I don't know how to post videos here (Edit: Oh! I guess I do! lol), but this girl is brilliant and I wanted to share her DIY wisdom! I don't normally post in this forum, but this is too cool not to pass along.

I just tried cutting my very thick and long hair using this rubber band and kitchen shears method, and I love how my hair turned out. I love things like this that actually work, that save you time and money!

I literally got out of the shower, towel-dried my hair a bit so it wasn't dripping, flipped my head over, combed my hair out, put the rubber band in it (I put mine right where my part begins - I normally part my hair on the side), then I pulled the rubber band out about 7 inches (I could have gone shorter, but I like longer layers), then I chopped off all the rest of my hair. A big chunk of hair fell into the wastebasket! Took out the band, blow-dried, and my hair looks like I just spent gobs of money and too much of my time at some salon somewhere. I've actually paid over a hundred dollars at an Aveda salon for a haircut just like this. (I got a color that time as well.)

Literally took less than 5 minutes. And it's free.

I tipped myself with a home pedi, too!

Now all I need is one of those reiki massage chairs...

I love the DIYbeauty- thanks for posting!!

DANG that was fast. I angle my edges,then angle once more above that line, v cut them a bit and then all backs twist to each shoulder blade and cut straight, then even it up. Its not that hard, but not as easy as hers!! She's cute.

I've used that method and also recommend the Crea Clip. That gave me a professional looking cut!
