6 Tips & Tools You Need for DIY Haircut at Home

The past 3 months seem like a bad dream. Quarantine, what? So if you’re like us, raring to go out into the world but still find it so difficult to book a haircut at your favorite man-cave because of the new normal, that can be a bummer. 

Still can’t shake that unkempt feeling though? Don’t worry, buddy! We’re showing you some cool tips and tricks to DIY trim and style your hair during lockdown with the help of the right products and tools. Just follow these 6 helpful tips for you to have a successful haircut at home. 

Tip#1: Decide on the Haircut you wa

Let’s get real! Cutting your hair can be challenging. We only suggest to shape them up a bit but don’t give yourself a makeover—that’s a no-no. The least that you can do is to check out some haircut guides on Youtube for a quick reference. Also, make sure all your tools are nearby and readily available. 


Tip#2: Prepare Your Tools 

What you need: Clipper or razor 


 Have your clipper or razor ready and decide which number of clippers you’re going to use for the length of your hair. Remember, the lower the number on your clipper, the shorter the cut. Start trimming your sideburns and clean up your beard; shape them according to your preferred volume. 

What you need: Scissors and comb

Aside from a clipper, you’ll be needing a nice pair of scissors and comb. Next, mount a dual mirror to check the back of your head if you’re doing this by yourself. Of course, it would be easier if you have someone to assist you in this part. Scissors and combs are important, but use them for really focused work—just a complement to your clippers. 

Tip#3: The Bathroom is your Haircutting Station  

Tools you need: newspapers or any big sheet, broom, or vacuum

Choose a spot to your home where there’s an ample amount of light—we suggest the bathroom as your makeshift hair cutting station. Inside the bath, you can spread the sheet down to catch all the loose hair and have your broom or vacuum ready for easy cleanup. Also, cut in front of a bathroom sink for an immediate wash-off. 

Tip#4: Choose the right GATSBY Hair Product
