You went into a new salon for a haircut and you came out looking like Dorthy Hamill!
What do you do now?
Before you lose your mind and attempt to hurt your stylist, take a long deep breath and try to come up with a solution to your unfortunate haircut before overreacting.
The first thing that you need to do is take a step back and evaluate if your consultation with the stylist was thorough enough. Did you convey your wants and needs?
If so, did you bring pictures of what types of styles interest you? Most stylist are visual artists, so pictures will always help convey the look you want to the stylist.
If you had a great consultation, came prepared and still ended up with a rather crazy haircut, it’s time to be honest with your stylist. Let the stylist know what you're unhappy with, and more than likely, he or she will try to fix your hair immediately.
When the cut is just too short or unmanageable what should you do?
You could buy a wig! Well, let's hope it doesn't go that far ... Let’s start with using styling tools to correct the bad haircut. Some common mishaps that happen with haircuts are:
- Choppy Layers: Try using a larger curling iron to add texture and movement to the hair. You can also try using a spray wax or pomade to fake extra texture, which will help blend the hair together.
- Uneven Hair: For this, try playing on having a asymmetrical look. This is a common style in high-fashion areas. You can also pull the hair back in a pony or wear fashionable headbands until you see your stylist.
- Too Short: Extensions will always add length and volume and it is a really quick fix for short hair. I would recommend Harmony Salon for extensions if you would ever need to go this route. We use all-human hair, top-of-the line protein bonds that make your hair look amazing. We are a certified salon.
- Let it grow! Stay away from the salon for a good two months. In the interim, you can also try prenatal vitamins, Nioxin hair care, less heat on the hair, conditioning treatments and strengthening treatments at the salon.
The average hair growth per month is 1/2 inch, with a little love from the hair goddesses, you will be back to long luxurious hair in no time.
