It's been a while since I had a haircut and my hair was getting really really long, along with a lot of split ends. I was waiting for my annual visit to home before I could finally chop off my mane. You know how moms can get so unreasonably clingy and possessive about their daughter's hair. Shh don't tell her! 😉
My last haircut was over a year ago, which, on a rainy afternoon, I had done myself (check it out here Fashion Vashion). Thankfully, it wasn't a disaster. This time around, I wanted to add some layers as well. My hair is naturally wavy, unless I dry them in the sun (yeah I find it strange too).
So this is how my hair looked BEFORE the cut.
Looking for DIY hair tricks, I opened Youtube, which in modern world has the answer to all of life's questions. And I found this cool hack.
Frankly, I was completely skeptical at the beginning. I mean who cuts their hair like this. But since I am known to do weird stuffs, I went ahead and followed the steps.

The best thing about this cut is it DOESN'T change the length of your hair. Yeah, that's right. That's like magic... to have some layers without actually changing the length... how awesome is that. Those with long hair will know what I am taking about.
But I still went ahead and snipped off the ends separately.
How I did it: After washing and conditioning, I towel dried my hair. Applied a bit of hair serum and combed them thoroughly. Be gentle while doing so. My hair were still wet when I cut them, that's to make sure they remain straight and not curl.
And this is how it looks now 😀

I love the curls and how it makes my hair look more voluminous. (I wish I had done a better job at combing my hair though🙈) In the above picture I haven't used any styling gel or curler (which you can obviously make out 😝). I only oil my hair with Keo Karpin whenever I feel they have become dry. These days I am into this beachy-wavy look (not that I have a choice), so my messy hair actually works for me. My mom, of course, doesn't agree.
