((HUGS)) it will definitely grow back, don’t worry about it, that’s terrible that this happened, you should definitely let her know though that she cut too much.

My hair was chin length the year before my wedding! I hacked it all off totally not expecting to get engaged that year… I thought I had at least 4 years! I had it cut it May, got engaged in October, and married the following May. It was plenty long enough for the style I had! (it was about shoulder length). Your hair sounds like it will definitely be long enough for just about anything you might want. Don’t worry 🙂 Besides, hairstylists work magic!

She definitely shouldn’t have cut it off without checking. HOWEVER, maybe it was SO damaged it needed to be done?

Keep it extra healthy. It’ll still look lovely and it won’t be straggly. I had to have more hair “trimmed” (like 2 inches) b/c she said my hair was a wreck and it woudl look longer if it was healthier b/c it wouldh’t keep breaking!

I bet it still looks lovely =]

Aw Jillbean, I’m sorry. I feel so vulnerable when I get my hair cut because I wear glasses too and just can’t monitor when I can’t see. I think you’re really supposed to get your hair trimmed every six weeks, which may be why you have to cut so much at your trims. If it’s really just a trim, $10 at supercuts with a firm “1/4″ and no more!” commandment should do it.

sorry about that. she really shouldn’t have taken that much of. i continue to get trims every 8 weeks even tho i’m growing it out for the wedding – just to keep it healthy.

if you’re worried about it growing fast enough, how about trying prenatal vits and biotin? i’ve been taking biotin for about a month now. still not sure it really works or if it’s a placebo thing.

The exact same thing happened to me, I’ve been growing out my hair for the wedding and it was so long I could almost sit on it, and the stylist took off seven inches when I asked for her to trim the ends.  I got some of the same responses here about how she should have checked and the ends might have been dead, etc etc.  The ends were not dead (well, technically all our hair is dead skin cells isn’t it? but my ends were fine) and she cut off more than she showed me, and because I can’t see without my glasses I couldn’t keep track of what she was doing.  She was totally in the wrong.  I told her it was too short but I paid and left anyway because it was too late.

That was several months ago and my hair has grown back some of its length, hair grows 1/2″ every month and sometimes more in the summer, there is absolutely nothing you can do to make it grow faster sadly.  Apparently pregnant women end up with faster hair growth but its a myth that prenatal vitamins do it.  I did the math and I’ll grow back at least five inches by the wedding, but I’m fine with what I have now I think.

I know exactly how it feels, its very very frustrating and it made me so sad since I’ve been growing out my hair for so long and spent so much money on nice conditioners, going through a bottle a week, etc.  But it will grow back!  You may not even notice in a month, that’s what happened to me.

I’m surprised that she cut that much off without checking with you first.  I was going to ask if this was a new stylist, but you said that you’ve gone to her before.  What a bummer!

I’m sure it’s frustrating to lose all that length that you’ve been working for.  However, at least you have enough time to get some good length going in the next few months.  FWIW, my hairstylist told me that she often sees brides who grown their hair out much longer than they actually need to in order to achieve a specific look.  In fact, I ended up taking a couple of inches off of mine just before the wedding, because the length was a little longer than I wanted/needed.
