15 People Who Simply Wanted to Doll Up but Ended Up With a Disaster

It’s actually quite hard to find a good makeup artist, hairstylist, and eyebrow tech. Salons don’t always have professionals who do their work perfectly. And these “pros” often cause their clients to leave the salon in tears and feel completely disappointed.

We at Bright Side take our hats off to internet users who were not too shy to share their bitter experiences. We hope they will never have to repeat these awful make-unders again.

“I had my wedding hair and makeup trial and to say I’m extremely disappointed would be an understatement.”

“The left photo is me on a normal day with my everyday makeup.”

“When you accidentally go to the worst nail tech in your country:”

“A make-up artist turned my eyebrows into blocks.”

“Hair trial disaster”

“I don’t even know what to do... I paid $95 for this. The wedding is coming fast and this salon is close to the venue but about an hour and a half from home. I’ve had a heck of a time finding a salon after my initial on-site stylist ghosted me.”

“The salon gave me a Dora cut and I’m dying on the inside.”

“This is my botchery. 4 weeks healed. I trusted the process and this is where I ended up. $500 down the drain.”

“Here is what I got...”

“I paid $65 for this cut plus a 25% tip (I didn’t realize just how bad it was until I got home).”

“I have ALWAYS been very happy with my brows, but this time I am not.”

“Look what a barber did to my brother”

“I just wanted a trim but he butchered my hair.”

“Had hair down to my butt and asked to have it trimmed to the middle of my back. The stylist over trimmed and did an overall terrible job. Leaving me looking like Lord Farquaad had a growth spurt.”

“What I paid for vs My at-home fix”

“I got botched with micro-blading.”

  • Definitely contact the artist and have them removed — your brows are 2 completely different shapes. I’m so sorry this happened to you! © muffinssrtasty / Reddit

“So I got a (VERY) short haircut... and I HATE it.”

“It’s so much shorter than I wanted it and with my round glasses, I look like Harry Potter. I feel like I lost a part of myself and my femininity. I cannot even look at myself in the mirror without crying. I look like a boy.”

“I had my eyebrows micro-bladed today for the first time. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized they are super uneven.”

Would you pay for a service if you didn’t like the result?
