While nothing beats that fresh post-salon new hairstyle feeling, keeping on top of regular haircuts can be costly, time-consuming and a bit of a hassle.

That's why we've called on some of the top hairdressers in the UK to share a fool-proof guide to cutting your hair at home.

Before you start panicking that you'll end up with wonky locks, fear not; these simple steps will teach you how to give your hair a quick trim (rather than a dramatic new look).

Keeping on top of regular trims not only keeps your style in tact, it also helps banish split ends and keep hair in better condition.

Here are the top tips from the team at Windle & Moodie for trimming your hair at home...

1. Take inch long sections of your hair, and twist it around your finger.

2. Hold your hair near the end, take the scissors perpendicular to your fingers, and cut into the hair.

3. If you twist it and cut into the hair, it breaks up the cutting line you would get otherwise.

4. Style and ensure the look lasts all day by using the Windle & Moodie Matte Texture Spray. This spray gives root lift as well as a lightweight hold and seals in moisture.

It really is that simple.
