Bad haircuts happen to good people.
If you’ve ever experienced the woe of a bad haircut, take comfort in knowing that you’re not alone. And while it may seem devastating, it truly is not the end of the world. Take a deep breath. Everything is going to be just fine.
Talk to your hairstylist! If you notice things taking a turn for the worst while you’re in the chair, mention your concern right away and see if there’s something you can do about that choppy trim while you’re right there in the salon.
If you get home, look in the mirror and realize that this hair-do is not for you, call the stylist from home. Most will appreciate your honesty and offerto fix your haircut, usually for no additional cost.
If it’s too late to fix, ask her to show you how to style your new do into something less dreadful. Who knows? You may end up loving it once you know what to do with it!
Let It Grow
When your sassy new style ends up looking like a hairstyle hack-job, and there doesn’t seem to be any sort of quick cut solution, you may just have to give it a few weeks and let it grow.
Go au naturel. Heat damage causes breakage, so instead of using a flat iron every day, blow dry your hair or let it air dry. The less breakage, the faster your hair will be able to grow.
Let your hair rest. Try to stay away from any chemical hair services like highlights, perms and any sort of chemical treatments to avoid more breakage and damage.
Get a trim. Even though your hair has been through a relatively rough cut, getting a trim every 6-8 weeks will help to reduce the breakage to your hair and help your hair grow stronger.
Pump up the protein. Give your hair the strength and love it needs by treating it right. High heat protection sprays and protein treatments are just one way to take care of your hair and enhance the strength it needs to grow.
A bad haircut is just that – a bad haircut.
Hair grows back and confidence is key; it goes a long way in making others see you in a different light. So make the most of an awful situation and own that style.
The average person’s hair grows one-half inch per month. So, with a little tender loving care and attention, you will soon get your length back.
Hi there! I was just wondering if you do undercuts? I have a specific design I want to but I’m not really sure who in Edmonton does them. Thank you very much!
Gob smacked..This page leaves me thinking that bad haircuts must be the norm here. ??? No one should leave a salon looking like their hair has been cut by a four year old wielding a butter knife. Maybe it is time for management to sharpen the scissors & get the staff who need it some extra training. Possibly a much better investment than devoting an advice page on how to deal with the result of your stylist’s off day.
