This post is two days late but at least it’s not clickbait. This is a quick life update, which I haven’t done in awhile…
When the global lockdown first started, everyone started baking bread. Then people discovered Tiktok. Along the way, people started cutting their own hair. I also didn’t want to go to a salon, where the risk of getting COVID-19 must be a bit higher for obvious reasons. So here we are.
I watched several videos and just went with it.
My advice is to be decisive.
Also, use a sharp pair of scissors. I have very thick hair. You don’t know frustration until you try hacking off your own hair in uneven batches thanks to unfortunately blunt blades.
Confidence is key! I ended up cutting off around 11 inches. Perfect for the muggy weather.
I’ll probably be dressing myself up just to style and appreciate my new DIY haircut. I guess I also need to try out the many skincare/makeup products I bought during the last major sale on Lazada. :)

I used to be a hairdresser for six years and I can attest to having sharp scissors. General purpose scissors are never ever sharp enough, so it’s worth getting an entry-level pair of scissors meant for cutting hair. Good on you for the self-makeover! Many hairdressers I know won’t even dare do it. Thanks for sharing!
