Crying....

my eyes out....Venti just came over to get his "wedding" haircut....he only wanted a "trim"...when I was cutting around his right ear..I cut it too short!  I instantly got sick to my stomach...I tried to fix it but it was way too short.  I had to cut all of it way shorter then he wanted and yet you could still see where I goofed up.   You can see his scalp above his ear....I don't know what to do...I feel so badly.  I have been crying for an hour.....I have never goofed a haircut before until today....and I mess up my son's hair....and he's getting married in a day....

  1. Love your heart. I thought you were going to say that the wedding was off...so this problem isn't nearly as bad!!! In a year from now, you all will laugh about this...and since there's not a thing you can do about it...go ahead and laugh now!!! Don't let this disrupt such a happy occasion!!!

  2. Oh, Java, I think it is the stress getting to you. I am so sorry. I wish I could hug you.

  4. First off, take a deep breath. You have been under so much stress lately with the wedding, Debbie Scissorhands, the dress problem. What seems like a catastrophe right now will be a moment to remember years from now. My daughter lost the grooms ring 2 days before the ceremony. It was awful. Long story short, hysterics were involved, but 12 beautiful years later they laugh about it.

    There is nothing you can do about it now, so just remember the whole purpose of this is for him to be united with the one he loves. Don't let the haircut ruin a beautiful day for you and your son.

  5. I feel so bad for you. I don't even know what to say, except that I care and felt sick with you when I read this.

  6. Oh Java....big [[[hugs]]]]. I'm sure that no one will notice anything other than that his hair looks neat and tidy. Pick yourself up and don't let this one little incident take away any of your joy over the next few days.

  7. Oh Java, it will be okay. I know it seems like a disaster, but it won't really be as bad as it seems. Someday it will be one of the things that you remember fondly about the day. Time has a way of making things softer and gentler.

  8. Java: Come on. He's getting married in a day. He is focused on his bride, not his hair.

  9. Awww, it happens! And it is over and done with now and there is nothing you can do about it except make peace with it in your heart. That is all you can do. Try and breathe! And maybe give the kid some rogaine! lol Or a litte brown eyeshadow for that part of his head! lol It's already done, so try and make the best of it and remember that THAT is not what matters. Hair is not important. What is important is the joining and committment of two lives and that is what everyone should be focused on!

  10. Oh boy my heart goes out to you but I am sure he will forgive you - and the ear probably won't show up in the wedding pictures!
    Take a deep breath - if that is the worst that happens it'll be ok!

  11. shhh...don't you worry... it is the wedding "trademark" - it happened because he had to look different that day, and you made it possible!!! he is going to be the happiest guy on earth that day, so why do you feel bad about a stupid haircut??? for the next 60 years they are going to be talking about how his mom made his statement... right on his head!! ain't that special??? xxoo

  14. Bless your heart. I would be sick to my stomach about it too, but "sh-t happens" they say...and it does!

    I'll be praying for you this weekend. Can't wait to see photos.

    Hugs,
    Kat

  15. OK, just take a deep breath and let all of us wrap a big ((((((HUG)))))) around you. I have six children who had beautiful weddings and believe me, each one had small issues that seemed, at the time, like big stressors. By next week, when all has calmed down, you will be able to look back at this time and laugh at all the little stressors and focus on the love of your two children.
    This is the beginning of new memories for the Bride and Groom and one day Venti will tell his children the story about his wedding haircut! My children tell many stories about me to their children and I LOVE IT!

  16. I feel so sad for you, but I do know that incidents like this are what we all laugh about in the future. I’m sure the wedding will be absolutely beautiful. It’s the look on the groom’s face when he sees his bride walk down the aisle that I remember the most. Lots of love and (((hugs))).

  17. Oh you poor baby, I am so sorry! But as the others have said, step back & keep your perspective. He will truly not care on the wedding day!

    My son & his bride could not keep the silly grins off their faces all day! After the ceremony we were taking some pics near the platform that they said their vows on & my son was admiring the archway & flowers as if he had never seen them!

    Bless your heart, it's going to be fine.....he may never let you cut his hair again! but now it will be his wife's job anyway! :) Thinking of you and hope you can enjoy the day you have worked so hard for!

  18. Yikes! Don't fret much about it, it's an accident. Is there any ways you could perhaps salvage the situation? Use an eyebrow liner to color in or something?

  19. Girlfriend, what is wrong with you! Now wipe those tears, and put on a big smile because you should get out those buzzers, and shave him by his ears on both sides because that's in fashion. You did him a big favor! He's gonna look so cool! You don't have to shave it all the way up like the kids do, but half way or 1/3, and it will look great! Now if you're too nervous to do it, just tell him to go to someone you trust. Everything will be just fine! SMILE!

  20. Oh bless your heart Java! I feel for you, but I too believe that in the long run this is going to be one of those stories you will laugh about and probably blush about in years to come.

  21. Java, I am sorry this had to happen to you. Stress is awful. I wish you didn't have to go through this too. I am a licensed hairdresser and oh how I hated doing the groom or brides hair...S.T.R.E.S.S. One of the many reasons I no longer do hair for a living! ;)
    Take care my friend...all will be well and the wedding will be beautiful!!!
    hugs,

  22. I cut hubby's hair too Java. On occasion, I 'whitewall' around his ears. Hair grows back and it's a guy, they don't put as much onus on it as well do.
    Relax, he's marrying the woman who has his heart, I'm sure the hair around his ears are the last thing on his mind :-)

  23. Java, I did the exact same thing to my husband once when I was cutting his hair. We immediately went to a professional, and I couldn't believe it, but she was able to make it look good. I would suggest you get him to a professional right away.

  24. Oh no! It's probably just nerves! Hope you got everything fixed.

    Hope you have a great time at the wedding. Congrats!!!

  25. I could say no one will notice, I could say it'll grow back, I could say lots of stuff but you feel terrible and all I can say is tomorrow is a great day, just face it all with a smile, look at the spot and love it all that much more. I can't wait to hear about it all, see the pictures and see you in all your glory. It'll be a day to remember for a life time plus!
    Take care Java and try to relax. God Bless you all.

  26. It's odd that I am reading this post now....as I am getting ready to go with my daughter to get my grandson's haircut (he's 4). She wants me to go because she said that I will stop the girl before she screws it up. Now if she does I will remember that it will be ok and it will grow back. I am sure your son will look great on his wedding day and like others have said it will be something to talk about!! Hugs to you!!

  27. Don't they say there's no point in crying over cut hair or something like that? Seriously though, in the overall scheme of things, no biggie. I understand your unhappiness about it but if that's the worst that happens this weekend, it's small. He'll look great and the weekend will be great and it'll all be great, regardless if his hair is a bit shorter than intended.
