Hilarious Beauty Disasters You Won’t Want to Make

We’ve all been there, jumping on the trend bandwagon and trying them out: think unicorn hair, geode nails etc. But sometimes instead of achieving that on-fleek look, we experienced an epic fail. Here are some stories that I’m sure some of you will be able to relate to.

Excessive Plucking

I’m going to go with my most prolonged beauty disaster.

Eyebrow plucking. Late 90s.

So you remember when super duper thin eyebrows were alllllll the rage? Well, I went with it. I plucked and plucked and thinned those bad boys out. I had spectacular thin eyebrows.

The disaster? They never grew back. I look like I have eyebrow mange.

This isn’t the best picture proof of it (and ignore George Washington in the background), but there’s a nice chunk missing from right above my tear duct, and a dent right around the arch. Somewhat similar, but not quite the same on the other side.

Cutting Your Own Hair Isn’t a Great Idea

Youtuber The Rainbowish Panda decided to cut off her hair for charity in 2015, but (spoiler) it didn’t go particulary well.

She tied her hair into two pigtails and proceeded to snip the left side off.

After cutting her hair all the way to the back…

She realised that she had cut it waaaay too short.

Didn’t manage to salvage the other side of her hair either.

Eyebrow Waxing

Karlee Steel tried waxing her eyebrows.

She put some cream on her brows before application of wax.

After warming up the wax in the electric pot (in background), she applied them onto her brows.

She ended up with overly-waxed brows, with an extremely thin arch. Uh-oh.

Colouring Fails

New hair makes Brooklyn happy, so she decided to show her followers how she dyed hers.

She mixed the conditioner in with the hair dye before applying it onto her hair. Afterwards, she went into the shower as per the salesperson’s instructions..

It didn’t end up well. The colour was inconsistent in places, with her left side being an obvious shade lighter than the right.

Her roots are even more obvious now.

Hair Tutorial Gone Wrong

Tori Locklear was just trying to be helpful and teach people how to straighten their hair.

However, she ended up leaving it on for too long.

We all know what happened after.

I guess there’s a lesson to be learnt from this.
