You've done everything you think you should -- but what do you do if things still go woefully wrong? Don't suffer in silence. Any reputable stylist should offer to fix the problem on the spot or do what he or she can to make things right -- for free. It could be as easy as snipping a few wayward strands or you might have to wait a few weeks for a too-short cut to grow out. As always, be as pleasant as possible about it -- you don't want an angry hand to be holding those scissors. You should also be able to go back for alterations in a few days if you decide you don't like the cut.
