Can anyone recommend a decent hairdresser, i have just had my hair cut (I won't say where), I asked for "a bob without layers, all one length, but graduated". What I got was what can only be described as a layered, short back and sides! And now because of all the layers it sticks out in all directions and looks nothing like a bob.
Did I ask for the wrong thing, is there a special name for this style up here?

Please help, I think I might have to change my name to Skinhead until it grows out!

Frances at Janettes in Cowie Lane, Thurso is an excellent hairdresser. She listens to what you want and does just that!

She also does mobile hairdressing.

Thanks for that Poppett, I'm gonna have to let this grow out first but I will bear that in mind. I am actually nearer Wick than Thurso but that doesn't matter. Cheers!

I HATE when that happens, its so annoying. It like that if you ask for a certain colour, they do something totally different.

I go to Headlines in Union St Wick, never had a problem. You get what you ask for.

I go to harbour hi lights and lynne does such a great job of my hair and always has, Ive been going there for about a year now, before that i had several hairdressers to see which one i liked and they all seemed to cut my hair short and not what i wanted. Lynne has spent time and patience with my hair and my hair is lovely now and people actually comment on it now. I would certainly recommend her and she is even great with my daughter, my daughter is 5 and wont let anyone else cut her hair.

Thanks to everyone for your comments, it would appear Headlines and Harbour Hi-Lights are the two most popular. I will say I didn't go to either of them but will definitely try them now.
Cheers All x

I think Amanda Steven at Blow Your Top in Thurso is really great, and she can really work a bob in my opinion.

Also, it may help if you can take a pic with you of what you want. I did that last time I went for a change of do, and I was thrilled with the results:D!

The best hairdresser's in Wick is Curl up n' Dye (used to be Streaks Ahead) they are absolutely fantastic. I have tried some of the best hairdresser's when I lived in Yorkshire and can honestly say that Curl up n' Dye are the best I have been to.
