Thread: Your Worst Hair Decision

    Default Your Worst Hair Decision

    A thread about the WORST choice you have ever made (hair-wise) and why. Just for people contemplating these things, take a look here first - you might be surprised that most things don't turn out at you hoped!

    I had to say perm and cut - the perm was when I was in second or third grade and was my mom's choice (back when I didn't own my hair...) I looked like a poodle threw up on my head.

    And in high school I got angry with the rats nest that is my hair and chopped it from hip to chin length... I forgot to take into account the fact that, when short, my hair has so much bounce to it that it's ridiculous. Not only did I have that flipped out curl at the ends (think... what was it, 50s or 60s? I know you can see it in some black and white sitcoms, but I can't remember which ones), but there was just nothing to weigh it down and it was awful. God, I couldn't WAIT for that one to grow out.

    The worst decision I made was brainwashing myself into getting my hair cut into an undercut bob when I was twelve years old. Before that, it was somewhere between tailbone and classic length. I miss my hair.

    The next worst thing was getting my hair permed. I looked like a Hobbit, which isn't terribly helpful if you are very petite like I am and often get mistaken for a 10-year-old. Ugh. The perm totally ruined my hair and I couldn't even get a comb through it... in the shower... slathered in conditioner.... Oh, and did I mention the curly fringe?

    For me it was the first time I high lighted, which is a never ending journey once you start, subsequent damage which then lead to me getting my hair cut into a Bob.

    Several years ago, I got my hair cut in what was supposed to be an armpit-length lioness shag. What I got, however, was a just-past-shoulder-length mullet. It was hilarious, in the most horrifying way possible.

    I will never cut my hair again. Ever.

    layers They take forever to grow out and the stylists always cut them too short for me to cope with.

    For me, it was bleaching out black dye, then getting the same hair chemically straightened a few months later. Talk about some scary splits...they were traveling up to my ears! Fortunately, all that hair was cut off long ago!

    having my hair dyed black as a young teen. I wasn't interested in the maintenance and ended up growing out the demarcation line for aaages
    don't know whether your hair is brown or red? us neither!
    hit my length goal of tailbone ... now learning to maintain and aiming to reduce split ends!
