How to survive a bad haircut

Well today's blog is about every girl's nightmare... a bad haircut ...urghhhh. I know all of you must have gone through this pain at least once in your life and therefore I am sure you'd be able to totally empathize with the story I am about to tell you.

So, flashback to 4th of may... just one month to go for my wedding..... all my wedding beauty prep is on its peak... beauty sleep, face packs, hair oiling, conditioning and the list goes on, and suddenly I feel the need to get a hair cut. Those of you who have seen my old pictures know that i had really long hair before and i've had them that way for as long a I can remember... the last time they were short was in Xth standard i guess.
Since, I get them trimmed regularly, it did not seem like a big deal. but still there was some part of my brain that kept me a little apprehensive..... So i asked my mom and she readily said that I do need to get the tips removed as it will add a little bounce to the hair and at the same time she warned me not to get it too short.

# TIP No. 1 Never cut your hair right before your wedding or any big event, always have some time on your hand for corrections and for allowing them to grow. (I had a month)

So, being the impulsive person that I am,  instead of going to my regular guy, I set off to find the hair salon with the best haircut in town. I asked a few of my friends and my sister's friends and one name came up a lot more than the others, people said that this is the new hep place...they give really cool haircuts and one of the girls also gave me the name of the guy there who's the best there. So I decided to go there...

# TIP No. 2  Never try to experiment with your hair especially near big days, these are the most accident prone days... (but that's just my theory :p...applies to all rash decision makers)

Next day, I went to this place and turns out that the guy I wanted was unavailable and is only available on appointment... so I being the impatient person that I am decided to get it done from the so called next best guy available (big mistake) and what the hell did i know  :'( ... He asked me what i wanted... I told him that I just wanted to trim my hair and add some bounce on the top. He looked really confident and told me to relax and put my neck down and began his work. After about 20 mins, he asked me if i would like some bangs... i said yes....after all I am going to be the bride... a different look would be perfect, I was thinking in my head and BAMMMMM!!!.... he took the scissors and cut of a big chunk of hair off my face.

# TIP No. 3 Always be really specific on what you want with your hair and do not agree with what they suggest, especially if its your first time with them.

So I come home with this stupid haircut, cursing that guy and killing him in my head. I felt like crying after seeing in the mirror (all length gone, uneven steps and super short bangs)

...  Nothing cheered me up... even my mother in law was upset after looking at my picture.. I was helpless. After two days of being that way I realized that I have to live with it so this is what i did.

# Accept your new haircut and try to make it work.
# Tie it up, pin it up, straighten it, curl it, put on a clutch-er.... there is a good chance it will look alright in at least one of the ways.
# Oil, condition, brush... regular hair care to make it grow faster.. I grew almost an inch in one month.
# For the big day, choose your hairstyle keeping in mind your haircut and what suits your face.
#Stop obsessing about it and be happy .... that is the only thing that will make it go away.... if you are happy and smiling nobody will care about your hair and as they say happy girls are always the prettiest.


  1. Perfect "happy girls are always the prettiest"....
    Nice tips & post!

  2. I warned my salon guy not to experiment and just trim hair and take care of split ends. I have done such experiment for my cousin's wedding and I regret it for months... Don't worry they will grow back soon. More than me it's my guy who gets worried if I tell him I am going fora haircut. Boys and their love for long hair I never get this

  3. Yo! happy girls are the prettiest. great and much needed tips :)
