I keep going to fancy salons with good reputations and ratings, but I never come out with good hair.
Today I went in and gave them this picture: link
After four hours in the chair, I ended up looking like this: link
Now I have terrible hair (my family literally laughed at me when I got home) and I'm out $150.
Does anyone else have this problem?

I usually have a problem finding a hairdresser that cuts my hair to my liking. A lot of times too because I have thick hair that is long, they often complain and b**** about it the whole time. I don't like that, it doesn't seem professional. Everyone has different hair types and they are there to cut hair. I finally found a hairstylist I love and she is great. Doesn't complain or rush through a cut, and is very nice and also very professional.
I would ask friends for recommendations because that is oftentimes how you find good people. When someone has a bad experience we always hear about that salon. I also wouldn't equate price for quality hair dressers. There can be a really pricey salon because there may be a couple great stylists, while the rest are okay. I have had amazing haircuts from places that have charged me 30 or 40 bucks. You don't have to pay through the nose for good haircuts.
I would go and visit the salon first. Say you are looking for a new stylist and would love to take a look around and meet some of their stylists. That way you can talk to them about your concerns and also see what the salon is like. See if the stylists actually listen to what their clients say, I have had hairdressers tell me what I should want and I don't think that is right either. It is my hair and it should be how I like it, it only makes sense since I am going to be wearing it for a while. So I can totally identify with how you feel.
Sometimes it just comes down to trying out a few different salons and hoping one works out. In time you will find someone how is great at what they do and cuts your hair the way you want it done :)0
