It's the Pinterest fail but with hair.

Why does everything look better in theory? Why can't everything on a Pinterest board be that way in real life?

Though the color on the left is definitely more vibrant. If you wanted a dull-ish color, than the second picture is definitely the ideal reference.

It seemed so simple, in theory...

And yes, it's so hard to execute. When you want unicorn hair and get...well, not unicorn hair. The next hair accident is truly hilarious.

When getting a haircut, it's very important to post it on social media.

Even if it doesn't turn out the way you want, it's important for everyone to see. Everyone.

Balayage is like, so trendy right now.

Except I'm not sure that I would call this balayage. I would call it...a fail. Whoops.

I'm not sure what this was supposed to be?

A cool blue streak? Maybe. A blue spot for no reason? Sure. Any guesses? So many bad haircuts and styles, so little time.

Morning hair is the best hair.

It's 2018, after all. Memes are alive and thriving!
