You might wanna screenshot this list.

We all have those moments when we just want to take professional matters into our own hands when it comes to our hair. While it may not be a bad idea to try something you think you’re good at doing, it may not always result in a look that is truly wearable. Take bangs for example: We’ve seen cutting your own fringe go wrong countless times. It’s best to just leave a list of top hair styling don’ts up to the pros.

Want to know our top hair don’ts? Read this list and stick it somewhere you can see it as a reminder.

1. Don’t cut your own fringe.

As we mentioned previously, cutting your own fringe can go completely wrong even if you’re using a tutorial to walk you through the process. If you really want a quick bang style, opt for following our fake bangs tutorial instead. We promise, you won’t regret it.

One of the top hair styling don’ts includes not bleaching your hair on your own.

2. Don’t bleach your own hair.

At-home coloring kits like dyes and glosses are one thing, bleach isn’t something you should take into your own hands. Think about it, top stylists have gone through hours of training to nail the best bleaching procedures for their clients. Why do you think you can nail it in under an hour? It’s a better idea to invest in a good stylist before you fry your hair at home.

If you do color your hair at home, or have color treated hair, you can take hair care into your hands. Use a masque, like Love Beauty and Planet Blooming Color Murumuru Butter & Rose 2-Minute Magic Masque for a quick at-home deep conditioning treatment.

3. Don’t cut your own hair.

If you’re doing a light dusting, you can get away with doing this on your own. However, if you wake up one day and felt you want a change into a bob or a pixie, step away from the scissors. What you may not know is that not all scissors are for hair cutting. Secondly, a stylist knows how to give you the best haircut to suit your face shape.
