Mom's Tape Hack For DIY Haircuts Divides The Internet

Parents, I get it. Kid hair is TOUGH to style and cut.

That's why we have hairdressers! We have real professionals who are trained to cut your kid's hair however they want. You can sit back, relax, and find someone else to blame if they don't like how their hair came out.

What you don't have to do is...well, what this mom did.

Hey, wanna see something DEEPLY weird?

Well, there you go! There's a woman taping her kid's bangs to her face. Don't worry about her eyelashes — thankfully, the tape didn't touch her eyes.

Hey, wanna see something even WEIRDER?

So, yeah. Meet the hack that broke TikTok. Presented by TikTok user @handsonfamily, aka the Hands-On Family, this method of hair cutting is so insane that people had some pretty intense reactions to it.

Half of this child's head is bangs.

Why did they cut so many bangs? Why are they still so crooked? Why is this poor kid being subjected to horrible "hacks" and can we crowdfund her therapy?

Yeah, same.

My mom would stand us out on the back stoop and cut our bangs with a bowl. Unfortunately, we wiggled a lot, so I always had crooked bangs.

Honestly, not even 5 Minute Crafts would dare.

I just don't see 5 Minute Crafts aggressively cutting across a kid's bangs and eyes with scissors, you know?

On the other hand, it would make for great clickbait. So...

No one could figure out why the family did this.

Contrary to popular belief, it wasn't so they could get an even cut line — it was actually to prevent any stray hairs from getting on the poor kid's face or clothes.

Some of the comments had me ROLLING.

"I think giving kids bangs is a sin. But these are ok." WHAT? This particular set of bangs is apparently free from sin. Any other bangs on any other child? Sin. Straight to hell.

So true.

New life hack just dropped!

I mean, may as well go the whole way. Just get the whole thing done and call it a day. It'll all grow back, right?

Anyway, you can watch the whole TikTok here.

Join me in my utter disbelief that people would tape their child's hair just to cut it!

What do you think? Is this insane, or is it kind of genius?
