I have been using the same hairdresser for yonks, and have always been happy with how she cuts my hair.
Recently I was trying to grow it, but got exasperated and went for a cut. We talked about how I wanted to proceed, and decided that it would go back to short on the neck, above the ears, but more length left in the top for a "softer" look. (There used to be someone in one of the American CSI type programmes who had exactly the sort of style I had in mind, wish I could remember which one!)
Anyway, away we went and I was very pleased with the result. Fast forward to the Friday before the last Bank Holiday, and it was due for a trim/cut.
I went in, she said "remind me what we are doing?" I said short on the neck, above the ears, leave length on the top.
After a while I suddenly realised that she had cut layers back in to the top AND despite knowing how I am about my fringe being too short, had over trimmed it.
It is the worst cut I can remember having in years. It looks a bit like a cross between Rowan Atkinson in the first Blackadder series (well, maybe not quite that bad but nearly) and something that had been done by a psychotic hairdressing apprentice who had split up with her boyfriend and was experiencing very bad PMT.
Now, I know that hair wise I have 2 options, let it grow a bit, or have it cut shorter, but what I want to ask is do you think I should go in and tell her that I'm not happy? When she did the tarting about with a brush and dryer thing it was sort of ok, but it's now that I'm having to do battle with it myself that the flaws are really starting to show.
My hair isn't easy to cut, it has always been the type that shows every scissor mark, but this time I can actually feel the "steps" at the back.
Sorry for the long rambling post
