My D.I.Y. ‘Long Bob’ Haircut.

Good Morning to you,

.

And so we start another warm day, although there is not very much blue sky showing at all.

.

Yesterday turned out to be a very good day indeed.

My ‘chancey’ hair experiment went very, very well.

I was ‘Lucky! Lucky! Lucky’ as Kylie would say.

.

I suddenly made up my mind, and warned Big H to be ready to help me when I needed him.

He was a bit unsure about cutting my hair short, so I decided to do it myself and then get him to tidy it up for me afterwards.

.

So …. I began by washing it and giving it a good combing back to make sure the waves were removed.

After that I clipped it all at the back of the neck with a long plastic bag clipper from Ikea …. I chose a white one for maximum visibility using my hand mirror and fixed mirror!

.

As soon as the clip looked to be straight …. at the length I wanted my hair to be at the back ….  I cut along the lower outside edge of the clip, which I had closed about 1″ down from my lowest hair at the nape of my neck.

Once I checked for, and tidied up, the uneven bits (using a hand mirror), I removed the clip again.

.

.

.

I had made sure to clip back my sides vertically behind the ears first because I like to have very long side pieces in order that the haircut does not look like a Darth Vader helmet!

The front sides were satisfyingly long as I had hoped.

.

Big H then trimmed the few longer bits that grow down the neck, until the back was straight.

I gave it a quick dry with the normal hair dryer and followed that with a comb through using my Babyliss hot air brush.

.

I am very pleased with it.

.

Here is a picture of the finished look.

I must say though, that if you also try to save money using a similar method I definitely cannot guarantee what the result will be, and cannot really recommend taking such chances as most hair only grows at about half an inch per month.

You may therefore have to wear a hat for many long and distressing distressing months.

.

I found the process to be quite a scary, yet thrilling, experience because it is very easy to make awful mistakes.

However, my dreadful hair had to be cut, and I thought the plan should work …. and save me hairdressers costs for the rest of my life …. assuming that it does not eventually all fall out!

A bit mad really, as I have often been wrong in the past!!!!

.

Have a good hair day yourself this Wednesday!

LOL,

Jaksie.
