Went to the hairdresser today [R]

I went to the hairdresser for the first time since my first Devacut in October. Unfortunately, there is no devacut specialist in my country, but I managed to find a salon near me that cuts on dry hair. Plus, I saw several reviews from curly haired people praising it.

Although I told the hairdresser that I wanted to keep the length since I'm trying to grow it out and she agreed, she actually cut more than 10cm (about 4 inches). I'm so mad about it, it's going to take me forever to grow it out again. Except for one ringlet she left for some reason, which now sticks out from the rest of my hair.

I was also kinda annoyed after the cut, because she raked through my hair repeatedly either with her fingers or a comb and didn't style it back afterwards. When I told her it looked kinda crazy (and of course frizzy as hell) she dismissed me and more or less told me that I was lucky because if she had combed it through, it would have looked like an afro. Thanks I guess?!

This finally convinced me that I should buy a good pair of scissors and cut my own hair from now on.

Decent quality scissors for sub $50? [R]

Hello!

I have curly hair and there are no salons in my area that specialize in curly hair (they always just straighten it then cut it as if it were straight hair which messes up curl structure), so I've been cutting my own hair following the devacut method (basically cut each curl individually following the curl structure) and have had great success with it. I know this sub is probably anti self hair cutting but IME it's been totally fine, no one notices if curly hair isn't all the same length lol. Anyway, I'm looking for a decent pair of scissors that wont break the bank or my hair, any recommendations?

$16 and I've used them in my shop for long stretches when my shears were getting sharpened. Great for the infrequent use you'll give them. When they're dull, toss them and get another pair.

Recommend Shears? [R]

So my school's kit came with the shittiest shears ever. Got any recommendations for reasonably priced shears?

Honestly since you're in school I would recommend getting a cheap set. My school set came with shitty shitty terrible shears as well, so I ordered a set from Equinox on amazon for $30 and they're fine. If you screw them up you're not out a lot of money. If someone walks off with them you don't have to worry about it. If another person in the school forgets his shears and grabs yours you don't have to worry about it.

Hattori Hanzo shears are great, but they're professional shears, not student shears.

I love my high fade side comb and hard part but my hair grows so damn fast! Advice? [R]

The title pretty much says it all. I need my haircut pretty much every two weeks before it grows out of control.

I have very thick and wavy hair, so I keep it really short on the side and only let the front grow, so that I can use those curls to my advantage to push over the pomp/side comb look. It's a good look for me.

Problem is that I need the part touched up every couple of days or it grows in completely. Depending on the clippers being used, it can even fill in the same day.

Is it generally ill advised to try to maintain this myself? I've considered getting a safety straight razor to do at home, but I'm super hesitant. Is this a terrible idea? Is there a DIY video somewhere on the internet that I haven't found for maintaining a clean looking part?

I would get an electric razor with guides. They go as short as 1/16 of an inch, so you should be able to at least do some maintenance. I am a woman with undershaved hair (the back of my neck is shaved under my long hair, about 2 inches up), and I have to redo it every 2 weeks as well, because my hair grows so quickly. I also cut my husband's hair and my hair because of our financial situation. I have gotten very good at it, and really, most of cutting hair is about blending. Look up some YouTube videos and you can learn a lot. I learned how to do my own layers and bangs, and I bought some professional shears on Amazon for 15 dollars. They are higher rated than the 100 dollar German professional shears, I will link below. You will probably never be good enough to replace a professional cut, unless you go to cosmetology school yourself. However, I see no issue in a little upkeep as long as your stylist approves. I bet you could even ask them to help you learn to touch it up if you ask nicely and are a good tipper when you do go in.

Here is a link to those amazing shears. Be sure to watch some youtube videos for how to adjust, clean, and maintain them. I hope I have been helpful!

Edit: I forgot to tell you to keep in mind that no matter what happens, hair grows--and what luck, yours does so very quickly! I have messed up my own hair before and it becomes unnoticeable in a week or so, which is nothing in the grand scheme of things. So, if you mess up, your new mantra shall be, "Hair grows." :-)

Mrrrrowwwwwwww.

I was going to post a totally different thing today. I was on holidays all last week and am SO scared to go back to work and weigh myself today (I don't have a scale at home, but do at work.) I've been eating like shit since I haven't had anything to keep me distracted for most of the as like usual, and it sucked and I'm scared.

I also haven't had much time to check this sub since I haven't had really any alone time, and catching up today just made me so sad. I completely understand the self-loathing and body-shame and disgust, but it makes me so, so sad to see people on here say they feel like they don't deserve happiness in one form or another.

I hate my body. I am fat and jiggly and all the worst things a human can be aesthetically. I also think I'm annoying and mildly narcissistic and have anxiety that I'm pretty sure pisses people off, a bunch of fun stuff. But I still think I deserve happiness. If I was unsatisfied in my relationship, I'd leave it. I don't let people bully me (anymore.) I stand up for myself and others to street harassers. I like a good dicking and having orgasms. (Even if I usually wear a shirt during sex and there are definitive "don't touch me there" zones.)

YOU PEOPLE DESERVE THAT TOO! No matter WHAT you think you look like. If you're overweight, underweight, average weight for your height, that doesn't make you ANY more or less worthy of happiness.

I just want you all to have one ray of fucking sunshine today. I hope you all work on realising that YES you can talk to that hottie with the hopes of sex. Yup, you are worthy of love. You betcha that you have reasons to be alive and happy that aren't counting calories.

I know a lot of you somewhat define yourselves by your EDs, and in a way I do too. It affects so much of me that it's hard not to. But the actual reality is, the ED is NOT you. It's something that CLINGS to you and feeds off your vitality. You are desires, ambitions, emotions both unstable and stable, passions, intuition. You're so much that isn't an ED.

Anyways. I'm not perfect, obviously. I'm here, too. But God dammit we all deserve to be happy even if it's just with everything except our bodies. And I know a lot of us have a lot of other really terrible shit going on too, and I'm really fucking sorry to anyone that's happening to. But I'll always be your little piece of sunshine telling you that Goddamn you matter and holy fuck yes you deserve to be happy.

I hope everyone has the best Monday they are capable of having. I love you little buttons.

Eh, depends on your hair really. My hair is not fine and not stick-straight, so I'm less concerned that I'll mess it up. Mine is long with long layers, so it's easy for me to section it out (according to layer length), pull the hair forward in front of my shoulders (so I'm not cutting anything I can't see and/or having to use mirrors to see what I'm cutting) and lightly trim. This is pretty much the method I use, although she is intentionally defining more layers whereas I am just maintaining the layers I already have.

Tips -

I trim the lengths my hair when it's dry or mostly dry. Otherwise I'm not able to section out the layers as easily. If I'm cutting my bangs, it's easier to do it when it's wet.

I trim a very small length of hair at a time, because my focus is primarily on split ends. I find that the more you do at a time, the easier it is to cut it unevenly.

I use really, really sharp shears that are solely for hair. Mixing your shears (fabric shears for paper, desk shears for kitchen, kitchen shears for hair, etc.) is sacrilege.

As for tutorials, watch them ALL. Seriously. Even the less helpful ones will add to your knowledge. Watch the more helpful ones several times. Focus in on those that have hair similar to yours. Watch professional hairstylist videos too, not just DIY. Reflect on how they section hair, hold the scissors, how much they snip at a time, etc.

Tips for trimming girlfriend's hair? [R]

I'm going to be trimming my girlfriend's hair this weekend, and it is my first time doing so. Her hair is moderately curly and very thick, but fine-textured, and when pulled out straight it is a little past her shoulder blades in the back. She hasn't cut it in close to two years and the ends are looking pretty dead and uneven at the moment, which is why we are cutting it. I told her I would be more comfortable with cutting it if she straightened it first. Other than that, I kind of don't know where to start and I want to do a decent job, so is there any advice you guys could give me? Thank you!

Also, I know that it would be smarter for her to get it professionally done, and I have tried telling her this several times, but she will not budge, so that is out of the question.

Honestly check out YouTube. I'm sure there are plenty of good tutorials there. This one and this one are both fairly straightforward and will look good if done right.

A few things of note. MAKE SURE you work with wet (rinse thoroughly, then pat to damp with a towel) hair and have the following:

  1. Decent quality scissors designed for cutting hair. They don't have to be the $300 per pair or more kind that real stylists use, but you'll have a hard time with kitchen scissors.

  2. A good comb like this one.

  3. Sectioning clips. If you're working with long hair, I'd suggest these.

  4. A spray bottle.

  5. You may want a cape for cleanliness purposes, but it's by no means necessary.

General tips

  1. Work with clean, conditioned hair. A good way to do this is cut it just after she's gotten out of the shower.

  2. Make your sections straight and clean. It won't be easy if you've not done it before, but it will make some difference.

  3. Take your time.

  4. Cut less than you think your target amount is at first. You can always trim further if needed, but you can't put length back once you've cut it off.

Good luck! Let me know if I can be of more help.
