if you look at the makeover section (under gallery) of bumble & bumble's site, there are two gorgeous curlies with gorgeous curls, and they just hack them to pieces. shameful.

    :shock: They look hideous! April looks almost like she has bald spots and she's all spiky - and Katie really should be hiding her face. Ugh is right. Now I'm convinced not to buy Bumble & Bumble products - not exactly their desired effect. :lol:
    OMG, LOOK!!

    ...It's a siggie. :shock:

    Why would anyone do that? The 'stylist' surely can't think they made the models look good afterwards?

    Horrible. Horrible. Horrible. April's makeover especially depressed me.

    I agree, they all looked beautiful and the stylist (I use the term loosely) did a real "hatchet job" on them...very sad.

    Their hair was gorgeous before. I loved April's hair before she had the makeover. I agree with all of you- this is horrible (especially April's).

    They left home that morning looking beautiful and came home looking horrible. I wonder if they cried?

    Wow. :shock:

    Their hair was beautiful. Why oh why would they do that? The stylist really did a number on their makeunders. :roll:

    Darn, they all had such pretty hair. I'm not impressed with the "after" either. :cry:

    I had my hair cut at Bumble and Bumble about 6 or 7 years ago.....Just an average haircut, I didn't like it and never went back....

    I can never understand a hairdresser who would cut a curly heads hair into a style that she couldn't wear curly.....would they cut a straighties hair in a style that had to be curled every day???

    I can tell you why they did such hatchet jobs- because B&B apparently doesnt train their stylists to work on anything but straight thin hair. I went to one of their model calls yesterday and was told my (quite loose curls) was too difficult for students, mostly because it was too thick. So I was rejected after waiting in line for 45 mins (and after filling out an online profile that I was quite honest on). Others with similar hair - even less curly- were also rejected. If none of the students ever get their hands on thick or curly hair no wonder its hard to find someone who knows what they are doing. Im certainly never giving them my money.

    . . . Why would they DO something like that??? And the main page says they go for refined looks? Refined to WHAT?

    My heart broke when I saw April's atrocious hair! She looks like a toddler with super curly hair who just woke up from a nap. You know what I mean? Hair is all standing on end like they got electrocuted with big knots and tangles at the back of the head and cookie crumbs and lint stuck in the knots? Are they kidding?

    OMG I would sue the living beJEEZUS out of B&B if I went in there for a haircut and that was the end result!

    I wonder what her hair looks like now once she styles as usual. Probably all uneven with curls sticking out at odd ends and angles. Horrible.

    Can we leave feedback on their site?

    ETA: Yes they do have a feedback section!
