Repeat the above steps for all the sections of hair, one by one. Before getting a haircut, you have to first untangle your hair by following the above specified guidelines, then spray it with water, and make sections before snipping it off. If you have curly or kinked hair, use a wide-toothed comb to prevent hair from breaking. If your hair is wavy, use a round comb, and brush in the direction of the curves. Remove clumped hair that is collects in the comb's teeth, before every brush stroke.
