I remember when I was in 1st grade, I decided I was going to give myself bangs. I used a nail scissor and cut a small clump of hair in the front about one inch long. My mother took me to the hairdresser to “fix it” the following day.

It’s a good thing I didn’t get my hands on some electric clippers, otherwise my mom would have probably taken me to the wig store instead of the hair salon. That’s after she stopped crying about how her beautiful baby girl looked like an eighty-year-old man.

Have your kids ever cut their own hair? Did they give themselves as bad a haircut as the kid in the video below?

I don’t think so.

Kudos to mom for letting the magic happen. I think there are two lessons to be learned from the video below.

1) Do not leave your electric clippers in an accessible place if you have children in the house.

2) If you walk into the bathroom when the worst has already happened, there’s really nothing to do but film it and put it on the internet.
