4 Mistakes To Avoid Before Cutting Your Hair



Extreme low-cut for women is not a common thing so when a lady/woman steps out with a close to bald head, eyebrows are raised. I had a major trim recently as you can tell from the picture in the post and I have gotten a lot of reactions.

Friends have asked me what prompted this hair style, some asked if I’m going through a phase and want to talk about it , someone even asked if it was boyfriend drama that prompted this ( I couldn’t stop laughing). As much as people have reacted badly and yelled some people have said “wow! You must be brave”.

A few ladies have told me how they want to cut their hair and asked for my thoughts- it’s your hair, I can’t tell you what to do or what not to do. In this post, I’m sharing a few things to look out for, mistakes to avoid before you cut your hair.

The change from a haircut is quite drastic, your jawline becomes more obvious or in my case your cheeks , your shoulder are out in the open and I won’t deny you will become extra self conscious as people might stare in public( no joke). I also recommend you find hairstyle inspirations and also ladies you can relate to.

One question I have had to answer over and over again is ” but Damie why?” and I answer “I just felt like”. Although my reason for this choice of hairstyle is a lot deeper than that. You need to understand exactly why you want to cut your hair. If the reason seems valid enough to you….then welcome to the team.

I have cut my hair more times that I have had a weave on, so I pretty much know that a regular haircut will suit me. If you are doing this for the first time, I recommend you do a comprehensive research to know your face shape and also the type of haircuts that will suit your face shape. Finally, search for ladies on low-cut with similar face shape as yours to have an idea of what the hairstyle will look like on you.

Earlier this year, I had a similar haircut to the one I have on now I recorded the journey in this video and also published a blog post on 7 reasons you should shave your head. The barber that cut my hair in Jos came highly recommended by ladies and he pretty much did a good job.

This haircut I have on is not the best at all, he came highly recommended by guys so he gave me a guy cut. It’s not the best but I’m rocking it.
