The perils of home haircuts are something Josh Bringedahl knows only too well, after letting his wife, Rachel, loose on his locks with a pair of scissors, according to mirror.co.uk.
The 32-year-old from Grand Rapids, Michigan, the US, thought his hair had gotten rather wild and his wife seemed ‘really confident’ about giving him a haircut — despite never having done it before in her life.
Josh, a truck driver, tried to prepare by buying a proper hair cutting kit online but they had sold out — so instead, they decided to use a beard trimmer and kitchen scissors.
Rachel started by shaving the side of his head and then cut the top — but he knew things weren't going too well when she began laughing out loud as she worked.
The 28-year-old proceeded to start watching a YouTube video about how to fix bad haircuts.
But despite Rachel's efforts to reverse what she had done, it was too late — with Josh ending up sporting a hilarious 'Dumb and Dumber' type of haircut.
He said: "My usual local barber has been closed due to the coronavirus lockdown, so my hair had been getting a bit long.
"My wife Rachel was actually the one to mention it and she suggested that she have a go at cutting it for me.
"I knew the barber wouldn't be opening anytime soon, so I figured I'd let her take a whack at it. She seemed really confident about it.
"She went in by shaving the side of my head and started cutting the top with the scissors. But midway, she started giggling to herself and then began laughing so hard she couldn't talk. Then I realized something was really wrong."
He continued: "I burst into laughter when I looked into the mirror. I couldn't believe it."
After sending pictures of his disastrous haircut to his friends and family, Josh has been inundated with jokes about how he looked like Lloyd (Jim Carrey) from the movie 'Dumb and Dumber'.
Others also compared his new look to the character Moe from the Three Stooges.
Josh added: "I'm definitely not the only one who is rocking a unique look.
"It's looking a bit better now simply because it's grown out some. I'm still wearing my hat out in public though.
"Before Rachel cut my hair, I was thinking that my wife giving my haircuts could save us money. But I'll definitely be going back to my hair stylist when they reopen. I really miss them."
