Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Singer Pink was spotted yesterday sporting a new 'do that's part bowl-cut, part bad-combover, and all bad. She knows it too. Not long after photos of her new look surfaced online, Pink tweeted: "the woman that did my hair butchered it. i hate it. thanks for pointing out how much you all hate it, too. helpful."

Don't worry, Pink, we've all been there. Sometime around mid-2010, we decided to put our hair in the hands of a senior stylist at one of New York's most-touted celebrity hair salons. For the bargain price of $250, the stylist slaughtered our previously long, straight hair. Slaughtered—seriously, it was like a hair abattoir in there. All the while, he talked about how, "You know, we really give everyone the same haircut these days—piecey, layered, graduated cuts." (Same haircut? That's a great thing to hear when you're forking over $250 for 20 minutes of chair-time.) Anyway, result was that we spent the next eight months wearing our hair in a ponytail and/or futilely trying to style it before it grew out enough to get re-cut, this time by someone we trust.

What was your worst hair experience? Sound off in the comments.
