How To Deal With A Bad Haircut
Have you ever found yourself leaving the salon with a cut that was not exactly what you wanted or was and now you realize that you made a mistake? Well here are some helpful ways to deal with a bad haircut.
Wash Your Hair
You never really know how a hairstyle looks until you start from scratch and try it yourself. We firmly believe stylists actually go to some special school and develop magical hair powers, which is why we can never make our hair look the same as when it’s freshly cut. Wash it and try to style it yourself to get the best hair possible.
Let Bobby Pins Become A Way Of Life
Even though bobby pins have a way of disappearing before our very eyes (really, though, where do they all go?), you can use the little tools to create some pretty neat hairstyles — no hair tie or hair length necessary.
Try New Styles
Unfortunately, you’re stuck with this cut until your hair grows out. Make the best of it by trying new styles, products or tools. Don’t be afraid to dust off the crimper that’s been hiding under your bathroom cabinet for a decade.
Master The Top Knot
Placing a bun on top of your head is basically the solution to everything. If you still have the length, try to perfect the top knot, messy bun, or the ballerina bun to disguise a less-than-perfect haircut.
Big headbands look great on everyone and can cover up those annoying short layers that simply won’t reach all the way to your bun.
Step Up Your Accessory Game
This is more of a distraction mechanism, but who’s to say your crush won’t notice your chunky necklace or statement earrings before he/she notices your bangs? Also, retail therapy always helps.
Don’t Be Afraid Of Hurting Your Stylist’s Feelings
If you don’t like the cut, tell your stylist. It’s not going to hurt her feelings and she can even learn from your style. In my case, my hairstylist did a great job with the cut, I just didn’t like it! Now we both know to never try bangs again.
Braids Are Best
Braids > everything. If you haven’t mastered French braiding or the fishtail braid yet, now is the time. You can have bangs, layers, or length with a good braid style.
Celebrate The Good Hair Days
As you’re trying new styles or watching your hair grow back out to its norm, remember to remain optimistic. Maybe even get a little too excited about when you love the way your hair looks. Every reason is a good reason to have a mini-dance party.
