You know that feeling when you go to get a 2 inch trim but the hair stylist cuts off 3? GASP! I know, it can be shocking.
You should take a deep breath and re-assess the situation. I understand if you cry because you’re really upset when someone messes up your hair, but you’ll survive.
Why are we so afraid to part ways with our hair? It’ll grow back eventually. And if it doesn’t, or if it grows back too slowly for your liking, there are ways to combat the issue.
Extensions, wigs, accessories and new styles are just a few things to consider if your hair looks like a bird’s nest and you’re just not liking it.
Your hair cut, style and/or color can be powerful. It can make you feel like you’re on top of the world and like a whole different person.
If you know you don’t like your hair cut or styled a certain way, make sure you do everything you can to try to prevent something you know you don’t like from happening. For example, if you hate layers, make sure you’re specific on telling a hair stylist that you absolutely do not want layers whatsoever.
If you’re going to go for a drastic hair change, be prepared for it. Going from jet black to platinum blonde is a big deal in terms of maintenance. Not only that, but it’ll make you think about your makeup and wardrobe differently.
If you’re chopping 8 inches off and you’ve never had short hair before, educate yourself on how to take care of it. It may require more maintenance than you’d think.
And most of all, if you want 2 inches cut and only 2 inches, be clear. But if you say that and you notice 3 inches was cut, be vocal but don’t worry too much. Maybe a little change is a good thing. (Or maybe next time you should just go to a different hair stylist or say you want 1 inch cut off).
