Thanks ladies. I think I am going to invest in some new hair accessories too. I really love my flexi 8 so maybe ill get more of those for half up styles. I also tried something new today sort of what Korkscrew described where I basically intertwine the short bits with the longer ones. It's not great but a little better maybe.
It sounds like many of us have experienced this same crappy haircut! Diane, I think I will look into cutting it myself too. I don't think I could make anymore of a mess than these stylists do!!! For the record I watch your videos and think your hair looks great
but I know how it is when we see the uneven parts and have the difficulty of styling it even if others think its good.
Thank you all for the support. I literally cried about this and felt so stupid but it helps to know I'm not alone!
