When you become a mother, you all develop skills you never thought you’d think of trying – and actually get really good at it.
Cutting your child’s hair could be one of those things! In this post, we are happy to share with you some tips on how to do it at home. Here are step-by-step instructions for doing a girl’s haircut at home. You might be surprised how professional you are!
Make a haircut for a little girl at home
Here’s what you need before you start
- Invest in a good pair of hair cutting scissors. The best options have tapered blades and are 5 to 6 inches long.
- Never use regular nail clippers or scissors, as this will result in a crooked cut.)
- dress or robe
- Newspapers, trash bags, or a plastic floor mat for easier cleaning
- A wide-tooth and fine-toothed comb (but you can use one if you don’t have both)
- water spray bottle
- few pliers
Cover your child in a technical robe or an old T-shirt, and place him on a chair with a book or a toy in his hand.
While the hair is dry, decide how long you want to cut (hair is always longer when wet)
Steps to cut the bangs for your daughter at home
Start with bangs
- Step 1: Using a wide-tooth comb, part hair down the middle
- Step 2: Gently spray hair with water and comb to remove tangles
- Step 3: Measure along the section about one inch from the hairline and use the fine-toothed comb to draw a line from this point from the hairline to the outer edge of the eyebrow, forming a triangle-shaped hair section (see photo #1)
- Cut this part from the rest and repeat on the other side of the room. Clip the rest of the hair away from these two sections of the bangs. If your child’s hair is fine, you may want to start with a half inch of the hairline rather than a full inch.
- Step 4: Comb both sections of hair down in front of the face.
- Step 5: With your fingers, separate the middle thumb from the bangs and secure it toward the nose between the pointer and middle finger just below the eyebrows. Don’t twist it. Make sure to hold it loosely, not too tight, or it will be too short after you cut it. Use the remaining fingers to act as a guard behind the tuft of hair (along the forehead), as protection in case she makes sudden movements, tell the child to close his eyes, so that no hair will fall off from him. With the other hand, hold the scissors straight and cut just below your fingers.
- Step 6: Repeat this process with the fringe section on either side of the center section, using the length of the center section as a guide. Make sure to pull the hair down, not at an angle toward the center, or else you’ll end up with curved bangs.
- Step 7: Evaluate the bangs after they dry and touch up if necessary
Note: For thinner bangs, after cutting using the instructions above, hold the bangs about 1 inch from the ends between your pointer and middle finger. On the other hand, hold the scissors perpendicular to the edge of the hair and use the ends only to cut small V-shaped sections about 1/8 inch into the bangs. This will make it look a bit rough.
Now for the shave!
Baby girl haircut steps at home
These instructions are suitable for straight, wavy or curly hair with an overall length.
Step 1: Spray and comb hair to detangle. Hair part as shown. The lower sections will serve as your guide. Once the hair is cut to the length you want, you will match all the other section lengths to it.
Step 2: Make sure the child is looking down, his eyes are on his lap, and his chin is slightly down. This is especially important for girls with long hair. This will ensure the best cutting angle and prevent the bottom layer from being longer than the top layer. Keeping her head in one position all the time will ensure an even cut. Comb a small section of hair at the parting (about an inch wide) and secure it between your pointer and middle finger above the length you want to remove. Hold the scissors straight with the hair straight, then guide the scissors blades directly under your fingers as you cut.
Step 3: Using the length of this middle section as a guide, work on both sides, separating and clipping small sections of hair the same way so they all match the length of the first section.
Step 4: Once you have finished cutting the two bottom sections, a 1-inch section of hair along the bottom of the sections is still in sections and continue cutting in the same manner, a 1-inch section in a 1-inch section, until all of the hair has been clipped. For each new section, comb through the hair and then cut it to match the length of the first section. Comb the side sections toward the floor, not behind the ears, and match the length of the back sections.
Note: If you cut curly hair, watch out for frizz! Curly hair will bounce back much shorter than you expect – up to 3 inches – when cut.
The good news is that the only thing you can count on is that the hair will grow back! If you get it wrong, it doesn’t matter…
good luck .
