- Wedding: July 2010
I have been an easygoing bride for the past 10 months of wedding planning, I try not to sweat the small stuff, etc, but now I feel like I’m about to hyperventilate. I have been growing my hair out all year, occasionally going in for a little trim to keep the ends healthy. It’s been working out great, I was getting to the stage where I had long flowing hair that I could wear down and a bit wavy for my big day. (I have no interest in an updo.)
This week, however, I was visiting my mother out of town and she said, “Hey, why don’t you get a little haircut while you’re here? I LOVE my stylist.”
I thought it could be fun to try someone new, so I went in, sat down and told her, “long with some slight layers” like I always say. I noticed as she was cutting that she didn’t seem to be paying much attention, but I thought, “well, my mom loves her, I’ll trust her.”
Huge mistake. When all was said and done she had blunt cut two inches off the bottom of my hair and then randomly worked her way around in a shaggy circle four inches above that. The two layers have no relationship to each other, there are random bits sticking out here and there, it’s honestly the most hideous thing I’ve ever seen. As I said, I’m usually pretty easygoing, but for the past three days, every time I look in the mirror I burst into tears.
I’m at a loss for what to do. Can razoring help something like this? Maybe soften the bluntness?
I can’t afford extensions, and am not sure they would do anything anyway, as the damage is all around the outside/top layer of hair.
Is two months enough time for me to have any hope at all? Please help, bees!!
