I look like a boy.

Just that really.
Had my haircut yesterday. Stylist got a bit scissor happy. I've never cried about a haircut until now. It's so short. I can't tie it back at all. There's no length and I have sticky out ears so I can't even pin a little bit back for a change.
I didn't tell the stylist I wasn't happy as I didn't want to embarrass her but I emailed the manager and she has offered a refund and an appointment to sort it once it has grown out a bit.
I don't feel like me anymore sad

It will grow. Is it possible to see a picture. Sorry your upset. Often hairdressers don't seem to listen.

Aw that's a shame. It will grow.
I agree that some hairdressers don't listen to their clients. The last cut I had was too short as well. I wasn't upset about it because it was ok, but it wasn't what I asked for.

So sorry. How short is it?

BatCrapCrazy Sat 23-Aug-14 11:13:36

This is it sad

BatCrapCrazy Sat 23-Aug-14 11:15:43

Hate it

You look fantastic, and I'm not just saying that.
Longer would be duller. It's a good cut. Your hairdresser knows her stuff.

pictish Sat 23-Aug-14 11:17:57

And you certainly don't look like a boy...that's a woman's cut through and through.
You look like a stylish woman.

You have a really pretty face op. I think you really suit it (even though it's probably not what you want to hear). Emphasises your eyes and cheekbones.

So it's a graduated bob? I've had my hair cut like that before.
What about getting a fringe cut to soften it.

ElleDubloo Sat 23-Aug-14 11:20:33

You actually look gorgeous, really stylish. I'm sorry you don't like it. You're probably not used to your hair looking that way, but objectively speaking, you do look fabulous.

enormouse Sat 23-Aug-14 11:25:03

Maybe a few soft curls? like this? I think styling it like that would look gorgeous on you. And give you another way to style it.

furcoatbigknickers Sat 23-Aug-14 11:26:03

I LOVE it.... You are gorgeus.

furcoatbigknickers Sat 23-Aug-14 11:27:01

I'm sorry you don't like it.

Really pretty!

MrsDavidBowie Sat 23-Aug-14 11:30:00

You do not look like a boy. Why would you want to tie it back anyway when its cut in a style?
Mine is similar but even shorter with a fringe.
We both rock the look smile

It is honestly not a bad cut, it looks quite good actually. You have a pretty feminine face and DO NOT look like a boy.

I think you could try styling it 'messy' try curling it a little with straighteners or an iron and embrace the short length. I think it would look a lot more on trend and make you look you younger/hip in a messy style. Try flipping some sections outward with straighteners.

Yes yes to fringe, long and sideways sweeping I think if you part your hair on the side. Is it the back you don't like? Was it graduated too high? I have had this done before and I hated it, side profile of the cut was particularly brutal.

Gorgeous haircut and suits you. My hair is like that but shorter. You most definitely do not look like a boy!

BatCrapCrazy Sat 23-Aug-14 11:39:59

I did have a full fringe but have put it to the side as I felt it was too dramatic with the cut so short. The cut itself isn't bad at all. It's just far shorter than I imagined it would be

AliceInGallifrey Sat 23-Aug-14 11:50:10

I love it. You have good cheek bones and the perfect shape face for the cut - I agree with the others that your hairdresser knows their stuff.

I have a similar face shape and have a pixie cut so to me your hair isn't short. I think it will grow on you smile

WitchWay Sat 23-Aug-14 12:24:27

It's lovely & looks well-cut, so it ought to keep its shape as it grows.

What was it like before?

TeeManyMartoonis Sat 23-Aug-14 12:27:11

I really like it! Give it a few days and you may well too. But, having said that, I know the feeling of hating a cut.

chockbic Sat 23-Aug-14 12:28:51

It looks really nice. If its layered you can muss it up a bit. Or slick it back. Still do things if you get bored.

WildBillfemale Sat 23-Aug-14 12:56:32

I was expecting to have to make something up when I scrolled down and saw you had posted a picture - I don't, it looks lovely and you don't look like a boy. It's fresh young and chic!

It's fab! I'd kill for hair like that. Hope it grows on you grin
