15+ People Who Expected a Successful Transformation but Failed Terribly

2 years ago

Once in a blue moon, we’ll say, “I’m going to cut my hair,” or “I’m going to indulge and pay for a professional MUA to do my makeup.” But sometimes things don’t go according to plan, and the people we trust with our change seem to have 2 left hands. Imagine crying when you see your fresh haircut or makeup job, especially when you’ve paid your precious money for it.

After seeing the following makeup and hairstyle fails, Now I’ve Seen Everything can honestly say our worst haircut seems to be nothing compared to some of the looks we found in the following collection.

“This was what the MUA did to me for my best friend’s wedding. I still cringe.”

“I tried cutting my boyfriend’s hair. It didn’t go too well...”

“A makeup artist dolled me up for a professional photo shoot for a hair salon.”

“I asked for a high skin fade.”

“This is the result of my makeup trial for my brother’s wedding. It’s $40 I will never get back.”

“This is the result of asking my dad to go over my outgrown undercut again. He said he didn’t want to ’accidentally shave too far.’”

“It was supposed to be a ’goth’ look.”

Party in the back...and a kid’s party in the front.

“I’m a hairstylist, and my coworker cut my hair today. I trust her and didn’t look at the back until later. My boyfriend said I must have upset her to deserve this.”

“Coincidentally sneezing when it’s time for mascara — it never fails.”

“Asked for 3 inches off, and she cut off 5. Come home to find out it isn’t even straight or even.”

Here’s what happens when you try to cut your hair yourself:

“Didn’t realize one of my glove fingers broke until I was done dyeing my hair.”

“I’m reluctant to call what my wife did to me a haircut. But here it is.”

“I went for that shade and got this.”

“I was getting a haircut anyway and figured, why not?”
