I'm so upset! For two years I've been growing my hair out and it was mid-back length, with the intention of getting a perm so I would have long loose curls for our upcoming cruise.. I had my hair app't on Saturday and at the salon where I go it's a differant person to perm that usually cuts my hair, I've never had him before.. So before he started he said that he needed to take a bit on length off the ends, already knowing that would probably be the case I was ok with it. He had me stand up so he could do it, then sat me back down for my wash. Then he took me over to put in the rods. After the perm was complete, my regular hairdresser gave me my style and I thought it looked a little short and I couldn't see any curls( I wear glasses) I mentioned to her it looked like a perm that was 6 months old or so, and everyone at the front desk knew I wasn't too sure I liked it. The perm guy was called up and he said to give it a few days, wash it and it should bounce back to curls... And if I wasn't happy I should call him(he guarantees his work ) And he would make the layers a little shorter or re-perm. Needless to say, I washed and used a diffuser with curl enhancing shampoo/cond. and mouse. It just looks like I slept with braids and took them out. There's some fullness, but no curl. And the worst of it??? He took about 7 inches off, it's just at my shoulder!! My hair grows extremely slow, took two years to go from my shoulder to mid-back!! So now he's going to want to cut more, which I don't want or re perm which I'm really scared about doing! My hair is fine, and I'm worried it will fall out then I'll look just gorgeous for this cruise!! I told him I wanted long loose curls like Taylor Swift-like...this is so far from what I had envisioned! He didn't listen to me at all, he had a bit of an ego and just did what he wanted....ugh! Sorry everyone, I just had to vent to all my Dis-councellors who have helped my plan this trip for the last two years!!
