Im so upset right now. Not really sure what to do.

I was on my lunch break at work on friday. It was coming up to my six week trim for my hair which i had now been growing.
I managed to get the front down to below my jaw and around collar bone lengh (id gues around 12 inchs ish)
I work silly hours and never get a chance to go to the hairdressers often. Anyway im moving 300 miles away in the next few weeks and as i was next to a hairdressers on my break i thought id go in and get my trim.

It was quite a small salon with two memebers of staff, and older lady and a man.
The lady sat me down and asked me what i wanted done. i told her my regular trim.
She started commenting on how lovely my natural hair colour was that was growing through, i have about 2-3 inchs of routs grow through.
I told her i was planning on growing out the bleached part slowly and she agreed it was a good idea.

So after washing my hair and sitting me down in the chair she gave me a magazine to read.
She brushed my hair through and i figured she was going to section it off as she lifted the top hair up between her fingers, so i didnt pay too much attention, Then all of a sudden snip..twelve inchs of my blonde hair was on my lap.

I look up and shes cut all of the blonde hair away down to the routes on the top of my head.
I didnt know what to do, I couldnt tell her to stop as the damage was done.

I thought well maybe she would cut it into a nice pixie cut.

Ive ended up with almost a grade 2 on the sides and the front and about 2-3 inchs of hair left on top.

i look like a boy.

I do have some wigs i could wear but my bf gets freaked out by them.

i know itll grow back eventually..but stil in shock at the moment and hate what she has done to me :-(

OMG...so sorry.  How horrible.

One thought...load up on cute headbands, scarves, loose knit beanies, caps, hats....it helps. 

Thanks for sharing.  Let us know if we can help. 
That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger or drives you totally insane. :-)

Yep ive been rocking the one headband that i own. I will need to buy a load more to get me through winter i think.
My hair normally grows very quickly so hopefully a few mobnths and it will be decent enough to look like a nice pixie.

     IF your story is true, and you really didn't ask for this, you should sue the business and the person who butchered your hair. I've heard of disgusting unwarranted hack jobs before, but this is beyond extreme.
