What does it mean? Something like wounds heal with time, or if you get a bad haircut, it will always grow out again?

Your hair is very unevenly cut , with scalps. After a certain time it will be even.

Nothing lasts longer than a bad haircut.

Yes, that's why I gave the alternative, but many associate a bad haircut with a very bad situation.

It takes awhile for the bald spots to grow out, so you feel self-conscious for a number of weeks.
