With most states being under lockdown yet again, going to a salon for your monthly hair trims has again been put on hold. But if you’re struggling with dry hair and split ends and are in desperate need of a haircut, then you’re not alone. Turns out, the beautiful singer, Neha Kakkar faced a similar problem too, but instead of letting it get her down, the actress decided to give herself a haircut at home.

And to help everyone who is in a similar situation, Neha uploaded a video wherein she’s cutting her hair and shares some super simple tips and tricks to make this daunting task a lot easier. Even though Neha mentions that she is no expert and is only following everything she’s learnt by watching YouTube videos, the tips and tricks she shares are pretty concise, especially if you’re a beginner. Scroll down for a step-by-step guide on how to cut your hair at home.

Singer Neha Kakkar shows how she cut her hair at home, and it’s perfect for beginners!


Step 01: Neha starts with thoroughly combing her hair with a wide-toothed comb to get rid of any knots and tangles.


Step 02: Next, she creates a centre part and divides her into two equal sections, which she then secures with the help of rubber bands.


Step 03: Next, she takes another hair tie and places them right at the length she plans to chop off. For example, if you want to trim two inches off your hair from the bottom, place the rubber two inches above the hair ends. She encourages you to start with cutting a very small length and gradually increasing it if need be.


Step 04: Next, she takes a sharp pair of scissors and cuts her hair right above the rubber band. She repeats the same process on the other side too.


Step 05: Once this is done, Neha once again combs her hair to see if the length is equal and carefully trims the parts that are not.


She does mention that since she has straight hair, this task was relatively hassle-free for her, but in case you’re someone with wavy or curly hair, you could start with straightening your hair to achieve an even length before trimming.
And voila, it’s done! Quite simple, wasn’t it?
