Woman Horrified After Realizing Her Stylist Gave Her A $300 'Karen' Haircut

What happens when you go to a hair salon, and you don't like your haircut? Do you complain? Do you cry? Or do you get mad?

Well, if you're this woman, you do the middle one. After paying for an expensive haircut that didn't live up to her expectations, she recorded a video for the whole world to see. Now, of course, it's trending on TikTok for all the odd reasons. Check it out.

Stand-up comedian Carly, who goes by the TikTok handle @icarlyreboot, recently posted a hilarious video.

In it, she's visibly upset after visiting a hair salon. She claims that the salon gave her what she calls a "Karen" haircut — whatever that means, ha, ha!

She lists off her complaints with the haircut as she continues crying.

In her own words, she says she looks "...like I’m on the PTA (parent-teacher association)," and then she swears that she doesn't drive a mini-van. Okay?

Come down, lady. But she just keeps going.

She says things like, "I look like I have three sons who play [expletive] T-ball." And then she adds, “I look like I collect coupons, oh God, I don’t collect coupons.”

Oh my goodness.

So what is she really that upset about, huh?

Well, as you know, the term "Karen" has become a widespread meme in recent years. It references a specific type of middle-class white woman who exhibits certain behaviors that stem from privilege.

I suppose she doesn't want to be associated with that.

Or she doesn't want other people to associate her with it either. But who picked that haircut anyway? If she did it herself, then she's only got herself to blame, no?

Carly's over-the-top reaction to her haircut was emotional.

But — hold on a minute — she is a comedian, after all, so you pretty much have to take everything she says with a grain of salt. Am I right? Aha, I think I'm on to something here.

Well, after she posted this video on TikTok, people started leaving plenty of hilarious comments.

I'm going to share with you a few of my favorite ones here, hee-hee. I guess folks got a bit of a kick out of it.

Others commented that the haircut and hair color looks way better on her than what she had before.

But then some people were horrified that she paid $300 for this. Heck, I think I would be, too. That's pretty steep for me.

So what do you think of this?

Do you take it seriously, or do you think she's playing up the whole thing? My take is that it's a bit of both.

Maybe she didn't like the haircut but found a cool angle to post a video about it, huh? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
