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

Published on: Updated on:

It’s almost impossible to get a haircut as a mum of 2, especially under Covid-19 lockdown period. My hair has grown so long over the past few months, and any new mums would know that babies love clinging onto them for some reason.

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.

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

I recorded a video afterwards to demonstrate the exact steps I took to cut my own hair with a 2 minutes timer – sadly, that’s usually how long I can put my 3 months old down.


All You Need Is:

  • a pair of scissors
  • a hairbrush
  • a few hairbands
  • a mirror
