A young woman looking for a cheap haircut thought she had struck gold by signing up to become a model.
However, she soon learned that sometimes it’s best to stick with what you know.
Laura, who is from New Zealand, took to TikTok and explained: “I offered to model to get a free haircut…it was so bad I would have paid £250 for a professional instead .”
She then shared a selection of stylish pink hairstyles she expected to receive.
So Laura was horrified when what she actually got was something very different.
Instead, the hairstylist had given her vibrant, hot pink locks, which looked like they had been cut with a pair of garden shears.
Laura captioned the post: “Sometimes free stuff just isn’t worth it.”
And it didn’t take long before social media users took to the comments section to discuss what to do next.

“HOW DID THEY SALUTE YOU?” asked one.
A second commented, “NOOOON,” while a third simply wrote, “Omg.”
Elsewhere, others have sympathized with Laura and shared their equally dire hair stories.
“Omg I recently did some modeling work in Wellington for a local salon and he cut almost ALL my hair…I smell you,” one wrote.
Laura replied, “Our modeling career ended before it started.”
A second recalled: “I literally had the same hair cut but dyed it blue! It took so long to get out of fix.”
A third revealed: “I had my hair messed up with free bleach and coloring by a guy with years of experience. Next time I saw him I threw up in his car (it’s was an accident).”
Meanwhile another added: “Girl I got messed up by this guy too. I actually got 2 cuts which were nice and the 3rd one I looked like a troll.”
