Bad Hair Day

I just got a bad haircut and I'm very sad. I'm sure it would be a good haircut for someone else, but not for me. I'm not a short hair kind of girl. I like my hair at least shoulder length. This cut is very short.

A wonderful friend and colleague cut my hair. She used to do hair for a living, and I think she always looks so cute and stylish. I thought she'd know just what to do for my hair. We failed to communicate about my expectations and her 'vision' apparently.

I could just cry...

***********************

Update:

Thanks for all your kind comments. I know you know how I feel. We've all had a haircut that disappointed. Anyway, I'm feeling better. I'm still not crazy about it, but I'm getting used to it. My hair grows fast, so it will look a bit different even a month from now.

I've had a good weekend. I'll post more about my adventures tomorrow.

Have a happy Monday!

    I've been thinking about going shorter and your post has stopped me. Hope you will be okay. Though you are really such a pretty woman and I wonder if maybe it does suit you and you just cannot see it through the shock of it all. Hang in there and eat lots of protein so your hair grows back to where you are comfortable!

    I'm so sorry that you feel as though you got a bad cut. It sucks when that happens.

    Awwww Joannah... I'm sure it's not bad. It's probably just the difference that you're not used to. Besides you really are such a beautiful woman that I really think you could make bald look good. :)

    I've been thinking about cutting mine off too here lately. And I probably will before I go to China.

    Oh Honey - I'm so sorry you don't like your new do. That's not how a day at the salon is supposed to end.

    Even though you are so pretty that it's hard to imagine a haircut that doesn't look good on you, I do empathize with how you feel.

    Hang in there - And thank goodness it grows back.

    :(

    I'm sorry that is always so disappointing. I bet it looks cute though and just remember hair grows back fast. Alot faster then our wait for our daughters.

    Joannah, I'm so sorry. I think you are so pretty and I'm sure it still looks great. Maybe you just need to get used to it? However, I also know how it feels to not feel happy about your new do!

     
  • At 8:29 PM, Blogger Kayce said…

    uck! I'm sooo sorry! I know just how that feels. Don't let it get you down on your beauty though. Your beauty comes from within! Make it shine girl!!!

    I wish you would post a picture. I have a feeling that it looks great !

    Does it sound trite for me to remind you that hair grows?

     
  • At 9:52 PM, Blogger Gracencameronsmomy said…

    Oh no! It will grow back, don't worry!!

     
  • At 6:32 AM, Blogger Amy said…

    thank goodness it is only a temporary condition and it will change. I am the worce when it comes to bad hair cuts. Some pritty hair clips or a new hat may make you feel better. Have a good weekend.

     
  • At 9:49 AM, Blogger AprilMay said…

    Ack! You poor thing! Forget buying new hair clips...go for a whole new outfit to make you forget about your hair! :) I am with the others here though...I bet you still look beautiful!

    Bad hair cuts suck, let alone when it's a "friend" who cut it...ouch!

    I'm sure you look super cute with it. Short is fresh and springy! Show us the new you!

     
  • At 1:55 PM, Blogger Mariah said…

    Oh no..I've totally been there...and yes cried as well!! At least when it is short it seems to grow back faster..and maybe it won't be so bad in a few days!!
    Hugs!!!

    Oh I am sorry, things like that are so upsetting!
    I am sure it isn't as bad as you think. AND it will grow back soon!

     
  • At 5:00 PM, Blogger Tammy said…

    UGH! That stinks. I feel your pain as I'm not a short haired gal either & sported a short style once & could not wait until it grew in. Take some good multivitamins.

    Hugs to you.

    Oh Joannah, I'm so sorry. I hate it when I get a bad cut too, I guess everyone does. Hang in there.

     
  • At 7:01 PM, Blogger Recovering Wino said…

    I'm sorry....I know how our hair has such an effect on how we feel.

    Hang in there. Pray for fast hair regeneration.

     
  • At 8:37 PM, Blogger C.J. said…

    But, it always comes back. That's the only saving grace. Sorry about the interim frustrations.

     
  • At 1:01 PM, Blogger kris said…

    Oh gosh, sorry Joannah. I hope it isn't nearly as bad as you think (we do tend to think it's bad even when it's not) and that you can work with it at least. Have you gone in public, gotten any comments?

    Good news is, hair grows, right?! Hang in there.

    UGh, bad haircuts. I am sure you look great though. : )

     
  • At 5:24 PM, Blogger Donna said…

    I'm with you...when my hair looks bad, I feel bad. Maybe someone can at least do a repair job? It will grow back soon...

     
  • At 6:35 PM, Blogger Yes, Minister... said…

    I so understand as I am living through the longest bad hair cut you can imagine! UGH ~ nothing take longer than a bad hair cut ~ or Chinese adoption, take your pick!

    big hug!

    I HATE it when I get a bad haircut...and yes, I've cried after. Thankfully it will grow back. Not much consolation right now, though....

    OMG that just sucks! I too just cut more long hair short and we're slowly making friends. But I understand your grief, it sounds trivial, but I get it. And it sucks too that a friend cut it; complex.

     
  • At 2:54 AM, Blogger OziMum said…

    I'm having a hair cut tomorrow!!! I'm trying to grow mine (just past my shoulders!), from a short style. I hope she doesn't cut too much off!

    I'm sure you look gorgeous. the good thing about hair, is, it grows!

     
  • At 7:35 AM, Blogger Andrew & Stephanie said…

    Oh gosh. I'm sorry. I feel for you... I too have had several "visionary" hair cut problems! :) At least your hair grows fast!!!
    When we started the adoption process I decided not to cut my hair until we got our referral.... I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out! :)

    I'm so glad you're having better days. Shell

    I just got a haircut last week that I HATE, so I feel your pain.

     
  • At 9:38 AM, Blogger kris said…

    Glad you're feeling better about your hair... bad haircuts are the worst. Hope you had a wonderful weekend~!

    SO sorry that things did not go your way. I feel you pain with the bad hair cut. I stopped going to my over priced lady and got a bad but cheap cut this last time. What's girl to do.

    The last really horrible hair cut I had all I could think was I sure hope it grows out before Miya meets me!
