I (18F) came into work about a week ago and my boss's boss was there. I work in the food service industry. My hair wasn't very long at all, barely to my collar, and I couldn't put it in a ponytail yet, but my boss's boss informed me that because my hair reached the collar of my shirt I had to either cut it or put it up (which it wasn't long enough to do, it also didn't help that it was layered).
For the record, I'd been trying to grow out my hair since a severe head injury caused me to have to get a large portion of my head shaved in Janurary 2019, so being told I had to cut it made me rlly upset. I made an appointment with my hairdresser, but rather than a warning, I recieved a write-up. Three and I'm fired. I got a second today when he came back in and I hadn't gotten a haircut yet because my hairdresser couldn't get me in on short notice.
So, I got pissed. I stewed about it all day and decided that the best route would to be to get a haircut after work. And I did.

I’m 32 years old and I have NEVER cried over any of the many haircuts I’ve had before, but this morning I cried the entire time I was getting ready for work.
I wear my hair short, and yesterday I asked for the back and sides to be shaved, which is a style I’ve had before and I love it. But I didn’t fully explain what I was going for and I now realize the photo I showed her wasn’t the best and I was wearing my field gear (men’s clothes) and I ended up with a VERY masculine cut.
I like a short, queer, even androgynous look but something about the lines and placement of this cut is so masculine and it’s just so not what I want. She took more off the top and back than I’d intended and I can’t salvage it until it grows back.
And now I’m on my way to the office where I’ll stand under fluorescent lights all day while my coworkers stare at the exposed back of my head (which is the part I’m most self-conscious about) and it’s just a lot right now.
I’m also upset at how upset a stupid ha... keep reading on reddit ➡
So Ive been talking to this girl Im into and finally decide to ask her out (this is my very first date ever and she hasn’t met me IRL). Obviously I’m super nervous/excited and what not, so I’m convinced by one of my roommates to get a fresh cut. Unbeknownst to me this would prove a terrible idea.
I arrive at the barbers and asked for my usual “zero fade on the sides and a little bit shorter on top, like a crew cut”. the barber says alright, asks if I’m sure thats what I want and I cluelessly agree... ten seconds later half of the hair on the top of my head is now 1cm long!
He pauses asking if this is alright and knowing full well that what has happened is irreversible I agree to let him finish and now look like a potato.
Had this of happened literally any other time I would’ve been fine but my date is literally, the next day! I called all my friends asking for their opinions and they agree that my hair is 3/10 and that I look weird.
Im super stressed out for tomorrow and I’m sup... keep reading on reddit ➡
These haircuts remind me of the Top Model makeovers in that they’re intentionally shocking. And to be honest, I think all three women looked better before. 😬
A few weeks back I got my anual haircut. I grow a long curly Afro all year and then (usually in May but early this year) I got my cut, I shave all my hair off and get a buzz cut. Before I got the cut I texted my entitled ma and asked if it was alright to cut it after school. She said “I’m gonna ask you to not but if you do I don’t really care”. So I’m thinking “sweet, I can get my haircut” because I thought she didn’t care. My buddies begged me to let them cut my hair and me being a good friend let them do it after school in one of our teachers rooms who gave us the okay to do that as long as we cleaned up. After I get my haircut I drive home and as soon as I walk in the door she goes “Oh my God you did it”. I said “yeah I did” and for about fifteen minutes she was ok with it then suddenly she goes “I HOPE YOU DIDN’T WANT TO GET EXPELLED BECAUSE I’M CALLING THE SUPER INTENDANT AND TELLING HIM WHAT YOU DID” completely assuming I did it at school. And why would she want to set me up for... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I have a twin sister and I’ve always made an effort to look different from her. Ever since elementary school I’ve been dying my a hair and keeping it super short. It’s personally important to me that we look different because I would prefer to be seen as an individual than half of a pair.
We both naturally have blonde hair and she usually keeps hers long, while mine was in a pixie cut (until I recently grew it out into a bob). Occasionally she has seen a color I’ve dyed my hair and wanted to do the same color because she liked the way it looked. And although on the inside I wasn’t super excited to hear she was coloring her hair to match mine, I never told her not to do it and would say it looked great one her.
So about a month ago a dyed my hair red and she did the same thing. I told her it looked good. Ever sense then, I’ve been wanting to change it so it will look different from hers again, so yesterday I stripped the red from my hair and went back to blonde (for the first time... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi! I'm trying to get help with multiple things so hopefully that's alright. Also this might be long but I thought a little bit about me would help.
I've been homeless for almost 2 years. I could come up with a few different reasons for how things got so bad. Losing my job, my girlfriend of 5 years breaking up with me, my best friend's suicide, my mental issues I wasn't dealing with, and of course being an alcoholic. It didn't happen all at once, but it happened slowly over the course of the past few years. Lots of stress and long hours from my job. A relationship that was more and more strained. Tons of bills piling up. Then all at once it just kinda fell apart. I was alright for a bit. Convinced myself I'd bounce back, but I never did. Just became used to the constant and anxiety and drinking. Couldn't do anything. Eventually even lost my car which as my only thing left and basically just didn't care anymore.
Then sometime last summer I just decided I needed to change and was eith... keep reading on reddit ➡
My sister has booked a hair dresser to come to her home to cut her hair. He's someone I've been to before at a salon setting and I love his work. He started out on his own hence the location.
She asked me two weeks ago if I wanted to get my hair cut, it's been almost a year and I want to get it done so I said yes please.
I reminded DH a week ago, a few days and today in the car I called sis and confirmed. Yet once we got home, he asks what that phone call was about, even though I had just obviously called her and confirmed tomorrows appt. That was the sole purpose of our 1-2 min phone call.
He then says that I can take all three kids aged 5, 3 and 1 with me because I will have people to help look after them. He doesn't get that I'll be busy getting my haircut and that I don't want to be making demands on my family to take care of my kids. I used to enjoy trips to the salon, some pampering/me time. I love my babies but I do need some me/grown ups only time. And if dh doesn't want... keep reading on reddit ➡
Although I don't have one
The title basically says it all.
Most salons have separate price ranges for men and women’s haircuts. The one I personally go to has a range of $25-$45 for a men’s haircut depending on the length. The range for a women’s haircut is $45-$90 depending on length. So a woman who has a super short basically men’s style haircut is still paying $45 compared to her male counterpart who will walk away only paying $25.
I think the price of the cut should be based purely on the length or complexity of the cut rather than any gender difference. It’s extremely frustrating when I’m paying $20 more for a haircut that is near identical to a cut my male friend gets.
I am not sure how unpopular this opinion is, but I have yet to see a hair salon that doesn’t have separate price ranges based on gender.
EDIT: I should clarify that I think the complexity of the haircut matters more than length since that’s really determining the amount of expertise or time needed for the cut. I just initially asso... keep reading on reddit ➡
When I go for a hair cut, I always wish that they would just be quite and cut my hair. I don't want to hear your life story, I just want my hair cut lol
I’m the assistant at my job, my boss booked him. I have to wash his hair and give him a shoulder massage. I’ve never told anyone what he did to me because he’s a family friend and my boss is also a family friend of mine and close with his mother. So I’m not sure what to do.
Edit-Thank you all so much for the support and kind messages. I appreciate this a lot and because of your advice I feel much more prepared moving forward.
