Do you do your own hair?

I got to thinking and I was curious if there was any body else on here that does their own hair? By that I mean do you cut your own hair? Do you color your own hair? Or do you go to the salon.

I can and i do cut my own hair. We were living on a budget and wanting to save money so i bought a book showing how to cut hair. Getting volunteers was a bit hard at first lol!. I only do my own hair now because my hands are arthrytic. Take care Amazing_Grace.

I really do not have the patience do do my own hair. I dont even know how to blow dry it. I end up with a frizz bomb. So its always a trip to the hairdresser for me!

I dye my own hair if I feel like it but I don't cut it my self. I only have one hairstylist I'd like to go to for my hair.

Well, apart from cutting my hair, I do my hair of my own. I colour, shampoo my hair myself but go to a saloon for a hair cut.

HAHAHAHAHA, Let me tell you that I only tried coloring my own hair once. My husband would prefer to give me the $85 to color& cut than to have to re-paint the bathroom. You should have seen the mess I made!!!! hahahahaha. I laugh everytime I remember. My husband didn't laugh. still doesn't. Oh Well. As you can see, yes, I have a hair dresser.

I've never cut my own hair -- I don't trust myself that much LOL At one time, I worked for a major haircolor company and they were the first to color my hair... I went to work with it one color and came home with it completely different! What a hoot. When they found out that I had never applied anything in my hair (and I was in my 30's), they wanted to use me as a bit of a guinea pig for a new line of product. It was only a temporary color so I thought it would be fun. I used to color my own hair at home when I was using a semi-permanent, wash in product. Now that I'm doing permanent color, I have it done by my hairdresser. I actually like having it done at the salon because it's one of the only times that I sit down and relax for a couple of hours and do something just for me :)

I must need a break from the intenet because I hit your page and saw the title of this post and thought it said, "Do you own your own hair" Yes, go ahead, have a laugh. I don't cut my own hair but I put streaks in it from time to time. I can't even cut paper straight without having a line to work with so I doubt I'd be any good at cutting hair.

I don't blame you. I was scared the first time I cut mine as well. But practice makes perfect.

I color my own hair. I can't cut it, so I do go to the salon for that. I can cut hair, but it's kinda hard to do my own. I think that if i tried, I would have hair that was very uneven. I have permed my own hair before, but that takes forever because I have to make sure that I have the rollers postioned right.

I will usually go to the salon to have my hair cut. If not I'll have my sister or cousin cut it for me. My hair is its natural brown color. So, I don't have to worry about the fake color either.

I do my own hairstyle with the help of my partner. I love to design my own hairstyle. And she usually helps me through cutting my hair the way I like it to be. Sounds funny but true.

Going to salons now are getting expensive. I only go to salons if i want my hair to get trimmed, or sometimes get a new look and also for a hair and make-up if i will be attending some special occasions. Also for a foot spa together with a pedicure. Sometimes I cut my bangs. I usually dye my hair by myself. Sometimes I do my own hair treatments. It is easy. Sometimes i cut my daughter's hair. Or shave my husband's hair. If only I can trim the back of my hair I will do it, but of course it is hard.We have to save money sometimes, if we can do it why not. Someday we will perfect it.
