  •   amby250 Dyed my hair black. I'm a blonde. Looked like crap and was pretty costly to get out. Learned a good lesson that day. 5d
  •   dupesagirlsbf bleached hair after dying in black multiple times, lost about 6-8 inches of hair from it dropping off #worsthairever 5d
  •   sydness99 I had the Rachel... Man that was surgery just 2 do something simple like blow drying it!!! #yikes 5d
  •   bree8199 @emilywrecker I like!! 5d
  •   lucinda212 Tried my hand at straightening my hair with chemicals. It was so harsh on my scalp that it had burnt a huge scab on my scalp, I tried to tell the hairdressers that it was burning at the time but they said its supposed to. When I went to my regular hair dresser she was absolutely shocked cause I had a huge sore on my head plus it was falling out in chunks. I had to cut my hair all off until it literally looked like a mushroom hair cut. Worst time of my life with my hair like that. 5d
  •   huda_20j Just 3 days before eid, my hairdresser cut my front bangs 1.5cm above my eyebrows. That was the.last time had bangs done! :/ 5d
  •   shelbs_victoria Highlights overcooked and subsequently fell out. Oh and once I got a haircut with only 2 (uneven) layers: one at my chin and one at my boobs.. 5d

  •   amyflady summer of 2009 my hair was so brittle just running my fingers through it was like cutting a handful off at a time.. 1w
  •   mama_demps I was 18 and for my bday my mom convinced me to have a PERM. I agreed to shoulder length waves. The salon cut 6 inches and hair was so curly , like an afro! I had to blow dry and use large curling iron every day for 6 months to get it to not be a poodle. 1w
  •   somicheon my mom cut my hair like Reba McIntyre's circa 1998. I was 9 and right in the middle of the most awkward period of my physical existence to date. Ever since then I have never had short hair. 1w
  •   jbadenh Khaki highlights - by mistake! An attempt to go from brunette to blonde, but a case of 'do not pass green'. Not good! My boyfriend at the time commented that my hair matched my trench coat. I think I had to cut it out! :( 1w
  •   lexiealexia I was 17 and I wanted my hair highlighted so bad that I ask for a hair saloon gift certificate as my birthday gift. The girl in the saloon was kind of new so I had to describe to her with all details what I want exactly, but she managed to mess up my hair in another way. I let her do her thing and bam, by the end of the day I had white strains all over my hair, the girl use such a strong bleacher that the hair color for the highlight effect didn't stay so I just looked like an OLD LADY! Sadly for me, I was going to a party that night, and my friends decided it was funny to call me the wicked witch of oz the entire night. I had to out grow that color because I just had a perm so I couldn't color it again in a while (luckily my hair grows pretty fast) 😬 1w
  •   jenn_0801 A little over a year ago I got a pixie cut.. It was actually kinda cute, but then I grew it out. With curly hair, the time between a pixie cut and a bob is really really terrible. Now it's longer and I'm happy :) oh and back when I was 10 I started getting perms on my shoulder length hair to make it less frizzy but I had to use a mousse to make it look "okay" I had crunchy terrible hair for 2 years and didn't see the problem with it. 1w
  •   lauraprangley I was growing my hair out for locks of love. I went to a random salon to get a simple trim to keep it healthy and the lady gave me a mullet. 1w
  •   jessicamary513 I have finer thinner hair and am ever on the search for THE product. I came across a hair mask that promised to increase strength. I ran home and slathered my head with this stuff. I quickly realized that it was a bad idea. 10 washes later- I went to work the next am only because I already had a full schedule of patients. Around lunch time my colleague said to me, "your hair is still wet". No it wasn't. It remained plastered to my scalp for a couple of days... 1w

  •   bigrrrrrrred This magazine has featured Salma Hayek, Zoe Saldana, Eve, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Eva Mendes, Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Vanessa Hudgens, Nicki Minaj, Penelope Cruz, etc etc, and in all the years I've read allure they haven't failed to include skin hair or makeup advice for as many skin types and colours as they could fit into each article about it. I've seen them steadily and rapidly evolve into a magazine that includes all ages, race, and sizes into their imagery, and their monthly editorial content regularly includes an article told from the point of view of the writer, exposing some personal beauty story usually revolving around the authors feeling of not fitting in. I understand the need fore this diversity in popular media, but instead of feeling like you've done your part and spoken up after a knee jerk reaction to a quick snapshot of a collage on a social media site, perhaps flip open your web browser and do the most basic of searches on the magazine BEFORE you decide to take then to task in the most ineffective way possible. 2w

  •   goldiegirl44 @crissy9112 @bigrrrrrrred thank you both for your opinions. We all come with a past I know what mine brings forward and I choose to not color code people @crissy9112 I can't even begin to imagine how hard your life is I only know how mine was at different times being hated for the color of my skin. But even with my baggage that I could bring to the table I choose not too. @bigrrrrrrred it's wonderful that you were able to bring your extensive knowledge here to this forum. 2w
