I have earned quite a reputation as a haircutter here. I've been here a little over a month now and I think I've already given over 10 haircuts.
This past weeks Daisy, the leader of the Women's Social Work site, asked me if I would come to her site and teach the ladies how to cut hair. Several of them are interested in starting a salon but don't know how to cut hair. So I went and tried to explain to the ladies that never formally learned how to cut hair (so I I don't really know how to teach cutting hair) but I just learned by practicing on brave souls.
I demonstrated a basic layered cut and then another lady tried it on one of the girls there with me looking on. Overall it was pretty successful and the cuts turned out great. I plan on going back a few more times to demonstrate and help the ladies learn the basics of cutting hair.
