Got my hair cut today, it was juts over shoulder length with bangs. The stylist did layers, and used a razor cut to shape the hair around the front of my face. I hate it!! The layers fall about the base of my skull, and the rest is beyond shoulder length still, so now it’s very thin between the neck and shoulder area. I wear a ponytail a lot, and I tested it, and there’s about half the hair there than there was prior to the cut.
I’m going back tomorrow to get it fixed, but who else has had a really bad haircut? Any right before the wedding??

I’ve had a few bad haircuts before, but not right before my wedding (I grew it out and wore it down).
I will say, though, that there are so many styles that can be done with short hair. I actually regret wearing my hair long on my wedding day.
Aaand I just noticed that you’re not getting married for another year. You should be fine. 🙂

Yes, I’m not too worried about the wedding, just annoyed at the fact that I paid for a bad haircut right now!! I’ve had it really short before, like pixie cut, but then I changed it to grow longer and be shoulder length and I am digging all the options I have.
Except now I am going to have to go shorter to fix this, boooooo on them.

@stephee: My last haircut was terrible, and I cried for days! I had a pixie-cut, but it’d grown to shoulder length, and I just wanted to get it cut back up to chin length. But instead, my hair got cut to 2 inches long. I was mortified. It’s been months, but it’s finally at the length I originally wanted! And I’m never going back to that hairdresser again!
Though I did come to accept it. Unfortunately when they cut it too short there’s nothing you can really do. However, seeing in your case, it’s the style, there’s lots of ways you can change it up. Maybe find a style you like online and take a picture in so they have something to work with.

If it’s in your budget maybe consider getting some extensions?? I had a horrible haircut once (way too short) & was mortified. Thankfully it wasn’t anywhere near the wedding.

I’ve had a few bad haircuts in the past, mostly it was the stylist cutting it too short for my liking. The whole, “oh just a trim, just an inch off please”, apparently translates to 3-4 inches to some hair stylists!
I especially love when the hair stylist has finished cutting your hair, grabs a small mirror so you can see the back and asks if it’s ok. I’m tempted one day to say “no, it’s too short, can you stickytape some length back on please.” Because honestly, what else can you say but “yeh it’s ok”, the hair is gone! Lol.

Ick, I am currently stuck with a bad haircut. 🙁
I normally have really short hair with sidebangs and when my hair grows out I go in to my normal stylist and she cuts it back in that style. Well my normal stylist moved, so I needed to find a new one, it took me months to got get my hair cut cut, and with a short cut that’s a looong time, it was way longer than I ever let it get. Anyway, the stylist initally just picked out everything that was wrong with my hair “You have such a cowlick, and a low hairline, ect..”
Anyway, I gave her a rundown of how I like my hair cut and she chopped my bangs off so they are only like two inches long, I was mortified, I walked outta the salon thinking “That bitch ruined my hair” and I was right, its been over a month and my bangs are just getting long enough. The main probelm, that cowlick she graciously pointed out, yeah, its in the front, so for weeks my bangs pretty much just stood up straight unless wrangled in by a bobby pin.
I try to be laid back about my hair, it will grow back, so no big deal, but I am never going to that salon again. And now I am in depsperate need of another haircut and I am so scared I am going to be stuck with another bad style.

@stephee: yeah, I grew my hair really long for the wedding – it hadn’t been that long since I was 5. after the wedding, I decided to get some layers put in. nothing drastic, just some texture to make it look fuller. I ended up looking like I had a shoulder length bob with a thin layer of hair hanging down from under it. I had to chop it all to my shoulders. I was so annoyed!

@stephee: that sucks. did you get it fixed? how did it turn out?

I basically had to cut it really short so it was all back to one length!! I’ll be happy when it grows out a little.

I’ve had a couple terrible haircuts in life. Good thing about hair is it grows back! I recently got a drastic change- got 7 inches chopped off, but I love it and wouldn’t have trusted any other stylist to do it. Although I’m still working on how best to style it, I’m glad I took the jump and got it cut. Keep your chin up, I’m sure it’s fixable 🙂

I had my haiircut today (a month before my big day) and let me tell you, I am not loving it. I know people tell you you shouldnt go for a drastic change before your wedding but i thought i was ready for it.
I had super long hair but wanted to get it cut into a bob for ages. ABout three months ago i had it cut above my shoulder and i really liked but felt i had to for shorter.
It grew super fast so I went in today thinking i really knew what i wanted. I went right above my chin and omg, I look like Cristopher Colombus. So I am just gonna have to suck it and hope in a month it doesn’t look as silly (hair looks stupid when you just had it cut)
I say embrace it. Find a hairstyle that suits the new you. Play with your hairpiece and your make up. If you make it work, IT WILL.
Plus, you already have someone who loves you, what more could you ask for? 🙂
Cheer up and all the best!

Back in April, I asked for a shoulder length bob. The hairdresser asked about adding layers, and I specifically told her that longer layers around the face were fine but NOT to cut anything chunky or “piecey” because I have fine hair and it just flips all over the place and doesn’t lay right. Guess who wound up with a bunch of chunky layers? 🙁
I let it grow all summer and about a month ago went to a different hairdresser and had her cut my hair into all one length, like I had originally wanted. I’m annoyed that now my hair is above the shoulders and I wanted my hair to be down to mid-back in time for my wedding in August. I’m doing everything I can to avoid cutting it until next summer (and even then, it’ll only be a trim or “dusting”). I’m crossing my fingers it will grow about 6 inches by then!
Your timeline is a little longer than mine, so I think yours will have grown quite a bit by then. 🙂

You’re lucky you have plenty of time for it to grow out, so I would not worry 🙂 I think the worst hair cut I received was when I was growing my bang out. It was in that stage of not quite longenough to pin to the side butl long enough that it would get into my eyes, so I thought I would ask the stylist to give me a swide swept bang so that it would gradually go into my hair. Well, the guy gave me a half a bang and could not fix it. I ended up pinning it above my head until it was long enough to just fall to the side on its own.
ETA: I would probably get a trim about a month before the wedding just in case something went wrong so my hair is healthy but no major changes.
