Never been so let down by people which are supposed to be trained.
If thinking of having some weight taken out of hair. Think again. Think long & hard. Do you 100% trust the person doing it?
In society we have to trust certain people.
But my trust is now long gone.
Went in for a hair cut to remove damaged ends. Left with dull, lifeless hair that had been butchered by a razor which probably wasn’t even sharp as my hair suddenly felt completely split from root to tip. In addition to layers cut in that are too short for my face shape.
The only good thing about this whole process is that it has happened to me while I’m young and I do have my whole life ahead of me. I’m not getting married anytime soon, etc..
However, it has completely wrecked my confidence. I can’t even look in the mirror, if I do I break down. I’m really anxious about leaving the house. But know life is too short. I couldn’t feel more stupid. I’m so hurt & angry. Feel like life is punishing me, but at the same time maybe it’s just leading me to find the good as things can only get better after they’ve gone drastically wrong.
After 4 days panicking on what to do, I decided to ring a different salon and now finally feel like I’m in safe hands, but it will be incredibly difficult to let my guard down and have the trust again. If you are a stylist, please read this & understand. I have now been told that razoring is very damaging to long hair & you can achieve the same effect of removing weight. USING JUST SCISSORS.
I was never once asked if I was happy for a razor to be used, she just went ahead and used it.
I always thought a hairdressers aim was to make people feel better about themselves. I’m sure many have that aim, but many I now understand definitely do not!
I have hit rock bottom so everything can only go up from here!
That is the only good thing about it.
I’m going in tomorrow for a consultation to discuss what can be done. I had trust with 4 years that broke, and then again recently, and now I’m on the lookout again for someone new. This time I have learnt a lot of lessons, nothing can really get any worse! Will be taking hair vitamins and then gyming when I start to feel a bit more confident. Determined to get through this!
