So I've been going to the same person to get my hair cut for about a 2 years, it isn't frequent (maybe once every 3-4 months) but it's still the same person. She's generally done a pretty good job and I've left happy every time until yesterday when for some reason she cut the front part of my hair to about 1/3 of the length of all the rest of it so that it looks like I'm trying to grow out bangs and comes down to the bottom of my nose.
It looks absolutely terrible and it's really really annoying because it keeps falling into my face and the only way to keep it back is to use pins, which makes me look like Bunsen Honeydew.
I guess maybe I shouldn't have tipped her the same amount I normally did, and maybe I should have said something, but I was feeling pretty angry and unhappy when I got my glasses back on and could see it, and I didn't want to be rude.
I don't know the etiquette for this, or if there's some kind of rationale for her doing it or what the normal thing to do at this point is. My bf suggested going to another hair cutting place and asking them to try to fix it, but I don't know if having them cut more of my hair off is really going to help.
The questions now are:
1) Should I have said something to this hairstylist?
2) Should I be going back to her? What she did until yesterday was fine, was that a fluke? I'm definitely mistrustful now but I liked what she was doing before, I just don't know.
3) If I go back, should I tell her that I really hated what she did last time and thought it was ass ugly? What's the proper way to do that? Is there one? Yesterday I had even told her that I really liked what she did last time and told her I wanted to repeat it, but then I ended up with retardo-cut, should I draw it for her next time or something?
4) What do I do in the meantime? Should I go to some other place and have them try to lessen the..."this hair is 1/3 the length of the other hair and looks a 3 year old just took scissors to the front, especially since it keeps falling in your face"-ishness? I wore a hat in to work this morning but I can't keep it on all the time. Do I just suck it up that for the next 2 months it's going to look stupid until it grows out? Should I go back to the same hairstylist and say, "This looks awful and is really annoying, can't you uh... fix it since it was your screw up?" This seems like a bad idea.
So yeah, I don't know what to do about this. Help?
