I hate my bangs so much.
I went to a salon and she asked me if I wanted chinese bangs and I said no. I explained to her I wanted my bangs like an arch and I did a hand motion just in case she didn't know what an arch was. So when she got to my bangs she asked me how long I want them... I thought she meant the middle of the arch so I told her, and then she just cut them bluntly. I was shocked, I guess she noticed because she said whats wrong? But I couldn't tell her because she already did them. They're so ugly, just straight cut right below eyebrow level bangs. Even if people think they look nice, I do not, so I'm embarrassed to wear them. They're not me and they make me feel weird. I tried to cut them, but now they're just a choppy mess, but still better than ugly straight bangs. And I'd rather wear ugly *&%^$#@Eed up choppy bangs any day as opposed to straight chinese bangs. still, I don't want to wear them. 

She used a net in the front where the bangs are I believe. I have some hair left so maybe I can add some? Or try to remove them. I never worked with a net before. But the thing is I can't cut the top off because it's part of the closure, so I'll have a short cut on top and then long bangs on the bottom? It'll probably look really weird... 

I hair hair stylists... they NEVER do what you ask.

ETA: I would've brought in a photo, but I didn't know how to add it to my ipod because itunes changed the whole thing and idk how to use it. Wish I had a data phone so I could've looked it up and had it there for her to see. I really hate my bangs.

Do you think if I call her tomorrow and ask if she could fix them, she would do it free of charge? I know she's going to be like, "why didn't you say anything?" because I was embarrassed/nervous idk that's just how I am, if you're not family or really close to me I can't talk to you and I especially can't correct you, even though it affects me. But these bangs are really getting to me...

Maybe it's just me, but I would never cut my own bangs. Too much room for error. Why not take a picture of what you want to a salon and ask them to fix it? Hairstylists fix bad hair cuts all the time.

Mine are way shorter than yours. They're just too short. I tried adding hair but now it's too crowded and lumpy... I'll probably just be wearing a hat everyday for the next few months.

It's weave so it can't really be fixed, plus my bangs are too short to be fixed. She cut them too short, so they're unfixable (in that way at least).

I feel like the only way to fix it is to take the other tracks out... idk how to do that w/o up my whole head though.

I THINK I understand what you are asking. 
 
You want a bang that sits at the bridge of your nose in the center, and tapers on the sides I think? 
 
You may need a second set of hands, but this can be fixed.  If you have someone to help you, take a seam ripper and remove the tracks that currently make up the bang area.  Then sew new wefts where the short bangs were, and have the bangs recut to blend.  The trick is have them razor cut, and then to take a pair of thinning shears to the ends to feather them a little.

I tried to ask my sister but she said that she can't do that. And now I'm back at school and wearing a hat everyday, it's really annoying. I'm just going to take the hair out during spring break, so I have to wear this hat for a month and 3 weeks... I should've brought the extra hair w/ me, maybe I couldn't found someone here to do it.

I like peacefulone's response. If you can't do it yourself (I can't install either), I'd take the extra hair and see if you can get someone that knows how to sew or another stylist to just fix the bang area

Yeah, except I wanted mine more like this:

(Idk how to embed)

And I know some people like the first style of bang, but the thing is that it's not me. Idk if that makes sense, but it just makes me feel really uncomfortable having bangs like that. I normally have long kind of side swept bangs, but I saw this girl and thought they were cute, and I liked them and I think they'd fit me/my style.

I'm going to try that... if I can't find someone else (to embarrassed to go back to the same lady), I'm just going to remove it. I'm going to try kinky curly hair next time so I don't have to get bangs and can just have a leave out and I won't have this problem.

Go back to the stylist!!! Dont be embarrassed or to shy... Explain to her that you asked her to cut your bangs in a arch and instead she went straight across and at first you thought maybe you could rock them but you just cant. Ask her if she can remove some of the hair and replace it with the extra hair that you have and DO IT LIKE YOU ASKED this time. BRING A PICTURE TOO!! If you dont have enough hair go to a bss and buy some cheap 8 inch remy hair that blends.
