Bad hair day

By grow_fasterrr - - This FML is from back in 2010 but it's good stuff - Canada

Today, I went to get a trim. However, follow-up damage control at home afterward shouldn't really be necessary on a fifty dollar haircut. FML

ydi for spending fifty dollars on a trim.

50 bucks?!? You serious, pal? Stop winking at yourself in the mirror and shave your goddamn head already.

16- tons of people pay $50 for a haircut. not everyone goes to great clips. some of us want our hair to look good.

#22 Yes but her hair didnt look good she would have been better off taking a gamble at a cheaper place

YDI for paying $50 for a hair cut. My hair cuts are fine for just $10.

25 & 28 - I agree. I read it a bunch of times and took it to mean that she got home an had to go into "damage control" to justify a $50 haircut to her husband or whatever. The 'I wasn't happy with my haircut' version makes sense now, but sweet baby Jesus this FML was horribly written.

am i the only one who got this the first time around? >< anyway, before i leave the barber's, i scrutinize the everlasting **** out of my hair. i hate having a bad cut that i have to fix. that's what i'm paying your ass for. the same goes for women. don't let your hairdresser **** you over. didn't they give you a mirror?? |the kid|

22- Aren't we shallow? I've gotten crappy haircuts by day spas before that charge $45. I've been doing hair for 10 yrs. now. I also have a 95% request rate. You don't know what you're talking about, so STFU!!! Have a great day, shallow girl!!

I got it on the first try. *sigh* America is getting less and less literate.

22 - Some cheaper places ($20 and under) DO give good cuts. I have yet to find one, but that's beside the point. I don't mind paying $40 for my hair cut, as long as they do a good job. Now, the salon I go to has an excellent reputation, and I've never received a bad cut from there, which is why I don't mind going and spending a little more than I should.

Hey everyone! Apparently, if you can't understand this FML in the first few seconds you read it, you're an illiterate failure who belongs on the streets! Sarcasm aside, it is worded badly. (Ex. Saying follow-up and afterward is just being redundant.) Insulting the literacy of others like this is dumb. -_-

Huh? i didn't understand this FML at all!

22- yes people want to look good, but not everyone ***** 50 dollars on a TRIM. just because a place us cheap doesn't mean it sucks. for example I cut hair from home for around 5-10 dollars, people always send their friends my way. all I use is a $7 hair razor.

Just make sure you don't go back to the same salon. Let's see...$50 for a trim, and shaving would involve a lot more hair, so... $250 to shave your head. Have a seat right here. So where are you from?

That's not a lot. Especially if they have their hair styled like mine. Maybe she has a sidecut, (like me!) mohawk, or dreadlocks. Thenit would cost $50. Mine usually costs $90 for a cut and dye. And before you call me a spoiled brat, I need to get a 3.75+ GPA (out of 4) to get it done. So I work for it.

$50 for a trim? Really? It costs me $15 for a trim. My girlfriend pays $20 for hers so either you got extremely long hair or you got ripped off big time.

In a mid-sized city, $50 for a cut in a salon that's a step up from the strip mall places is about average.

I get my hair cut for $Free.99 I have long hair and I plan on keeping it that way. (and I get a trim every now and then from my mommy :-D. ******* love my mom... I'm 19 btw...)

I agree with SOMA, but even in non-urban places, $50 may be reasonable for the type of cut being trimmed. When I lived more, er, rural places, I always paid at least $40 for a decent trim on my shorter styles. The cheaper salons could never seem to differentiate between "feminine pixie cut" and "classic three year old boy cut." I've also (unfortunately) been in this OP's position. A stylist made a god-awful mistake, and every attempt to fix it looked worse. No one else was available to help, so I finally just paid, left, and went elsewhere. I would have refused to pay, but she was a friend of a friend. Never made that mistake again.

$50 for a real haircut, I can understand, $50 for a trim (trim meaning keeping hair in the same style, and not cutting more than an inch or two off) seems a bit unreasonable to me. But that still doesn't mean OP deserves it. If you pay for any sort of service, it ought to be done correctly.

50 bucks?!? You serious, pal? Stop winking at yourself in the mirror and shave your goddamn head already.

it's her hair we're talking about it always has to look good.

$50!? Honey, I have an afro and not even I would pay that much for a trim!
