your ''epic'' hair ''fails''by still_larvaPosted 6 years ago
Have you ever heard about the girl who tied hear hair back with a thong while attending a tanning bed and forgot to take it out after? Or the nameless ''hero'' who once walked around all day with a booger/ chewing gum/some unmentionable bodily fluids in their hair?
It's all fun and games if it happens with somebody else, but do haircrazies care to share their own embarrassing hair mishaps?
Today I was running late trying to make it to a date, as I was in the batch and had to catch a train and my wardrobe was malfunctioning, and my legs did not cooperate in shaving process and I did not have enough warm water in the boiler, so I ended up just washing my hair with whatever was there (some generic cheap end shampoo, Pantene maybe), combing it and going (day was warm and it dried over the hour in a train). I get there, the date is lovely, we sit in the park, hug, horse around and all of a sudden he says: ''Your hair is not greasy today!'' I now think adopting CO washing probably wasn't that good idea a good idea for me... (facepalm)

Not really a fail, but almost. I was bleaching my hair and had just finished rinsing it off when the water in my building went out. Damn near had a heart attack thinking about what would've happened if I had waited a couple more minutes.
Also, in 10th grade my mom wanted to cut my hair and totally butchered it. She was normally pretty good at cutting hair but I had to run off to a salon to get it fixed and wound up with a pixie when I had hair to the middle of my back when I woke up that morning!

When I was about 13 I had natural healthy hair down to my mid-back. One day my mom decided to give me a "hair treatment" : she mixed olive-oil with a raw egg, smeared it on my hair, wrapped in a plastic bag and a towel and told me to keep it on for 3 hours... She later spent another 3 hours getting pieces of omelette out of my hair...
When I was 16 I colored streaks of my long hair with a blue marker - it turned green and never washed out.
Last year (I was 40) I decided to use Directions neon-blue diluted in conditioner as a toner, while staying at a hotel, one night before I had to stand a 3-day large scientific exhibition for work... My hair had an obvious green hue under those bright booth lights...

I think I was 8 when mom sat me down to cut my bangs as usual (straight and above my eyebrows) when she suddenly heard the intro to her favorite tv show and jumped! I had to rock an asymmetrical look for school the day after, lol!
What more? I used to have HUGE teased hair and I could find all sorts of stuff in there when I combed my hair out at night, lol. Bits of flowers, bits of paper, confetti, you name it!
The worst story I have heard though is from a friend to the family, her neighbour did a conditioning treatment to her hair whilst in the shower. She just grabbed a random bottle of conditioner and really rubbed it in to her scalp and lengts. She threw a towel over her head and left it in there, but it began to feel super itchy and weird. Yup... HAIR REMOVAL CREAM! I honestly hope that the story isn't real!

Wow, where to begin...
Well, I was one of those people who dyed black over black for a year because I was young and didn't know better (now I'm just old and don't know better). Then I went to a salon and they spent like five hours trying to lighten it and managed a reasonable ginger color. Then after I had about six months of regrowth I saw a short (really short) bob I liked and decided to let my fourteen-year-old cousin cut it. Needless to say it turned out pretty awful, but on the bright side there was no more ginger! It was probably karma since when I was fourteen my brother asked me to cut his skater cut hair and I started from opposite sides of his head and totally butchered it. There was like a 2" (5cm) difference where they met!

My hair fail is forgetting, every time, that I do NOT want to actually dye my hair dark, because it ends up looking so awful.
Man, I might've been born with level 2.5 dark hair, but I was not meant to have it.

The first time I cut my hair (with scissors from the dollar store, I believe...), I ended up cutting it really short in back and kind of...gave myself a couple bald spots. XD I had to run to the walgreens with my hair like that to buy electric clippers to try to even it out.
As well, not really a fail, but I've gone out with dye in my hair (and a cap over my head covered by a hat) to get food. XD
Hello, I'm Blu! And very often blue.

I have been to the vets with hair dye and a carrier bag on my head. My only epic fail was years ago when a friend of mine was training to be a hairdresser. She offered to do my roots (for money I should add) which were pretty long, maybe 4 inches of regrowth. As I have a lot of hair she decided to do it in sections, so divided it into 4 quarters. It was all going really well until she realised she had run out of time and just left. Only 3 of the quarters had been bleached, so I had pink lengths, yellow roots and a quarter of dark brown roots. I had to give a presentation the next morning with my hair like that lol. There was also the time that I got drunk watching Beetlejuice and decided a Lydia style fringe would be a good idea. (It wasn't) Drunken haircuts are rarely a good idea lol
I did then what I knew then, & when I knew better, I did better.

Talking about pets, I have managed to dye my cats paw pink once. She got into the bathroom and there was some pink on my work surface. Of course she managed to walk trough it and get some on her tail.... She did not like the rinsing very much, but the pink was kinda fetching on her ;). I was happy I use semipermanents. I also keep the bathroom door locked now when dyeing my hair.

Junior high, I tried to give myself a haircut and ended up looking like a chimpanzee. I had to go to school like that. I still cut my hair though, but I'm much much better at it now!

In 4th grade, my friend swore my hair would look awesome if I slathered it in baby oil. She did it all the time, she said, but she had a completely different texture hair than mine, and I didn't realize that. So she put baby oil in my hair that evening. The next day I went to school and at recess, a teacher took me aside and asked me if everything was okay at home because my hair was greasy and she was worried about me. So embarrassing. At least she didn't say it in front of all the other kids, but I'm sure they were all thinking it. I told her my friend put baby oil in my hair, and she let me go play again. Idk why I didn't see how bad it was myself, and wash it out before school.

My friend put baby oil in her hair once and we tried everything to wash it out. Wound up using dish soap and she had to deal with a frizzy mess until her mom could get some deep conditioner. Same friend also decided to try an avocado hair mask but accidentally used a rancid avocado. Man, that was disgusting. I almost puked trying to get it out.

I think I was 11 years old when my dad (who was once a professional hairdresser) picked up a hair dye from a beauty supply store (don't know if it was Sally's, this was a LONG time ago so I don't know if Sally's was open to the public at that time) for my hair. Only problem was, since it was a store for professionals, it didn't have any directions on it. Dad thought he could wing it, I guess, and did what seemed best to him. It was supposed to be a blonde dye. It turned my hair GRAY. Imagine gray hair on an 11-year-old! I was horrified and begged my dad to do something about it.
He wound up buying bleach. I had never before had straight bleach used on my hair (he had actually dyed my hair several times that year, but using regular drugstore box dyes). All I remember is that it burned like CRAZY. That was the second chemical process done to my hair in a single day, so of course I didn't react well.
I don't remember what color my hair was after that, but it wasn't gray anymore, which was all I really cared about. Ha.
I'm pretty sure that was the last time I asked my dad to dye my hair in any way until I was a senior in high school!
(In retrospect I canNOT believe my dad dyed my hair when I was 11. I guess being a former professional, he figured he could do it right. Which he mostly did until that day!)
There's a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn't that kind of the point?
People don't want perfection. They want honesty.

I haven't caused any major catastrophes myself, just got gum caught in my hair once and had to cut it out. I also rocked some pretty fail hair styles when I was younger. Giant, poofy bangs with a long perm... :shudders:
My mom always did my hair for me when I was a kid, but one day she was ill and couldn't get out of bed. It was picture day at school and I asked my father to curl my bangs for me. Once the hair was in the iron he rotated it too close to my face and burned the middle of my forehead. It was SUCH a terrible pain.
I was having my hair trimmed a few weeks after getting an eyebrow piercing and I warned the stylist about it. I asked her if she wanted to put a bandage over it, but she insisted that wasn't necessary and that she wouldn't get near it. So, she went to comb down the front of my hair and ripped out my piercing. I believe she was more traumatized about it than I was. :p

The only hair fail I can think of,is when I was 14 or 15 and decided to have dreadlocks on the back of my head.Several friends offered to do it for me but I wanted to get it "professionaly done" yes,professional dreadlocks lol.So,I found a terrible salon on Google that was in a very bad area,all the people there were from Africa and I could barely communicate with them in English.The guy that was doing my dreadlocks put a black thing on them,don't know what was that or why he put it there,but I guessed it would leave after I washed it.Well it didn't and it stayed on my hair until I cut them all and it was like black rubber.You couldn't see my hair in the locks,you only saw this black rubber thing which even smelled like rubber.I still don't know what this was but I'm never ever ever going there again.

When I was 18, many moons ago, I had medium brown hair. I wanted to have gold blonde to dark blonde hair. Also made sure and checked the colored pictures on the back of the Nice N Easy box of permanent color. The pictures on the box showed a medium brown turning to a medium gold blonde after 25 minutes. The color dye was ultra light beige blonde. I applied the blonde dye all over before performing a strand test. Left the dye on for the time of 25 minutes as indicated in the instructions. The result was my hair turned a brownish orange. Not good.

When I was very young, my hair was actually quite long and I wore it in braids. Once I got into a spider's nest during break time and when I let it out after school, so many baby spiders crawled out of it. I don't even mind bugs regularly, but it was pretty upsetting to say the least!

@vivienne OMG I'm gonna have nightmares about it!I can't stand spiders.Every time I have a nightmare,there's a spider in it!
