About five months ago, I got the worst haircut of my life, so I instantly wondered how to survive a bad haircut. I was seriously tempted to spend the rest of the year sequestered in my house with the blinds drawn, but instead I called my usual stylist and made an appointment for that same day. Here’s all of the advice she gave me on how to survive a bad haircut, not that I’ll need them again now that I’ve learned my lesson about cheating on my stylist with some hack (pun intended).
1. See Your Own Stylist
This is the first in my suggestions of how to survive a bad haircut because it’s important that you do it, right away, after the original, horrible cut. Your own stylist, the one you rely on a few times a year, will already know how to talk you off the ledge, communicate with you about a fix, and how to work with your hair. She won’t laugh at your misfortune, though she might give you a gentle “I told you not to trust anyone else!”
