We’ve all been there before. The hairdresser spends three hours on your hair and when the foils are finally removed… You hate it. The first thought is usually denial. It’s still wet so probably won’t always look like this right? Wrong! Suddenly it’s all blow-dried and you’re faced with that dreaded question, “what do you think?”, “Oh, I loooove it!” you respond with your best fake smile, only to go home and cry yourself to sleep. So what’s a girl to do when it’s too awkward to return to the lovely lady who has put all her heart and soul into your locks? You go to one of Sydney’s best hairdressers, STAT!
