When it comes to getting your hair cut, it can seem like it would be much more straightforward for men than it is for women. While we have a million different styles the choose from, before you even get into stuff like coloring and curls, most guys just need to keep it chopped around the back and sides.
Well, that’s not quite true these days. A whole bunch of men especially younger guys, regularly go to salons and high-end barbers to get pretty specialist cuts. And, just like, there is the chance for it to go horribly, horribly wrong.
This is what happened to this poor guy from China, who ended up with a unique cut that he definitely didn’t want.
The man went into his local barber with a paused video screen on his phone, saying that he wanted to look like this guy:
A pretty smart hairdo, albeit a very common one these days. It should have been pretty straightforward for the barber to pull this one off, but…
It didn’t go as the customer might have liked.
That’s right – in one of the funniest misunderstandings I’ve seen in a long time, the barber took one look at the picture and thought ‘oh okay, he wants a triangle shaved into the side of his head.
As most of the rest of the world will be able to see, the triangle in question was just the play icon on the paused video that the customers had come into the shop with.
While the rest of the haircut doesn’t look that bad, there’s simply no coming back from the fact that he now has a play icon shaved into the side of his head, which will be there for at least a couple of weeks.
The customer posted it to his (Chinese social media site) Weibo account, and it’s since gone viral, racking up thousands of likes and shares.
Either the barber needs to go to the opticians, or he saw an opportunity and ran with it. Either way, I doubt he’ll be going back there!
