I am going to start off with the explanation why I am embarking on this journey. My son is 5 1/2 he looks older because of his height, however he has sensory issues. He hates, and I repeats, HATES haircuts. He screams because it tickles, thus we get a snot/hair covered face and it is so embarrassing because you'd think he was being murdered! He is now at an age where the stylist seems less than amused and understanding with struggles of giving this haircut. I live in a small town with few options and my usual lady that is the only one who can be "gentle" with him works hair part time and been busy. So till she is available and as a back up plan I've been thinking about learning how to do it myself.
Now my sister in law is a hair dresser (who lives way out of state) and is giving me a hard time about this, so I decided to have a little fun. Before and after pictures, I must say it didn't turn out as horrible as she said it would! lol *wink* I have room for improvement - styling to understand but he looks less shaggy. We also had very few tears and NO snot! I would count this as a success and I have some time to study before the next round. :0)
Final assessment room for improvement but not horrible. I see the areas I need to improve.
So work needed on layering but again not bad first time.
Okay so per usual he moved while doing bangs - however I'll tell you there has been a few times that they professional has done worse. Not perfect but out of eyes! Also yes the one side has more volume than the other... see something to research! Shaping/style.
True he looks a little like a monk but better than shaggy. :0) And he is a lot less traumatized.
