Taking a trip to your local hair salon can be very risky. You have to come up with a brilliant idea for your new hairstyle, describe every detail to the hairdresser, and then leave your beautiful strands completely in their trust. You sit back in the chair and relax thinking that with every passing moment, you are one step closer to looking the way you wanted. The hairdresser starts chitchatting with you about all kinds of things, anything to pass the time quicker. And then the final result is unveiled and you are… disappointed?
Where did things go wrong? Was chatting too much of a distraction for the hairdresser? Did something you mentioned in passing ignite their imagination and they decided your hair was their best creative outlet? Or was it just a case of a complete miscommunication and misunderstanding?
You might think that the worst thing that could happen in this scenario is to ask them to trim your hair just a few centimeters and to find out that they have chopped off several inches. Well, you’d be wrong. The worst thing would be to end up with hair like the individuals on this list, compiled by Tapoos, no matter if it is what they really asked for or what the hairdresser decided it would suit them best.
1. ‘Cause this is a thriller!
What a brilliant idea for a Halloween costume! Make your hair look like a pair of zombie hands trying to attack you/get your brain/mind meld with you! It gives your hair extra volume and it looks super freaky! The downside is, it’s a bit difficult to maintain. You will have to spend hours in front of the mirror trying to style the strands into a semblance of hands every morning. Absolutely, worth it, though!
2. If you ain’t first, you’re last
When you are a passionate racer and a dedicated chess player, you just have to display your love for your hobbies somehow. And your hair may well be your best option. The checkered flag/chessboard hairstyle will make sure everyone knows that you always think things through and that you always finish first. And that is the other reason why you don’t have a girlfriend.
3. All business in the front, good boy in the back
Not sure if his hair looks more like a Golden Retriever’s tail, or like a dead squirrel lying on top of his head with its tail hanging down his back. In any case, not his best look.
4. You are what you eat
This guy is like an onion. No, not because he wears lots of layers of clothes. No, it’s not because his hair resembles one. It’s because he makes everyone who sees it cry tears of unimaginable pain.
5. Wearing your heart on your head
Did you know Apple opened their own hair salon? Unfortunately, this is the only hairstyle currently available. It costs a fortune, like all Apple products, and unlike the rest of them, it doesn’t even look good. Also unlike them, it’s very useful. It automatically gives you a VIP status and you get privileged access to all new Apple products without having to stand in any queues.
6. Should I slice this one up for the road?
There is a 90% chance that people with hair like this enjoy a Hawaiian pizza, listening to music by Pikotaro, watching SpongeBob SquarePants, and locating the pineapples hidden in every Psych episode.
7. Let’s split up, gang!
If what she wanted was to look younger, we can safely say that she didn’t quite succeed. But she did manage to look like Fred from Scooby-Doo. And he’s young, so… not a complete fail?
8. In the Bank of America we trust
On a scale from one to our-bank’s-logo-as-your-haircut, how satisfied are you with our service? You:
9. Dreamworks is love, Dreamworks is life
When you love cartoons so much, you want to become one in real life as well.
10. I mustache you a question
Can you give me a mustache? No, not above my lips. On my forehead!
