15 Epic Pinterest Hair Fails That Will Make You LOL

Diply 3 Oct 2017

Pinterest can be a wonderful place for any and all ideas, especially hairstyles.

I have gone to Pinterest to search for every single updo I have ever wanted, and then given that picture to a professional to recreate it because I am very aware of my lack of skills.

Some people, however, just want to experience the fail for themselves.

1. It's the Pinterest user's look of pure excitement that just breaks my little heart.

She actually cannot contain her utter joy for trying out this hairstyle, and then her entire world is just completely crushed with the result.

2. Braids are hard, guys.

I still think this looks pretty good. Does it look like the Pinterest picture? Okay, no, but it looks super difficult.

People who are able to French braid are pretty impressive.

3. This struggle is so real, it should be a documentary.

This is basically how we all feel when trying to attempt any Pinterest hack and then giving up miserably to throw it all into a ponytail.

4. Paper towel curls that apparently soak up any and all moisture that you've ever had in your hair.

This Pinterest style should really be advertised as the "Ms. Frizzle," for obvious reasons.

How anyone can actually pull off an updo perfectly without having any professional hair training completely boggles my mind.

TEACH ME YOUR WAYS, WISE ONES!

6. So apparently, when Pinterest advertises a technique for "loose curls," they mean "tight, springy bob."

The Pinterest user is serving up a look that just says, "Well, this is what I get for trying."

7. Trying to make any shape out of hair should just not be attempted.

I give the Pinterest user two major thumbs up for even giving a braided heart a shot, because I would see that photo and scroll past as fast as I could.

8. Totally nailed this bun.

I mean, the hair is still up, is it not? Instead of screaming "elegant charity gala," this hairstyle kind of turned into more of a "basketball practice" look.

9. I have one question: How?!

The rainbow dye attempter should not be disappointed in themselves because they tried to pull off what is basically a unicorn's mane. This is literal magic on someone's head.

10. Oh, you weren't trying to get super tight curls?

The Pinterest look is just so flawless and easy breezy. Why on earth would it be so difficult to replicate? It's like they want us to fail. I think I'm on to something.

11. This looks like a very easy method, but of course it's not going to work.

It looks crazy easy, but, of course, it's not. It never is! I honestly wouldn't even know where to begin with this one — there are a lot of twists and turns. I'm so confused, it hurts.

13. Even short hair can be a failure.

I mean, I guess it would help if we all knew how to use a curling iron properly. I sure don't. I consider it a success when I don't burn myself, which is a rare feat.

14. The look of defeat makes me think she worked really hard on this.

It's always the worst when you spend hours upon hours on something that looks #TotesAdorbs in the picture. Then suddenly, it's five minutes before you have to go out, and you have failed at hair life.

15. I'm sorry, you lost me at "milk."

So, make my hair smell like a dairy product, and also ruin my straightener? You know what? I'm going to pass on this one.

I'm going to stick with what I know: Letting my hair air-dry and throwing it up in a messy bun.

Is it the trendiest option? Sure isn't, but you know what? Works for me.
