Little Girl Left 'Looking Like Pennywise' After Smothering Herself In Hair Removal Cream
| Last updated
A little girl was left 'looking like Pennywise the Clown' after she decided to smother hair removal cream over her long locks. Well, it's not too long until Halloween, is it?
Maisie Saward snuck off to the bathroom unnoticed last Friday, after her older brother had accidentally left the baby gate open.
Once in the bathroom she got her hands on some hair removal cream and smeared it generously across her head.
As soon as dad Luke saw what had happened, he quickly washed it out but it was too late and the cream had already done its thing, leaving little Maisie with a hairline that started in the middle of her head.
Poor Maisie has since been compared to Pennywise from the creepy Stephen King flick It.
Mum Kirsty said she was in 'pure shock' when she got home and saw her little girl, but has since managed to see the funny side.
Kirsty, from Blackfield, Hampshire, said: "I'd called Luke and he said, 'Maisie's got no fringe left,' but the phone broke up, so I just thought she'd got hold of some scissors.
"When I got home I was just in pure shock. She came and gave me a cuddle and I just cried for an hour because I absolutely loved her fringe.
"Rather than just shove her under the shower, [Luke] ran her a bath, got her changed and it took about 10 minutes before he even thought about taking it off.
"If I hadn't been out for so long, maybe I'd have been able to deal with it myself. I didn't speak to him for a couple of hours, but the next day I started to see more of the funny side.
"Maisie found it hilarious and she still does. She was born with a full head of hair, so she's never been bald. She keeps finding different surfaces to rub it up against because it feels funny.
"When she gets tired, she rubs her bald patch, and every time I go to take a picture she bends her head down so you can see it. She's loving it.
"Someone even said we should dress her up as Pennywise for Halloween.
"That would have been a good idea if we could go trick or treating, so we enjoyed laughing at that."
