Simple. If they hurt me or are less than gentle, I let them know. They’ll get over it.

I would just be honest with them! They may feel a little embarassed at first, but if they are remotely professional, they should apologize and do it ‘properly’. If she still continues to hurt your head then I say find someone else!

That’s like a basic hair styling technique that ALL hairdressers should know to do…. My hair is also super knotty and if my hairdresser ever did that (which he wouldnt because it’s like hair combing 101) I would definately tell him!

I could never imagine doing this to anyone. If I were hurting a client I would want them to tell me. I usually ask those types of questions before I brush though. Speak up and let them know; if they dont like it they dont deserve your business!

I just let them know. I had a hairdresser do this once and I (as politely as I could) let her know that it was hurting. This is also why I have a hairdressr I always go to! My hair is straight and fine, but even then I’ve had hair dressers tug on it roughly. Sometimes I think that they just on’t realize that it hurts.

this happens to me ALL THE TIME. 

i don’t have curly hair, pretty much straight and maybe a slight wave, but very long and hairdressers kill me every time.

no matter what i say or how much they complain, it doesn’t get better, they just don’t know how to do it and insist on using a small comb, when it is incredibly hurtful. i NEED a brush! it’s so much quicker and less hurtful.

Tell them. If they get pissy I would walk out and not pay them. You’re PHYSICALLY HURTING ME, hello, not ok. I’ve been lucky with pretty experienced hairdressers, once they start finding a lot of snaggles they automatically switch techniques.

ETA: and they were all at cheapo under $25 a cut kind of places.

I would let them know and I would not return. The stylist should be maintaining the integrity of your hair. Period.

I would definitely let them know. They shouldn’t be pissy about it, and, if they are, they don’t deserve your business. An honest mistake is one thing, but refusing to correct it when asked is another.

Definitely let them know. I’ve had one so bad that even after she ‘tried’ to stop, I just asked her for the comb myself. Now I just get ‘dry cuts’ and don’t have them shampoo my hair before hand. If you ask them to be gentler and they don’t, that’s their problem they’re losing business. They should do all that they can to keep the customer happy (and pain-free). No one knows your hair like you do.
