Bad hair cut... help!!

BernadetteJBernadetteJ Posts: 6Registered Users
I went and got a "health cut" with lots of layers and some inverting (?), and at the length that my hair was this WOULD be the perfect cut, but the stylist took off 4-6 inches to much. Now I look like I'm growing out a curly mullet. :angry8:

So this morning I tried my new AS I AM and Curls products, and my hair is curlier than it has ever been even in places that have always been flat... great right? Well the curls are so tight the top and front only come to my cheek bones.

I do not have a stylist I trust and I really don't wanna risk loosing more length to try and fix this cut, I know in a couple months it will look fine. The problem is the cut only looks somewhat decent straight and I don't wanna flat iron for two months and make my hair thinner and more unhealthy.

Any ideas for half updo's or ANYTHING to do till it grows out a little? (Also, it's short in the front for a ponytail).

Thanks!

    I recently got a bad haircut as well. It looks terrible! But my normal stylist moved and didn't leave a number, so I've been desperately trying to find someone new. I have been using bobby pins to pin back parts that are troublesome (especially in the front) or pulling my hair up into a ponytail (not exactly how I'd like to wear my hair, but it makes me stop worrying about it). I'm sorry I don't have any better options! Best of luck!
