There are some things that are guaranteed to put you in a terrible mood, and a bad haircut is definitely one of them! If you've recently fallen victim to a botched crop and find yourself not exactly loving your locks right now, don't panic, because there are a few things you can do to ease the pain.
You have options
Make sure you take a little time to sit down and really consider all of your options, rather than rushing out to another salon and getting it "fixed". You may still be in a bit of a funk when you do so which could just lead to another regrettable hairstyle.
Make a fresh start
If you've been pondering the possibility of a pixie cut, a half hawk or any other edgy short cut, now might be the perfect time to go for the chop. After all, when life gives you a lemon of a haircut, you may as well create a ridiculously cool new look with it!
Road test some new styles
If you don't want to go for a whole new look, try experimenting with some different styling techniques. You can use a little matte wax to hold your locks in place, sweep some gel back through your hair for a wet-look finish, or keep everything on lockdown with a headband or bandana... it's totally up to you.
Talk it out
Such is the protocol for any awkward situation, it's a good idea to talk about it with a friend. Call your BFF, meet them for coffee and just let it all out. Who knows, they might come up with a gorgeous new hairstyle idea for you!
Get an awesome hat
If all else fails, treat yourself to a great new hat and hide beneath it movie star style until you figure out what to do next.
