Default ugh

if you look at the makeover section (under gallery) of bumble & bumble's site, there are two gorgeous curlies with gorgeous curls, and they just hack them to pieces. shameful.

They look hideous! April looks almost like she has bald spots and she's all spiky - and Katie really should be hiding her face. Ugh is right. Now I'm convinced not to buy Bumble & Bumble products - not exactly their desired effect.

...It's a siggie.

Why would anyone do that? The 'stylist' surely can't think they made the models look good afterwards?

Horrible. Horrible. Horrible. April's makeover especially depressed me.

I agree, they all looked beautiful and the stylist (I use the term loosely) did a real "hatchet job" on them...very sad.

Their hair was gorgeous before. I loved April's hair before she had the makeover. I agree with all of you- this is horrible (especially April's).

They left home that morning looking beautiful and came home looking horrible. I wonder if they cried?

Their hair was beautiful. Why oh why would they do that? The stylist really did a number on their makeunders.

OMG I had to show my husband those pics. He was so confused. They looked so good BEFORE the makeovers and hideous after.

Darn, they all had such pretty hair. I'm not impressed with the "after" either.

Wow. They all had really beautiful hair. However, I like April's makeover with the spiky style.

I had my hair cut at Bumble and Bumble about 6 or 7 years ago.....Just an average haircut, I didn't like it and never went back....

I can never understand a hairdresser who would cut a curly heads hair into a style that she couldn't wear curly.....would they cut a straighties hair in a style that had to be curled every day???

Default bumble

I can tell you why they did such hatchet jobs- because B&B apparently doesnt train their stylists to work on anything but straight thin hair. I went to one of their model calls yesterday and was told my (quite loose curls) was too difficult for students, mostly because it was too thick. So I was rejected after waiting in line for 45 mins (and after filling out an online profile that I was quite honest on). Others with similar hair - even less curly- were also rejected. If none of the students ever get their hands on thick or curly hair no wonder its hard to find someone who knows what they are doing. Im certainly never giving them my money.
