Re: I Went To The Hair Salon Today

I had an appointment scheduled for mid June before everything shut down. My cut and style is such that I can go longer without a trim than some people. I offered to give my appointment to someone else if necessary, but my stylist worked early and late every day for a week to catch up with clients so I kept my appointment. When I went she & I were the only people in her small salon. We both had masks on. I do my own highlights at home.

Re: I Went To The Hair Salon Today

I went to my hair girl last Monday----my last cut was the end of January. all went well--got my hair trimmed  in a blunt cut----so no frilly, flippy extra nonsense to deal with---she said she wasn't going to charge me as I was in her chair for 20 minutes---I gave her $25. this could be the last hair cut I get this year with this virus thing erupting-----needed a easy style in that case------but was good to see a new face--or upper face anyway. Smiley Frustrated

I got my hair cut and colored a couple of weeks ago.  I absolutely detest the cut.

@PilatesLover I'm sorry you got a haircut you don't like, I've been there too. You should tell her how unhappy you are, if you don't say anything she won't know. I got my hair cut yesterday, my stylist is very nice, she listens to me. I had my hair cut a little differently, she said let's do a little less, if you like it next time we can do more. I had a stylist that was scissor happy, he would cut my hair shorter than I liked and then show me the back of my head. It's too late by then you can't put the hair back on.

So sorry to read your story....we've all been there.

 

Not sure WHY these things happen, but it seems many stylists do NOT listen.  I've given firm measurements and still had them mess up.

 

Take heart...it will grow back soon.

@Witchy Woman I read in an article not to tell your stylist you want two inches cut off, it is better to show her how much to cut. Your two inches and her two inches can be different. Yesterday I showed my stylist how much to cut, I thought it was two inches, she said it was four ( she compromised and cut three inches, they gauge it by the lines on their index finger each quadrant is an inch).

I should have said I tell her and show her and give approval before she makes the first cut by watching her in the mirror.

 

I've had more bad cuts than not.  Sometimes, even with all of the above.

Re: I Went To The Hair Salon Today

I'm with you, @AngelPuppy1.   I haven't had a haircut since early Febr and my hair is driving me crazy!   I had almost talked myself into going to my salon.... should I?  or shouldn't I?  .....then Covid cases started spiking and some businesses closed again this week.

 

Guess I'm going to have to live with my long, uneven hair.

I know!  I just can't make myself go!  I'm at least glad I can pull it up in a clip!  My bangs --- uh -- what bangs?? Maybe this will give me the opportunity to sort of let them grow out and do something else with them!
