What to do when a haircut goes wrong


What to do when a haircut goes wrong…

It’s one of our biggest fears, and unfortunately at times, haircuts do go wrong! Either the style is different to what we had envisaged in our minds, or our hair has taken differently to a style cut, or the hairdresser may have gone way too short. So what do you do when a situation like this arises?

Here’s some tips on getting through…

- Firstly, it’s important to recognise that things do go wrong at times, but, doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about it. Take a deep breath, and keep reading.

- Talk to the stylist who performed the cut on your hair. Be honest with them in saying that you were expecting something different.

If you realise the next day after you’ve washed it that it’s not quite right, go back and give the stylist a chance to correct it as much as possible. Most hairdressers have your best interests at heart, and will do what they can (within reason), to ensure you are happy with the cut.

- Consider changing the color or style a little to increase the appeal of your haircut. This may involve some foils, or a darker under-color. Or you could even add some curl in at the bottom, or straighten if your hair is naturally curly to make it that little bit longer.

- If you really need that extra length for a special occasion, you could consider some clip in extensions, or proper hair extensions.

- Accessorise – it’s amazing what some hair accessories can do to lift a somewhat flat hairstyle, or to really give you that bit of extra wow factor. You’d be amazed at how hair accessories can really turn an average, plain hairstyle into something amazing.

TIP: If you’ve got a wedding or something special coming up, try getting your hair cut and styled about 2 weeks before. That way if something doesn’t quite go right, you have time to choose a different style or color, and your hair has the opportunity to grow a little.

While we hope you never have to deal with a bad haircut, they do happen from time to time, it’s important to bring out Plan B, and get creative!
