If you end up truly hating the results after your hairstylist spins around your chair to show you your new look, you should politely speak up. InStyle notes that whether you don’t like your new hair color or cut, most hairdressers would rather know the truth than have an unhappy client. From there, they can help you. Honesty is the best policy, as long as you remember to be respectful and appreciative.
While being truthful is typically the best way to handle this situation, some people might be too shy to say anything or may be unsure about their new hairdo but aren’t sure if they hate it. If you fall under these categories, Bustle shared some tips regarding what to do. To start, you shouldn’t freak out right away, as you may be more surprised by the new look rather than unhappy. If you think this could be the case, give yourself a couple of weeks — or at least a few days — to get used to the hairstyle and then see how you feel.
Furthermore, Bustle notes that you should experiment with different style techniques, such as curling your locks or parting them differently. Even vitamins meant to help your hair grow more quickly might help you! But if all else fails, you might need to revisit your hairstylist.
