I am NOT a trained hairstylist...I do not have formal training in cutting hair. I have watched a lot of hair cuts and I have asked about the techniques here and there.
I have had some success in cutting people's hair, not people who want to have tremendous haircuts but just want it trimmed up or whatever.
I do cut my 2.5 year-old's hair. He has this sweet straight down to the eyes cut with some fringe in the back below his ears.
Today I learned a great technique...he put on his sun glasses and I thought..."Protection from the sharp scissors," because I have to cut his bangs right across his forehead. So I grabbed him and my scissors and went outside to cut cut cut.
I was far less nervous and it came out wonderful this time... he looks adorable.
