cut own hair

i understand why people are hesitant to cut their own hair like duh i get it but i am much happier with my haircuts now than whenever i went to a hairdresser… like it’s just hair it grows back and with your own scissors you can alter and correct the style as it grows and really get to know your own hair and what looks good. i’ve been cutting my own hair for a few months now and i’m only improving, it was scary but easy, and gives me so much control. like the “what the fuck do i tell the hairdresser” feeling is not there it’s like i’m going in with an undefined goal and we’ll figure it out as we get there. very freeing highly recommend it

“I had to do this hair cut on this lady, and she was so rude. She first told me that I was too small and needed to gain weight. I was already self conscious after that. Then during, she wanted me to trim her bangs, so while I was doing it, she said, ‘You’re doing it wrong.’ This woman took my sheers from me, cut her own hair, might I add it was very uneven, so I offered to fix it but she got even more mad. I only spent every day for the past five years doing this, but sure, you watched one video on how to cut bangs wrong,so you know more than me. Of course. That’s exactly how it works.” She said, venting to the person. “Anyway, that was my day, how was yours?” 

Make The Cut

Last year we saw a massive influx of celebrities and bloggers all making the decision to take off a few inches of hair. Emma Watson and Taylor Swift had been one of the first celebs to start the trend before it was taken on by many other girls, including YouTuber Zoella. All have taken on the new hairstyle known as the ‘long bob’, but why has this style been so loved?

Mary Shelley’s dressing case

Shelley kept relics of the ones she loved—collecting their hair in folded paper packets and treasuring the objects they used daily. Some of these are still in this case, such as this packet with Byron’s hair. The bracelet pictured here was made from Shelley’s own hair, cut from her corpse. Not here is Percy Bysshe Shelley’s heart, which Edward Trelawny claims he snatched from the fire cremating P.B. Shelley’s remains on the beach at Viareggio. According to family lore, the heart was given to Mary, who stored it in a copy of Adonais, the elegy Percy Bysshe wrote on the death of Keats. Some say she kept this book in her portable desk. I don’t know where her portable desk is, but the heart is said to have been buried with their son and the copy of Adonais is at the Bodleian, as is this dressing case.
