the haircut

So...I got my hair cut last Saturday.

It was kind of anticlimactic.

I'm not sure if it's the haircut or my hair. The latter having to recover from the mass exodus of hair that left my head postpartum.

Either way, I didn't like how she styled it. It was SUPER sleek and straight and it just made me feel like I had flat hair. I've never felt like that before because I usually have SO MUCH HAIR, but my hair has really thinned - especially in the front and she didn't want to give me side bangs as that would accentuate the thinness. But I think (6 days later) I actually need the side bangs.

Anyway, all that to say, I'm not pleased. I agree with her that it's likely to accentuate my thinness (of my hair - not my waist unfortunately) but I think I need it anyway.

Should I go back?

I don't know what to do.

I'm just not happy with my hair.

And I honestly don't think it's HER fault - or maybe it is? Should a hairdresser be able to work magic, no matter why kind of hair you have? Maybe she did the best with what I gave her and what I wanted...
I don't know.

By the way, I went with the angled bob. My hair's not long enough in the front for it to be dramatic enough and she kept it rather blunt at the back (not high like the picture of Posh spice I posted here.) which I thought I wanted at the time...but maybe not?

So yeah.

What to do?


  1. Well I'd say if you're going on, stop by say you got it cut a week ago and took the hairdressers advice to have no bangs but you dont' like how it looks now and you'd like the bangs please...I went back ONCE in my life and they did it for me no problem, just say it's not what I thought I wanted :)I think you look great though, as always :)

  2. If you are nervous about just 'stopping in' perhaps call or email first to get the vibe. I would suggest trying to get them to help you out. Maybe you could try to talk directly to the girl who cut your hair, and say, "I was wondering if you might be able to help me work with this hair cut a bit more. After going away and attempting to let it settle for a couple days it just doesnt seem to be working for me. Could I come in and add those bangs we talked about?" Or something like that...
    I have no idea if she would charge you for another cut... but maybe if you talk to her on the phone or through email first then you would have a chance to see what her vibe is. If over the phone she is being snooty or disagreeable then you could consider going to a completely new hairdresser to address your needs.

  3. hmm I'll check it out tonight and see. :)

  4. you shouldn't have to pay for another cut - she should be able to fix it if you don't like it. that has happened to me twice - if she's a good hairdresser she'll want you to be happy with your cut and be happy to fix it for no charge. at least in my experience, that has been the case. even if you're not happy with HER (which was the case for me once)the salon should still give you someone else to fix the cut free of charge.

  5. Thanks, ladies.
    I called and said I wasn't happy with the haircut and if I could come back and get it fixed.
    So I'm going back on Tuesday. We'll see what happens. We didn't talk about price or This may make or break my relationship with this hair salon.

  6. I like this length on you. Maybe styling differently will make you more confident with the bangs? Either way, if YOU don't like it, always go back. But you're a terrific short hair cut person in my books, I'm inspired to chop my locks...


I love hearing from you!
