The video begins with Valentina, the oldest sister, explaining her beauty routine, but she's immediately interrupted by one of her younger sisters, who asks for a pair of scissors. Valentina asks, "For what?" as she hands over a pair of scissors, and her sister replies, "Just something."

As Valentina continues describing her beauty routine, there's a loud scream and Camelia frantically runs into the frame and says, "Khaleesi cut my hair! Tomorrow is picture day!"

As Khaleesi and Camelia argue, Valentina grabs Camelia and tells her to be quiet as their mother is heard asking, "Who's crying?" Valentina yells, "Nothing!" as she covers Camelia's hair with her hands to hide the cut. She quietly whispers to her other sister, "Close my door. Now."

"I told you not to do anything stupid! If Mom finds out, she's gonna kill both of you!" Valentina yells as Khaleesi hands her the piece of hair that she cut off. The girls' 3-year-old sister, Magdalena, then walks in and says, "Ooh, you're in trouble!" after she sees Camelia's hair.

After some quick bang-cutting research and a few snips, the bangs actually come out looking great on Camelia, whose first response is, "What have you done to my life?"

At the end of the video, their mom opens the door and suspects something is going on. She tells Camelia to turn around, and once she sees the bangs, she angrily asks, "Whose idea was that?" and all of the sisters point to each other. "I had to fix it before you beat all our asses!" Valentina exclaims.
