Have you ever found yourself wondering how you let a bad haircut happen? If so, you're not alone. In fact, haircut regret is something a lot of guys have to face from time to time, be it as a result of embarrassment, excessive politeness in the barber's chair, or just plain old bad decision making. The good news is there are a few ways you can deal with a less than perfect haircut while it grows out. Check them out below!
1/ Accept responsibility
If your uninspiring new look is a direct result of your own bad planning or due to the fact you stayed a little too quiet during the cut, don't get mad at your barber or stylist. Instead, own the mistake, and ask them for help fixing it.
2/ Don't be shy
On the other hand, if the person cutting your hair did something wrong, don't hesitate to speak up. Just make sure you do so articulately and, more importantly, respectfully. They probably feel bad enough already, and being rude won't change the situation on your dome. And anyway, you can always go somewhere else.
3/ Add texture
For the lucky ones who end up with length to play around with, use some flexible hold product to change up the texture and overall shape of your mane. This won't remedy the problem entirely, but it will tide you over until you can brave another haircut.
4/ Cover it up
Out of sight, out of mind, right? Almost. Thank you, hats.
5/ Grow it out
Well, duh, but there is a right way to grow your hair out. When you're battling with a haircut you can't stand, awkward tufts and weird silhouettes aren't going to improve your look. So, stay on top of things by getting regular trims. A professional will be able to taper and texturize your strands as necessary to get them back to where you want them as soon as possible.
