I just got my hair cut for
the new school year, and it looks awful! The stylist didn’t listen
to me at all – it’s too short and looks nothing like what I
wanted. What can I do to fix it?
Here’s the good news: Hair grows
back! Although it’ll take some time, you’ll eventually get back
your old ‘do, good as new. But until then, here are some smart
solutions for fixing a horrible hair cut.
Pile on the pins
Yikes – unflattering fringe got you
down? Grab fun pins or hair barrettes and sweep it over the top of
your head, like a half up do. Secure it with bright clips, and no
one will even bat an eye.
Super short cut? Make like Emma Watson,
and show off how chic a boy cut can be. Use a little gel to give your
short strands some texture – it’s magic!

You used to have straight hair – but
now that it’s short, it’s gone all curly! Don’t freak, it’s
totally normal. Without the weight of your long locks, your hair
springs into its natural shape. Either grab a straight iron or enjoy
your gorgeous curls – try a product made specifically for curly
hair to get more control.

Most of all, be patient! It’s not
permanent, and it’s definitely not the end of the world. Own your
new ‘do with confidence, and no one will even notice – except to
compliment you on your fierce new haircut. Good luck!
