For those who trim their own hair....Do you do it in sections (trim the most underlayer first and then let some hair down and trim again, and so on ~ the way hairdressers do) or do you simply trim straight across the back with all your hair down. I hope that made sense! :oops:

Feye has very good instructions (with pics) on how to trim your hair:
I just make two cuts. One each side. I dont do it like hairdressers do-that would be very hard to do yourself I think.

Cheers Katrine, thanks for the link! I remember Feye posting some instructions once upon a time. Unfortunately, my hair is still too short to trim myself...I was going to get my sis (BTW, you too share the same name! ~ it's even spelt with a "K") to do it for me...which ever way is the best and most proper.

What a great name your sister has ;)
Okay I know nothing about how others should trim to get it even. I have tried to trim my mothers hair with no good results.

My SO trimmed my hair for me using Feye's method (doing a blunt cut, not a U) and it worked out very well. He just slid a scrunchie down the length of my ponytail to the where it needed to be cut and cut that bit off all at once. Due to the thickness of my hair and the dullness of the shears (I know better now!), it wasn't perfectly even done that way, but a few snips here and there after it was combed out and it was perfect 8)
Hope your trim turns out well!

For very fine hair like my own, I trim in a ponytail, straight across the ends. When I've done friends' hair which is thicker, I comb it loose down their back and then trim across in one go (this is how my GM stylist has always trimmed my hair too). I've never done the hairdressers layering/sectioning thing, and I've always had great results.
