15 People Who Have PTSD After Visiting the Beauty Salon

year ago

The global salon services market is valued at over $201 billion according to 2021’s statistics. This means that it’s a business where millions of people are working in servicing billions of people. It’s only natural that not everyone has the necessary knowledge or talent and mistakes are being made. Unfortunately, these mistakes cost people not only money but also their healthy state of mind.

1. “No wonder the hairdresser didn’t show me what it looked like from the back.”

2. “Are acrylics supposed to be this bent out? Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like these are really angled.”

3. “When you ask for a line but the barber gives you an entire highway.”

4. “Wanted a simple manicure for my wedding. The right photo is what I got. I was upset but also couldn’t stop laughing.”

5. “Got the worst shellac manicure of my life, and my nails and cuticles ruined.”

6. “I showed my hairdresser the photo and said I only wanted a pattern if she could manage it, and she said she’d go for it, then it came out like this.”

7. “I got my eyebrows microbladed 5 weeks ago, and these are now fully healed. I hate them so much.”

8. “Moment of silence for the worst acrylic set of my life... usual lady was sick and was going on holiday that eve. Could fit a BUS through the gap between my nail/tips!”

9. “I got lash extensions for the first time. It’s only been 2 days having them and there are already noticeable gaps.”

10. “What I wanted vs what I got.”

11. “Decided to treat myself and go to a nail shop around the corner. I showed the nail tech a picture of a set I did so that she could see how I wanted my nails... Well, here’s what I got after failed attempts of explaining.”

12. “My best friend got this makeup done today.”

13. “These are horrible, but it’s my first polygel set.”

14. “What I asked for vs what I got for $200.”

15. “Close enough.”
