How to Cut Your Own Hair at Home in 2 Minutes DIY Mum Hack

Written on Revised on

It’s almost impossible to get a haircut as a mum of 2, especially under the Covid lockdown period. My hair has grown so long over the past few months, and any new mums would know how annoying it is to have a baby pulling your hair all the time.

I had no choice but to tie my hair into a bun day and night. As a result, my hair was damaged with split ends and tangled like fur balls. Out of desperation, I tried a DIY quick fix haircut at home this morning and was pleasantly surprised with how well it turned out.

I recorded a video afterwards to demonstrate the exact steps I took to cut my own hair with a 2 minutes timer. Sadly, 2 minutes was how long I could put my 3 months old baby down.

Well, of course, you can’t compare this DIY to a haircut from the salon, but it’s good enough for mums who will just end up tying your hair into a bun anyway.
