My Weekend: Big Mistake, Bad Haircut

Hey all, how was your weekend?  Mine was pretty lazy.  I didn't plan anything, or go anywhere, unless you count a trip to Wal-Mart on Monday to buy deeply discounted Easter Candy.  And then yesterday, I made a mistake.  Well, several cardinal mistakes that I would have strongly advised my readers against when making any decisions regarding beauty services.  I decided to get a hair cut, on the spur of the moment, at a salon that I had never been to before, from a woman whose work I had never seen on anyone else, with no idea what I wanted to do with my hair.

Result?  She cut herself, while doing a basic trim with layers on the bottom only.  And bled in my hair (!!!!)  And did such a shoddy job that I could have corrected her technique for her.  Also, she cut off way more lenth than she was supposed to. Why don't some hairstylists get that when I say keep my hair the same length with layers at the bottom, I mean that the bottom layer should be my current length? In my defense, I've been under a lot of stress lately, so bad choices are part and parcel of the
On a positive note, it wasn't a terrible haircut, just not an amazing one, which is what I usually aim for.  My hair tends to grow out fast, so with a little Dabur Amla Oil and no dyeing whatsoever, I should have it back to my usual length in no time, and then I can go to a proper place that I know does a good job from past experience and get the work done properly.  And for you, it can be an opportunity to learn from another's mistakes: Don't make irreversible beauty decisions before your wedding day on a whim. For any services you do get done, go to a place you already know.  Make sure you've seen the beauty technicians work before, on yourself, in a trial, or on someone else. Know what you want, and be sure you know how to ask for it.

p.s.  I am entering a few giveaways to console myself, you should to.  Free Estee Lauder Makeup and a gorgeous evening bag can never go wrong.


  1. she bled on you??? good God.

  2. I know, my issue is I gotta find a place that's reasonably priced, hijab friendly, and professional. Apparently it's in the twilight zone. Next time I'm just going to Jason Michael's in Square One, where I always go. Or Silvery Blue Butterfly

  3. Wow she bled on you?! Rofl
    If you happen to live in Mississauga there's one place I always go to. It's called Margaritas Hair Salon on 2515 Hurontario Street. Being Bengali I was blessed with extremely healthy and long hair and I'm always scared to get a haircut. This was the only place I felt like they spent their time and effort to cut my hair properly. I can't remember the name but there's a petite Spanish lady I usually go to.

  4. Adiba, I'll look into that, the name sounds familiar. My salon "of choice" was what me and my sisters like to refer to as "some random place on Hurontario." Any story that starts with a parlour there ends badly, we've found. Guess I should have known.

  5. Seems you did a pretty bad mistake there. You should have gone to a more known salon but good thing you find the finished service fine. Just be careful with your decisions next time. haircutting classes
