How To Do Your Own Big Chop & Style Your TWA After

Do Your Own Big Chop & Style Your TWA

So you’re ready to do the Big Chop huh? It’s super easy to do it yourself. And you’ll have a better chance of it coming out exactly how you want. At least in my experience.

DIY Big Chop

I did a Second Big Chop earlier this Summer, and I couldn’t be happier. No matter how much I try to grow out my hair, I always find myself reaching for the clippers. What can I say, I just don’t like a lot of hair on my head. Short hair fits my face, my style and my lifestyle. It’s so much easier for me to manage. My hair has grown out a bit since then, but I’ve still been keeping it pretty short. I might let it grow out some more for the colder months. But anyway…

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

    Hi, is it better to use the brush for coils or a coil sponge?

      I prefer the brush as it’s easier to find one that works. But it depends on what works best for your hair.

    Thank you for sharing this tutorial. I love how this looks. My haircut is similar but the too is getting unruly. I’m about to try this.
