Sticking to the status quo never really works when it comes to hair — it’s just too boring (or dated). At a certain point, the itch to try something different takes over, and you might find yourself pondering a massive change. While we’re fully in support of being brave with a new style, there are certain things you just shouldn’t do to your hair. Make any of these mistakes, and you can be certain you’ll wind up with a horrible hair style.
1. Going the DIY route for a hair cut
We get it, finding the time to schedule an appointment with your hair stylist can be a real struggle. Such a struggle, in fact, you start to think grabbing your kitchen shears for a quick trim is a much more practical approach. But home hair cuts never end well. As Good Housekeeping points out, most of us don’t have the right tools to do it without causing tons of damage, and the results are usually bad enough to demand an emergency trip to the salon anyway. Save yourself the time and money by booking with a professional in the first place.
