When it comes to hair, you could say I'm adventurous. I've had highlights, platinum hair, and a perm. I've chopped it all off, and I've let it all grow out only to chop it off all over again. I figure hair grows back, so why no take a few risks with it along the way, right? Occasionally, however, my adventurous spirit can get me into major trouble. Especially when I think I'm a professional stylist and start snipping my hair myself. There are a few common haircut mistakes to avoid, and in order to steer myself (and you) clear of these mistakes, I took to the land o' beauty and spoke with hairstylist Anthony King.
From bad do it yourself cuts to disastrous over-processed hair, King says there's nothing stylists haven't seen in their salons. But there are a few common mistakes that people make that wind up damaging hair and style in the long run. "They're easy to fix," King says. "Just follow a few simple rules of thumb and your hair will thank you for it." The simple rules he suggests really are simple. So, with that in mind, here are a few common haircut mistakes people make and ones you should avoid next time you head to the salon.
