    I can't sleep. Every time I think of or notice my hair, I want to cry. I'm surprised at myself for how much I'm reacting to this - but I'm afraid that this is this worst haircut I've received in a long time. =(

    I have long since avoided cheaper salons (i.e. First Choice, under $20 deals). But I have been more satisfied at such salons because at least one can justify - you get what you pay for. My friend had recommended this particular stylist at Evoke because he's supposed to be more "senior". I should've double-checked his credentials because the cut I received was far from professional.

    There is no question that the superficial services - friendliness of staff, atmosphere, etc - were all impressive. I was actually feeling pretty positive even after I left the salon, ignoring a small nagging feeling that something was not quite right about having a wash, cut and dry all within less than half an hour of wash, cut and dry despite the length of my hair (mid-back). I'm not one to argue with efficiency. But efficiency does not necessarily translate into effectiveness as I discovered when I got home: once my hair was completely dry, the layers were inconsolably choppy and unfinished. Nonetheless, I thought I'd give it a day. The real test of a good cut comes after you wash it yourself and let it dry naturally...

    To be honest I was really hoping to be wrong (perhaps I was being over-sensitive). Unfortunately, when the final "shape" (or lack thereof) emerged, I was devastated - the cut is officially awful! Even one of my guy friends (who normally shaves his head) was able to comment that I could've had it cut by a student hairdresser.

    So I called and left a message with the salon and am hoping to have it fixed...although now I'm scared because I don't even know how capable they are of doing so. I would be more tempted to get it fixed elsewhere had I not already spent $75 on this nightmare. I hope they will give me a refund.

    Evoke did call me back and were welcome about having me back to fix the problem. Unfortunately my schedule has made it difficult for me to find the time to go back. As it happened, I've come to accept that my haircut is not so awful but just average. Oh well. Next time I'm going to spend $75, I'm going back to Toni & Guy.
