Getting a haircut is a two-way street: you need to trust your barber to do a good job as much as he trusts you to stay a loyal customer. No matter what crazy style you ask for, it’s always good to know that you’re in safe hands. These 19 photos prove that barbers will go to extreme lengths to satisfy their clients, even if they know the result will look terrible.
That’s some serious dedication to the chinstrap beard – although, it’s not really a beard anymore, is it? Now it’s more like a plain old head strap.
Ah, the classic response to the old “I don’t have eyes in the back of my head” quandary: shaving them into your hair. Imagine standing behind this guy in line at the bank…
Remember when Homer Simpson turned 3D in that weird Treehouse of Horror episode? Well, this is what Lisa’s hair would look like. Now we know why it’s a cartoon…
Styling your hair into a lizard clutching your head might seem cool at first, but just wait until it starts growing back. Unless you add two hours onto your daily hair routine to maintain the shape, you’ve got about two days of looking cool before it turns into a mess.
Why does this scenario look like the barber’s asking his client what a razor is? Well, if that “haircut” is anything to go by, it’s probably because he really does have no idea. The customer probably won’t be so jolly when he finds a mirror.
Haircuts don’t come much fruitier than this, do they? From the delicate crosshatching to the two-color dye job, you could almost class this as a piece of art – judging by the amount of effort that’s gone into making this guy look like a pineapple.
This is clearly the most time-consuming haircut ever undertaken. The barber’s clearly gone to extreme lengths to make sure his client is satisfied, a word which here means “left looking like a man who’s abandoned all fashion sense.”
Some people just can’t let go of their love for Windows XP. Come on guys, it’s 2016 – Windows 10 is here. It’s time to embrace the future.
Those lines are so sharp that his hair could easily be painted on. Or maybe this is actually some kind of terrible facial accessory? Either way, we’re not sure why he’d want to accentuate his receding hairline.
A haircut that’s truly out of this world, from the spiraling galactic swirl on top to the (possibly) cybernetic wires coming out of either side of the guy’s head. At least that’s the only plausible explanation for this monstrosity.
This far-too-literal take on the rat-tail will eventually (that is, within a day or two) suffer from the same fate as the lizard – growing out into a horrible mess. There must clearly some serious commitment here to get the tail that long, though.
Getting your hair cut isn’t like strolling into an all-you-can-eat buffet: asking for “a little bit of everything” just won’t cut it when it comes to choosing a hairstyle. This guy, it seems, learned that lesson the hard way.
Who knew that hair could defy the laws of physics? Either that, or this guy needs to take out shares in whichever company he buys his endless supplies of hair gel from.
You know you need to find a new barber when your haircut leaves you looking like a walking, talking line graph. The definition around the edges certainly doesn’t help.
So, we’re all agreed that this guy’s favorite pastime is driving through cornfields, right? Either that or his barber slipped with the razor in a very precise fashion. Yeah, this was definitely intentional…
The front of your head will never look as effortlessly cool as the back of this guy’s head. If it’s any consolation, he’s probably overcompensating for his own lack of facial hair.
Do you think this guy knows he’s suddenly become a walking advert for his barbershop? That’s certainly one way to get a free haircut.
This barber’s clearly stepped his haircut game up. Or maybe he’s just a huge fan of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven.” Either way, we probably wouldn’t recommend visiting this particular establishment.
Who says romance is dead? This guy clearly wears his heart on his sleeve. And by sleeve, we really mean the back of his head. Obviously. Though it has to be said, his barber’s done a great job with the shaping.
