A well-meaning mum's best intentions fell hilariously – and her daughter let the whole world know about it.
Hanna De Castro, from Houston in the US, recently tweeted a picture of her mother's hairstyling fail.
My mom was told to give me a half up half down hairstyle. She didnt know what that meant so she did this.. pic.twitter.com/4WmaJxVqcl— Hanna De Castro (@urchicahanna) June 11, 2017
Pro tip: a "half up half down" hairstyle is supposed to involve the top half of the hair (up) and the bottom (down).
Not, as Hannah's mum thought it was, two different sides of the head.
Twitter loved it, and it turns out Hannah's mum isn't alone in her mistaken understand of this hairdo basic.
In fact, there are quite a few parents out there whose strong suit is most definitely not styling hair.
this reminds me of my sisters third grade yearbook picture 😂😂😭 pic.twitter.com/jQjvnpzoAe— Merritt Cromer (@cromer_merritt) June 12, 2017
at least your mom didn't straighten only HALF of your hair... pic.twitter.com/hjq162ASIw— 🍯 (@HowMuchDuck) June 14, 2017
