You know those times in between haircuts, when you realize that you could use a little cleanup — but not a full-on haircut? You end up just letting it ride out until your next appointment comes around, cursing yourself for not taking up your stylist's offer for that midappointment complimentary bang trim.
I've got you covered on an appropriate compensation for the free service and a how-to for cutting them yourself. But in case you're able to make that midcut trip, consider actually booking your refresher trim before you leave the salon, treating it like a regular appointment, not just a "we'll see."
No more cramming to get in at the last minute, and fewer awkward hair days. One more thing? Although she gave the OK on emailing, my message, entitled "Bang Trim," got caught up in my stylist's spam filter. My guess is that the software wasn't liking the bang part. Oh, homonyms.
