Ways to fix razor cut?

Help! A stylist just used razor scissors to thin out my 3A hair— she used them on my dry hair and the result was disastrous. Jagged uneven ends, split ends and frizz galore, and no curl left.

I don’t know what to do! I fear going to another stylist isn’t an option because it’s already much too short is places (coming to about my shoulder at its longest) but I also can’t do anything with it besides pull it back into a bun. Just awful. Any suggestions?? Is this something a curly hair stylist can even fix?

    I think the only way to fix it is to have it cut again.  Depending on how far up she razored it, it might need to be cut really short.  If you don't want to do that, then I think the only solution is to wait for it to grow.  I feel for you - the last non-Deva cut I got my stylist did that to me.

    Sorry that happened to you @Meghanke!  Ditto @Guide 65 You'll either need to get it recut (and hopefully find someone good to do it) or let it grow out. Frustrating.

    I'm so sorry this happened to you. My only other suggestion is keep working your hair care routine to keep your hair healthy and hydrated. Likely the frizz will settle down in a few days, and your curls and clumps will come back.
