@MM423:  I have!  I have curly hair so it’s hard to find someone who can cut it right.  My hairdresser in is North Alabama and I was in college in Southeast Alabama.  I needed a haircut BAD and this girl from my class who also had curly hair recommended someone and I went there.  A little while later, I went back to my normal person and she was like “have you had a haircut recently?” and I said yes, why?  And she goes, because your hair is like 2 inches crooked!  I couldn’t see it because it was in the back.  :/  Haven’t been to anyone else since!

Well, not from a stylist, but when I was 10 I did!!  I had hair to my waist and was learning how to use the round brushes to blow dry my hair.  Well, I rolled my hair around the brush…. and rolled… and rolled…. and it got STUCK!  At my EARS!!  My mom tried desperately to get it undone, but couldn’t.  So, I went from waist length to a short pixie cut!!  I cried and cried and never did that again!!

I was only 10, so I guess I didn’t know any better.  But that’s back in the day when I thought blow drying your hair was called a blow job! 🙂  Good thing I learned that was NOT correct before arriving at middle school… that would have been awful…

omg unfortunately yes.  I went to a new hairdresser because I had moved and my regular one (who I still go to after this happened!) was now a 45 minute drive away.  I have very thick hair, and I had asked her to thin it out…normal request right?  Well she cut away and it looked good!  Until I got home.  I was playing around with my hair, looking at the highlights and then I realized that she had THINNED out my hair.  I gathered it all up to put into a ponytail and I kid you not, it was about the thickness of an udon noodle.  I could not believe how much hair she cut.  Basically I had a mullet/rat tail.  I was pissed!!! Luckily that was last summer, and my hair grows fast, but had it been closer to the wedding I would have made her pay for extensions to thicken my hair back out. Yell

Yep.  I went to get my hair cut after having it so long.  It was the month before I met Fiance in ’09.  I told the girl what I wanted and it came out COMPLETELY different.  She didn’t advise of anything.  She didn’t talk to me the entire time.  Pretty much did whatever she wanted.  I have a problem with that because when i take my glasses off, I can’t see what you’re doing to my hair.  It was so damn short – I felt like I looked like a boy.  I refused to get my hair cut until today actually.  FI’s stylist is really good and she was so nice throughout the entire thing.  If she wanted me to look at how much she was cutting off, she’d tell me to put my glasses back on.  She told me what would look best on me and she couldn’t be any more right.

Well, I’ve got nothing as bad to report as some you.  OMG! I never read magazines or get distracted while my hair is being cut.  I watch them like a hawk and I question every single move.  If they think I’m controlling, oh fucking well-it’s my hair! lol

Still, I can’t find anyone here in Maine who can cut my hair decently.  There’s always one side longer than the other.  I haven’t found one person yet who actually checks their work.  My hairdresser lives in LA and I sometimes think it’s worth the money to fly out to get my hair done. Color too.  I’ve been told that the water is different here and that’s why I get those brassy streaks. WTF?  I’ve never heard of such a thing!

Anyway, I recently headed off a bad haircut because I went to someone different just for a minor trim and I didn’t want to drive into the city.  I walk in and I’ve never seen this guy before and he wants me to go to the shampoo station without a consult. WTF? How the hell was he supposed to know what I wanted once it was soaking wet, plus how would he get an idea of how I wear it, texture, etc.  I almost left.  But it turned out okay.  Slightly crooked though:)

@Running Elley: I’ve dyed my hair black too.  A few times.  Hah.  Luckily, the last time that I did it ended up fading on it’s own back to my normal color of red.  How that happened?  I have NO flippin’ idea.

@PutABirdOnIt: The water up at my lake place JACKS my hair with color, it gets all sorts of red/brass in it. You should try out Malibu Wellness Actives Crystal Gel Professional Normalizer. You can get it done at a salon, but I personally apply it myself in the shower (after horror story #2). Wrap my hair in saran wrap and a warm towl/apply blow dryer heat, and then rinse out and my hair is back to its happy, natural blonde. If your water is messing with your color, it’s worth a try 🙂

@Rouquine:Lol your hair just knew! I’ve thought about it since the last experience (I get so bored so easily that I have a super hard time keeping my hair one color) but I just look at the pictures and I remember!

@PutABirdOnIt: I don’t anymore! I had been going to that stylist since I was a baby, basically and a was a bit too comfortable with her. I trusted her to do what she said, big mistake. I finally found a fabulous stylist in Vegas and she’s moving back to her home state somewhere in the midwest. And so the hunt begins again…

@mrsrangrang: That’s exactly what happened to me.  I was devastated.  Sorry you had a similiar experience!  Your hair will look fabulous by the time your wedding comes around.  It’s also funny that you say that you’ll grow your hair out and then get a good bit of it cut off.  I’m the same way.

@indibee: Really?  I thought that was a load of crap.  I will check out that product.  The color is just never quite…right.  I have dark blonde hair that I highlight and lowlight.  I want caramel and I end up with..rust.  Not good. lol

@Aure: That’s a good thing!  You can just never let your guard down for a single second.  Not even with someone you know.  I just feel like when it comes to hair there’s no such thing as too much communication.  And good luck in your search-you’d think getting a simple haircut wouldn’t be so damn difficult!

I had a bad bangs experience when I gave them to myself lol I thought I could swing it but I was wrong.

I have this thing about bangs. I love the idea of them but whenever I get them, I just pin them back in a barette lol  I hate the feeling of hair in my face. So I’ve finally learned my lesson and control any urges for bangs now.  I’m definitely a pony tail girl but when I go out somewhere nice, I’ll leave it down.

The worst was uneven bangs. I then had a friend even them out and after that the bangs were rather short.
