Parent Has ‘No Sympathy’ After 10-Year-Old Daughter Cuts Her Own Bangs And Hates How It Looks

We’ve all seen at least one of those cringe-worthy films of someone attempting to cut their own hair at home and failing badly. In this story when her daughter didn’t listen and went ahead with it anyhow, the parent wasn’t exactly sympathetic. Read the story and let us know whether the parent is right/wrong for not feeling sorry for the child after she didn’t listen?

My 10 year old daughter wanted bangs for a long time because a friend of her’s recently had her hair cut and had bangs cut and it ended up being very cute.

My daughter has beautiful hair, it’s very long, but it’s thin. I had my cousin, who is a hairdresser who actually has an area of focus on kids haircuts, consult and she said that if we cut bangs into my daughter’s hair it wouldn’t look right due to how thin her hair is.

I normally let my daughter have a say in the choices she makes regarding clothes and hair but on this one I put my foot down because I know it won’t look good and she is going to wind up unhappy. My cousin also uploaded a photo of my daughter to FaceApp and showed me what she would look like with bangs and it just wasn’t a good look (I know FaceApp isn’t 100% accurate but it was pretty close in this regard).

Day before yesterday my daughter told me she was going to take some alone time in our bathroom. It was only after she’d been in the bathroom a while that I noticed the scissors I keep in the kitchen were missing. These are big meat scissors. And then I heard her in the bathroom crying so I made her open the door and she was hunkered with her back to me, sobbing, and I saw a hunk of hair in the sink.

She had watched a TikTok compilation of people cutting their hair and tried to do bangs! It was not a good result. The hair doesn’t lay flat, she cuts very unevenly, and she cuts too short (using your index finger place the tip in the center part and go down to the first bend and that’s how short she cut).

I really didn’t know what to say so I made sure hadn’t hurt herself with the scissors, which she didn’t. I looked at her hair, realized I wasn’t going to be able to even it up myself, so I called my cousin, who came over and made the cut even but it required cutting shorter, and now her hair is f***ed up.

My daughter is mortified and doesn’t want to go into public now. She keeps begging me to fix it even though I’ve explained to her, and my cousin explained it can’t be fixed. So I told her, “this is what happens when you don’t listen. You made the mistake yourself. You hid in the bathroom because you knew it was wrong. You have to live with the consequences and wait for it to grow.”

My husband says I’m being very cold and unsympathetic and that our daughter is 10, she didn’t know any better, she was just learning and doing what kids do. I feel that she knew exactly what she was doing and that it was wrong, hence her hiding from me. My husband said that if I had just taken her to the salon and had her hair cut then she wouldn’t have done it herself. My daughter hates bangs, and says my cousin was right that it wouldn’t look good so if I had taken her to get it done then she’d be blaming me. We’re at a stalemate. What are your opinions? Am I a Jerk ?
