15+ People Wanted a New Look but All They Got Was Frustration

We all want to spice up our looks and give ourselves a makeover every now and then. Thus, we occasionally opt for a new haircut, hair dye, or getting our makeup and nails done. However, our expectations can often outstrip reality, and we may wind up with a look that was not what we expected. These people sought to improve their appearance, but all they got were regrets for their decisions.

1. “What my hair looked like — what I asked for — and how it turned out.”

2. "Did my barber play a joke on me?

3. Expectation / Reality

4. “What I asked for vs What I got. A little disappointed”

8. “I asked for long layers.”

9. “I wanted to be proud of my nails...”

10. “My hair. Thanks, hair salon”

11. “Just came back from the salon, balled my eyes out.”

12. “Well, I have claws now”

13. “Decided to get my hair done professionally after doing it myself for 3 years. What I asked for vs What I got.”

  • “Can’t wait to spend my whole weekend fixing it.”

14. “I wanted cute bangs and a chocolate brown color. Yeah, right.”

15. “What I asked for and what I got...”

16. “Apparently this is a “modern geisha.”
