What's the worst thing you could imagine your hair stylist/barber doing to your hair?
Accidents do happen, especially when an hair stylist talks too much as not to notice that the chemical mix he was using had actually found its way down my back. Fortunately, no harm done.
It could be worse. So let's hear it!
One of the worst things a hairdresser can do, for the MOST part, is to follow EXACTLY what the client in the chair has asked for or to follow their unprofessional direction.
I have a great stylist and she is pretty good at suggesting hairstyles. However, if I were to think of one in general, it would be cutting hair shorter than desired.
I have had this happen! I told my new stylist(I was in a town that I didn't live in) that I wanted red hair. I am a natural brown head so I knew she would have to bleach it somewhat. She bleached it so much that it turned orange! Luckily, she was able to tone it to a warm pretty red. But the damage that was done left my hair like straw. She did offer complimentary deep conditioning treatments but since I was only visiting, I couldn't take her up on this offer.
I have found that by bringing in several pictures of the style or cut that you want rather than just by describing what you want, you will achieve better results. What you define as "just a little off" can leave you scalped!
I completely agree with you! A picture of the kind of hairstyle you want goes a long way in explaining to the stylist what exactly you want. I've experienced a bad haircut despite of my best efforts to explain to the stylist what I wanted!
Oh, I think it happened to me already. Years ago I was getting ready for a job interview. I went to a harir salont and of course I could not see what the stylist was doing till she was done. I can see nothing without my glasses on.
So when she was done, there was not one hair on my head that was the same length!!! It was a disaster. The only good thing about it was that there was enough hair left so that I could go to a different salon and get it fixed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The next worst time was when I was having my hair dyed red and it came out dark grape purple....not a happy camper...the good news is...it could be re-dyed....not really life shattering....but not my greatest moments either....
My hair have a little too much of volume, so they are at a perpetual risk of looking 'puffed up' after a haircut. So, too many short layers would end up making my hair in the shape of a pyramid - a strict no no!
Chopping it off! i would sue them, granted my hairs not mega long, but still i like it
I'm usually not too picky about what they do with my hair. I'd freak out if they cut it way too short. I won't go for anything shorter than shoulder length.
My biggest hair salon fear is that--and I have to say, I don't know any one that this has happened to, though growing up I may have seen it in a movie--but, my worst fear is going to a salon, sitting down for a perm and waiting as the chemicals slowly and painfully burn my hair completely off. Now, my hair isn't long to begin with but beneath the braids it is mine and so, I'm attached to it.
I can vividly see the images: the stylist wouldn't notice it while I was sitting in the chair and lathered. No, we would both notice as a mixture of pink bubbles, cream foam, and black strands slid down the drain.
First off, cool picture! Anyway, I tell this story about my sort-of phobia (not really a fear, but horrible experience) about a barbershop encounter when people ask me why I cut my own hair. The last time I was in a barbers chair, which was about 4 years ago now, I asked the barber to cut me close; however, I instructed him I didn't want to be near bald. This fool, and I don't know if it was a dare or something from the other barbers, pulls out his clippers and goes against the grain, then, has the nerve to say, verbatim, "like this?" I was just sitting there like, did he just ask that? He didn't just say that? Did he? Naw, he couldn't have? He knows he can't just make my hair grow right back, so why... I was livid, seriously. I was like "whatchu mean like this? You already cut as low as you wanted, but what about me?" He's like "you said close." And that was that. I couldn't do anything. He couldn't do anything. I was left with a cut, near bald, and had to make the best of it. Good question.
