“Oh, no. No, no, no, no, no, no, no! People can’t see me like this. My own mother won’t recognize me.” Chances are, nearly all of us have felt like this after a horrendous haircut. Whether by the will of a newbie/hungover/angry hairstylist or by your own clumsy hands at home, you’ve ended up massacring your hairdo. And now you can’t leave home out of shame. (Which is kind of alright what with the global pandemic, lockdowns, and all.)
There’s a hilarious subreddit called ‘Just Eff My Crap Up’ (paraphrasing their name a bit; can you guess what their real name is?) that collects the most unfortunate, badly done haircuts on the net. Check out some of the best examples of what not to do to your hair below and remember to upvote the pics that made your hair follicles tingle as you scroll down.
Getting a bad haircut is easy enough.

You would think that haircuts like the bowl cut are never gonna be trendy. Wrong. It’s happening and thanks to extremely talented hairstylists, we see a lot of hipsters rocking a very fashionable bowl. It’s all about pattern, symmetry, and (sometimes) controlled asymmetry. If I see patchy haircuts, holes or broken hairlines, I am gonna assume the worst,” he told Bored Panda. Read on for the full interview.
