I got my hair done and got some bangs, I haven't them in years! I thought it looked really good! I walk in my mom's office and she looks at me and says" I don't know if I am going to be able to get use to that"! I was really offended and hurt! Everytime I get my hair colored or cut everybody raves about it and she doesn't say anything! Any thoughts?

  • I don't think I'd be hurt. I don't know your mom, but it doesn't really sound like she was trying to be mean. Just saying that it was different than what she was used to.

  • if that's the way she is then there's no changing it i would freak out if all of a sudden she turned around and told you how great it was if she's just a poop head

  • It wouldnt bother me. My mom has said things like that to me and she just means because its different then before. I have also said the same sorts to her. It doesnt mean I hate her hair LOL. I dont take it personally unless she says something mean to me. Hair is just hair. Not everyone like the same styles.

  • She probably just meant you look alot different. If you think it looks good it probably does. I don't think you should too hurt by it.

  • OMG that is just your mom being exactly that your mom, moms do that kind of stuff mine does, big deal, if you feel so bad about it why dont you ask her later on why she doesn't like your hair and take it from there but if I were you I wouldn;t make a big deal about it, because I dont think she said it to hurt your feelings in any way

  • well what's the big deal if you're mom doesn't like your hair. do you need to impress your mom with your looks? at least it's not your husband or boyfriend saying your hair looks bad. last i knew moms love their daughters despite their hair style so I wouldn't care if I were you.
