help


can anyone in nyc with slightly wavy hair recommend a good stylist, not too pricey? I just got my hair cut and I hate it. somehow, hair stylists always assume I like my hair straight and blown out, and cut it that way. I don't! I hate blown-out straight hair! last time, even after telling the stylist that I like my hair wavy, she went ahead and did it that way. not to mention that she was 45 minutes late for the appointment, then had to rush through the cut. when i told her at the end that I wanted more taken off the sides, she butchered it up. now it doesn't fall correctly. honesty, I feel like a sap in the hands of a hair dresser. I try to watch what they're doing and not correct them while they're in process, but it always seems to backfire in my face. the picture above is what I brought to the stylist before this one. somehow, she left long pieces in the front, even though it is clear from the photo that the sides are shorter.

help!

your hair TOTALLY looks like that.

you just have to keep your head tilted down 24-7.

Hi - I'm new to your blog :) But I go to this place called Woodley & Bunny in Williamsburg and a girl named Jacole (spelling?? it's like Nicole with a J). I have super curly hair and she does a great job... so maybe she'd be good at the wavy too?

Good luck!

dash said...

I don't know if I trust you- your only clients are Lee and Gary.

Still no class, trust me.

I'm fairly confident I can tell fact from fiction on life of dug. now I've got my sister reading it. she's a little confused.
