Can You Tell Your Girlfriend Her Hair Looks Stupid?

Her hair is sacred so be careful…

If you are lucky enough to have a girlfriend then you will probably want to do what you can to make her happy. You can of course do this by doing nice things for her, telling her you love her, always being there for her and making sure you avoid doing things that might upset her.

The problem is what do you do when she does something like get a really bad haircut? You know telling her is going to either make her really mad, really upset or really embarrassed and you probably don’t want her to feel any of those things, but you also don’t want to lie to her if she asks you what you think. Would it be worse if she went to work with a bad haircut and she came back and was annoyed that you hadn’t told her?

Here is some advice on what you can do in this situation:

Be Honest

Of course what you should do is be completely honest but also be gentle about how you do it. You should probably say something like, “you are really beautiful darling but I don’t think that hair cut really does you justice”. That way you cover a criticism with a compliment so that she can’t be angry.

Learn to love it

If she is sure that she likes it a lot then you can always just keep quiet and avoid any reason to upset her. After all maybe you don’t know what a nice haircut looks like so you could be being critical when you really don’t know what looks nice and what doesn’t. Surely, if the crazy salon design surrounding the stylist is anything to go by, they knew what they were doing when she was sat in the big salon furniture so who are you to criticise.

Get her friend to do it

If you really think that you will only be in trouble if you tell her what you think, then you should try to get her friend to tell her. Get in touch with her best friend somehow and brief her on the situation. When she hears what has happened she will hopefully be able to come round and tell your girlfriend the bad news without letting it slip that you tipped her off. She will find it easier to take from her mate and you will be able to say that you like it no matter what the friend says.
