My hair nightmare! on Nov 04, 2013 @ 12:47 pm


I had a nightmare of a time with a hairdresser about 17 years ago!!

I'm not sure how many people will remember the TV show that John Kelly and Marylyn Turner had years ago. I believe the show was called Kelly and Company and it came out of Detroit Michigan.

Any how they had some high end hairdresser on the show from time to time and he ended up opened a place in Canada not to far from where I live. So one year for my Birthday my mom told me to go there and have my hair done and she'd pay for it as my Birthday gift.

I just finished growing my hair down to my butt, which took me a good five to six years, and I wanted a spiral perm. So I went into this so called high end new hairdressers to have them do it. My hair is straight as a pin and it never did take well to curls, so this perm never took. They told me to come back so they could see what they could do. When I got there the lady asked me if she could cut my hair. I told her she could trim a bit off the ends but that was it that I didn't want any of the length taken off.

After they washed my hair this same woman came up behind me, grabbed all of my hair in her hand and chopped off my hair to my shoulders!! I was so stunned that I couldn't even speak! I had just had a baby a month before this happened and he was very sick, so I was stressed badly enough with out this happening to me. They redid the perm and the whole time I just sat there, not saying a word, knowing if I did I'd start crying uncontrollably.

When I left I went right to my mom's who was taking care of the baby and my two year old son while I was out. As soon as she looked at me I lost it! My poor mother was so up set with this place that she not only called and gave them hell, she called the news paper and told them the story. The place was closed down with in a year after they did that to me. I don't know if it had anything to do with my situation, or not, but I sure was happy they were closed down. I never went back to another hairdresser because of that and I've just let my hair grow for the past 17 years.

It wasn't until last June that I got up enough courage to walk back into another hairdresser and finally have my hair cut. I told this lady my story and she was just as stunned that someone would do something like that to anyone before asking. She promised me that she'd always ask me before she touches my hair, even with a comb. I have to say that this new hair dresser has binned the best thing that has ever happened to my hair and to me. She did just what I asked her to do, nothing more and nothing less and the new hair cut that she gave me has put life not only back into my hair, but also back into my life.

It took me 17 years to get over that hairdressing nightmare, but I have finally put it past me and I'm more than happy that I have.

When i was 13, i had really long hair, but decided that i was old enough to go to the hairdresser for the first time by myself. I had asked for it to be cut to my shoulders, but the hairdresser kept going shorter and shorter and shorter. When i walked out and saw my mom, she actually cried! My long curls were gone and i was now left with a boys haircut! I was so traumatized by this, that it was literally years and years (in fact, close to 15yrs) before i went back to a hair dresser to have my hair cut again. Instead (luckily with my curls it didn't have to be too even) i just cut it myself. The day I went back to have it cut, which was just after the birth of my daughter, I was the one to cry! I was shaking, terrified and crying! But it was all good. Turned out ok. Now, i am the complete opposite! While i still continue to not go very often to get my hair cut, the last time i did, and this was my first time at this hairdresser's since we had just moved to the area, i just said, "do whatever you think would look good". In the end, when she turned my chair around for me to see, I had the most amazing cut and color make-over that i am in love with, and have never had more compliments about my hair! Lesson learned is that sometimes we make mistakes, but never be afraid to try again, since the results may be even better than you could have imagined! :) <3
