Pam Genio-Bates from Patrick Evan Salon demonstrated on herself how to trim our own hair.

Here are a few of her guidelines:
  • Clip any hair you don't want to cut out of the way

  • Cut less off than you think you should. You can always cut more off, but can't put it back on

  • Use the tip of your scissors to "point cut" into your bangs

  • Use sharp scissors
