Hair Cut Shame
I have been really good about staying at home during COVID. I have all of my groceries delivered, and haven’t gotten together with friends for months. My only real outings are to take walks every morning down by the beach, being sure to wear a mask and keep a safe distance from others. I have not been out to eat or to a hair salon for months.
A few days ago, I decided to cut my own hair because it was getting long and was in my face all the time. I watched several YouTube videos and followed along as best I could. It turned out terrible! As soon as I saw the result, I tried to fix it by cutting some more. It didn’t work. I am so embarrassed, I can’t even go for my walks anymore.
My regular hair stylist offered to sneak me into her salon one evening and repair the damage. I felt guilty, but agreed. Now she says she is too nervous to break the rules, so she can’t keep the appointment.
What should I do?

First of all, you should definitely not miss your walks. Wear a hat.
Secondly, while YouTube videos are invaluable for easy stuff like dry walling, plumbing, or building a semiconductor nuclear radiation detector, they are absolutely no place to go for a hair cutting tutorial. Consider this a lesson.
Also, remember that it’s just hair and it will grow out.
