Ever give someone a bad haircut?

My little brother(hes 19) just asked me to cut his hair...with kitchen shears. He put it in a pony tail and I cut it off. It ended up looking like a bob! The back it super short and choppy. Wish I had a pic of it...but he wont let me!

  • My husband had long hair before going into the army. He didn't want them to cut it so he asked me to. I refused at first, but he insisted, so I did and it was choppy as well. I finally just shaved it with the clippers.

  • The night before my best friend and I graduated high school she asked me to trim her bangs. What started out okay got shorter and shorter, til she wound up with short curls on one side that angled down to nicely trimmed bangs on the other side.

  • I think that would just make it worse staci! I dont think I could even it. I tried to cut my son's bangs once. I kept trying to even them out and it just kept getting shorter and shorter! The salon had to give him a buzz cut!

  • Lol, Yes. I was new in Cosmetology, and left the clippers running while removing the cutting cape ( so I could make sure I had any stray body hairs taken care of at the base of the neck) and the clippers bumped into the back of his head making a nice bald line right in the back of the cut. He had very dark hair so it was very obvious. I felt sick and offered him free services for the next time. Luckily he was a great customer who took it well. It was one of those "I can't believe I just did that" moment....... never did it again :-)
