A young woman has finally plucked up the courage to share photos of a horror haircut after her locks were “butchered” last year.
The 22-year-old, from Cheltenham in the UK, shared before and after photos of her hair on Facebook last week after getting the cut in August.
She also shared a photo of the undercut style she had originally asked for — which was a far cry from the botched job she ended up with.

“Warning — world’s worst hair cut,” her February 16 post began.
“If you’re looking for a butcher you’ve come to the right place — absolutely destroyed my hair and my confidence.
“I couldn’t even go to work because of this. I went in with the picture of what I wanted and they advised they could do this and well, just see below.
“This happened in August but only just had the courage to post — just think people should be careful — at Barber n’ Bar.”
Ms Burrows had shown her stylist a photo of the undercut design she wanted after spotting it online.
According to her subsequent comments, the business originally denied they were responsible for the mess, although Ms Burrows said they had ended up reimbursing her.
“I still can’t wear my hair up at all and it looks so bad and messy,” Metro reported Ms Burrows as saying.
“You can’t tell as much anymore but it still feels very thin to me.
“After a long argument, the hairdressers admitted they did do it to me and sent back £30 ($AU55) but I am still half bald which obviously isn’t great.”
Ms Burrows’ post sparked an outpouring of sympathy, with other barbers offering to correct the cut free of charge.
“They’ve gone half way up your f***ing head and drawn a few random lines! I’d go absolutely insane!!! I hope you went mental at them!!!!!” one Facebook user wrote, while another added: “When it grows back come down to Ruffnecks barber shop and I will sort it for you for free.”
“I hope you said something to them after you had it done because I’d of kicked off and demanded compensation,” another wrote.
Undercuts have become increasing popular choices for women in recent years, with many considering them to be edgy, on-trend styles.
