- Wedding: July 2010
So if some of you read my other post in Beauty Soo I got a haircut and– Hate it!
You already know some about my frustration. Basically it goes like this….
I have been growing my hair out for almost a year now so i would have enough hair to do something for my wedding. MY hair was looking horrible and i kept trying to get my bestfriend/ bridesmaid and my hairdresser ( she has done my hair for years and is a really good hairdresser, i have worked with her several times and seen her work) to trim it up for me because it was lookign really unhealthy from constant abuse of the flat iron and for months she wouldnt even trim it so we finally decided liek a month ago that we would plan to cut my hair 2 weeks before my bachlorette party. So last week She cut my hair she was suppose to just snip the ends and then just angle my bangs back in and just blend my layers back in on the bottom and thin it out a little.. (which we do all the time)
I went in with hair down to my shoulders that i could put in low pig tails or almost get all in a tiny ponytail I come out with hair above my chin in the front and a horrible mess. NOW me being a hairdresser I realize i nit pick and criticize my haircut more than most people so i thought well im not going to stress i will give it a couple of days. It was horrible …. like i had to cut a bunch of long pieces out of the underneath of the back. I have very heavy straight across blunt bangs… i have tried to angle as much as i can but it doesnt look right they are just too heavy. I have layers that are chopped to about 2 inches short on one side and then no layers at all in parts of the otherside. The whole hair cut was crooked and goes up hill in the front so comes shorter in the front than in the back. It wont do anything…. i try to curl it and it is just ends up a poofy mess… I flat iron it and one side does on but the other side there is all these little short pieces that just stick out.. It wont go under it wont turn out… I have pieces in my crown that stick straight up bc they are only about an inch long there is just pieces throughout my hair that has just been completely chopped off for no purpose whatsoever.
I flat ironed my hair this morning 3 times trying to get it to look good enough for work … because as a stylist I have to have a nice hairstyle … my manager jumped on my ass today because it looked so bad. (this btw was after me and 2 other stylist today had already cut on some of the mess to make it look better or at least even it up) After explaining to her my issues she told me I had to have it fixed because it was bad for buisness for me to walk around the shop looking like that… i actually had plans after work so I had to go all the way back to have my hair done tonight.
I am honestly so upset about this… like I am just in tears over it and for me that is huge because I have never been one to be attached to my hair i have had 1 inch of hair and kept a pixie cut for 2 years then a short angled stack but I have grown and grown and grown my hair for so long and she knew that she was the one that road my ass about not cutting it till after the wedding… and she went and not only cut it back off to where I was about 6 months ago but did a shitty job at that.
It at least looks somewhat more even now but it is still just horrible it wont turn under… parts of it are too short ot even grab with a flat iron it wont poof up it wont go sleek and straight without all these random hairs poking out everywhere It wont curl because there are about 10 million different layers in it it just looks like a poof ball
I am honestly heartbroken because I have no idea what I am going to do for my wedding which is in 33 days.
I am now mad at her because after days to think about it and her blowing me off 3 times to hang out since then… I finally told her that i wanted to tell her something and i hope it didnt hurt her feelings and i told her that she got really carried away on my hair and that now it wasnt going to do anything for my wedding. She was so insensitive to things she was like well you have a month for it to grow back out. Then when i proceeded to tell her that i dint know what was going on but there was some things that we just off she said nothing else.
I am very upset with her.. expecially because the whole time she was cutting my hair she was telling me how she had started smoking pot again and honestly i think to screw my hair up this bad it had to be either intentional or that she was messed up.
She has been one of my bestfriends for years and was a fellow coworker till just recently. She is suppose to be one my bridesmaids in my wedding and she was the person who was going to do my wedding hair.
Honestly I am not sure I want her to do my wedding hair anymore… I am very upset with her… the entire time i have tried to tell her my ideas or show her my ideas she really doesnt either try that hard or just says oh your hair wont do that and does whatever she wants with it. Like the updo from my hairtrial … not dont get me wrong there was nothing wrong with it but i was not crazy about it at first and then other people started telling me how cute it was and i was like well maybe they see something i dont. To me it is prom hair not at all what i wanted. I showed her pictures of loose curls and vintage NO picture i showed her was UP in anyway.
I dont want her to be upset with me, I dont want to hurt her and I dont want to cause bitterness because we already had a spout of that not long ago … and i dont want her to drop out of the wedding but I dont know how to handle this situation.
What would you do in my shoes?
