A Bad Day at The Salon...

With my husband having off for MLK day, I decided it would be a great day to go get my hair cut and highlighted.

When did I make that decision, one might ask? Well, this morning around 10:30AM.

Did I call ahead to see if my normal stylist was there? No.

Did I leave the salon when I found out that she wasn't on the schedule for the day? No.

I looked around and settled on a stylist that had done a deep conditioning treatment on my hair before...a stylist that had never even lifted a pair of scissors to my hair.

Was this a mistake? OH, H-E-DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS - YES!!!

As you can see from my photos on the left side of my blog, I have VERY curly hair. I explained this to the stylist several times. I told her that my hair does not like layers. I also told her my hair craves/needs length to help keep the curls from curling up as tight as a poodles. I then went on to tell her that I wanted some more highlights (to cover the grays that keep popping up). I told her to keep it a soft blonde like I already had.

For some reason, when she was cutting my hair after the highlights were complete she had me turned away from the mirror. I have a lot of hair so I just assumed it was so she could get around a bit easier. Yes, I am a fool! She was trying to hide not only the crazy layers she was adding to my hair but the color as well.

When she spun me around, I not only noticed that a lot of my length was gone but that my highlights were that bluish platinum blonde. I seriously had to hold back the tears.

So, from now until the length and the layers grow out and the color fades...I will be wearing a lot of low cut blouses!

What is your hair nightmare story?

Oh no! I'm so sorry that happened!

{I so would have cried!}

Whhaaaat? She specifically did to your hair what you told her not to (and hid it from you because it wasnt what you said)?!? That would make me FURIOUS. I'd definitely be talking with the manager.

I am sorry. I would have been spitting mad. That girl should have known if she cut your hair shorter how your hair would do.

Oh NO! I am so sorry. My worst cut was back in the mid-90's. Remember "The Rachel"? Yeah, I am not usually a follower like that, but I loved her haircut so much that I caved and asked for it. Well, what I got was the "Carol Brady". Seriously- it had this mushroom cloud sort of poof-y bob on top with a severe flip coming out from underneath the mushroom. It was BAD.

Nooooooooo, not all that pretty hair. I would certainly complain (and cry!) My bad hair was an awful perm in the early 80s that fell out halfway and took a year to grow out. Time to get out your hats?

Oh dear! I would have been so upset, then furious with what that stylist did. I surely hope that you spoke to the manager about what happened.

I think I would buy scarves and hats to cover up. Or pull your hair up in a ponytail for the duration.

Ugh. I'm sorta afraid to go to the salon again. Last time I went (to a high-end place that was really highly recommended by an acquaintance), I told her what I wanted and what I definitely didn't want... and she gave me exactly what I said I didn't want and ignored what I said I did want..

I don't take recommendations from that acquaintance anymore either. Even for toilet plungers. The guys at church snickered at me for like a month.

Oh no - that would definitely upset me. I don't have any real nightmare stories because I'm not brave enough to do anything really different with my hair. But I did go get mine cut a couple weeks ago. Like you, I decided mid-morning that I HAD to get it cut that day because it was driving me crazy. It was too late for an appointment so I went to Great Clips at lunch. And it was not a good experience or a good haircut! It's not horrible - it's just not good. But it'll grow, so I won't worry about it.

uh-oh! Is it just me or are us curly haired girls more prone to hair nightmares?

I have too many to remember! I haven't had my hair cut in 7 months and a day or 2 before New Years I decided it was time...much like you did. Randomly called a place I had NEVER even been and Ida the ageing hair stylist (she was at least 60!) talked me in to bangs.

I used to be a total impulse hair cutter and it almost always ended in disaster. Now I restrain myself and go to the same stylist all the time even when I have to restrain myself when she can't fit me in right away!!!

In a fit of sanity and planning aheadness I even scheduled my pre vacation/pre holiday haircut for and color for December way back in October. That is very progressive for me!

I can't believe you didn't show us a pic of your new hair!!!

I have curls too. I have had some stylists that didn't understand my hair length would shrink up when my hair was dry. I ended up with really short hair.

Crap! about 6 months before my wedding - I went to a new girl to have my eyebrows waxed. (you know where this is going, right?) She ripped off the back 1/2 of my eyebrow. No lie.

It grew in...just in time.

Oh no!! I seriously could tear up for you!I have had plenty of bad hair cuts. I have VERY think hair. Which means I need length. or I look like a puff ball. The last time I went to our small town lady she had me and two other clients going at once. To make a long story short, she left the color on too long and cut short and straight across my hair. I had almost white hair with a bad cut. I called off work teh next day and went to a very expensive place to fix it. They helped a little. Last time I ever went back there!

You know they say,"Don't let your mom comb your hair when she's mad." Mine is a cosmetologist. I can add..."don't make your mom mad before she perms your hair." When she left my house I went straight to the shower and shampooed and conditioned. It didn't relax a bit.

Oh! I feel your pain! When I first had my hair cut as short as it is, I had this super cute cut done. I went back to get it trimmed up (okay, it had grown way out)and had someone else cut it. Yikes! She took scissors and literally cut a deep V in the back of my hair when I said i wanted it a little longer in front than back. I had to have my mom TRY to fix it so it wasn't awful until it grew out some.

Oh how awful! So sorry friend!

Ack! I'm so sorry. When a person gets their hair done, they're pretty much putting all of their trust in the stylist. I'm sorry yours didn't listen to you.

I can't think of a bad haircut that I've had recently, but I used to go to this place in the mall that I finally just got fed up with. Every time I found a good person, they would be gone the next time I called for an appointment. And the people who were left would just make me feel bad because I didn't do things with my hair that they thought I should.

Oh, no! Luckily it's only hair and not permanent...but I know how you feel! It's your HAIR!! My brother's been my hairdresser since I was 11. My head has pretty much always been in his hands...but the worst was when I was in Grade 9 and he cut "steps" into the back of my hair (all the rage back then I guess) and my mom convinced me that it looked awful so had him cut it out and then I had like an army buzz cut! In my school at the time there were two punk rockers with hair like this and me! I was pretty devastated...but it grew! I'd call the salon and go back and get it fixed...at least the colour! They should remedy it as best they can...but get your regular stylist to do it.
