Nobody wants a bad hair day, let alone a bad hair cut! Since we’ve all been there (even superdiva Pink recently showed up on the red carpet with a questionable crop — then blamed her hairdresser via Twitter), we decided to help make sure you never end up with a hair don’t again. (Listen up, Pink!)

Be vocal. It's easier to change direction earlier in the cut than once she's finished snipping.

Tell the truth about your getting ready routine. Whether you always air dry your locks, hate using product, or are willing to spend hours styling and straightening, let the hair dresser know. This way they can create a cut that will actually work with your lifestyle and look great when you do it yourself instead of only looking good when you first leave the salon!
