Bit of a rant, just thought I'd warn you...

I start back at school tomorrow after leaving in April this year and to tell you the truth, I'm a little nervous about it for a number of reasons, one being that we go on retreat for 3 days out of town which is a big thing.

So to (Try to) make a 'good impression' on everyone I thought I'd have a shave and whatnot to look a bit more presentable (Or 'handsome' as my Nonna would say, bless her) and right at the last minute this afternoon just before all the hairdressers in town closed I thought I'd get a hair cut.

I went into the usual place where I get it done and talked to the girl there (She's really pretty too, that's one of the reasons I get my hair cut there, lol ) about fitting me in on such short notice, but there would be no appointments until Friday morning, which wouldn't suit because I wouldn't be here. So I left there and went into the barber's across the street from there where you don't need an appointment and sat down.

Now I just wanted my hair 'Neatened up a little around the sides and back, not too much of the length though', and those are THE EXACT WORDS I USED WHEN I TOLD THE STUPID WOMAN WHAT I WANTED DONE. 5 minutes later she's cut my hair and I don't know how she got the words:

'I'll pay you $15 for you to cut my hair so that it looks like you've sat a bowl upside down on my head and trimmed around it with some craft scissors'
out of
'Neatened up a little around the sides and back, not too much of the length though'.

So my hair looks ****ing ridiculous right now and it's less than 12 hours until I leave for school and I have no way of getting anyone to fix it up for me because she cut it WAY too short and crappy and now I'm gonna look like a 4 year old tomorrow.

So much for trying to look good and making an impression...

Oh man... that's happened to me before.

Wear a hat, I guess.

Can you post a picture? I'm sure we can think of something.

This is why you go to nice expensive places. You should've waited, maybe gotten a girlie friend of yours to trim it for you.
But sorry, I know how bad it feels when you have a horrible haircut. Happens to everyone.

Sorry, I haven't got a camera, or I would.

Maybe I can find a picture of a similar haircut on the net an post it...

EDIT: Heck, this is pretty close to what it looks like (Not me, random Google image)

horrible haircuts suck. I had grown my hair for about 3 years, without a problem. Until I got my sister to give it a trim, neaten it up, throw in some layers. Things go fine, until she says: "Ben, get the clippers..."

Bitch cut a huge chunk out the back of my head. I WAS GOING OFF TO UNI THE NEXT BLOODY DAY FOR THE FIRST TIME. I lost my hair

Yeah, wear a hat as someone else already suggested.

Or you could go to school with it tomorrow and just shave it off completely when you get back home that day. At least that way it won't look ridiculous. Just shave it so it's all level, doesn't have to be skin bald or a very close shave.
#9
Damn, i'm in a similar situation. Got my haircut a few days ago, told the hairdresser "just a little bit off", so obviously I must've meant "cut half the hair off my head". Meh, i'm just wearing a hat for the rest of the week.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

Pics or it didn't happen!

But seriously, if you dislike the hair dresser, spread the word. I'm sure the barber that you like across the street will be more that happy to make them look bad.

Oh my god... with the shaved bits above the ears?

Well, you could try parting it at one side- so you've got a side fringe and loads of hair on one side, and the other side is shaved. A lot of people do that... It might not be your style, but it's probably better than that.

I'll keep thinking.

Yeah, but not quite as high, only a little bit above the ears.

Thanks for the suggestion too, I'll think of something in the morning I guess

I don't look very good with buzzed hair... Although it's a suggestion I'm considering right now

i've learnt that you have to be specific in millimeters, but seriosuly just shave it and leave it a little short and who knows, you might look better!

people who think that the tuning peg things have to be straight. I went to the bathroom once, I come back, and my friend detunified my guitar, and then asked why it sounded weird. ARGG!!!

Not always...

if you care for your hair pretty well you won't get many. Instead of a "cut" per say a very tiny trim on the ends works good for long hair, I do that about every month. Though I don't know if it makes any difference.
#19
wait a second... that picture looks VERY mohawkable...

I have no way of shaving it off now though, it's 10 at night and I don't even know of anyone who owns clippers.

Rabid- No it's not an undercut.
#26
no clippers of any kind in the house? Even a beard trimmer with the longest guard on it would work.

Dude, mohawk, do it.

I've thought about skipping school, but it's a fairly important thing going on the retreat and I can't/don't really want to miss it.
#35
Theres your icebreaker man. Now you can make fun of yourself a little bit and can tell the other people what happened. Turn it to your advantage by not taking yourself too seriously.


Or a mohawk....
I've got something in my front pocket for you.
Why don't you reach down in my pocket and see what it is?
Then grab onto it, it's just for you.
Give a little squeeze and say: "How do you do?"

Who knows. Maybe it's just because I'm a little nervous about going back that I'm so worried about it (Not that THAT haircut isn't anything to worry about) but yeah.

I'll be right, maybe I'll start a new trend at school


(I doubt it )
