Everyone wants to look beautiful and confident, but not everyone is an expert at dyeing hair or doing nails. Sometimes you need that professional touch to feel relaxed and to look your best. However, things don’t always go according to plan. Going to the beauty salon can be a fun experience, or it can be a total nightmare. Unfortunately, some people have had bad experiences at salons that have left them scarred for life. This blog post will share some horror stories from beauty salon customers that will make you never want to go there again!
A Hefty Makeup Look
From Instagram beauty tutorial reels to real-life makeup looks, whether you need subtle daily makeup or a dewy look, nowadays, everyone knows how to achieve a flawless makeup look. However, when it comes to important occasions, no one wants to take a chance on their big day. To achieve that professional look, we hire makeup artists to maintain a professional demeanor!
Hearing about this woman’s horrid experience with a well-known make-up professional on her occasion. She intended to seem naturally attractive but ended up with an overdone makeup appearance. Yes, it appears to be a touch overdone and hefty makeup look.
A 1980s Look
Sometimes after an expensive makeup appointment, clients get this weirdly unattractive, unsatisfied look that no one ever wished for. And it is undoubtedly unfortunate news for those who do not know how to apply makeup. They put so much faith and trust in makeup artists, but nobody really made the necessary effort.
We were reminded of the traditional ladies from the 1980s by her blood-red lips and dreary eyes! She must be the bossy woman who eventually knew how to be carried along with it, as we are certain. But she did not anticipate this.
Eyelash Extension Went Wrong
The items that beauty clinics use should be extremely carefully chosen. They should be knowledgeable about the components of a certain product and should let the customer know if there is a chance that it might have any negative side effects.
Since many customers have allergies to certain substances, the salon must prioritize its customers’ safety. In contrast to this woman, who went for eyelash extensions? Sadly, she experienced a severe allergic reaction due to the false glue and lashes. Nobody truly realized it could impact a girl’s natural eyelashes or even the eye.
Natural Eyelashes Are Gone!
Everyone aspires to have those naturally curled eyelashes. One can obtain long lashes by using mascara or getting lash extensions. The original lashes will likely become stressed and break if they are overly long or thick. Customization is always intended for lash extensions.
Therefore, when it comes to lash extensions, one should be extremely cautious. This young lady had a terrible experience and lost her natural eyelashes. All because her short eyelashes couldn’t sustain it. She then had a variety of distinct procedures to resolve the issue. It seems logical that you wouldn’t want to return to the salon after all that!
From Soft To Dark Hues
Dyeing hair is never without risk! The risk may or may not suit you, but the caliber of the items we use on our hair cannot be compromised. Everyone follows fashion trends, and as you are all aware, soft pastel hair has been popular for a few years. We are all aware that bleaching your hair may cause some little damage, yet you take the risk to get your gorgeous hue.
In contrast to this girl, who desired a light pastel appearance but ended up with dark hues. Her hairstylist used too much color or didn’t match the proper beaching time.
A Deal Ruined It!
Everybody is obsessed with having long, silky, gorgeous hair. This is the purpose of hair extensions. Instead of using several methods to encourage hair growth, just visit a salon to purchase hair extensions. Sometimes you compromise on spending money to obtain what you desire. Discounts may, however, occasionally make you yearn for something.
Similar to this woman, who believed she was prepared for this small deal when a friend volunteered to sew hair extensions in. The broken sewing needle caused the weaves to fail inside her hair. Oh my, what a terrible experience. We bet she will never use the discount.
Three Different Haircuts
We often go for trimming and end up having 5-inch shorter hair than before. And we have discovered one very unappealing example. Have you heard of layer haircuts? Well, lo and behold, this is a three-layer haircut. The hairdresser gave the customer three separate haircuts after taking the concept of three layers much too seriously.
Layers are supposed to merge together. But unfortunately, in this case, it was just the contrary, giving it a piled, blunt appearance. We are very sorry to see this lady in a difficult situation. This has to be the worst haircut we have ever witnessed.
A Wig On Your Big Day!
On your special day, a wig? The worst thing that might happen is to destroy your hair soon before your wedding. After this, we guarantee you can only trust your hairstylist when she suggests a haircut on your wedding day. Just before her wedding, the hairstylist gave her the 1970s hockey hairstyle described in the narrative.
Thank God! After that, someone truly had the courage to step in and correct the hairstyle without payment. In any case, wearing a wig to the wedding is excessive. After all the grief she experienced, we are delighted she didn’t try to sabotage her special day.
Redhead Or Radioactive?
A stylish redhead, perhaps? Yes! Do you know what a radioactive look is, though? Like the three-layer haircut, the hairdresser here had no concept of blended color. This woman anticipated having a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, that was the worst encounter. This woman wanted a light shade of copper red, just like the left image she found online. And she received this monstrosity instead.
Shining with radioactive hair! Her good fortune was that, following this awful radioactive hair color, the hairdresser really made the necessary repairs.
The greatest nightmare somebody could have is improper eyebrows. Think of one of your eyebrows as being thinner than the other. The best tool for shaping eyebrows to prevent this is a pair of tweezers because it’s a far more delicate process than threading or waxing your brows.
This woman used tweezers to sculpt her brows when she sneezed, removing the few sparse hairs and rendering the brows undefined. What a clumsy encounter shared by this Reddit user. Although we are really sad for this woman, we don’t think she will stand having tweezers close to her face for a long time now.
Another horrible hair experience. Looking for the finest way to style your hair in the current trend known as balayage? The technique is applying a lightener to thin hair parts to give them a worn-in, vintage appearance. The most crucial stage is avoiding strong lines and integrating them with a milder tone. Unfortunately, as usual, this woman’s hairstylist should have combined the two tones.
It left her hair with uneven and variegated spots of color. What a disaster! In particular, the highlighted parts have a grayish-brown appearance.
Curly Or Straight?
Making a decision is hard, right? We constantly yearn for what we don’t have. Similar circumstances apply to those who have curly hair and enjoy straightening it. Of course, there are various ways to accomplish this objective. This woman believed she could trust modern hair care methods.
Applied chemicals to her, but they only caused the damage she had anticipated. Sadly, the harsh chemicals severely damaged her hair, making it worse. Resulting in hair loss to an extreme level. We hope she found the solution afterward.
I’m a Wolverine Today
When everyone adopts a concept, it becomes fashionable! Similar to what this girl did. With the introduction of brow lamination, thick eyebrows have once again become fashionable. Chemicals are utilized to change the development of your brow hair, resulting in shiny, combed-up eyebrows. Unfortunately, it calls for a poor encounter.
This woman met with a less-than-skilled technician. Sadly, it appeared that the eyebrows were washed rather than groomed. Despite the salon’s claims, it makes sense why one lady could swear she would never enter one again.
Bleaching For Too Long!
Your hair becomes damaged by bleaching. You did indeed read it correctly. What if the bleaching process took too long? Guess how disastrous it will turn out. Your hair is intended to look fresh and light after bleaching. And this lady wanted the same: a glowing, light, and new look. But because the hair stylists bleached her hair for too long, her hair was damaged pretty much beyond repair.
Additionally, it can cause hair loss. The worst bleaching episode we’ve seen for now, in fact. After all this, she won’t ever take that chance again, we bet.
Styling Hair Is An Art!
When you look at an Instagram picture and see a nice hairdo, you need to have exactly what you just looked at. Heading towards the salon, you expect the stylist to copy the look, a simple task! This lady wanted her homecoming dance occasion to be special with this unique hairstyle, but the hair styling created such a mess!
Sadly, it seems like this stylist has to return to styling school. Fortunately, her mother was there to sort her day out. All we can conclude is that the hairstylist made a serious mistake and should probably take a few more lessons before she is permitted to perform this task once more.
Undercut Gone Wrong
It can be challenging to do an undercut hairstyle. This common task has to be done by an expert. Getting an undercut hairstyle, especially one that looks exactly like the one in the photo, is highly popular among our youth. Similarly, this young lady was getting her first stylish undercut hairstyle. She also brought a photo with her.
And as it turns out, her stylist destroyed her joy by deviating from the precise look she had anticipated. We certainly feel her suffering. Undoubtedly, the design is unkempt.
Waited For Too Long
A spa day is what it calls out after a long tiring day. All you expect is well-professionalized treatment from the salon employees. Indeed, waiting for something really ruins your mood. Well, she gave them a chance to trim her hair only. And as you all can see in the picture. This is what she received after waiting for four hours. A terrible, unbalanced hairstyle. Even the lengthy hair strands are visible in this blunt bob cut that the hairstylist gave her hair.
The weak areas protruded and gave the whole haircut a terrible look. The worst part was that they refused to apologize or give a refund.
Hard Copper Gold Shade!
Similar to balayge, ombre also needs a specialist. Hair coloring has always needed a specialized and qualified individual. It takes great delicacy to arrange hair strands with darker and lighter tones. Another negative experience really led us to conclude that there are better courses of action than seeking out non-specialized individuals for hair treatments.
After spending a fortune, she ended up with a completely reversed version of her hair. Instead of being an ombre, it was just a hard copper-gold color. Sadly, the salon never gave her a refund.
It’s time to think about some unpleasant manicure and pedicure experiences. This woman wanted a relaxing spa day to round off a tough work week. But sadly, things didn’t work out as planned. Because she dug her feet into boiling water, the staff’s neglect caused her to burn her feet physically. That pedicure never even got going.
Sadly, no aid was given as she immediately felt her skin blister and start to peel off. We strongly suspect that it was a terrible, terrible experience.
We truly can’t endure any poor skin experience after hair and nail procedures. There is no room for compromise, especially regarding your face. Well, we must add that these bloggers do take risks because their enthusiasm compels them to. These facials that employ various cutting-edge, purportedly 100% organic beauty products harm your skin. People truly experiment with various facials only for fun or weight loss techniques.
One of them is this woman who spent a month visiting a dermatologist after attempting a random facial she received as a PR. This facial was, therefore, completely unnecessary. We kindly suggest that you carefully review PRs.
Cosmetic Lip Fillers Go Wrong!
With the aid of chemicals and injections, nowadays, we have access to a wide range of new operations, from lip fillers to nose jobs. One well-known serum for plumping up lips and skin is hyaluronic acid; use it under the guidance of a skilled dermatologist and their close monitoring. However, this lady visited a salon and seemed to have gotten far more than she bargained for.
We really hope that by educating you about these cosmetic treatments, you should visit a dermatologist. Otherwise, you will face the same circumstances.
Diamond To Planer Lines!
AHH! It seems a little uncomfortable, at least. Once more, a terrible undercut hairstyle. This woman had an extremely awful, inconsistently styled underdo haircut in place of this original, innovative diamond hairdo. As was previously noted, this hairstyle demands barbers that are really excellent artists.
Yes, it is a challenging job. And needless to say, this barber had his own style. He didn’t even adhere to the fundamental framework and outline. A gorgeous diamond to the planer lines. Please see a skilled hairdresser if you are considering getting an undercut hairstyle.
Friendship Gets Costly!
Everybody tries to be distinct and special while they are in high school. Particularly when you are attending a liberal arts college, instead of following trends, you make one! Similarly to that, a woman on Reddit told her story about wanting to dye her hair a particularly attractive bright greenish-blue color for her friend’s beauty school.
Yes, it looked something like this. Of course, we should all encourage and support our friends. But this is really an example of best friends. We hope their bond endured long after this. However, we genuinely question her bravery in allowing her friend to experiment on her.
Many nail salons have a significant number of manicurists that know multiple languages. Some salons hire people with similar backgrounds, which may result in personnel speaking in their native language. Consider giving instructions and having a misinterpretation that results in destruction. Or let’s look at this narrative in which the nail artist stated something inappropriate in another language, which the client understood.
When such circumstances occur and involve clients, nail artists should be extremely cautious. After all, you don’t know who speaks which language, and you might annoy a customer. As a result, they may never return, as this woman did.
One Eyebrow Only!
This is quite ominous! We honestly can’t fathom going through a little period of time with just one eyebrow. Everyone often visits the same salon and the same girl for their brows. Well, this woman had the guts to wax her eyebrows at a new salon and test it out.
She, unfortunately, had to go through a really heartbreaking ordeal. Yes, one brow has vanished. Still grateful for one eyebrow, but holy Molly, I don’t envy her. She had never anticipated leaving the salon with just one eyebrow. Our hearts go out to this woman.
No Natural Highlights!
What do we know about highlights? Highlighting our hair strands while it’s nicely blended with our original hair color. Always what a teenager first tried on her hair after struggling with convincing her mom. This girl did the same, she convinced her mom to get highlights on her birthday. And sadly, it ruined her birthday.
The hairstylist used the wrong color on her hair and didn’t even bother to blend it to look natural. First experience yet the last experience for her. This has most likely left her with a lifelong aversion to beauty salons.
Say No To Hot Wax Eyebrows!
Another attempt to wax eyebrows. Nobody ever considered how they may be impacted by what everyone has experienced. This woman had burned her skin while attempting to achieve a naturally bushy brow. Like others, she tried hot wax, but the wax was too hot to apply before pulling the hair out, which led to this horrific white blister.
Therefore, use caution the next time you have hot wax brows. Look at how this girl will live her entire life with this burn mark on her eye.
An Amateur Styled Look!
It appears like an amateur with zero experience styled her hair instead of a hair professional. This woman considered getting this gorgeous hairstyle from a reputable salon for her wedding day. She also brought a picture of a lovely hairstyle she wants; the result leaves much to be desired.
The hairdresser didn’t match the depicted hairdo at all. That does really bring to mind the video reel “what I ordered vs. what I received.” It certainly destroyed her big day. After reading this, we are sure nobody will ever consider going to this salon on their special day.
Compromise At The Expense Of Customers!
Some salons fail to deliver on their promises to customers. They, like other businesses, make more money. Unfortunately, they profit at the products’ expense, putting the client’s hair or skin in danger.
This woman described how the so-called professional hairdresser secured the false lock with synthetic hair extensions and injected an adhesive bead. They wouldn’t let her see the magic they were working on the back. This hairdresser made the woman’s hair look terrible to save a few bucks.
Bangs, The Risky One!
Ahh, bangs!! Bangs are a risk, as it only suits certain face shapes. And yes, there is no coming back. So, bangs should always be executed in a right yet perfect manner. God forbid, if they were wrong, you better know what you’ll look like.
This person thought she would look great with bangs, but guess what, her hairstylist didn’t do a great job. She ended up having an uneven patchy line and gaps in front of her haircut, giving that spicy hair look. This is a huge problem, we must say.
Practice Made It Worse!
Ouch, this hurts! As the incident narrates, beauty schools usually experience such incidents while experimenting. Of course, it’s nerve-racking, but it’s all part of the learning process. The same thing happened here, and we must admit that it was more severe. Every beautician, even when practicing, should be cautious.
Because bleach got into her eye, the individual developed an infection. Yes, it was painful, and it left a scar on her eye. We hope salons care about these things, but one negative experience will put anyone off going to the salon.
Sometimes Mum Can Be Wrong!
The most amusing aspect of this terrible tale may be mom experimenting. In this story, a boy visits a salon to get her mother’s incorrect hairstyle rectified. Yes, her mother gave him a trim haircut since she thought that was all he required. You may occasionally need to go to the salon to get it fixed.
The mother of this little child ran a salon, but she wasn’t skilled enough to cut his hair. What an untidy haircut, we must say. But again, moms can be the wrong ones sometimes.
A Trendy Inspiration Went Wrong
Sometimes following trends turns your life into a disaster. Not just women experience trauma after leaving the salon. Men occasionally have awful haircut disasters as well. Just like this man who experienced some pretty tragic haircut. As usual, he took a trendy inspirational picture with him, but the picture on the right shows what he got instead.
The barber knew how to make fun of it and really ruined it. And how funny it is that both hairstyles aren’t even matchable. We hope his hair was back to its original look.
Ahh, A Mullet!
Once again, bleaching goes wrong! The procedure as a whole failed due to amateur execution. Resulting in a really awful hairstyle. We really do mean that we are utterly astounded by how incapable and unprofessional these hairdressers were. The attendees just passed after acting like everything was ready.
Her mullet-like image is caused by how her hair fell in front of her eyes. Ahh!! We truly have no idea what she must have thought of herself when she glanced in the mirror.
A Backwards Samurai
This is why sometimes it is right to say, “Do Not Try This At Home”. The cut swiftly changed from a trim to a shave, leaving this guy’s head bare, all because he neglected to attach the clipper guard with the shaver. What a bad day it must have been for him.
If he tried similar things at home again, we bet he won’t make a similar mistake. The next time he cuts hair, he’ll repeatedly check, maybe even multiple times!
‘I Want To Talk To Your Manager!’
Hair appearance is quite important when it comes to changing the cut from a youngster to an adult. Sometimes hairstylists would provide this kind of hairstyle without being asked. The same happened with this lady, whose haircut gave her a more mature appearance.
After displaying many images of her desired haircut, she got a completely different look. It bothered her that she was being made to feel older. The woman was, therefore, dissatisfied with the fact that she had spent so much money on this.
Did We Just Say Perms?
There was a period when perms were fashionable. Everyone was having perms, whether in real life or the movies. By upright curling, perming gives your hair some additional volume. This young lady also wanted to get those lovely perms done.
Instead, she ended up with tightly curled hair, which left her speechless. She had no idea it would appear that tight. Everyone has the option to style their curls in any way they like, and in our opinion, hair stylists should respect this decision and take care to fulfill it.
Opposite What They Thought Of!
Some individuals visit a salon in order to get the desired appearance and have complete confidence in the stylist. We believe it to be an error. To prevent any misunderstandings that can cause harm, you should supervise the entire process yourself.
In this instance, the client trusted the stylist to handle the trim. And it was challenging to identify the gender given the final output. The hairdresser drastically overcut the hair. Sadly, the client ended up having this androgynous appearance. Even though we think they look absolutely perfect, we are sure the individual can’t wait for them to grow back
Sometimes, We Should Call It Out!
We never knew that putting your hand in someone else hands could be this disastrous! It seems difficult to call out so-called trained professionals when your hands are in their hands. They want you to trust them, well, sometimes, it isn’t enough.
As shared by this woman, not speaking up can lead you to face some unpleasant, painful consequences. This poor woman’s nails were practically worded down to her skin, which seemed extremely painful. The salon employee ruined her nails! We are sure that she will never bother to entrust someone this much.
Disinfect Your Tools!!!
The most significant feature of a salon should be hygiene. A salon definitely can’t utilize its tools repeatedly on various consumers. They should make sure that their equipment is adequately sterilized to prevent future incidents like the one this woman had. She developed a severe nail infection solely due to the salon’s failure to properly sanitize the instruments.
Before getting these quick manicures and pedicures at salons, we believe it is time to give it some serious thought. After all, you have your nails done, so they look decent, and this definitely does not.
Broken Nail Is Always Painful
Have you ever felt anguish when a toenail breaks because you slammed your foot against a door? If so, you know how it feels to break a nail. And it certainly appears to be painful. This woman chose to get false acrylic nails but saw the harm that was caused.
She ended up breaking her nails while trying to get them removed. When removing it, monitoring is necessary, regardless of whether the nail is acrylic or gel. Who would have thought she would lose her gorgeous nails? If this carelessness had caused our nails to bleed, we swear we would have lost our minds.
Say No To Gel Nail Polish!
Have your nails ever turned yellow after wearing nail polish for a couple of days? Similar circumstances apply to gel nail paint; it looks great and lasts for a very long period of time, but it may also kill your nails. Such things happened to the unfortunate woman. Look how her nails were torn off by the gel nail paint, leaving her hands completely pitiful.
Before asking customers to perform such ridiculous activities, salons should make sure to provide them with clear guidelines. Healthy nails may be affected, appearing ugly and damaged.
A Fun Fact About Nail Polish!
Another worse example of gel polish. We will probably never choose gel nail paint again. This woman described how gel nail paint left her nails incredibly thin and caused them to peel. Not only had this, but even subsequent manicures and pedicures had a significant impact on her nails. We would also be curious as to what was going on after noticing her nails flaking and falling out.
Her doctor immediately told her of the root of the problem, and she abruptly stopped getting manicures and pedicures. Seems like she acted in a very clever way!
Fungus might be caused by not utilizing clean, disinfected instruments. Taking care of your hands and nails is important because there is always a chance of getting into this frequently. This woman revealed her heartbreaking story of contracting an illness at one salon and curing it at another.
And it was the last time she had her nails done. She was presumably quite happy to have gotten rid of the fungus and be worry-free about obtaining any more.
A soothing pedicure improves your mood significantly. That, however, largely relies on the spa and the pedicurist. God forbid, you may wind up feeling like this individual if you land yourself in the hands of an inexperienced specialist. We can imagine the suffering she goes through each time she sees the result.
Well aware of the discomfort, we are confident that just remembering it will be a good enough reason never again to undergo this kind of pedicure at this salon.
Money Doesn’t Matter!
When you combine it with a negative experience, it almost always results in someone pledging never to return. Like all the unpleasant experiences, this woman didn’t think of spending much money to get a fungal infection.
That is what happened to this woman, who, after her previous salon appointment, was struggling with fungus. We don’t think it’s enjoyable to spend money and end up with a fungus, either.
