“I had been to that salon two occasions prior. It was all proper the opposite occasions when the identical stylist had reduce my hair. I noticed this TikTok recommending hairstyles for males and I received impressed to go get my hair reduce. I confirmed it to her and she or he stated it was doable. I don’t know what occurred, however not solely did it look nothing like the image, it was uneven and badly reduce.
I used to be in shock. When she took out the mirror to let me see the again of my head I believed she wasn’t achieved but. I couldn’t consider what to say. Perhaps it wanted to be washed and styled? A part of me needed to say one thing however the different half simply needed her to cease touching my hair and simply go away. I paid and left as rapidly as I might.
After I received house, I instantly washed my hair, hoping that it could look higher, but it surely didn’t. I noticed that the entrance was somewhat uneven, so I attempted to trim it somewhat myself however I don’t assume it helped in any respect. I made a few TikTok videos about my expertise and a few salons and barbers reached out to me providing to repair my hair. In the long run, I went to a barber to get my hair reduce once more. It was positively a lot shorter than I might have appreciated, however there was not a lot alternative. A minimum of I might go away the home with out a cap on! My hair’s nonetheless fairly brief now and I plan to simply let it develop out earlier than doing something with it once more.”
“Throughout my salon expertise, I used to be handed between three totally different stylists as a result of they had been overbooked. They didn’t get the hair colour tone proper (it was imagined to be bleach blonde) and I left unknowingly with a harsh, uneven reduce.
I’d been going to this hair salon for nearly two years. I needed to change hairstylists as a result of their charges assorted on expertise stage. I used to be at the moment paying the very best fee as a result of I used to be with the stylist with probably the most expertise. They determined to change me to somebody newer in order that I might pay a decrease fee.
I’d been making an attempt to get my hair more and more lighter, and the brand new stylist I used to be switched to was supposedly wonderful at this. For my appointment, I requested for a balayage colour in bleach blonde and a V reduce. As an alternative, I acquired a shade of blonde that, sadly, appeared fairly brassy, in addition to an uneven reduce with the underside layer peeking out under the remainder of my hair.
Apparently, my session was taking longer than anticipated, so a number of folks started engaged on my hair. One stylist trimmed my hair for a bit, after which needed to go assist one other patron. Then, a 3rd stylist came visiting and I didn’t notice the trimming wasn’t achieved as a result of she blow-dried my hair and styled it. I couldn’t see the again, so I had no concept it wasn’t even, and so they curled it, which made it even tougher to inform.
The subsequent day at work, certainly one of my coworkers requested me about it. I had no concept up till that second. After I received house, I had my husband take a photograph and emailed the salon instantly. They provided to get me in subsequent week to do one other spherical of colour and reduce free of charge.”

“On the salon, I requested for some chunky bangs that hit my eyebrows, as I’m a fan of the messy layered hair look. I advised the stylist that I needed a thicker kind of bang that got here all the way down to my eyebrows so I might curl them shorter or go away them longer if I needed to, and she or he nodded. However then she sprayed my hair and reduce my bangs whereas moist, and that’s once I ought to have recognized.
I even requested her, ‘Are you certain they gained’t get reduce too brief?’ and she or he reassured me. She then straightened my hair, even the bangs. At first, I used to be simply shocked due to how I appeared with my straightened hair and didn’t assume a lot of the reduce. It wasn’t till I went out to my automobile and checked out it once more that I noticed how brief and uneven my bangs had been. Then I cried. I cried your entire manner house and I filmed a Tik Tok video in my driveway as quickly as I received house.
I didn’t inform the hairdresser, as I didn’t notice how horrible the bangs had been till I used to be in my automobile. If I might return, I nonetheless don’t know if I might have advised her. I’ve been frightened these days that she has seen my video, because it has over 200,000 views, and my city is small. I concern I’ll already be a subject of dialogue there. So there I used to be, with a mutilated bang and certainly one of my greatest buddies’ weddings to go to as a bridesmaid.
It’s been a month and the bangs are nonetheless fairly brief, but it surely’s a joke to inform ― albeit traumatic ― and now I do not know the place to go get my hair reduce on the town.”
“I requested for a fluffy ’90s layered haircut, mainly ‘The Rachel’ however at collarbone size. As an alternative, I received an excellent choppy and chunky layered reduce that’s cheekbone size. Actually, there’s no identify for the haircut, it’s only a mess. I didn’t say something to the hairdresser as a result of I used to be in shock. I couldn’t converse.
I went again to the salon to get my haircut mounted the perfect they may however with a distinct stylist and I by no means spoke to the unique stylist once more. Because the haircut, which hasn’t totally grown out but, I’ve been utilizing rosemary oil each time I wash my hair [to help with growth]. I don’t wash my hair as typically and I’ve been giving myself scalp massages. I’ve began taking hair nutritional vitamins as nicely, but it surely’s going to take a while for it to develop out.”
“Initially, I requested for curtain bangs and layers within the again. As an alternative, I received… I don’t know what to name it. Fringed bangs that go from one ear to the opposite. I had given the hairdresser three pictures of how I needed my hair to look. When she reduce half of my hair brief, that’s once I began to interrupt down. I requested her to again away from me. A supervisor got here to me. In the long run, I advised her to chop the opposite facet the identical, since I now not had a alternative.
Till the hair grows, I’m following some methods my boyfriend’s aunt (who’s a hairstylist) confirmed me with the intention to cover the unevenness. Additionally, I’ve been pinning the edges or gelling them down. Typically I put on a hair band with the intention to hold the edges in place with the bangs exhibiting.”
“I requested the barber for a excessive bald fade with a line-up within the entrance. As an alternative, I received a low bald fade the place the strains had been nonetheless seen. I requested her a number of occasions to line up the entrance however for some cause, her clippers weren’t chopping. I advised the barber a number of occasions to return and mix the fade in additional and advised her ‘Are you able to line me up once more?’ The barber tried and tried till I finally gave up and accepted my haircut. To some, the haircut might not appear that dangerous, however personally, I like my fades well-blended and my strains crisp. I received neither with this haircut.
I might inform the barber was new as a result of after my first criticism one other barber was giving her recommendation. After she went again and ‘mounted’ it, that’s once I realized I wasn’t going to get what I needed out of this reduce and simply accepted my destiny. Lastly, I did what anybody else would do when receiving a foul haircut: I cried somewhat and simply wore a hat for the remainder of the week. Properly, I didn’t cry however I posted a rant video on my TikTok and titled it ‘the worst haircut.’”
“Mockingly, I visited a salon (as an influencer) to strive their providers and promote them on my social media. I solely requested for curtain bangs to border my face and confirmed her examples of precisely what I needed. There’s even a video of me explaining what I needed, as we had been being filmed for content material creation. She ended up chopping 360-degree bangs on high of my hair that appears like a bowl reduce with poorly put in hair extensions beneath. On high of that, she additionally reduce a number of size with out my consent (over three inches), though she talked about she was solely going to trim somewhat bit off the ends.
I instantly freaked out once I noticed some tremendous brief strands of hair towards the again of my head. I requested her to dry and magnificence my hair so we might examine. She was tremendous tough when she was curling my hair, she was yanking it so laborious I used to be virtually in tears ― even the videographer approached me and requested if I used to be OK.
As soon as my hair was dry, I freaked out and advised her it was by no means what I needed, I didn’t prefer it and I used to be very upset. The proprietor of the salon came visiting and stated she would repair it and had the unique hairdresser wash my hair and prep it. She went forward and reduce much more horrible uneven layers. After I left the salon, she had the audacity to ask for an excellent evaluation.
I’ve since received a haircut with a really gifted hairdresser that softened the layers and made it a bit higher, however that tremendous brief layer is still there and haunts me daily. I’m being affected person till it grows in and out the meantime favor a number of half-up, half-down hairstyles.”
“I requested for a female reduce and needed to maintain my present hairline and never push it again. As an alternative, not solely was my hairline pushed again, however each my hairline and edges had been reduce off. I attempted to ask the hairdresser to repair it, however the injury was already achieved. I used to be clearly unhappy.
Till the hair grew out, I wore many hats and solely took pictures from the facet least affected.”
