How To Fix a Bad Haircut

Though it seems tragic at the time, almost all of us have been there: we go to a salon, ask for a haircut that we think will look stunning on us, but whether it’s due to our miscalculated judgment or a poor stylist, we end up with a cut that is just absolutely atrocious.

Before you become hysterical and break down into wild sobs, you CAN fix that bad haircut and turn it into a ‘do you will be proud to wear. The first thing that you have to think about is:

Why do you Hate your Haircut?

What is it about that haircut that you have that you absolutely abhor? Is your hair just too short for your liking or are the bangs uneven? Or is it that the haircut that you thought would look wonderful on you just doesn’t suit your face shape? Make sure that prior to freaking out about your new haircut, you wash your hair and you style it as you usually would. Many hair stylists have their own idea about how your hair should “look” after a cut, so it may be that they simply used the wrong product or used the wrong styling products.

When it’s Too Short

This is perhaps the most distressing since we all know that we cannot magically wish for our hair to grow an inch or two. There are the obvious (yet more expensive) options, such as having hair extensions put in or you can try to purchase a wig to wear, but the best and most cost-friendly idea is to just wait it out.

So how can you make your hair look better? For one, straight hair always looks longer than curly or wavy hair. If you naturally have curly or wavy hair, it’s time to become familiar with a flat iron and start straightening out your tresses. You an also give your hair a cute “makeover” by using hair accessories such as clips and pins to add a bit of “flair” to your brand new short hair.

When it’s Uneven

Before you grab your scissors, check with the salon to see if they do offer any sort of restyling period. Most salons offer a 48 to 72 hour “restyling” period where they will fix up your hair for free. Salons care about their reputation and want to be sure that you leave a happy customer.

If you feel embarrassed to call them back or do not trust the stylists one bit to fix up your hair, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to fix it up yourself. Make sure you don’t just grab that old pair of sheers in the kitchen; you will want to either find a pair of very sharp scissors, or professional hair cutting sheers. Begin by trimming very small amounts of hair at a time, and then observe your hair in the mirror from at least 3 different angles. If your hair needs more evening out, trim a bit more and do the same.

When ends are splitting

Split ends are so called because of the tips of their split. They break easily, are confused and look dull. Particularly affected by this long hair – hair is longer than 30 cm will inevitably begin to delaminate at the ends, not withstanding the impact of numerous external factors. With such a length of the protective layer split ends, the cuticle is destroyed, resulting in the structure of the inner layer of the hair cortex and medulla, stratified, horny scales “razlohmachivayutsya” and not pressed against the trunk of the hair, as they are supposed to shine. Most often it affects the ends of her hair, but hair can be split and the entire length. As a rule, the damaged ends of split ends are 2-3 cm, in addition, they are lighter than the rest of the hair.

Split ends in need of enhanced protection from sun and wind, cold and rain. Fixing varnish mousses and also help to restore split ends, because they contain a drying alcohol. If you can not refuse to hair coloring, choose a painting tool with a therapeutic effect, which is well moisturizing and nourish the hair, making them nice and shiny. But from a perm split ends clearly have a rest for a while. Since dry hair can be done and the lack of proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, you should pay attention to it. Split ends will help – active movement, sound and prolonged sleep, lack of sweet and fat in the diet, and that it contains the same fruits and vegetables, nuts and vegetables. Clean water in sufficient quantity is simply necessary to maintain the water balance of the whole body and hair in particular. The reward for all the works and the limitations – bush of soft and shiny hair all year round.
