A woman has shared her haircut fail after she asked her hairdresser to trim her fringe and was left with a wonky and uneven line – but the blunder was all her fault
As anyone who experiments with hairstyles will tell you, getting a fringe cut in is a big commitment.
You never quite know what it’s going to look like until your hairdresser has finished styling it, and the slightest change in facial expression can completely alter the way the cut looks.
And as one woman on TikTok has discovered, getting a bad fringe cut in can be an absolute style disaster that seems impossible to cover up.
The woman posted a video in which she showed off her new trim, and while things looked good at first, she revealed she’d made the classic mistake of being too tense during the cut so her forehead was “scrunched” and her eyebrows were raised.

In the clip, posted to @TheGrenYahs, she said: “I just got my bangs trimmed. I got them where they kind of touch my brow but they go down longer on the sides. They’re whispy, and they’re exactly what I was hoping for.
“As soon as she finished I realised the entire time, I was doing this. Scrunching my forehead up.
“And then as soon as I relaxed … are you ready? As soon as I relaxed.”
The woman then burst out laughing as she showed what happens when she relaxes her forehead – as her eyebrows lower and her fringe rises up, leaving her with a bizarrely short and slightly wonky look.
And while most might think to blame the hairdresser for the hair blunder, the woman is fully owning up to her own mistakes.
One commenter said: “I love that you didn’t just automatically blame the hair dresser. You connected the dots.”
To which the woman replied: “Oh for sure! Definitely my fault.”
Other commenters told the woman to just “stay stressed for a couple of weeks” until her fringe can grow out.
“I live in a constant state of stress/anxiety”, the woman said, “so this actually works for me.”
Someone else commented on the clip: “This is why I always cut my clients’ bangs an inch longer, then go in and modify from there. We’ve all even burned by the raised brows before.”
While another wrote: “That’s so funny! I tell my clients to relax their foreheads. I found out the hard way.”
A third posted: “You just bought yourself 2 extra weeks before you have to get them trimmed again.”
