For most of my life I  had those blunt-strait across bangs, with super-long hair. It was down to my waist for quite awhile. But I started trimming my bangs and the rest of my hair myself when I went to college (my aunt used to do it for me). Then I was so sick of my bangs I grew them out my sophomore year of college (riiight about the time the pin-up look was coming around and it was actually cool - guh.) Anyways, now that I'm 23 I decided It's about time for something different than a all-one-length-past-the-shoulders cut. I layered my hair myself with a little trick I discovered after the 'put your hair in a ponytail and make a clean cut' deal didn't work out quite so well. Anyways, I'll have to post a couple pictures tomorrow to show you how I did it.

I just feel so out of place in a beauty salon...the few times I've gone, they NEVER listen.  Angry

But if all else fails-beauty colleges are a nice way to go. The one in my town gives haircuts for less than $5

Agh, I feel the pain of not having hairdressers listen. I had hair that was almost down to my butt before I went and got it cut. I asked for it to be layered and shorter because the long hair just weighed me down being my hair is fine and it needed a little oomph. The first time I went I loved the results. The second time I went in for a trim, she cut it even shorter than before, and added bangs so I looked like a modern Cleopatra. I hated it, and never went back.
So now, I just re-layer my own hair, and trim my own bangs. Currently I'm trying to grow my hair out to a little bit past my shoulder, and also grow the annoying bangs out.

This is how I did my face-framing layers



My hair started out below my shoulders and I just cut a little at a time to figure out what worked best. I'd advise you to do the same thing...babysteps. But I like it a lot, and no one believes I cut it myself Smiley

Thanks for the tip, I just cut my hair for the first time, and it turned out okay, but I couldn't get the front layers right.  This will help a lot.
Oh and your hair looks awesome.  I believe you cut it yourself  Wink

I've been cutting my own hair for years, and I cut my mom's hair.  My hair is pretty much long and straight with some layers, I trim it up but I usually don't take a lot off.

You've just got to try it a couple times, little by little and see how it turns out.
