Anyone who’s ever ended up with a shockingly bad haircut knows what it feels like. You just want to curl up and die, or crawl into a dark hole and not come out again until your hair is long enough to work into something more presentable.
There’s always hope, though. Bad haircuts don’t last forever, and eventually, your hair will grow out. Of course, until then, you have two choices: live with that ugly haircut, or find another stylist to reshape what’s left of your hair.
You can avoid this whole mess by following the tips in this article. Take these lessons to heart, and you’ll never again have to go through a hair disaster!

1. The Number-One Essential: Good Communication
Even if you're friends with your hairdresser, he or she can't read your mind.
Saying something like, I don't know what I want to do with my hair; surprise me! is practically asking for disaster. Whatever your hairdresser decides to do is what you'll have to live with - and his or her idea of what looks good on you may be very different from yours.
Tell your hairdresser exactly what you want, every time. Be as specific about it as you possibly can. If it's hard to come up with the words to describe what you want in detail, there's no shame in bringing a picture with you.
2. Never Ask A Hairdresser To Copy A Celebrity's Hairstyle
That said, if the picture you bring is a photo of a model or celebrity, you may be in for trouble. All those photos are staged and taken by professionals, and then retouched.
That perfect, gorgeous hairstyle you see in the picture may well have taken a professional hairstylist (or even two of them!) all day to create, not to mention the professional photographers who captured it.
Furthermore, you may not have the right type of hair for the hairstyle you want to copy. If the model in the picture has thick, wavy hair and you have thin, straight hair, you're not going to get that exact look, because your hair won't hold that style.
3. Ask Friends To Recommend Hairstylists
If you have someone in your circle of friends whose hair always looks perfect, ask her who her hairdresser is.
Then, do whatever it takes to make an appointment with that person. His or her appointments probably fill up quickly, so when you speak to the receptionist, ask him or her to call you as soon as a slot opens up on the hairdresser's calendar.
4. Never Get A New Hairstyle On Your First Visit
When you go to a new hairdresser for the first time, never ask him or her to give you a brand-new hairstyle. Just ask him or her for a trim.
How well he or she does at this simple task will give you an idea of how well this hairdresser can follow your instructions, and how well you communicate with each other. If you ask him or her to do something drastic before you've gotten to know each other, you probably won't be happy with the results.
