Raise your hand if at least one boy in your family is rocking a new unplanned hairstyle thanks to Corona and this at stay at home order?! I think we are all looking a little rough around the edges while we aren’t able to make our typical beauty appointments, but I am here to help!!! As many of you know, I went to school for hair, and have done hair for years and years and years. So after a lot of questions and requests, I put together a hands on video tutorial full of tips that will lead to easy success and help you avoid the dreaded Corona Cut!! Check out the video below and then be sure to review a few super helpful tips I’ve included below!
:: TIPS + TRICKS TO REMEMBER ::
:: START LONG
You can always go through and cut more, but once you’ve cut it there is no going back. Start longer than you plan and go from there so you are leaving room for any edits and fixes you need to make. As I mentioned in the video, a #4 is the easiest to start with and get a nice clean blend.
:: ROLL THE CLIPPERS BACK
Out of all the tips and advice I share in the video, this is the number one thing!! I haven’t seen anyone share and it is SO important to getting a good blend! I explain and demonstrate in the video, but be sure to do this step for best results!
:: BE PREPARED WITH DISTRACTIONS
If you are gearing up to cut your kids hair, especially toddlers, be prepared!! Have a show for them to watch and a sucker for them to eat! That way they are distracted and not trying to escape. Having a client that holds still is going to be a LOT easier on you!
