Default I could cry. :( Bad cut

---------------------------------------------

MAJOR EDIT 5 HOURS LATER
I'm starting to love it now, today anyway! I have no idea what it will be like after sleeping on it but we'll see!

---------------------------------------------

Ok so I got my hair cut today at a new salon. I said to make the layers shorter but leave the main length the same.

That DIDN'T happen. Now I have horrible hair. I hate it. I'll have to wear it straight now and even then it looks odd.

I'm just adding some new pics. If anyone could tell me what I could do to make it look better I'll take the advice. I have had to clip the front bits back because they looked ridiculous. It's not as girly and flowing anymore.

The only thing I wanted to add is that it does look curlier, I still have those horrible straight bits at the front through (hence why I clipped it back).

ETA: Also: she told me co washes being good was a myth, an old wives tale. She said my hair was not curly but slightly wavy. I had to shampoo 3 times to get product out when I got home...it was sticky and horrible - yuck.

EDIT AGAIN!! (sorry) I have been thinking about this. I have decided that the layers are to blame so I'm now going to try and grow them out. I feel so stupid. I'm adding a picture of me when I was 18 to fotki - I loved my hair back then I didn't EVER have a bad hair day! From what I can recall, I didn't have layers.

It looks like your hair has changed curl pattern quite a bit since you were 18. Mine did that too. It's been three different curl patterns. Confusing isn't it?

I bet your hair is in shock but she sure did cut it shorter. Maybe those pieces that used to be straight will grow back in curlier now. I bet if you baby it and use say some recoil and a nice gel your hair will bounce back.

I'm sorry you're so traumatized by the cut and I can very much relate.

I hope you're right, right now I don't even want to leave the house.

Aww thank you so much! I am learning to appreciate it now, it's curlier and generally more even, I'm even starting to like the way the straighter bits look!

Isn't it funny how things go? I was totally devestated earlier now I wanna show the World!

I guess it's not good when first washed, but when it's got softer through the day it's improved.

I'm so sorry you don't like your cut. You have to hate it when a stylist doesn't do what you ask! This person didn't sound v. knowledgeable though... IMO, your hair is not SLIGHTLY wavy. If this helps, I know that my hair seems shorter right after a cut, but once it calms down in a few days it actually seems longer to me.


But honestly, I think your hair looks cute! I like it pinned back, so if you hate those shorter pieces that's a nice alternative. Think of it as a slightly shorter style for summer.

I think it looks very cute! I know how you feel, though, so I'm sorry you weren't happy with your cut. I'm glad you're feeling better about it now, though.

My last stylist also told me my hair was only wavy and not curly (I don't go to her anymore). That was true when it was a lot shorter. Now that it's longer, it goes into spirals and is definitely curlier the longer it gets. Maybe once your layers and length grow out some, it'll grow into the curl. I still think it looks really cute right now, though.

One time the stylist went way shorter than i wanted and started using the clippers. I basically got a buzz cut.
