Once upon a time I had long split hair. I wore it up in a ponytail alllll summer so it was damaged! Clearly, I was overdue for a new cut!
I searched online and found two amazingly cute looks.
I love the one length look and the choppy ends.
I wanted to go shorter for the Fall.
I wanted to wash my hair, add some pomade and go!
I trusted a local walk in place that didn't require appointments. They cut my kids hair and do a great job on my boys. The girls are all trendy and cute looking - yes I judge. So no fear. They can do this.
I showed the girl the pics above. She even said: "Oh we see that one a lot." (about the bottom pic). She seemed to understand what I wanted and cut away. I felt confident.
Then I left with this!
Not what I wanted! Ugh! It's like a mushroom! Although it feels great! Love how light and airy it is but every time I look in the mirror I HATE IT!
I specifically told her I liked the all one length look and the jiggy jaggy messy edges. I clearly have a big chunk layer.
I dyed it auburn too. I wanted a fun fresh "edgy" fall look. The color doesn't work with the cut at.all. I have to really work the hair straightener to get the ends to go under because I don't like that flipped out look! But even when I style it under, there is always a piece that insists on flipping the other way. Drives me nuts!
I am not willing to go back to have them fix this.
I don't have much length left to work with.
Anyone have any thoughts on what I should do? I really don't want to go shorter.
Today I wore it up in a ponytail again. *sigh*
