Hair salon @ Walmart - Definitely a Bad Experience

VERO BEACH, FLORIDA -- I went in with hair half way down my back, asked for long layers and for it to be shaped up. I told her I can't stand hair on my face, wanted to keep the length and be able to pull it back or up if I wanted.

I told the girl she was cutting it wrong, (it looked like she had been cutting with pinking shears). I ended up with straggles of what hair remained long and the top looked like a bowl had been put over it. I told her even a razor cut shag would have been better and was not sure what I could do to get it straightened out. Needless to say, I DID NOT PAY, ( oh and she wanted to take a picture of it - after the fact) went to a salon I had frequented before, and now have hair that does not even reach my shoulders and of course bangs. If anyone has gone from extremely short to long, you know I have a growing out cut.

My 4 year old granddaughter has been known to get hold of the the scissors and cut her own hair. Believe me it looks better than the cut I got from a so called professional.

We expect that if they hold a license, they should be able to handle a simple cut and we should not get a butch job! Let me also say, I was the first in the salon that morning and had also talked to the girl on a previous occasion about what I wanted and was expecting.

It's a Walmart. What did you expect? Better service than a independent salon?

Two things I don't get at Walmart: haircuts and oil changes. I swear the majority of the people who work there seem to have graduated from their respective training programs by the skin of their teeth.

I got 3 haircuts from Walmart a few years ago because it was the only salon near me at the time. I went in 3 times, asked for the same haircut, got 3 different results and 3 different prices We were wintering in Florida. Couldn't wait to get home to my own girl.

I had a friend of mine go to Walmart to trim his hair up. He has very short hair and just asked for the sides buzzed and a little bit off the top...the girl did such a horrible job he refused to pay and had to go home and just buzz his entire head himself. I've also heard other horror stories from the hair stylists at Walmart and you couldn't pay me to get my hair cut there.
