Yesterday, we asked you about bringing in photos to your hairstylist to get the perfect cut. Today, we’re looking at what happens when you don’t get what you want. A telephone poll conducted by ShopSmart shows that a bad hair day can put 44 percent of women in a crappy mood and that 26 percent of us ladies cry in response to a bad haircut. This is news? Frankly, we’re surprised these numbers aren’t higher. How can having a bad hair day not make you upset?

At least there’s some happier data to reflect on—only 4 percent of the polled group “hated” their hair while 41 percent said they “liked it.” What’s the worst that’s happened to you after a horrific haircut or a bad hair day? [USA Today]
