  • Just don't say anything unless she asks . . . then be honest, nicely. If you can't count on a good friend to be gently honest, then what is the point?

  • Comment on the positive. If she is happy about it, let it be. But if she says she is undecided if she likes it, etc then be gently honest

  • Nicely say "it's not the most flattering cut you've ever had"

  • Just don't say any thing about it. Unless it is really really bad, then you should tell her.

  • If she loves it I wouldn't say anything. If she is wishy washy on it find a magazine and say something you would think that would look a bit oh do you think that hair style or color would look good on you? It would be subtle without hurting her feelings. I got my hair dyed once and I thought it looked like I was going gray the way she did it and my mom saw it and honestly thought I was wearing a wig screwing around like I always do I am sooooooo glad she said something I paid 100 dollars which is a LOT for me to get it done and glad my mom spoke up.

  • It depends on your friends personality and how they take 'criticism' ... If they are the more blunt type it's easier to say "Do you like it?" then go from there ... But if they're SUPER sensitive - I'd just either not acknowledge the new 'do, or I'd change the subject fast if they bring it up "Did you notice I got my hair cut?" "Oh YEAH! Hey, where do you get yours done? ... I've been thinking about trying _____ salon"
