Guide to Doing Your Wolf Cut
Hair Tools You’ll Need
- Leave-in conditioner/moisturizer
- Hair brush
- Wide-tooth comb
- Cutting comb
- A pair of hair shears
- Hair bands
1. Get rid of knots and tangles
First, you want your hair free of knots or tangles. This makes it easier to work with. How do you do this? The first thing is to section your hair into as many parts as you can work with. Secondly, spray a hair section with some detangler. Thirdly, run your fingers through the section to get rid of knots or tangles. After that, comb with your wide-tooth comb. Repeat for the other hair sections until your hair is knot/tangle-free.
2. Brush your hair forward
After detangling, the next thing to do is to brush all your hair all the way to the front.
3. Tie it in a ponytail
Hold and tie your hair with a hair band to create a ponytail in front. Then tie your hair again some 2 – 4 inches away from the ends. The inches depend on how much length you want to let go.
4. Snip it off
Then with your hair shears, cut out the tip of your hair.
5. Take out the bands
After that, take out the bands. Then fluff your hair with your fingers.
6. Section your hair in front
With your cutting comb, section out your hair in front from ear to ear. Then repeat steps 3 and 4. Yeap, this hairstyle means you’re going to be doing some cutting. So remember, only cut as much or as little hair as you’re willing to let go. After that, take out the band and fluff the hair with your fingers.
7. Repeat the steps
Section your hair again horizontally, this time from one temple to the other. Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5. Now, don’t get discouraged because you’ve got this, girl!
8. Apply your moisturizer
You’re almost there. After fluffing, section your hair; this can be done with your fingers. Then apply your leave-in conditioner or moisturizer all over your hair. After that, fluff it so that it falls on your face, ears and neck. You’ll notice that your front hairs are shorter. Then with your hair shears, snip a bit out of your front hair to create even bangs. And with that, your curly hair wolf cut is done.
