Bad haircuts. I cringe at the thought! Unless you’re among a very, very lucky few … you’ve had at least ONE of them in your time, right? Perhaps you wanted “just a trim” and left with a pixie cut. Or maybe you wanted to check out a cute layered look and walked out looking like a mushroom. As traumatizing as bad haircuts are, can you IMAGINE being a celebrity and having to endure the agony of a hair hack job with the entire world looking on? A bad haircut happened to Pink a few days ago, and, never one to shy away from an opportunity to say what’s on her mind, she did what any modern famous person would do and fired back at her haters on Twitter. Pink, we feel your pain—and we just so happen to have some face-saving—or hair-saving, rather—advice from celebrity hair care expert Philip B. on handling the grow-out process with style and grace. (You Beautyfix buffs should be familiar with Philip B.’s namesake beauty brand!)
1. Give some different styling products a try—the idea is to improve your hair’s texture and give it some movement. Mess it up. Make it punky! You’ll make your face look more angular and less full. A few good ones to try: Philip B. Maui Wowie Beach Mist, which will provide lift, and Philip B. Jet Set Precision Control Hair Spray, which will give it some hold.
2. Condition, condition, condition. You see, if your hair looks healthy and lustrous, that’s what will command attention. What’s more, this will keep your ends in tip-top shape, which could in turn help you attain long hair again.
3. Give some fun hair accessories a try! If you’ve always wanted to rock a sassy headband or some flirty, sparkly clips, now is the time. Try sweeping your bands to the side and holding them in place with some pretty bobby pins.
And there you have it! Even if you’re not reeling from the effects of a bad haircut, these words of wisdom STILL pose value to every girl trying to make the most of her ‘do.
