Let’s be real; watching compilations of haircut fails is everyone’s guilty pleasure. The careful deliberation before the first snip is made, the calm assurance that it’ll look great, and the inevitable look of horror when they realize it’s all gone horribly wrong—these videos just never get old.

It may be entertaining to watch others deal with bad haircuts, but what happens if you’re the victim of one?

Hours of binge-watching Tiger King may have inspired you to try out bangs—we don’t blame you, Miley Cyrus did it too!—or you were itching to try something new. Either way, a hair-gone-wrong can leave a bad taste in your mouth.

The good news is, there are ways you can remedy a bad haircut with some tricks. Here are some you can try:

Accessorize smartly

Anyone who’s dealt with a questionable haircut knows that accessories are your best friend at this time. Not only will elaborate hair accessories distract from your less-than-flattering haircut, they’ll also adorn your hair perfectly.

Headbands, scarves, bandanas, bobby pins, and scrunchies are the perfect way to give your hair some much-needed pizzazz.

Try new styles

Change can be difficult to cope with, but it can be necessary sometimes. If your haircut has pushed you out of your comfort zone and gotten you out of the rut you’re in, consider it an opportunity to try something new.

Experiment with different hairstyles and try out new things that might flatter your new hair. Hot tools are useful at a time like this; you never know the magic of a curler or crimper until you try it!

New Haircut

Add some color

Whether you’re dealing with uneven layers or limp bangs, adding some color to your hair can help bring back some life to your hair. Haircuts that we tend to be less-than-pleased with tend to grow on us over time, so why not make the situation even better with a bold new color?

The right highlights, ombre, or pop of color will transform your whole look, leaving you wondering why you even disliked your haircut in the first place!


Many of us walk away from haircuts feeling like we lost too many inches. Dealing with the loss of your precious hair can be tough, especially if you’ve always loved long, flowing hair.

The good news is, hair extensions can fix about anything! Whether you want to remedy your hair’s length or need to add back some volume, extensions will seamlessly blend in and leave you with natural-looking hair.

At our salon in Houston, we install some of the best permanent, non damaging hair extensions. Using the original hair-loc system, you won’t have to worry about damaging your natural hair while the beautiful extensions give you the hair you dreamed of.
