I had a stylist literally argue with me over shrinkage because she cut off more than i asked and i was upset. She was so adamant it just could not possibly shrink that much. I sat under a heat lamp till it dried just to prove her wrong.

ok, years ago I went to this salon for the first time to have my hair done and I was natural and I asked her if my hair would be able to get a wrap. she tells me yes. I didn't know any better and she was the stylist. Well wrapping your hair requires moisture and then you going to wrap that wet curly hair around it's self and sit under a dryer. Do I have to tell you all what my hair looked like after it was dry with a bunch of styling lotion on it.

She tried to comb my hair out and instead of her saying well it is not going to work and rewet it and do my hair over she let me walk out the shop like that and me not knowing any better and too scared to say anything I never said a word just left and went home and did my hair over.

I see this as my fault, because I kept changing stylists, but now I've found one I trust (Mary)and will stay with her. However, before that I ended up with one stylist that cut my shortest layer 2 inches from my head! I told her I wanted LONG layers and she still cut it short. I was in shock....I've only recently been able to get it in a pony tail because it was so short. And not only did she cut the layers short, she razor cut the rest of it....I looked like Joan Jet. Anyway, it's been 8 months now, and that layer is about eye level now, and my goal is to get the shortest layer down to my chin. When I finally ended up with my current stylist I will now stay with, I feel like I had a sort of counseling session with her first before I let her do anything on me. I told her my horror story and told her I was scared to even let anyone touch my hair again. All she ended up doing with me that day was "clean up the edges" because we both agreed that I'm still in the growing out process. I love her and trust her....I'm done bouncing around to different stylists....I'm staying with "Mary" now forever!

Thinning shears! I live in Singapore and not very many stylists know anything about cutting even wavy hair. This guy thinned out my hair so much. The shortest bits of hair now curl up and just kind of sit on top of the rest of my hair, since they're "divorced" from their respective curls. Talk about frizz! And in such high humidity... it's been raining almost every day for the last 4 months. Singapore= worst formula for curly hair. It will probably take a full year for the shortest bits of hair, which were sheared to eye level, to grow out. -.- Actually, I'm new to this board and the CG method etc... and my current haircut is what made me desperate to fix my awful hair. (So far, I'm seeing an improvement.)
Sorry to hear about your crappy misadventure. What do you plan to do about cutting your hair in the future (assuming you'll continue living in that region of the world)?

You know what's funny as hell. When I contacted a prospective employer about a part time side job, I still had a long mane/fro of curls. I contacted them on a Sunday and they wanted to interview me on the next day (Monday). I didn't have time for a haircut but instead of tousling it with spray gel to create sassy curls, I had to make it look at least semi-respectable. So, what I did was shower, blow-dry my hair using a round styling brush. After that I curled my hair with my wife's curling iron. LMAO It gave the appearance that I cut my hair. Even though I did it a few days later. You are probably still laughing that a guy curled his hair. Well, I got the job. Maybe it was the luck of the curling iron.
She straightned my hair and gave me a "straght hair cut". Next day i washed it and i had a choppy mess!!!!
I washed and dried my hair before I went to the stylist's so that she could see the shape of my curl. I declined a shampoo, so she proceeded to wet down one side of my head with a spray bottle! I didn't even know that was an option. I stopped her halfway and she cut my hair unevenly. When it dried, each side of my head curled differently because they were different weights. I ended up calling the salon and getting it redone by one of the head stylists for free and I loved the way she fixed it. I now know to walk out of the chair if they even pick up the spray bottle.
Not listening and lying about knowing how to cut curly hair.

In twenty years of solo adult visits to the hairdresser not a single one recognised I have curly hair (~2b, clearly wavy when wet) which to me is the biggest hair crime, not actually understanding the material you are working with every single day.

One even permed my hair several times and was shocked how quickly it took a curl! Another gave me a lovely layered cut that would 'work with my slight waves', looked like Farrah Fawcett by the time I'd walked five minutes across town.
I asked the stylist not to thin my hair. Well...she hid the shears, but proceeded to thin my hair with scissors, razor style. I had NO idea that this was what was going on, until I felt my thin hair and followed up on research that night. I will NEVER go back!!

2a medium porous, You can see my wavy tutorials here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...ZNxhBHSXAW40OQ and my wavy blog is The Wavy Nation http://wavynation.wordpress.com
I went to the same stylist when I was about 18 or 19 for almost a year and everytime I would go in, she would not be able to get it right.. something was always uneven, too short, or too long. Gladly I smartened up after a while and stopped going

I was a model for a hair cutting class at Vidal Sassoon and I told the instructor that I was game for anything as long as he kept in mind I had curly hair. He nodded excitedly and said he loved curly hair.

My back was to the mirrors (so I was facing a class of about fifteen budding hairstylists) the whole time and when he was finished all the students "ooh'd" and "aaah'd" at my amazing hair.

Then the stylist spun me around and to my horror it looked like I was wearing a TILTED BERET OF MY OWN HAIR.

That's right people: my hair was cut into the shape of a freaking French hat.

Best acting of my life was pretending that I loved my hair.

Then I wore a hat for three days until I could get if fixed somewhere else.
2B/2C Pourous, medium texture, low elasticity.

Am currently auditioning the following:
Poo/cowash: Dr. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Shampoo and Boots brand conditioner
Rinse Out: Naked Bounce: Curl Defining Conditioner
Leave in: Diluted Faith In Nature pomegranate and roobois conditioner (50% conditioner, 50% water).
Gel: Boots curl creme (Boots Pink)
Creme: Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer

Hair seems to be in some kind of transition. It used to be very curly and now is just wavy.

The worst haircut experience i had was in January.
I went to this fashion salon and tell the hairdresser that i want an inverted bob, i also showed him a few pics of what i wanted.
We concorded about the length (i wanted the longest strand at about shoulder length) and i advised him to not make a choppy cut but cut the strands with the scissors.

What did he do?
He used the RAZOR to cut ALL the strands (i can't forget the sound and the feel of my hair being chopped by that tool

This is what he did:
(Iron flattened)



(Curly, diffuser dried)
Curl Pattern: 2c-3a
Porosity: medium
Density: thin
Width: fine
Lenght: short (jaw-lenght)
2013 haircut: 1/25/2013; 07/04/2013

Routine: modified CG
CW: cone free and protein free conditioners
DT: homemade sheabutter hair creme /Hydraderm sheabutter hair mask+coconut oil+lecitin
Styling before diffusing FSG with hydrolized keratin
Once a month (or every 2 months): henna
It was a fault of my own.. I told the stylist to cut it short. She warned me but i had some style in my mind and believe me it went all awry. I had to use scarf for weeks.. What a nightmare!!!
I would say one of the biggest (especially if your looking to combat frizz), is when they tell you their helping you out by thinning your hair out and they whip out a trusty RAZOR . That is a no no because it will have individual, uneven strands that will most likely resemble frizzies.

Another one would be when they cut your hair by straightening it to make sure they are cutting "evenly". This is a problem especially if your one of the "I only straighten my hair when I go in for my cut types". It just doesn't make sense if you leave your hair curly otherwise.

Finally, when they spray it wet and cut it saying they will take an inch or less off. They end up cutting more like 3-6 inches in reality and then you deal with lovely shrinkage.

I have a phobia of hairdressers.
Sometimes I get carried away and manipulate him too much. He tells me he's fine on his own but I never listen. I wash him less now and all in all we're happy.
