Mum Accidentally Gives Son Dumb And Dumber Style Haircut In Lockdown
As we're all stuck in our homes and being asked to keep a safe physical distance from others when out and about, obviously some people are having trouble with their personal grooming.
While some are happy with quarantine beards to hairstyles that wouldn't look out of place on a Neolithic man, some people have decided to take matters into their own hands.
That's exactly what has happened to young George Hunt after his mum Kelly decided that she would give her 10-year-old son's hair a trim.
Needless to say, it didn't end that well for anyone.
To be fair to Kelly, her son did actually ask her to cut his hair for him as it was getting in his eyes. So - armed only with the grooming scissors that they use for their dog Rolo - she got stuck in.
As is often the case with stories like this, she accidentally took too much off, then tried to rectify the mistake, but only served to make matters worse.
She explained: "George was due to have a haircut just before the lockdown and his fringe was getting into his eyes and he asked me to cut it.
"I'd seen how to cut hair and do a fringe on TV, so I thought, 'OK, I can do it.'
"I had to cut it with some dog grooming scissors and the straighter I was trying to cut it, the shorter it was going, and in the end it just ended up a mess.

"He wasn't happy about it and he did look a bit like the character in Dumb and Dumber - we'd only just watched that film as well!"
She continued: "I initially sent a picture to family members and their response was, 'Oh my God, what have you done?'
"George was having to wear hats out on our daily walks."
She shared the results on Facebook - way to pile on the misery, mum - and one person suggested shaving his head entirely.
However, once again, they only had the clippers that they use on their family pet.
Still, it's an improvement, and George is happier with this than with his slightly more... let's say 'avant-garde' look from before.
Kelly added: "George prefers his shaved hair to the first cut, but I think the sides of his head are a bit bald and it's still just a mess all over - I hope it grows back quickly.
"He's glad that he hasn't got school because he likes to have long hair so it's quite a drastic change to what he's used to."
Now, having also cut her 14-year-old son's hair after he lost a bet on Fortnite, Kelly isn't allowed anywhere near her boys' hair.
She said: "I'm not allowed to cut anyone else's hair now and my six-year-old Ethan won't let me anywhere near him - even if I stroke his hair, he runs away!
"I'm never going to be getting into hairdressing after this, it will be my first and only time. I've learned from my mistakes and have a new respect for barbers and hairdressers."
