I feel your pain!! I had to stop going to my stylist of 11 years because she was aging and getting sick. I have naturally curly hair (no perm) but I keep it straight by flat-ironing or pressing it. I tried different salons for about a year. Two salons burned off clumps of my hair and didn’t even say anything! Another one charged me $20 for a quick trim..it seriously took her 5 minutes to trim my ends. And they were all charging like $80-$100. So, I just invested in a really good flat-iron, a good pressing comb, and started trying different products. Two years later, I get compliments on my hair and my hair has grown a lot! As for highlights, I never get them done in the shop! Well, once because my step-mom is a stylist and it was her graduation gift to me. Usually, I just have a friend do it with those highlighting caps with the holes in them.

Just invest in your own stuff and start practicing. YouTube was really helpful for me!

I am having the same problem too. I feel like there is this sense of entitlement around hairdressers and they just don’t give a shit what the customer thinks. In all honesty I don’t mind paying for 80 haircut if it is something I am going to like. Unfortunately since moving away from my old stylist my hair is so uneven and messed up from people chopping away at my hair I have given up.

Yikes, I’m sorry. That woman’s behavior was inexcusable. Everyone has bad days, but you can’t take it out on people! Do you have any friend’s or acquaintances that have nice hair? I’ve been going to my hair stylist for about 8 years. I found out about her through church. A girl I went to church with had really nice hair and I asked her who she went to. I’m so glad I found her. She works for herself and just rents a booth at a small shop. She charges her own prices, but is very cheap. You need to find someone like that! My sylist has a decent sized group of clientele that has been going to her for years. Word of mouth is how she always got new clients!
