Stupid Hideous New Haircut

ARGH!!!  For weeks now I've been itching to get my hair cut.  It was down past my shoulders and I was sick of it.  I wanted to get it cut short, like this or maybe even shorter:
Kirsten Storms always has such adorable hair!  Love me some Maxie!!  (I'm a huge General Hospital nerd!)  Last July I used this same picture as inspiration and ended up with this:
Nice right?  I thought so too!  When I washed it out and curled it, it even looked like the haircut I wanted.  So this time when I went in, I gave them the same picture.  I did NOT get the same result.  Instead I ended up with this hot mess...
 Like the crazy eyes?  Do ya??  Huh??  Yeah, well, I'm REALLY just a wee bit upset about the bangs.  Hello, what am I TWELVE???  ARGH.  I'm so bummed. I went to get this done as a surprise for the hubs while he was at work.  Instead of feeling all cute and sexy, I felt like a big dork.  Still do.  Oh well, at least it's only hair.  It'll grow out.  Hopefully soon.


I'm linking this "real" post up at Not JUST A Housewife's "Get Real" party because what's more real than a hideous haircut documented with horrible cell phone pictures?

There is nothing worse than getting a bad haircut...but although you are disapointed I think it looks pretty good. At least the bangs aren't real short. You certainly have beautiful, shinny hair. Maybe you can style it a bit differently to your liking.

I don't think it looks bad:) I recently chopped off like 10 inches and was in shock for a couple weeks. Once I got used to doing it I was okay. And now I like it. Thanks for linking this up !!!!

Aw, I think you're being a little too hard on yourself. It's actually kind of cute. But I know that feeling of when you get the total opposite of what you wanted :)

Girl listen... you've got plenty to work with here! The bangs will grow out quickly! Until then just sweep them back into the rest of your hair and smooth them out. Play with the rest of your hair... try to flip it out and curl it under. Try breaking it into two different sections and flipping the bottom half out and the top half curl under and vice versa. Try using bobby pins to pin a small section up... whatever just spend some time playing with it and figuring it out and before long you'll love it! It's really cute! You've just got to see the potential in this haircut!

Lol! I'm laughing at your commentary, not the hair. I so understand how you feel. It's amazing how different hair stylist interpret hair. Some are better than others, that's for sure.

Christine said...

Oy, hair can be so difficult, can't it? I never, ever have the salon style my hair, I cannot stand the funky stuff they come up with for me, lol! I'll bet that once yours calmed down it was back to adorable.....

Not so bad of a haircut. Your inspiration is all styled, teased, sprayed!
Keep working on it and it'll all come together!
