what should I do ? Its not like its that noticeable but its more that I know I wont make much progress if I need to even it up later..Its just been cut short like with the layers I have but I was at the hairdresser yesterday and she suggested letting it grow out cause if it was cut suddenly to that length id have a bob.. its just one piece in the front that shouldn't be like that.. I don't know whether it'll even out and blend in as it grows longer down a bit ? What would you do in that situation ? I just got my hair chopped to this length recently and I'm annoyed that this has happened.. :/ and not really willing to go any shorter but this is driving me ad at the same time.. think I have hair paranoia..anyway heres pics, please be brutally honest in what I should do! Thanks xx


Its just such a small piece of hair that I don't want to cut it up to my shoulders as it would be too dramatic for me and I think in a few months it'll blend a bit better ? My hemline looks perfectly fine, its just this shorter section that's bothering me as its just below shoulders and kind of sits out unless I straighten it down and keep it straightened.

I'd let it grow out, before you chop even more.

I understand your concern, but what really stood out for me is this : " SLIGHTLY uneven" , because that's where your answer is I think. I mean this nicely! Hair grows at uneven rates, and often either the front or the back grows faster as you grow your hair longer. It only gets longer by not cutting it. I will probably even itself out gradually, and nobody will notice it. You notice it as you're looking closely at your hair and want a blunt hemline. Which is fine, but please put the scissors away and look at the situation again further down the road. Your hair does look lovely. Try wearing it up as you can, it helps your hair and the worry over your ends. I have fine straight hair and I have the unevenness worry myself.

I'd grow it out as well.

I'm confused, don't you have layers? In which case your hair would be full of different lengths anyway? Tbh even if you didn't have layers, your hair would never be even anyway. Hair doesn't grow at the same rate.

Im sorry you are dealing with this. I also had one very uneven chunk from a bad haircut so i know how frustrating it can be. It will take a total of two years to get it even with the rest of my hair without losing a lot of length. Im already through over one year and i will say with time it is blending in better. What has helped me is always wearing my hair up so i don't have to look at it. Sometimes i think i would've been happier just cutting it in the beginning and then actually enjoying growing out nice even hair instead of spending two years frustrated, but i couldn't bring myself to do it. I guess you have to decide for yourself what will make you feel most content when you look in the mirror - length or evenness. Its a tough decision.

Forgot to add, FWIW, your uneven part is barely noticeable, i don't think it looks bad at all.

For a little thing like that? Just leave it alone and let it grow at whatever rate it's going to grow. You will ALWAYS have shorter hairs that are coming in to replace hairs that you shed, and you'll have more that don't go all the way down longer your hair gets. It's totally normal. Just trim occasionally if you think it's getting too uneven or the ends are too thin for your liking, and don't stress about it. :)

I have several shorter chunks. The last time I went and got my hair done by a "professional" she cut my hair into some really choppy, goofy looking lumpy layers. I micro trim every 4 months now but otherwise I let it grow. I wear it up most of the time and don't fuss with it. I't slowly but surely catching up with the rest!

Mine lays uneven because one side of my head has a slight wave to it. It's in updos nearly all the time anyway so I don't care that it is uneven. I also have some super short sections from all the pre-job offer drug tests. Yippee. Just ignore it. No cut necessary.

You could put your hair up in ways that hides it and just let it grow until you hit a length where you can get it evened up.

I can't see the picture, but I'd say let it grow. It will be less painful to grow out that little chunk that will eventually blend in your hair than start again from shoulder just for having the perfectly even hemline. :)

My hair is completely uneven as I grew out from bald so I have 8" difference in the overall length. See my massive fairytale ends? I won't cut, it can grow as long as it wants. Unevenness does not bother me at all.

^ This. My ends are uneven, but to stop myself from being bothered by it, I always have it up. When it gets to a much longer length, then I'll go ahead and even it out because I won't be too bothered with losing a few inches if my hair is already long. I'll just grow it a few inches past the length that I have in mind (classic) and then cut it back to classic. Try to ignore the uneven hemline and don't be tempted to cut until you've reached at least one of your goal lengths!
