We Cut Our Own Hair After Watching A Video Tutorial And It Was A Big Mistake

Don't try this at home.

Getting a haircut is one of those things that can be a pain in the ass because you have to make time for it and it costs money.

So Ken and Sydnee wanted to see if they could just cut their own hair.

Sydnee said, "I'm not as nervous as I probably should be." Meanwhile, Ken was scared shitless.

Sydnee said, "I'm not as nervous as I probably should be." Meanwhile, Ken was scared shitless.

They watched an online video tutorial for 30 minutes, gave themselves a haircut for the next 30 minutes, then went around asking coworkers how much they thought their haircuts cost.

Sydnee took notes to make sure she didn't miss any steps, while Ken casually skimmed through his video tutorial.

"I'm impatient. I'm sorry," he said. OMG!

It was GO time. Sydnee promptly gathered her hair for an upside down ponytail as instructed, while Ken figured out how to start his machine.

Sydnee was supposed to tie her hair in sections, and then simply cut directly across the bottom hair tie but...

It didn't go so well. "It's not going through as easily as I thought it would!"

This is what her hair looked like after that first (unsuccessful) snip.

"What am I doing, you guys?"

Ken wasn't having much luck, either.

Sydnee didn't think her haircut looked that bad...until she saw this totally butchered section that she didn't know how to fix!

"I know what a haircut is supposed to look like, and this isn't it."

"I know what a haircut is supposed to look like, and this isn't it."

There was no turning back for Ken, either. He was totally convinced that his right side looked better than his left.

BuzzFeed

His goal at that point was to at least look decent when he went out to face his coworkers. LOL!

That's when Sydnee decided to stray from the video tutorial and just try to fix her hair by memory.

BuzzFeed

It was time to face their coworkers and see what they thought of their new haircuts.

They both decided then and there that they would never do this again. Ha!

One of Sydnee's coworkers guessed her haircut cost $70.

Okay, so the haircut did look a little blunt, but it was only noticeable after being pointed out.

The response to Ken's haircut was a bit more harsh: "Oh, that's fucked up!" LOL!

BuzzFeed

Others eventually figured out Sydnee and Ken had taken sheers to their own hair. You know, because of the whole uneven-ness of it all.

"They definitely don't look like expensive haircuts." Keepin' it real!

The lesson to be learned here, boys and girls, is to perhaps leave haircuts up to the professionals?
