SOS! Five Hair Emergencies And How To Fix Them
Some ‘dos can’t be undone — but for everything else, there’s a fix.
I’m not sure I can count all my hair emergencies on just two hands.
There have been too-short bangs I cut myself. There was the time my color came out orange after an ill-conceived dyeing session at home; the roots were a sort of rotting-pumpkin shade, and the ends were thoroughly destroyed. For that one, I had to see an actual stylist in an actual salon because it’s true that there are some hair problems that can only be solved by a professional or by waiting it out. But barring these types of, um, dead-end situations, you’re in luck. For most hair emergencies, there’s a fix.
