Cameron Diaz is now ‘okay’ with her hair
The cut in question was one she received at the end of last year. She explained the misunderstanding on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. “I said, ‘Oh I just want a little bit off’ … and it went from here to here,” she told Leno, using her hands to show the two extremely different lengths.
She admitted she immediately began bawling after seeing the change, saying, “I just burst into tears and started crying, and I felt so vulnerable. For a woman to all of a sudden have no hair, oh my god.”
Diaz said what made the whole situation worse was that her hair stylist was her good friend. She said, “I felt really bad, she felt really bad, she started crying, I started crying, a couple of other people started crying.”
The actress said it didn’t take long for her to get over it, saying, “I ended up writing her a few emails after, the next couple days, assuring her I wasn’t going to kill her.”
I think most women (and probably men?) have gotten a bad haircut at one time or another, and at the time, it does suck, but it always grows back. One of my best friends does (well did until I moved 400 miles away) my hair and I wouldn’t have it any other way if I had a choice. A hair stylist you’ve had for a long time, especially a friend, just knows you, your hair, and your style. It’s hard to teach somebody new those things quickly.
