Everything Parents Need to Know Before Cutting Their Kids' Hair During Self-Isolation
While practicing self-isolation with our families, obviously topics like the best ways to homeschool and how to sneak in exercise are top of mind. However, it's hard not to acknowledge the simple luxuries we miss — like, say, getting our kids proper haircuts — after a few weeks indoors. Because cutting your children's hair can certainly be intimidating if you've never done it yourself, we tapped Michelle Cleveland, a celebrity hairstylist and owner of the Hair Addict Salon in Toms River, NJ, to get some much-needed pointers before whipping out our scissors.
"The biggest mistake parents make with at-home haircuts is not realizing that there is more to cutting hair than just taking off length," Michelle told POPSUGAR. "Professionals are taught to take such factors as the rounds and curves of the skull, head shape, and how important of a role that takes in how the hair lays on the head into consideration."
Eek! Yup, we definitely don't have that training. But with salons closed for the foreseeable future, sometimes you need to take matters into your own hands. Ahead, find helpful how-to videos and tips from Michelle to achieve a passable haircut at home.
