Bad haircut fix - what to do when it goes "wrong"

It's happened. Your worst nightmare. Your stylist has taken leave of her senses and completely misunderstood what you wanted, leaving you with no choice but to run from the salon, towel around your shoulders and tears in your eyes. This might be a little extreme, but there's no denying that misunderstandings do happen when it comes to the cut you want. Perhaps you haven't explained it well enough, or perhaps the stylist decided to get a little 'creative'. Either way, you hate your new cut and want to wear a hat for the next 5 months. What do you do??


Short Bangs?

This is a classic mistake. Because bangs need trimming all the time, it can be easy to take off too much. To make them look as long as possible, you're going to need a flat iron. Of course, where there is heat, there should be heat protectant, otherwise your poor bangs will be frazzled and frizzy, and look even shorter!


Part Games


You never know, your hideous new cut might look completely different – and better – once you move your part around. If the cut looks all askew, maybe that's because it should be styled in a side part? Play around with your part to see what suits you best.




Accessories are the best things for hiding/disguising a bad haircut. Have you ever worn a headband? They're great for pushing back unruly bangs, as well as creating simple updos in order to hide those hated layers! You could even be creative and create a headband with your own hair, by braiding it across your forehead for a pretty and romantic look.


Deep Breath


Lastly, calm down! Extensions and ponytails will help you through the re-growth period. And you know you could always be a trendsetter and get on board with the wet-look trend...
