What to Do When You Get a Wack ‘Do

On last week’s episode of She’s Got the Look, Jocelyn whined and complained about her “new” look. Although I think she needed to get over herself, we’ve all been tricked at the salon. When I got my unexpected new look, people came out of the wood work with horror stories of haircuts and hairstyles gone wrong. Here are a few things you can do if you get the haircut from hell:

1) Express your displeasure. What makes is worse is when you don’t have an opportunity express how you feel. And heaven forbid you pay for something you don’t like. After a bad prom hairdo, a friend of mine trashed the stylist’s counter. I wouldn’t suggest that, but be honest about how you feel so that you can reach a resolution on how to make the situation better.

2) Focus on feeling better. Your gut reaction is to call the stylist all kinds of variations of idiot, amateur or worse. That doesn’t really help things. Chances are the stylist already feels bad (if they don’t, you have my permission to ream them out). But look for ways to correct a color, remedy a cut or rework an updo.

3) Have a conversation ahead of time. Talk to your stylist before they start doing what you ask. Be as clear as possible about what you want, don’t be afraid to ask questions like have you done this before, when did you get out of barber school? If you are still getting over a bad experience say so, so that the stylist will snap out of autopilot.
