naturally straight hair yet, and I imagine that it would be a bit trickier on straight hair, as the layers are more noticeable, and you'd need to be extra-careful in combing out the hair well before cutting.**) **Update on straight hair: Please see the wonderful testimonial from a reader on Oct. 2 below.
I will have to admit, that I tried this method out on my daughter first (cowardly, I know) but as soon as I saw the excellent results, I proceeded to cut my own hair the same way. Layers are almost impossible to cut on yourself, but with this easy ponytail method, it was a cinch!
So, have I convinced you? Are you going to try the easy, five-minute layered haircut yourself???
