Non-Cheapskate Reasons to Cut and Style Your Own Hair
Author Avatar


Malaysians are really lucky as we’re one of those places on earth where it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to get your hair styled and cut. Your hair is definitely a very important part of your appearance as messy and unkempt hair give out the impression that you’re irresponsible or disorganized as a person.

In this age where we can easily find instructions to do almost anything, from online articles and videos to apps that help with step-by-step guidelines, it really is very simple to pull off basic hairdressing techniques, including curling, straightening, colouring and trimming.

Here are some reasons why you should consider being your own hairdresser:

You Have More Control

Have you ever sat in your barber or hair stylists’ seat and struggled to communicate what you wanted for your hair, only to be completely disappointed at the final result? Well you’re not alone and many people find themselves in a similar dilemma. The best solution for this is of course to start styling your own hair and experimenting with different styles to see what’s good for you.

Non-Cheapskate Reasons to Cut and Style Your Own Hair

You Get to Groom Your Own Hair on the go

If you’re the type that travels often for work or are just too busy to visit a hair salon, learning how to trim your own hair will be extremely convenient, provided that you maintain a simple hairstyle, like a short buzzcut, a clean schoolboy cut, or even an entirely bald pate.

You Get to Express Yourself

If you want to go bald on only half of your head, but you can’t find a local hairdresser who knows how to do it, or you want to dye your hair shocking pink but your stylist just doesn’t have the colour, then it’s time to takes things into your own hands. Being your own stylist gives you the freedom to do whatever you want to stand out from the crowd and be yourself.

You Don’t Have to Get Harassed into Buying More Stuff

If you’re one of those people that dislike being cajoled into buying more hair care products than you actually need every time you visit the hair stylist, then you can skip these annoying hair care propaganda sessions. Treat your hair in the quiet and comfort of your own home, without the frustration of having to figure out how to politely turn your hairdresser down without being rude.

You Get to Choose Your Own Hair Products

Whether it’s hair dye, hair treatment cream, hair straightening cream or shampoo, you can choose your own brands and types if you treat your own hair. This way, you can avoid strong chemicals that may harm your scalp and go for something milder and more natural.

There are plenty of reasons to do your own hair and it a simple pair of scissors is the easiest way to start. All this, on top of the savings you’ll accumulate from not going to the hairdressers is why we think learning to be your own hairdresser is definitely a worthwhile endeavour.
