Well yesterday I went to the salon, and I told the woman I wanted a short, Velma Kelly bob. I've had this hair cut before and LOVED it. At the time my hair was a shaggy mess as i was letting my mohawk grow out. well the dirty little uh... bunt cake she was messed up my hair so bad i went home and cried. I look like a little boy with a reverse mullet. Soooo I did the only think I could think of... make some hats. And while i did I made a Tute for all of you who may suffer the same problem. (DO NOT got to a TGF or REGIS Salon, it was the master stylist/manager that jacked up my hair!)

So the whole tutorial with pictures and measurement is on my blog here: http://plaid-boots.livejournal.com/7877.html
Cuze yeah its was ALOT of pictures. Try it out!

The hat on the left is obviously a store bought hat, it was just a comparison.

What do you think? Dosen't really cover my hair enough for my tastes. Anyone go any other tute for better sewn hats to cover this awful do of mine.

Ugh! I am so lucky that my sister is my hairdresser! (If you need a new one and are in the Orange County area of CA Ican refer you;) )

At least you did a great job on your hats! You might want to look into some of the 20's or 40's style hats. And one thing you need to keep in mind "it's only hair and it will grow back!"

Sorry about the butchering of your hair. Thanks for the tut though I've been learning to make hats

Creating something from nothing is the most theraputic thing in this world for my soul.

Omigosh, I totally feel your pain about dodgy hairdressers. Sad The amount of time I've asked for something well cool...they go and eff it up. Sad( Which is why I always bring a hat with me. Wink

Now, with your tute, I can have hats for different occassions and moods. Smiley P.S. The Hello Kitty one is amazing!!! Cheesy -x-

That's all there is and there ain't no more....

Loved your blog tute, clear instructions and great pictures. Cut up a pair of pants, great reuse/repurpose, and Hello Kitty is my personal favorite.

Although the cut seems a bit uneven, your hair color is wonderful and your complexion is fabulous. Maybe you can flip the ends under with a curling iron until it grows out.

I can understand your frustration with the salon experience. I have not had a decent cut since my hairdresser retired last yr. The style you chose is classic, timeless, and one of the first cuts we taught in school (Barber College, 1978... instructor, 1988... retired, 1998). You'd imagine something that basic would be second nature, especially to an instructor, ... straight lines.

My Granny called it a "Buster Brown", and she wore that cut in the 1920s as a child. And all the ladies went to the barber shop to get their hair cut. When I was in high school, we called it a Page Boy.

D'oh! I am terribly sorry about your hair - I know exactly what you're going through! I, too, am growing out yet *another* heinous cut. You are gorgeous and all of your fabulous new hats are awesome! Great job! Smiley

Thanks for the hat inspiration!  Sorry about your hair.

 I'm working on a pattern for a hat to go with another 1910s-inspired outfit.  The 1910s was a period of the greatest diversity of hats, I think, from the enormous "cartwheel" hats of the late Edwardians to smaller hats  similar to the cloches of the 1920s,and including turbans and tiny "fascinator" type hats.  Unfortunately I haven't found any sewing patterns for these hats, so I'm having to make up my own patterns.

Here's some good fabric hat inspiration: http://delightworthyn.com/    follow links to her shops and blog (blog gives a little construction information)

The hats look so smart!  They've got a neat blend of elegance and casual style.  ^^

Good luck growing it back!  I got a bad cut last December and wore a hat for three months!  T_T  Does it seem like the more you pay, the worse they cut?

your hats look lovely! If you want to cover up te back of your hair (cause the front looks fine as far I can see) you could try wrap a bandana, Rosie the Riveter-style.

Keep on smiling, cause when you're smiling the whole world smiles with you!
