Argh

Just wanted to say for the record that I HATE MY FUCKING HAIR.

The woman I went to today cut it way too short, didn't listen to what I wanted (I even showed her a PICTURE of exactly what it looked like the day I got it cut last time), and I ended up with this little pixie bob that looks all the same length with points at either side. It's not face framing, it looks like she placed a damn box over my head.

When she was halfway through, I asked her if it would stay all one length, or if she was planning on framing my face at all because I prefer it that way. She said 'I could do that' and kept going. The only way to fix my hair is to go shorter, which I refuse to do. I guess I get to just look like a nut until it grows out.

I cut my own kids hair and it looks better than this. And this is supposed to be one of their 'top stylists'. I should have just waited for my regular person, but no - I let them do a switcheroo.

Look at my icon. See where the top of my iPod is? That's the length of my hair.

Im so sorry that she hacked your hair. I hope it grows fast. I refuse to get mine cut, once a year I go in and get a trim. I dont trust anyone with scissors around my hair. Last time I went in she cut well over 7 inches off because she "deemed it was unhealthy" as if that gave her the right. GRRRR..

I know. I told her I just went with short hair a few months ago, said I just wanted a trim, voiced concerns that she had cut it all one length (which she said she would fix), and hardly spoke to me.

You want to know the worst part? I was in shock, figuring it was just the length that threw me off, so I actually TIPPED HER! I just automatically tip, and I didn't even associate the fact that I was in shock because I hated what she had done with NOT TIPPING.

They open in an hour, so I'm going to call and talk to the manager about someone ELSE trying to fix my hair on the sides. I know there is no way to fix it without going even shorter, but I can't take these damn pointy things going across my cheeks.

Long hair was so much easier. If it was screwed up you just pulled it back!

yep - long hair in a ponytail today in fact. :) I am getting my hair cut today. But - not short trimmed up with some nice layers and maybe 3 or 4 inches off. I will still have long hair. I'm just such the ponytail fan. :)

Sorry about your experience - last guy I went to at JC Penney's to get a "cheaper" cut (yeah get real) Messed up my cut and couldn't style AT ALL. And I have long hair - how do you mess up and long hair trim???? I'm back to my more expensive stylist today. If I am paying 40 bucks plus tip fopr just a shampoo cut and blow- dry... my hair had better look movie star quality.

This girl was 55 plus tip. I don't go for cheap, because I was burned too many times in the past. This girl was supposed to be at the same level as the girl who normally does a great job on my hair and did the first cut. It's one of their highest levels.

Anyway, I'll post pictures later today. I just got back from getting it 'fixed' by their educational coordinator - basically an 'expert' there at the salon that is in charge of everyone else and fixes anything that goes wrong. It looks a bit better and is livable until it grows out, but the pictures will show:

I don't have much hair left. :)

When I lived in Lost Angels, Californica, I once needed an Emergency Haircut and they said (in a trembling voice) that the only one available to do cuts was (drum roll) DAN.

"Dan will be fine," I said, not knowing what I was in for. Long story short, what took my usual cutter half an hour to do right, took Dan 2 hours to do very, very wrong. The next time, I switched to another tonsorial parlor (barber shop) and never looked back.

Don't worry, Trish .. it'll grow back (he said, while gasping).
