Have you ever wanted to change up your hairstyle and create a unique look for yourself? If so, a scene hairstyle may be just what you’re looking for. Scene hairstyles are bold, expressive, and give off a sense of individuality. The best part? You can cut your own scene hairstyle at home and achieve a one-of-a-kind look without breaking the bank.
Before you start:
Before diving into a scene hairstyle, it’s important to consider a few things. Firstly, scene hairstyles require maintenance, so if you’re not prepared for regular trips to the salon or up-keep at home, this may not be for you. Secondly, it’s important to think about the type of scene hairstyle you want. Do you want it to be more subtle or over-the-top? Do you want colourful hair or a more muted tone? Once you have an idea in mind, it’s time to start gathering your tools.
– Hair dye (if desired)
– Hair bleach (if desired)
– Rubber gloves
– Hair cutting scissors
– Thinning shears
– A comb
– Hair clips
Steps to cut your own scene hairstyle:
1. Wash and dry your hair:
Before starting to cut your hair, make sure it’s clean and completely dry. This will make it easier to work with and give you more control when cutting.
2. Part your hair:
Decide where you want your part to be and create it using the comb. If you’re opting for a more subtle scene hairstyle, consider creating a centre part. If you’re going for a more dramatic look, a deep side part may be more suitable.
3. Section your hair:
Using the comb, create a section of hair at the back that is about 2 inches wide and clip it up out of the way. This will be the last section you cut and it ensures your hair is cut at the same length overall.
4. Start cutting:
Using the hair cutting scissors, start with the bottom layer of hair at the back and cut in a straight line across. Work your way up to the top layer, using the first layer as a guide. Be careful not to cut too much hair at once, as this can result in uneven layers.
Once you’ve finished cutting, use the thinning shears to texturize your hair. This helps to add movement and shape to your style.
6. Shape your fringe:
Using the hair cutting scissors, shape and trim your fringe. If you have longer hair, consider adding layers to your fringe to give it more volume.
7. Style your hair:
Now that you’ve cut your hair, it’s time to style it. You can opt for a straight or curly look, depending on your preference. Don’t forget to add hairspray or product to help hold your style in place.
Q: How do I know if a scene hairstyle is right for me?
A: Scene hairstyles are best suited for those who are looking for a bold and unique look. If you’re not afraid of making a statement, a scene hairstyle may be the perfect choice for you.
Q: Can I cut my own hair if I don’t have any experience?
A: While it’s always best to have a professional style your hair, cutting your own hair can be done with patience and practice. Start with small changes and work your way up to a more dramatic style.
Q: Do I need to bleach my hair to achieve a scene hairstyle?
A: Bleaching your hair can help to achieve a more vibrant and colourful scene hairstyle, but it’s not necessary. If you’re happy with your natural hair colour, you can simply cut and style as desired.
Q: How often do I need to visit the salon for up-keep?
A: It’s recommended to visit the salon every 4-6 weeks for a trim and touch-up of your scene hairstyle.
In conclusion, cutting your own scene hairstyle can be a fun and creative way to change up your look. With the right tools, patience and practice, you can achieve a unique style that showcases your individuality. Just remember to consider the type of scene hairstyle you want, gather your tools, and take your time. Happy hairstyling!
