Have you ever thought about Cutting Your Family's Hair? I've trimmed my own here and there over the years but since I have trouble cutting wrapping paper in a straight line I wouldn't volunteer to cut someone else's. My mother, on the other hand, has a gift for cutting hair. She cut all of our hair when we were kids. And they weren't even "bowl" haircuts. (For those who have not heard about "bowl" haircuts it is when you put a bowl on your head and mom/dad cuts your hair around the shape of the bowl. Just say NO!)
"Easy To Follow"
When I asked my mom why she liked this book so much that is what she said. It is so "easy to follow". There are many step-by-step directions with photos for each style.
- styles for men, women, girls and boys
- lots of step-by-step photos with written directions
- photos for separating the hair into different sections for cutting
- diagrams to show how to cut hair at different angles
- short, medium or long hair
- one layer or multi-layer
This is the book my mother uses when she cuts my hair now. If you do decide to cut your family's hair, I would also recommend that you choose a scissors designed specifically for cutting hair and that you keep it dedicated to cutting hair only. Cutting paper or using a hair cutting scissors for other tasks will dull the blades faster. Be careful. Hair cutting shears are very sharp.
I read the paperback edition of this book (and interviewed my mother who actually uses it to cut my hair) to write this review. This is a book review. I am not responsible for any decisions/actions you make about cutting hair. You assume all responsibility including, but not limited to, safety and outcomes. Seek the advice of a professional.
