Hi, I'm Carlos, back on here at Bumblebumble, at downtown New York. I'm here to talk about what you do if you have a bad haircut. It's some easy ideas that lets you fix yourself at home, and also how to prevent this from happening in the future. I think that it's always important that you go back to the stylist who cut your hair. There's a lot of times it is just a little quick fix, and all you really need to do is that cut into the hair a little bit, it's a technique that we called point cutting, and it's actually really easy to do at home. You wanna get your bang section, instead of cutting it straight across, you actually just wanna point into the hair, must have the slight diagonal. You're taking weight out, and you're trimming the length of the hair at the same time. You're giving your bang a little more movement, and then they brought them up to your jaw line which I think is a little bit more of a flattering length for her as well. And then also, sometimes when the layers are too heavy, it can create a feeling of the hair having no movement. So, this is a little more of an advance technique, and I would be careful at home, that it something you can have your stylist do it, and I'll just taking the weight out of a layer, removing weight from the hair. Wanna take some of that length though, you just point in to the hair, but it's gonna leave that line a little softer, it's a good way if you get rid of this split ends as well. So now, we just need a little bit of something like that. Okay, so I'm gonna talk about how to sort of mask the bad haircut with styling. I'm gonna put in a little [unknown] to let down the hair a little. Krista has pretty straight hair, but when you kinda round with it and put some products, it's a little a sort of a cream- a touch of cream, and just that, because actually, keeping the hair a lot of movement, and it kinda mask what you don't like about the hair. And it also looks very like modern, and fresh. Another thing you can do is really accused a feeling like you wanna put your hair back, I mean to show you a very [unknown], I like to use it instead of a rubber band and bungee, kinda anchor it in, I'm gonna do something sort of off to the side, I think it's really pretty on her. I'm gonna do a little teasing, and you just take the hair, wrap it around, take some body pins, and then pin it in a little bit of a really light hairspray nothing with a [unknown]. And then, it just give you kinda really soft, natural, fine up to. This one, I think it's always nice to put a high pony tail, take the hair, and smooth it out just a little bit, it doesn't have to be perfect. But it gets with a shape and it makes it kinda fun. It's just a lot of flyaways, and I just gotta calm it with my hand, twist it around, don't think about it too much, there you go, that's an easy way to fix a bad haircut. But, I also wanna talk about how you would prevent from getting bad haircuts in the future. An inspiration picture is always nice, it's not always gonna be an exact interpretation of what you want. If you're not happy, when you're still in the chair, it's always a good idea to let your stylist know. Also know that your stylist is trying to make you happy, and they want a happy customer, they want their clients to leave happy, and they still get about their hair.
