These People Decided To Experiment With Their Look And Made The Wrong Choice

All of the people on this list made a decision, and that decision was to experiment with their makeup or their hairstyle. For most of them, it was one of the worst decisions of their lives. Let’s just say that it’s a really good thing that hair grows back so quickly because these people are in desperate need of a makeover.

Keep reading to see what can happen when you don’t leave styling up to a professional.

Not The Same Thing

Check out the reference photo on the left and what actually happened to this woman’s hair on the right.

Those two pictures don’t even look like they came from the same planet.

Fried Right Off

This woman tried to bleach her hair so that she could dye it red like the reference photo on the left.

Well, it looks like she ended up burning off half of her hair instead.

That’s Not Natural Blonde

This woman looking for a very natural cool blonde color. What she got was a very dry, very brassy blonde color.

It almost looks like a wig. This ain’t it, honey.

That’s Not The Same Thing

The girl on the right wanted a braid like the girl on the left.

What she ended up with looks a lot like Will Smith’s hairstyle from the live-action version of Aladdin.

The Difference Between Silver And Grey

This guy wanted a really cool silver hair look, but now his hair looks more blue-grey than silver.

It kind of looks like a mix of a whole bunch of grey tones.

What A Mullet

Please tell me that this guy didn’t do this to his hair on purpose.

It looks like some kind of accident happened with the clippers while he was using them.

A Blue Eyeshadow Look

This girl tried to pull off a shiny blue eyeshadow look before she quickly learned that blue eyeshadow just isn’t her thing. Neither is fake tan.

This whole look just needs to be wiped right off her face.

That’s Not Purple

Do you see a difference between the photo on the left and the photo on the right? Because we do.

There’s a big difference between bright violet and muddy grey.

A Perfect Ring

This guy must have lost a bet or something. Why else would he shave a circle out of the top of his head?

Let’s just hope his hair grows back really fast.

A Perfect Bowl Cut

This guy tried to give himself a bowl cut. Now he looks like this.

I don’t even know how to describe this photo, but I think it should be broadcast to homes across America as a warning for what could happen if you try to cut your hair by yourself.

A Long Bob

This woman really wanted a long bob-style haircut, but whoever did this to her neglected to cut in any layers or do any shaping. It’s thick and bushy instead of sleek.

Hair grows back quickly, right?

An Attempt Was Made

This girl attempted to do some kind of elaborate MySpace makeup look and she ended up looking like a two-year-old drew an elephant over her eyelid.

I mean, at least she tried.

An Ombre Nail Look

The person who did the manicure on the left was going for an ombre nail effect. You know, kind of like the one in the photo on the right.

Well, that didn’t turn out as planned.

A Vampire Look

This woman wanted to dress as a sexy vampire for Halloween, like the person you see on the left.

But she ended up looking more like a clown than anything else, with that pancake white makeup.

Mermaid Hair

This person wanted some very neat, very red braids. She got red braids, but she didn’t get neat braids.

Some of the braids actually look more like dreadlocks because they’re all twisted up.

A Thick Braid

When you have thick hair, getting a really nice and neat French braid can be difficult. It usually isn’t this difficult, though.

Whoever did this puffy braid needs to go back to cosmetology school.

The Wrong Blonde

This woman was going for a natural blonde color with highlights and lowlights.

What she got was very dark roots and bleached blonde ends. That definitely wasn’t what she asked for.

Mop Top

I don’t know what is going on in this photo, but whatever it is, it needs to be taken care of pronto.

This kid can’t keep walking around with this strange mop on his head.

A Stark Undercut

Sometimes an undercut like this can look cool. We don’t think that this was the most unsuccessful undercut in the world.

But she was going for Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and now she looks like Llyod from Dumb and Dumber instead.

All Of The Flames

Well, this is certainly a hair style. It looks like this guy is pretty proud of the style too, because he’s showing it off in this selfie.

We’re not so sure that this is something that he should be proud of. This is just weird looking.

The Clippers Died

This guy was shaving his head when his clippers suddenly ran out of battery power.

He was able to charge the clippers and finish the job, but he did have to stay like this for 30 minutes.

A Dude With A Side Part

Reddit user StrangeElk posted this photo online along with the caption:

“this dude is running for school board in my town. got a flyer in the mail with this pic and almost spit my drink out.”

A Very Flat Top

It is almost like this guy walked into the barbershop and asked for the very worst style for his head shape.

Nothing about this is working for him at all.

A Little Too Much Off The Side

This haircut doesn’t look so bad from far away, but once you get close up your realize how imprecise this cut is.

This was supposed to be a very thin line.

Goodbye, Widow’s Peak

This guy wanted to get rid of his widow’s peak, so he just shaved it right off. It turns out that hairlines don’t work that way.

Now he looks like this.

A Ball Of Fluff

Whichever barber did this to this poor man’s head should be fired immediately. He asked for a gradual fade and this is what he ended up with.

Nothing about this is gradual.

Like Father, Like Son

Well, this kid looks like a very blonde version of Christian Bale’s character in American Psycho. I would never trust anyone who had this haircut.

Something really creepy is going on here.

Just No

His hair looked so good and so perfectly normal before. Then he took some clippers to his head and created this mess of a bowl cut.

It’s not the greatest look.

How Can He Even See?

This messy fringe doesn’t make any sense to us. How can he even see past all of that hair? It also looks super greasy.

This whole kid looks super greasy if we’re being honest.

Not The Best Beard

We really hope that this guy shaved his beard like this as a temporary joke and that he just shaved the whole thing off after taking this picture.

This is not a great look for him (or for anyone).
