How to cut long hair

If you are the proud owner of long hair and it seems to you that there is no way to cope with it at home, we will prove that it is not. To trim you need a fine-toothed comb, large hair clips, sharp scissors, and a spray bottle of water. Here's how to cut long hair step by step.

  1. Wash your hair and dry the strands lightly with a towel. Comb along the entire length.
  2. Separate the bottom row of hair (about 1-2 cm), moving the rest of the hair up and securing it with a clip.
  3. Comb through the hair again with a fine-toothed comb.
  4. Trim your hair to the desired length. Repeat this procedure for each row of haircuts. Align the rows to the bottom layer.
  5. Comb your hair thoroughly at each step. If they dry out, use a water spray.
  6. Divide the top layer of hair into a vertical parting in the middle of the head. Trim the strands to align with the rest of the hair.
  7. It is recommended to cut the side strands at a slight angle. The difference with the rest of the length should be about 1 cm.
  8. Now your long hair is in a straight cut, slightly curling around the edges. This shape gives a well-groomed look.

How to cut medium hair

For medium-length hair, a cascade (or ladder) haircut is perfect. This hairstyle has become a hallmark of Jennifer Aniston and still does not go out of style. We will tell you step by step how to cut your medium hair in a cascade.

  1. Wash your hair with shampoo, conditioner or mask. Rinse off the care and comb the strands thoroughly.
  2. Use a comb to divide your hair into horizontal layers a few centimeters wide. Secure each of them with clamps.
  3. Comb the front layer in front, pull the strands down so they are perpendicular to the floor. Trim them so that the tips are at the level of your nose. This will be the shortest layer.
  4. Alternately, strand by strand, comb your hair forward and trim using the same algorithm. Comb the second layer over the first and cut so that it is slightly longer than the first.
  5. The difference in the length of the layers determines the shape of the future hairstyle. If it is small, the transitions will be smooth, if it is large, the haircut will look more voluminous.
