My hair went from waist-length to just-below-the-shoulders. This was not intentional. Nope. I went for my annual haircut as a little birthday treat to myself and instead of taking 3 inches off the ends the hairdresser chopped off 6 inches. And my fringe is still wonky.
I’m a little upset about it. OK, not a little, quite a lot.
I have paid good money for this haircut and it was not what I asked for at all. The appointment was rather rushed and I was in shock when I saw it. But what can you say? It’s not like they can put the hair back on. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. And years and years worth of growing my hair and now this…
My hair hasn’t been this short in years. For good reason too. I don’t think I suit short hair and I enjoy feeling my hair on the back of my elbows in the summer. It’s fun to have long hair.
But no, for some reason hairdressers all over the country (and possibly the world) think it is OK to chop off as much as they like. And there isn’t jack we can do it about.
Except not go to the hairdressers, which is what I normally choose to do.
I hate going to the hairdressers.
So not only has my hair been chopped short but my blunt fringe is still at an angle. I don’t understand why. This is the second time in 6 months that a hairdresser has attempted to trim my fringe and it’s been done badly. Last time they chopped too far back into my hair, this time it’s wonky.
Even more upsetting is the poor blow-dry I received afterwards. I was looking forward to big, bouncy, healthy-looking hair ready for my birthday celebrations that evening. But instead I ended up with a flat, lifeless style that looked worse than what I can achieve at home.
I wrote an email to the hairdressers responsible complaining about their service but they have not responded. They don’t care. I am gutted that I have spent £65 of my very limited funds. It has been an utter waste. I might as well have taken the cash out and pushed it down the drain.
What is a girl supposed to do? Do I resign myself to bad haircuts for the rest of my life?
For now I just need to get used to this length and pray that my hair grows back again quickly. Or I need to find some extensions and dye them red.
