    Posted: October 23 2006 at 7:11am
Hi,
 
I'm a little depressed with my new haircut. It's too short, especially in the back. I'm not sure what to do about it. I DO NOT want to cut it any shorter. Initially I had a chin length bob, all one length. I asked for long layers and overall trim that would fit my wavy hair. I usually air dry my hair because it's been damaged with bleach. I explained all this to the hairstylist but apparently she did not listen to my request. The stylist cut way too much hair - she sliced A LOT of hair from the bottom... I was so horrified!!! The layers are longer in the front and sides than the back. This hairstyle is best for someone with natural straight hair. This new cut is time consuming and requires daily blowdrying and straightening, which is not what I wanted!!!!!! I don't have all the time in the world to style my hair... I'm a busy mom and student, so go figure! Does anyone have any advise... I'll really appreciate it. I also told the stylist that I'm trying to grow my hair longer, maybe shoulder length because I've had short hair for a while so I'm getting tired of it. Plus I have a round face, so hair longer than chin length fits my face shape best. BTW... I went to TONY&GUY because I've read rave reviews about their haircuts, but I did not get what I expected. The more I think about it the sadder I get. Lately I've had bad haircut experiences at salons, I don't know what it is. I'm starting to doubt the skill of these "highly trained" hairstylists. Please help me.... (I do have a picture of my new haircut, but I don't know how to post it here...)

Sorry you don't like your hair.  Personally, I like the style - is that you?  Your eyes can't really be that blue.  Anyway, if this is a real photo (kind of hard to determine since it is so blurry) you got a cut that is popular at the moment.  Toni and Guy, and other places like that, specialize in the "current" cut of the time.  Really not a whole lot that you can do with it - though I don't think it looks bad - in fact, looks cute.

Hey...
 
Yeah, this is me. My eyes are really brown, not blue. I'm wearing color contacts here. Anyway, I think at this point all I can do is leave it alone and let it grow out. I really hate short layers in the back and longer layers on the sides and front. I wished the stylist had cut them all even. It would have made a difference. I don't think she considered my hair type. My hair doesn't style naturally like this, because it's got some wave, so if I don't blow dry/straighten it looks completely different. It's time consuming and that annoys me.

Maybe you should just cut it really short, abover your ears. It would look nice on you, you have the face for really short hair.

Well, I don't think my husband will approve of that. I can't go any shorter. I was thinking of using hair extensions, but I'm afraid that will damage my hair even more. The only good thing about this cut is that it got rid of some damaged hair...

I pretty sure this is not what you want to hear but your hair looks great.  It's an upto date style that is sexy and trendy.  If all the layers were even I think you would have pretty much a bob. 

I know it may not be what you had hoped for and for that you should be upset but you could have got a cut you dind't like and looked bad.  I guess what I'm saying is I like it!

Can you post a picture with your natural wave?

Yes would be nice to see it wavy, I think it looks good to. Could always play with hair clips and things also.  
Go for it change is good, Hair grows back.

I agree with Hal. You look very pretty with this haircut. But I afraid you dont have lots of choices, you have to style your hair every time you wash it. I have wavy hair and inverted bob, and I have to blow dry my hair every time I wash it in order to get it straight. I also have to use an iron to get rid of some persisting waves. Several months ago I got too short cut with lots of layers. It was a nightmare, coz I could not style it at all. Cry For several days I just wanted to go back and cut it to pixy. But somehow I realized that it will not solve my problem. Anyway, now I am back to my length that I am comfortable with.Smile

 So If you dont like your haircut (which it really good on you) I would sagest you to wait till your hair grow out. And as soon as you style your hair, I also sagest you to use heat protecting products. You also can try to play with hair accessories, but on my experience it is not a big help (at least for me).   

Best wishes.

Hello Hal,
 
Thank you... Do you have any idea what this haircut is called? I will post a picture with the waves, it doesn't look anything like this!

Hi Dontno,
 
Thanks for the advise. I think you're right. At this point there isn't anything I can do. I was thinking of getting it fixed with another haircut, but that's only going to make it shorter. I'm very afraid of haircutters - AGAIN! I'm just going to play with hair accesories and products... what else can I do...

LOL! A lot of people seem to like this haircut, but I would prefer it longer because of my hair type. It's wavy, so it shrinks and gets frizzy. If I had naturally straight hair I wouldn't mind it at all. When it's salon styled it sure looks great. Unfortunately this cut isn't at-home-styling friendly.

Florida is a big state.  :-)  Your best bet is to ask for referrals from friends or just someone you see whose hair you like.  If they have a similar hair type as you, all the better.  People are usually very flattered if you go up to them and say - hey, great hair, who's your stylist?

Hi strawberiblonde,
 
The thing is, nobody in my family does their hair. Everyone has boring flat hair, either one length long hair or one length medium hair. I seem to be the only one that plays and experiments with her hair (cuts and color)... at a price of course! I don't really like one length hair because of my hair type, and it makes me look fatter. I need layers, and I don't mind them as long as they are cut the right way. In 15 years I've had two (three at the most) GREAT haircuts I loved. The rest have been aweful. How's that for bad luck? Once a trusted hairstylist was unable to recreate the same haircut, I had to switch...
 
I'm looking for a great, experienced hairstylist in the central florida area... if anyone can recommend someone, let me know. Thanks in advance!

     Wink Hey, Abby, you're a cutie no matter. I'm sorry that you got a bad cut, but live and learn. My wife has not darkened a salon door for over 5 years, and it is stories such as yours which are responsible for this. Your hair will look good soon, I'm sure. Blessings, Bob
