So I want to start out by saying that I’m pretty low maintenance. I don’t really spend a ton of time on hair and makeup in the mornings, and oftentimes just let my hair air-dry instead of blowing it out myself. I have long layers.
BUT, when I get a haircut, i just HAVE to have the layers perfect to my liking. Not too much, not too little, perfectly even on both sides, not too light and not to heavy, and they need to fall perfectly in place with balance and ease.
Everytime after I get a haircut, I spend a ton of time in my bathroom fixing the imperfections myself, cutting and texturizing where I see fit. (YES, over the years, I’ve learned how to fix the mis-steps my hair stylists have made by myself, with professional scissors and professional techniques..haha).
I feel like I’m OCD about it…I’m seriously a perfectionist about my haircuts. Is anyone else like this?!?! Am I crazy??
I am not because I have curly hair and it just falls whichever way. I don’t think you are crazy though
I am not about the cut. Color is my area of craziness. As soon as I see like half an inch of roots I get the need to dye it. I just went and saw my hairdreseser for a cut and all I told her was that I still wanted to be able to put it up but she could do whatever she wanted.
For the last ten years, you wouldn’t even have realized when I got a haircut. I would get the tiniest trim every 3 months because I love long hair and never wanted my lady to cut too much off.
But I recently cut bangs after not having them for about 20 years, and I love them and am so obsessed with looking at them, making sure they are in place and not looking all wind blown..lol
@summerxq: Anal retentive, not OCD.
I just got side swept bangs. I’m a bit obsessed with making sure they’re in the right place and not too much has been taken down for them when my hairs pulled up… But as far as the read of it? Nah. My stylist has been my stylist for so long I tell her to take off “some” and she understands I mean like 3″. I have fairly long hair so no one really notices unless I get my hair dyed too.
Bangs…I cut my own bangs because I don’t trust the stylist enough to do that! Talk about being super anal retentive
I just had my haircut. My hairdresser asked me what I wanted. I said I dunno . then she got the scissors out and started cutting . It is now a pixie cut from about the top of my butt
i most definately do this. i always have to go home wash and restyle my hair after visiting the salon to see how it falls. If its no right then i get he scissors out. I think i take after my mother. I always cut my own fringe and they never cut it how i like it.
I bought a creaclip last yeat and have ben cutting my own hair ever since.
