    Just get it corrected professionally! I don’t get embarrassed about stuff like that anymore. What’s the stylist going to do? Flog you? Kick you out? Call the media? It’ll be fine!

    Shesaidyes :  Get a knife with a loop on the end so you can attach it to a carabiner on your harness! I have had that knife come in handy like a million times! And I’m not a bad ass, I’m the idiot who let her hair get sucked into her ATC.. total noob 😂

    i cut my bangs for a while and one day went a littttle too far and my bangs ended up wrapping around to my ears.  It was terrible. 😛

    I had no choice but to let it grow out.

    You, though, can have your hair fixed completely if you go to a stylist and fess up, so that’s what i’d do.

    don’t be embarassed – its not like you got a lightbulb stuck in your butt or something…. a bad self haircut really isn’t all that crazy/out of the ordinary/cringe worthy

     

    just have a pro fix it for you and don’t do any more damage trying to fix it at home

    If you’re embarrassed that your DIY hair cut didn’t go as well as planned, why offer any explanation at all?

    If the stylist has any sense of professionalism  they won’t further embarrass you by asking questions. If they do ask how this happened you just reply:

    “You wouldn’t believe it if I told you”

    That will leave them guessing for sure!!

    Ugh I’ve botched my own hair many times. I finally promised a friend a few years ago that I would never try to cut or color my own hair again. 😂 She holds me to it. 

    And my hair has never been happier. It used to quiver with fear when I walked past a pair of scissors or the hair dye aisle in a drug store. 

    Good luck with your fix! It will look great with a little professional TLC.

    So you’re happy to post what you did on the internet complete with photos for the whole world to see yet you are embarrassed to go to a professional to sort who will have seen this a million times over??!!

    Am I missing something here?

    Ah no big deal, I’ve been cutting my own hair for years and years, my mom used to cut my hair at home so I guess I never got used to going to a professional. I find it extremely boring and a completely unnecessary cost, so much more convenient 5 minutes at home. I have long fine hair so it’s pretty easy to gather and trim off the ends. However on occasion it has ended up kind of uneven and I get a friend or husband to help even it out. I get highlights/lowlights at salons a couple of times a year and I always tell the hairdressers I cut my own hair and ask if it’s uneven. If it did end up super uneven I would just go to the hairdresser and ask them to fix it. I don’t understand what’s so embarrassing about it all. No shame in trying to save money!

    However I’ve stopped cutting a fringe on myself, regrettable everytime and doesn’t suit me at all, everytime I just let it grow out until I could style it side swept.

    just go to a professional to get it fixed, heck even a great clips could probably even it out for 20 bucks. 

    i think hairstylist have seen it all these days, ive been one of those people. Ive dyed my hair a few different colors, even tried to go blonde myself one time (DONT DO THIS). 

    the blonde hair dying experience is what taught me to never do anything extreme myself ever again. Took $400 to fix that bad hair day.
