View Full Version : How to get the cut you want?

Okay, a lot of us have stories about getting more taken off than we want. But how can we prevent getting more cut than we want?

Is there some secret formula to walking into MasterCuts and not losing a foot of hair more than I asked for? Some of us aren't willing to self-trim and don't have anybody trusted to go to.

I know we have some hairdressers on here: how can we help you understand what we want? What about any colleagues of yours who might be less skilled or careful?

Bring a ruler and SHOW what you want. Make the stylist repeat your wishes. If you have a clear photo, bring that too. Be as specific as you can. Don't generalize with what you want..and don't let the stylist tell you what you want is unrealistic or not the fashion or any other malarkey. Stick to your guns. If the stylist won't do as you wish, find someone who will! Good luck!
