18 People That Changed Their Hairstyles, and Got Incredibly Happy or Terribly Disappointed

Going to a beauty salon is bound to brighten your mood. Some people love their new cuts and hairstyles, but some get a hairdresser that doesn’t even try to do a good job. And for some people, new hair colors or totally new hair shapes mark the beginning of a new life.

18. “Allowed a beauty school student to ‘take just 2 inches, please’ in September. After many months and a cut to even it out, it’s finally almost back to the length it was.”
