A woman shared her failed haircut after asking her hairdresser to cut her bangs and was left with a wobbly and uneven line, but the mistake was all her fault.

As anyone who experiments with hairstyles will tell you, getting bangs cut is a big commitment.
You never know what it will look like until your hairdresser has finished styling it, and the slightest change in facial expression can completely alter the look of the cut.
And as one woman on TikTok discovered, getting an ugly fringe cut can be a real style mess that seems impossible to hide.
The woman posted a video showing her new cut and although things went well at first, she revealed that she made the classic mistake of being too tight when cutting, so her forehead was “curled” and his eyebrows were raised.

In the clip, posted on @TheGrenYahs, she said, “I just cut my bangs. I got them where they somehow touch my forehead but they go down longer on the sides. They are whispered and are exactly what I was hoping for.
“As soon as he finished, I realized the whole time I was doing this. Wrinkling my forehead.
“And then as soon as I have relaxed … are you ready? As soon as I have relaxed.”
The woman then burst out laughing as she showed what happens when she relaxes her forehead – as her brows drop and her bangs go up, leaving her with a bizarrely low and slightly wobbly gaze.
And while most might think they are blaming the hairdresser for the hair mistake, the woman fully admits her mistakes.
One commenter said, “I like that you didn’t automatically blame the hairdresser. You connected the dots.”
To which the woman replied: “Oh, sure! Definitely my fault.”
Other commentators have told the woman to “stay stressed out for a couple of weeks” until her bangs can grow.
“I live in a constant state of stress / anxiety,” said the woman, “so it really works for me.”
Someone else commented on the clip: “This is why I always cut my clients’ bangs an inch longer, so I go and tweak from there. We also all got burned for raised eyebrows before.”
While another wrote: “This is so much fun! 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 cut them again.”
