    Well, the family has gone viral after Ariel shared a picture of her mom's very creative effort for "crazy hair day" at her 4-year-old sister's school.

    my sister had crazy hair day at school today and my mom was not playing games and really wanted her to win 😂

    Ariel told BuzzFeed News: "My mom picked the hairstyle. She had seen people use a paper doll and wasn’t really feeling it, so she went the extra mile and added a real-life doll."

    A real-life doll? Impressive.

    The hairstyle, which took around 25 minutes to put together, features Ariel, aka the Little Mermaid, nestled in a green braid that represents the mermaid tail. Speaking on behalf of the family, Ariel said: "My parents have always had quite an obsession with 'Under the Sea', so my sisters and I have always loved mermaids."

    And little Atlantis (sensing the theme here?) absolutely loved her hair. "She loved it so much and didn’t want to take it off. She even went to her gymnastics class with her hair like that," Ariel added.

    But creating the hairstyle was actually a team effort. The whole look didn't come together until dad, Miguel Castillo, came to the rescue.

    Ariel explained: "What no one has noticed is that the bra Ariel is wearing is homemade. My dad made it out of tape because she was a topless doll, but my mom couldn’t let my sister go to school with a topless doll."

    Other parents have shared adorable pictures of their own creations.
