What To Do With A Bad Cut

May 24, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Have you ever gone to your hairstylist and told her to do a cute celebrity-inspired hairstyle? Next thing you know you look in the mirror at yourself and your hair looks completely different from the picture you showed her. This is one of the worst feelings I’ve ever experienced with getting my hair cut. Getting the cut you want is crucial because it has to look this way every day and if you can’t even appreciate your own hair, what can you appreciate? Here’s what to do when you receive a “grade F” haircut.

Say you give a picture of Victoria Beckham’s short and stacked in the back look to your stylist. This cut is extremely hard to achieve because her hair tends to drape down next to her ears and get shorter around the neckline as you go toward the back. Getting everything even and symmetric can be difficult but that’s what a hairstylist is there for. If she does the cut wrong it won’t make her clients happy and that includes you.

When she begins with the hair shears, you should be very specific and tell her exactly what you want in detail. Make sure she knows exactly how you want your look to be, from color to cut. Sometimes my problem is that when I’m finished getting my hair done, it looks great and I couldn’t do it any better. But the next morning when I shower and get ready to style my hair by myself, it doesn’t look as good as it could and I end up not being happy. After showering and getting the styling done, I realize it’s not the cut I was looking for and I begin to worry about what to do next.

When I get a cut that I don’t like, I have found there to be a couple different solutions- I can either have her fix it or deal with it until it grows back out. If I decide to get it fixed, I will go to my hairdresser and explain exactly what I don’t like about my cut (again with lots of detail!) When she’s done fixing the hair, I will ask if I can style it myself to make sure it looks just how I like it. If it does, then I’m happy and the problem’s solved. If I decide to wait and let it grow out a bit, then I usually end up wearing it in ponytails or finding a way to make the bad cut less obvious.

Whether the cut is uneven or the color doesn’t look light enough, you can guarantee that your reaction won’t be positive. If you get a bad haircut, you can think of these couple solutions and make the experience a good one. No problems will occur if you have a solution in mind. And don’t forget to be very specific in the first place so you don’t get too bad of a cut that makes you upset with your hair.

Top 3 Celebrity Hairstyles You Want!

It’s called the “bed head”, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Moss and GiseleĀ are wearing it. The messy but sexy tousled hair, has to be past the shoulders to be effective though. For this look, blow dry upside down, use a hair straightener on only some of it and use it quickly, just sliding down any section here and there. Then use a large barreled curling iron and curl someĀ of the sections you left out hair straightening. Use it fast and not in any kind of order.

The bob: Katie Holmes, Patricia Arquette and Victoria Beckham are all sporting them. A fresh cut is the fastest way to healthier hair! The look is easy to get with a light blow-dry and a hair straightener, you can either straighten the bob flat or flip sides up or in.

Then there’s the French cut bangs. Get your hair styled any way you like and let your stylist go heavy on your bangs. Leave them long enough and you can sweep them back when you feel they are too heavy in hot weather. Use a straightener for the bangs, or the whole head of hair. Or blow dry upside down for a slight scrunchy curl, still hair straightening the bangs.

Till next time, Good Luck,

Niki
