Hair salons are slated to reopen in a few days, but a mother who just couldn't wait has taken desperate measures by cutting her hair with paper scissors for children.
The mother of two, Ruth Crilly from Somerset, decided to give her locks the much-needed lock and documented the haircut on her Instagram account "Model Recommends".
The post had over 300,000 hits, and fans quickly commented on the video, insisting that it made them laugh, but admitted that their new haircut "looked pretty decent."

First Ruth ran a comb through her hair and started cutting it on the advice of a hairdresser friend
Ruth presented the video and said, "I'm going to cut my hair, what could possibly go wrong?"
She said an Instagram hairdresser friend named Kat sent her some tips and a video.
Ruth explained: “She was stressed, just don't do it, don't cut your hair. Your video is a kind of damage limitation. & # 39;
She continued: "For those who think," Don't say how to cut your hair, all hairdressers will be unemployed ", I can guarantee that hairdressers are not threatened by my handiwork."
First Ruth ran a comb through her hair and divided it into four separate bundles. She admitted: “I have the wrong type of comb and I have my scissors.
"One of my regrets is that I don't have the right scissors and can't point them out," said Ruth as she worked on her hair
After attaching the top grapes to her scalp, the mother separated the two bottom grapes and cut off the remaining hair at the ends
"Kat has something like thinning scissors and they seem to be really good. I have so-called Early Learning Center scissors that are designed for children so they don't cut their fingers. So I'm sure they'll be just as good! & # 39;
She added, “Kat said make sure you really, really, tidy it up. I don't have four hair bands, I only have three. & # 39;
After attaching the top grapes to her scalp, the mother separated the two bottom grapes and cut off the remaining hair at the ends.
After realizing how much hair she had pulled out, Ruth said, "Oh cr **, that's not the same level."
After noticing how much hair she has removed from Ruth, she says, "Oh, Cr **, that's not the same level."
Although her full haircut turned out well, she admitted her own mistakes in her IGTV caption and admitted, “I cut my hair. Wouldn't recommend it! "
She later added, "Okay, I'm serious now. I wasn't ready to mess it up so badly … One of my regrets is that I don't have the right scissors and can't point out how to cut it. & # 39;
Point cutting is a technique in which you vut the hair with a vertical rather than a horizontal movement to remove the mass from the ends and create a movement.
Her IGTV headline admitted her own mistakes and read, “I cut my hair. Wouldn't recommend it! Was warned, didn't listen. The story of my life.
»You need cut clips, hair bands and proper scissors. Do not use paper scissors from the Early Learning Center. Make sure you cut right and don't cut too much at once. I did that and now I have a long bob. "
The mother of two, blogger and author has over 190,000 followers on the social media platform
The post had over 300,000 hits and fans quickly commented on the video, insisting that it made them laugh.
Instagram users commented on the video quickly and one insisted that she was "almost disappointed" at how good her hair looked at the end of the video.
One wrote: & # 39; This is one of my favorite videos of yours. When I read the text, I thought "Oh haha … yes, Crilly, early learning scissors!". Then you actually produced it. I am almost disappointed that it looks so good in the end. & # 39;
& # 39; Hilarious! And hideous at the same time, said another. »With the shorter cut you look very similar to Michelle Pfeiffer. Fabulous! & # 39;
"Oh, I'm sorry, but I'm really in pain from laughing!" a third agreed.
A fourth said, "I still can't believe you did it !!! So funny. Looks pretty decent. Make an appointment on July 5th and give them a day to remember how to do it. & # 39;
