Can you tell if someone has a nice haircut?

I'm working on two years of at-home haircuts. Sometimes I'd make my sister do it when she was in town, sometimes I'd just take some sheers to my ends and do it myself.

My hair is curly, but I often straighten it when I need to guarantee that I look presentable.

I'm wondering, when straightened, if people can tell that my haircut is sh*t.

Then I wondered, do people really notice these things?

So, do you notice nice cuts?? What stands out to you?
