    "WHOOPS!"

    My grandma decided to take me to this hair place, because apparently they were really good and the owners were Greek (my whole family is Greek).  I was sitting in the chair, wearing that horrible cape that almost strangles me every time.  My hair is really thick, so...

    I went to a place where all the hairdressers were  supposed to be experienced and very good. i ask the guy who was going to cut my hair to cut my hair like some girl of a magazine he had, it had a fringe, it wasn't too long, neither too short. This guy was so distracted...

    Experiencing "Bad Haircut Depression"

    I went to get my hair cut the night before a date with my boyfriend (mistake #1) at this no-name place in my neighborhood (mistake #2). The fact that the woman who initially started cutting my hair couldn't speak English (mistake #3) should've tipped me off, but she quickly...

    A Bad Haircut Is Bad Enough, But a Too Short and Bad Haircut Is the Worst!

    On Friday I went to a pricey salon to get my hair (which was a few inches past shoulder length) trimmed up into a nice shoulder length bob.  My hair is very thick and I requested to not have visible layers because they make my hair appear even thicker.  I am now stuck...

    Two

    I've gotten a lot of bad haircuts. The two worst were as follows: I went to the very expensive hair place in town. I wanted a little bit cut off but not much. The lady turned me around as sort of a "surprise" I guess. She cut off seven inches. I had, roughly, three...

    I'm Too Young to Look Like Jane Fonda.

    I had Alice in wonderland waist length blonde hair and blunt bangs. I decided I wanted to grow my bangs out and shorten my lenth. I told the stylist to bring then length to three inches below my shoulders and layer the back. She feathered the bangs ok, but then she cut it to my...
