Bear with me- I am a little excited about this so this post may sound like a rambling piece of nonsense. I apologize for that in advance, but seriously, bear with me.
I cut my daughter’s hair a month ago. Her hair used to look like this and now it looks like this. I know she is freaking adorable! What you cannot see, however, is that I completely butchered one side of her head because, in part, she would not stop moving. However, when I took her to my sister-in-law who is, unlike me, a certified hair dresser, she made me realize that the problem was not in how I cut her hair ( even beauty school dropouts can cut hair well) but in the fact that I never learned to hold scissors properly.
Can you imagine that? At 32 years old I find out that how I hold scissors has been the reason why I cannot cut on a straight line. Well, that mixed with the fact that I am a natural Lefty but was trained to be a righty by a mother who believed that lefties were “freakish”. At any rate, there is a proper way to hold scissors.
