We've all been tempted to try out a DIY haircut during lockdown, and kids are no different, with several parents sharing their children's hilarious hairdressing fails.
Alan and Natasha Fields couldn't believe their eyes when five-year-old Lennon decided to shave his head in secret. Alan, 47, had been giving himself a trim, and after leaving the room for five minutes, little Lennon decided to copy his dad - taking the clippers to his own hair!
Returning to find Lennon with half his locks, 47-year-old Natasha from Walsall, was distraught, explaining she was nearly in tears.
Natasha said: "He's normally really scared of the hair clippers, he hates the noise and he doesn't even like looking at them.
"That's what made it even more shocking, we never thought for a second that he would pick them up and start cutting his own hair.
"My husband came to show me his progress with his own haircut while the clippers were on charge.
"He went back a few minutes later and shouted for me to come and look at Lennon. When I saw him I wanted to cry. He had done it with no grade on so he was literally bald in places.
"But he was so proud of himself for overcoming his fear of the clippers that I had to hold back my tears and say 'well done, you're such a good boy, but let's finish the job'."
After levelling out Lennon's shaved head, the five-year-old didn't like his new lockdown look and decided to wear one of Natasha's wigs instead - until Alan also shaved his in moral support!
"In the end everybody had a lockdown haircut and it's a good job it was done in lockdown because I wouldn't be seen out with either of them looking like that!" Added Natasha.
Meanwhile, one mum was left in hysterics when her son took a pair of children's scissors to his blonde locks after deciding he looked too much like Boris Johnson!
Melanie Henry, 32, from Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, left five-year-old son, Angus, to play while she took a work call and returned to find he'd chopped off his blonde locks with a pair of children's scissors.
She said: "I was on a work call when and when I came off he had cut his hair so all the fringe was gone.
"I just asked him what had happened and he said he did it because I'd said that the salons were shut and he didn't want to wait for a hair cut.
"I was just so shocked at what he'd done, he'd used a pair of the primary school scissors. Because of how his hair looked last lockdown, he just didn't want people saying he looked like Boris Johnson again. We did see the funny side of it."
Teacher, Melanie, has been working from home as well as keeping an eye on Angus and his siblings, Struan, nine, and Piper, four.
The mum tried to salvage the situation by shaving off the rest of Angus' hair and thankfully, he loves his new look!
"I had to give him a skin head and he's never had his hair that short before but he likes it thankfully," she said.
"I'm working from home and the crowd control can be quite tricky. I was only on the phone for about 15 minutes.
"It has been months since they've had a haircut and I haven't been giving the kids lockdown haircuts, we've been waiting for the salons to reopen.
"The salon we usually go to thought his Boris haircut was hilarious. Angus did think cutting his own hair was funny, we all saw the funny side. He was just glad he was finally getting a haircut."
We can't stop laughing at these!
