Hi. My name is Summer Spence. I'm a cosmetologist. I'm here at The Wedding Cottage in Hawaii. I'm going to show you how to trim uneven damaged ends. To cut damaged uneven ends, you're going to use sheers, a comb and an alligator clip. So I'm just going to be cutting the top section of my hair. So sectioned this out so it's out of the way. Using my comb, I'm going to section a Mohawk section and then I'm going to cut from here and work my way forward. I have uneven ends here. So one way you can see what needs to come out is to kind of shake your hair. And if any pieces fall out, then let them fall out and then you have whatever is left. As you can see I have uneven breakage. Holding up in between your first finger and your second finger, and taking your sheers at an angle, and just cutting little snips into that line. Then taking the next section forward, I'm going to do the same thing, finishing the line. Taking a next section forward, as I move forward my hair gets shorter and so the breakage is more uneven. So as you can see when I comb this up, and I pull this back, there's shorter hairs and then there's longer hairs. As opposed to holding it horizontal, the way we have been cutting, I'm going to take it this way and change the direction of my fingers. And that way you can see the shorter piece compared to that longer piece. And so the idea is to blend this more naturally than to have all the uneven pieces. So starting with my guide here which is the shortest point, and angling up, gently open and close, open and close, open and close and work my way up. So I just took this section that I just cut, I'm sectioning it and this time I'm going to bring it forward and blend it with the hair that's in the front. So taking a narrower section, and cut. So this section was where I had a lot of damage and so instead of cutting all of my hair to this length, I'm using it to blend it out, both forward and back. I still have my guide from right here, and bringing that forward, and then I have this short point on my guide, and then I have all these long pieces that need to be evened out. So I could take that then just cut it just like that and leave it at an angle so I still have that length and I have those layers without having to lose a lot of length. OK. After you've taken our center section forward and off to the side and off to this side, then we're going to comb it up and do a cross check again. Now remember we cut it at an angle, so the sides are going to be a little bit longer than the center. But this one is a little bit longer than we want it to be. So the whole point of this is going from the shortest point of our damage and trying to blend out to our longer pieces so that we don't have to cut everything off to the shortest piece that's damaged. I'm Summer Spence and I just showed you how to trim uneven damaged ends.
