Tell the hairstylist when she ruined the hair?

Do you tell the hairstylist when they have botched the haircut? Or just move on and find another stylist?

  • I tell them. They don't know unless you tell them, you might some poor sucker from being next.

  • Definitely tell the hairstylist because he/she will think that you were content with the haircut. Be honest about it and they will discounted are won't charge since the haircut was not how you wanted it. Build that trust with your hairstylist because you don't want them to think you like the way they cut your hair. Don't be unhappy!!

  • I have been going to my hairstylist for a couple years now, and this last time she did NOT cut the hair based on the picture I took in and my hair is so short.... not at all what I wanted.
    Thanks for the advice.... I will tell her of my concerns and go elsewhere, but that too can be nerve wrecking!

  • Well honestly it depends on the situation. As a professional I feel its right for you to speak up. If she hasn't done this before, id give her a chance to make right. There is a difference between screwed up and mis communicatins and lack of consultation.

  • and music mom is right... talk to her about it.. miscommunication is what causes a lot of style mess ups. i remember a client i had who wanted her hair styled a certain way after the cut.. her idea of feathered and mine were completely different.. but with communicating we found what eachother meant and she LOVED it. and she now knows what to tell a stylist what she really wants rather than saying feathered and wondering why no stylist she went to before could figure what she meant lol.
