We’ve all had bad haircuts during our lives. I had one so bad once that I figured the barber had been blind and I was on a hidden-camera show.

It turned out that wasn’t the case…I just got a really sh^tty haircut and my family and friends made fun of me for the next few weeks. It was a very trying time in my life.

Let’s explore these hair fails together, but try to be sensitive and not burst out laughing, okay? These people have feelings, too.
