It may sound crazy, but cutting your hair upside down creates long layers. Not only can you add layers while the blood rushes to your head, you can also see what you're doing. No, it's not the rush of blood that makes the cut clearer, it's the simple fact that you can see the ends of your hair. Instead of holding the hair up as high as you can and trying to snip the ends at your arms' farthest reach, relax. Flip your head over and start cutting.
