We love her post on "Five haircuts to try today!"

Men's haircuts

Roxie knows it's not just the ladies who care about their hair. How To Hair Girl has lots of looks and tips for men's styles from Rockabilly to Hipster. She even has a post on how you cut your husband's (or boyfriend's) hair. And, as she notes, the DIY haircuts in her men's category are by no means limited to men. They can be worn by anyone, they just happen to be modeled by men. (Some super-cute men at that!)

  1. I found her site about a month ago, and LOVE it. I cut my own hair for the first time using one of her '5 DIY' haircuts, and it turned out so well I'm not sure I'll ever get my hair cut at a salon again!

      • I did number 5 – the mid length layered bob, since my hair isn't super long right now. I ended up also taking the front layers and trimming them just a bit shorter as well, and it turned out great!

  2. Clicking over there right now! Totally spending the next few hours at this blog. Thank you!

  3. Gah this is amazing, I am so inspired! I hate paying to have my hair cut, so I'm definitely gonna try to work on my own skills. I also went and bought a variety of clips and bobby pins and clear elastics so that I can work on fun hairstyles so that I don't just hate my hair and put it up in a ponytail all the time. I'm also psyched that she is shampoo-free since that's the kind of hair I'm working with now too.

  4. I've used her method to cut my bangs, and that worked well, and saved me a trip to the haircutter. Haven't quite had the guts to try for the whole haircut, yet. She sure makes it *look* easy…

  5. 502 error? Oops, looks like Offbeathome might have been a little too enthusiastic!

    Will bookmark to check out later though, I find going to the hairdresser such a weird, judgey experience! I used to shave my head which was just so freeing to be able to do anytime I liked, but more styles would be great!

    1 agrees
  6. Yes! I purchased her "hipster pixie chic" tutorial vid a few months ago. I love to rock the pixie cut, but I can't afford to go to salons for the upkeep. I can manage to do the top/front part of my hair solo and my future hubby is sweet enough to help me trim the back.

    Anyways, yes. She's legit. I'd highly recommend her videos to anyone interested in DIY hair!

    1 agrees
  7. OMG, this is fantastic. My hair has been seriously bumming me out lately.
    I'm so excited so many Offbeat Homies have tried her tutorials with success! Makes me feel better about trying it myself.

    1 agrees
  8. I love this lady and her blog! Though I will say that my only disappointment was finding the "how to trim your lady parts" tutorial was not on how to trim your down-lady parts, but the hair by your face. 😀

    1 agrees
  9. Maybe this shouldn't be titled for "ANYONE"? This definitely does not apply to my kind of hair.

    • That's a great peice of feedback/request for Roxie… and you make a great point about the post's title. It's been edited.

      (Also, while I have NO idea what kind of hair you have, if it's coarse/kinky, you may want to check out these posts on Offbeat Bride!)

      1 agrees
      • Thanks for actually taking my comment seriously! Greatly appreciated.

        And yes I do have that kind of hair! I have seen those posts as well, which is why I was sort of surprised by the original title because you all at offbeat are really awesome with acknowledging these kinds of things…

        many thanks!

  10. Yay! Awesome! I have a friend cut my (long) hair but it's a simple straight cut. I've also started cutting my fiance's hair at home but it's just a buzz cut with a guard… maybe I can learn to do fancy type things ::grin::

  11. I want to try one of those 5 diy styles tonight! I'm thinking #2 or #4. Do you cut them dry? I've never cut my own hair before (besides my bangs). I'm a bit nervous, but Roxie makes it sound so damn easy!

    • It is easy! You should go for it! I tried # 2 on my own hair and #4 on my best friend's hair the day I saw this post. I have never cut my hair before, but it turned out great! I cut my hair dry, so I could make sure I wasn't taking too much off.

  12. Whew – I did it. #3.

    And it looks pretty good.

    Is this the quality of haircut I would get if I had gone to the salon? No. But it looks quite nice. And I didn't have to work "visit salon" into my schedule. And it was worth every penny I paid for it, and then some 🙂

    Would try it again!

  13. I've been cutting my own hair for 14 years now, but I've never actually looked up or been taught how to do it "the right way" or anything. I'll definitely go and check it out to see if I can learn anything.

    I really do encourage people to go ahead and try it. Everyone's always super amazed when I tell them I cut my own hair. It's not hard, especially since I do a short, choppy pixie cut. It's very forgiving.
