DIY Haircut

Or, rather, do-it-with-your-friend haircut.

Clare of The Style Diaries enlisted her best friend Cindy (who is not trained as a stylist) to chop off all her hair. The result? Slammin.

You may remember I have DIY haircut fantasies a la Patti Smith. Or Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe. For now, there's no way I'm letting go of Alexis. But maybe I'll train H when we run off to Barcelona or Berlin or wherever.

  1. my dad cuts my mom's hair. it's maybe the most entertaining thing in the world. he just puts it in a pony tail and chops. it turns out amazingly well.

    *my mother is a very trusting woman.

  4. diy is awesome. i used to chop my hair myself. sometimes, sans mirror. that only works if you don't mind some asymmetry, of course.

    but i've gotten hair-finicky in my old age.

    my last haircut was done spontaneous and naked on a balcony by a friend who is a hairdresser, and it was the best one ive ever had!

  7. my stylist is expensive as shit, but i love him to death. we have a 'vision'. and 'agreements'. that is to say, if i storm in PANICKING about how my hair MUST GO, he will sit me down and give me a firm talking to. he's in the 'hood so i can't cheat on him... even with my own hand.
