There are times lately when I have the feeling I should cut my own hair. But to quote Fat Amy from Pitch Perfect, “Sometimes I have the feeling I can do crystal meth, but then I think, ‘Mmm, better not.’”

“Mmm, better not” is the advice these at-home hair cutters probably should have been given. Then again, if they’d have followed that path, we wouldn’t have the amazing pictures resulting from their DIY efforts. Check these out.

12. Bowled over

Lines like Neapolitan ice cream.

11. Patch it up

At least she tried.

10. No shade for this fade

By the standards set so far, this is actually great.

9. Hangin’ on

Dude at this point, just shave it off.

8. Moe problems

Oh, a wise-guy huh?

7. Crop circles

Imagine the other side.

6. Chop chop

What did you even do?

5. Majestic

Like a balding eagle.

4. That tracks

Like a poorly plowed field.

3. The weirdest bald spot

You’re doing it wrong.

2. Witness protection

This one’s apparently so bad it requires anonymity.

1. Canine cuts

Oh come on, don’t involve the dogs in this.

So remember, if you can wait, it’s probably best to just do so. If you absolutely must cut or style your hair at home, proceed at your own risk, and probably try to keep it simple.

Have you ever tried something like this? Was what the result?
