What to do with a bad haircut?

21
Found 26th Nov 2010
So, I'm a bloke with girl hair. Down to the shoulders it was, until this afternoon, when I went for a haircut and walked out feeling faintly ill. It's just, my hair's a complete **** and it curls out like a ****, and it basically means that the delicately arranged layers that the hairdresser gave me, although they were fine when my hair was damp, have turned into a **** mushroom now. Worse, it's far shorter than I wanted it to be. Like, mouth-length. And this leaves me two options.

1) Visit a hairdresser first thing tomorrow morning, get something new done with it. I don't know what.

2) Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.


I'm erring on the side of a buzzcut. It'll mean girls will be substantially less enamoured by my locks and my ears will get cold, but I'm thinking of it as being like a reformat and reinstall, and they're always good. What does Misc say?

Its the bleak mid winter.......wear a hat X)

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

short back and sides, you shouldn't have gurls hair.

but if you're really not happy with it, you should go back to where it was cut, and ask them to sort it.

I have just had my "Busted Style" hair cut to a more conventional short back and sides with a longer top. Can you not go for something like that? I disliked it for 5 minutes but now love it.

I always thought you were a woman!

Anyway, to answer your question, wash it at home - often it looks better when you wash and dry it yourself, but if you are really unhappy either go back and say you aren't happy or go to another hairdressers and get it fixed.

Great thing about hair is that it grows.
Plus men look hotter with shorter hair - she probably did you a favour X)

Think we need pictures to help

BUZZZZZZZ!

Short hair, all the way.

pics please,

In my experience, that style doesn't attract the girls that I would usually be attracted to myself.

This combination of replies means that you know I LOVE your Busted hair.

Well, I did love it. Now it's gone.

I'm so not interested anymore...

Thanks for the replies, everyone.

Decision, then: Gonna run my GHDs over it, and if it still looks like ass, I'll give it a wash, and failing that, bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. It's gonna feel seriously weird if I do buzzcut it, I've had girlhair for something like 5 years now. Arg.

Oh, and Sickly Sweet, you really thought I was a woman? Did you at least think I might be a lesbian?

I wussed out

So, back to the hair dresser's in the morning, gonna show them a picture of what I want it to be like, and I'll get them to buzzcut it if it's still no good. And I'll post pics tomorrow if I feel especially brave.

I'm sure it'll be fine - might just be a bit strange if you've had longer hair for 5+ years and just had it cut.
I'm sure you'll get used to it however you decide to have it

please upload a pic lololol

Good for you, ask for a different hairdresser and make sure they do what you ask them to.
Can't be that bad that it needs shaving, the length that you say it is a decent stylist should be able to do anything you like. Good luck
