One of my friends called me last night crying about her "shitty haircut." I asked what happened and she said that she made an appointment, went in early and looked through the salon books, picked out a new style and then got her haircut. It just didn't turn out AT ALL like she wanted...
I was taught long ago that if you want a new hairstyle, you pick out 3 pictures ahead of time then discuss them with your stylist. After I started cutting hair, I realized why that works: People will show you a picture, you can cut their hair EXACTLY like that picture and then they will scream that you shouldn't have/should have layered it/made it shorter/left it longer/blah blah blah. If you have a few different pictures and they show different hairstyles, at least your stylist can talk with you and figure out what it is you REALLY want. I'm sure within these first two paragraphs you have quickly figured out why I'm an EX hairstylist.
I'll leave you with a few examples of why you should know your stylist and exactly what you want:
Who knows what she asked for when she walked in. I bet it wasn't this, judging by the look on her face.
Is she unhappy with the hair or is she emo? I never can tell with kids these days.
Concerning these two: I don't believe for one second that they actually ASKED to have this done, but it doesn't appear that either of them are blind either. So, what would possess them to a)go out in public? and b) let their pictures be taken? Noone knows because you obviously can't just walk up to people and ask them what happened to their hair.
Here is an example of someone who knew what was happening and for some reason sat still long enough for it to take place: I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt and figure it was Halloween:
And last, but not least, the man who knows what he looks like, knows it's not Halloween and walks around in public like this anyway:
