Four weeks ago, I went to Mitzi's Salon to get my hair colored, some highlights and a trim. I left with about 1/4 less hair. Over the next week I continued to lose even more hair. Maybe I should begin at the beginning.
For two years I have been going to another Salon, the person who did my hair has moved out of state. I decided to go to Mitzi. I jokingly felt good about being able to afford her services. If you've been to Bishops and have sat in Mitzi's chair, you know it's a bit disconcerting that she looks at herself more than she looks at her hair. The last two times I have been in the Salon, there has been massive turmoil with Stylists crying and her taking time away from her client to go talk to someone not doing a good enough job. I would tell you to be prepared to wait an eternity as well. Four hours for my grey to be covered, some highlights and a trim. Not one time, every time...but I want to save you from that.
I am not quite sure exactly what happened and she has texted me two different explanations. Here's what I've been able to piece together. She put three times the normal amount of foil, applied bleach all the way down the hair and sat me under the dryer. She admits about 7 minutes too long.
I had hair breaking off when she went to cut it. When I said, What is this?! Why is my hair falling out?! She proceeded to tell me it wasn;t, that I just needed some Damage Remedy (a product) Um....I don't have damaged hair...The first time I came, I wondered why my hair seemed so dry. This second time, It's amazing I left with any hair. The front and sides of my hair are fried. I have three large ""holes"" in the top of my head where that hair just fell out completely.
I know it may sound a bit shallow, but I have truly been devastated. I feel ugly. I look terrible. I cannot believe the answer to my hair for the next six months is cool hair, no heat, hats and time. How do you think that feels for someone to take that from you?
She was kind enough to send me a refund. However, there is not a price tag for what she took from me. I have spent $150 on protein packs, I'm wearing hats, I paid someone to style it for a work event and today I had three inches cut off and was consoled by a Professional hair stylist that it would just take time.
This woman does not ever need to have her hands in another person's hair. RUN! I am not kidding! I will post pictures so you can see my before and afters.
