Hey, do you cut your own hair? Cuz I found a guy on youtube who does that and I'm wondering if I should try learning that.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIqeVeG78Xc

That disconnected undercut is /fa/ggot tier. Don't do it, and will probably take you a lot longer to do and most likely you will fuck it up.
Get it properly cut and faded.
>>
You can fuck up your hair if you do it for first time. Maybe just stick to your barber. This guy already have some good skills
>>

>>9154790
I am thinking about just trimming and fading my sides and back following his tutorial for begginers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydIYIjlfZQw
>>
>>9154799
Stop being poor and scared of barbers.
PS: his fade is terrible
>>
Damn this guy have some nice content. Haven't seen him before.
>>
Disconnected undercuts is boring find something new.
>>
>>9154799
I would say try it if you want it so much. You have nothing to loose and it seems like it's quite easy. Hair will grow back and you can always buzz shave like I do.
>>
>>9154853
buzzcuts ftw
>>
dont do it.trust me i fucked my hair up really bad and am trying to grow it back out atm.
>>
I just did my hair a couple of hours ago.. It really depends on your style how hard it is.. Short sides long top, is fairly easy.
I usually go to the barber and after a weeks I trim the sides and back so it feels fresh again.. repeat a few times and then the barber again.. I dont touch the hair on top,, dont want to risk that yet.

Watching those youtube videos helps also.. Start slow.. better to trim 5 times than too much at once
>>
I do this about every third week. Simple and conservative

24 mm on top
21 mm on sides
12 mm at the bottom
Then do 15 mm between 21 mm and 12 mm to even it out
>>
>>9154840

I would say this video is really useful. It's really good for those who just want to look fresh and still not time for barber.
>>
>>9154790
how else do you fucking learn? i do a fade on my sides and back and looks just like a barber would do only it saves me $15 every two weeks
>>
>>9156238
I agree man. No one is born with perfect skills and everyone of us have to learn everything from the zero. Hair grows back but once you make a mistake it becomes a lesson for you and won't fail again at the same step - you will move forward.
>>
>>9156282
dis nigga gets it, i've done it maybe a dozen times and its no where near perfect but it also doesn't look like shit, also there is a sense of pride when someone compliments it
>>
Can a disconnected undercut work if you have voluminous straight hair?
>>
>>9154755
Just recently found this guy. He's awesome my new favorite youtuber.
>>
>>9156456
What's his name/ youtube name?
>>
>>9156456
Meant the guy in the pic, but if not, kay
>>
I do cut my own hair because I'm the only person who knows EXACTLY what I want.

The only issue is getting the back, and so I occasionally go to a barber and get the back/sides done.

honestly, if you're not cutting your own hair then idk wtf youre doin

>Hey, do you cut your own hair?

Yes, I had a HY. When everyone and their mother had it, I got a buzzcut and 3 months later just shaved off my hair.

I didn't like the completely shaved look, so now I have something similar to picture related. Completely shaved around the top and 1mm stubble at the top. I'm 21 and people do perceive you as more aggressive, but I've also had people tell me they liked the shaved-off hair.
>>
>>9156818
awesome
>>
>>9156818
Is it faded or does it look like a Jew cap?
>>
I have tried a few times but this guy have awesome skills. I can't compare to him.
>>
It's relatively easy to do. Just work slowly and dont expect godlike results first time. Been doing it for like 5 years now.
>>
yes i do. first time i did it was meh. practice makes perfect. start with just the sides and the back. you might need some help for the back, so ask a relative. if your dad makes typical dad jokes, don't let him do it. he will goof it up on purpose.
>>
>>9156090
Used this video as a guide and done pretty well. Really useful for begginers.

This one is my favorite by him.

>>9154755

I cut my own hair for 5 years now. Just try it. Those youtube tutorials will be useful for your start but later you will be able to do whatever you want with your hair. You just have to learn the basics and practice.

any of you guys have pics of your hair after cutting it. not convinced anyone can actually do a decent job on their own hair

Yeah I would like to see some results too. That gentlehair guy seems more like a pro and I don't really think that anyone could do that.

Go for it. The undercut is the easiest to cut yourself, besides buzz cuts or whatever. I have been keeping up and cleaning my sides for a few months now in between normal haircuts. The only advice is get a friend you trust to do the edging in the back. It isn't hard to clean the edges on your side yourself either but the back is of course the hardest.

do you cut your top?

Scissors?

yeah

I am doing something similar to this video of him:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFOWJD7cmVA
>>
>>9161426
is it hard?
>>
>>9161592
nope i just grab parts and hack at it its easier than the sides
>>
>>9161711
What products?
>>
>>9161734
dont usually use any
>>
>>9161711
do you use thinning scissors?
>>
I used to have my hair shaved on the sides and back until about a year ago, when it started to get overly popular the I started shaving just the sides at home so I have a lazy Mohawk
>>
>>9162448
when's your new album coming out skrillex
>>
>>9162588
Both sides are shaved /fa/ggot. But getting called a shitty electronic "music" producer is refreshing since the 1975 has become more popular I've been called Matt Healy wannabe way to fucking much
>>
>>9162448
Wtf's in your lip?
>>
>>9154799
Fade seems a bit riskier than an undercut. A $10 haircut will turn out better than doing it yourself
>>
>>9162663
The scar or the acne that comes and goes on the edge of my lip?
>>
Tried giving myself a military fade once...I fucked up and ended up buzzing my head in a state of panic, rage and regret.

Don't do it unless you don't mind going bald or reallly short in the event that you mess up.

Yes I do. It's not that hard.
>>
>>9163756
how long you do it?
>>
>>9162058
hey sorry went to sleep

i use a weird method for thinning my hair. I take a small section of hair, twist it round fairly tight and cut into it gently.
>>
>>9163793
you cut it horizontally or vertically?
>>
how come no one has posted based mike yet
this thread is so full of newfags

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zauHUVzUDy8
>>
>>9163813
horizontally, it's mainly just a way of getting a randomized selection of strands. there are definitely better ways of doing it but im a moron
>>
>>9163814
Why he cuts his top so short just leaving bangs so long? Looks weird.
>>
>>9163816
thanks i'll try that
>>
>>9154755
I used a few of those youtube tutorials and my hircut came out pretty good.

Oh man even Skrillex cuts his own hair. Gotta try that

How to shave your back while cutting your own hair? It seems so hard to do it by yourself
>>
>>9165524

By the feeling of the comb/guard going up the back of your head

Make multiple passes until you don't hear anything being cut

You can also try using two mirrors but that's a bit awkward
>>
>>9165660
Why two mirros is awkward? Is it very hard used to inverse view?
>>
>>9163814
Was just about to say this.
Mike's video isn't even old holy shit, how many faggots have come here just to ask how to into /fa/. This board gets worse every year.
>>9164113
It actually probably looks like shit. Like your outfit.

really nice

>>9154755
I remember when I tried to cut my own hair, I fucked up so much that I had to shave my whole head bald(not number 1 or number 2). I haven't seen any of those tutorials, I was just standing in front of the mirror and decided to cut my own hair for no reason, just because I was bored. I was probably drunk or high, I don't even remember everything. A lot of people thought that I got cancer or something. It was 5 years ago and since that day I never had a razor in my hands. I'm scared of them.
>>
>>9169787
You're stupid as fuck.
>I'm just going to do something I have no skill in.
>>
using a electric razor with guards to do your sides and back is easy as hell but i'm too scared to use scissors to cut my top
>>
>>9171633
I was stupid and I don't know what was I thinking... And I forgot to add guards... And I started shaving from the back not even looking at mirror. After that it was the worst week of my life...
>>
>>9171821
wtf?
>>
>>9169787
srs?
>>
>>9156818
I'm looking to get a similar cut but with sides totally shaven, don't know how to call it, anybody got pictures?
>>
>>9173232
maybe high and tight?
>>
>>9160783
this is a bit aggressive
>>
>>9156818
man i would totally do this
i hate having to deal with hair
having to style it and having to buy product and having to worry about it looking like shit if i don't get to shower that morning

too bad i have a terrible profile and just lack the aesthetics for a buzz

do you feel like posting a pic?
>>
>>9162448
hair looks good
shame about your lack of lips, tho

How you did that Skrillex hair? Tutorial pls

>>9154755
How do I make my hair less dense?

I want to have a bit longer hair, but it's just too damn dense and don't know how to reduce the amount of hair while keeping its length.
>>
>>9173535
idk what that means
>>
>>9163793
Hahaha that's an old school asian barber method.
>>
>>9175860
Nice, I'm lowkey asian hair guru
>>
>>9159856
I might actually try this, I got some clippers about a month ago and have only used them on my face

if u really want to cut ur own hair u definitely should try. u might make mistakes at first so dont do it when a big event is close. practice makes perfect and its really fun. if u dont like it in the long run, then go back to ur barber and at least u tried
