Before we dive in, let's be clear: Hair cutting is best left to the experts. There are a lot of things that can go wrong when you go rogue with a pair of scissors, and we recommend making an appointment with a licensed hair stylist if you're looking to make a big change. But if you need a quick bang trim or you have an out-of-control split end situation, use these instructional videos as inspiration for an at-home haircut. And if things go awry, seek comfort in these all-too-relatable feelings about a growing out a bad haircut.
The first rule: Put down the kitchen scissors. Yes, they work great when it comes to chopping up your chicken, but they could potentially give you even more split ends (plus, gross — those scissors have touched your food!). Stick with a trusty pair of styling shears, like from Tweezerman.
