Toddler ends up looking like Pennywise after applying hair removal cream to their locks


A pesky death looked like Pennywise the clown after smothering her ginger locks with hair removal cream – which caused a huge bald spot like the horror villain.

Maisie Saward of Blackfield, Hampshire, had crawled into the bathroom last Friday night when she picked up the wrong tube and tried to imitate her father Luke Saward, who was gelling his hair.

When Luke noticed the 18-year-old superdrug hair remover smeared on her head, he tried to wash it off in the bathroom – but it was too late.

Maisie's 3-inch bangs have been completely removed in error and fun pictures show the Tot's hairline now creeping up to the center of her head.

Family friends even compared Maisie's new look to horror movie clown Pennywise, who is known for his large forehead and ginger curls that flow from his otherwise bald scalp in the recent adaptation of Stephen King's It.

Maisie Saward, 18 months old, of Blackfield, Hampshire, crawled into the bathroom unnoticed last Friday night and shaved her head with hair removal cream (pictured with her twin sister Eva, left).

Mom Kirsty Saward was in & # 39; sheer shock & # 39; when she got home from her Avon lap to see what had happened while she was out – but has since seen the fun side.

The mother of three says Maisie loves her new look, but the parents concerned try to hide it by tucking hair over the gaping bald area.

Kirsty said, "I called Luke and he said," Maisie has no more fringes, "but the phone broke so I just thought she had scissors in hand.

“When I got home I was just in shock. She came and cuddled me and I only cried for an hour because I absolutely loved her edge.

“Instead of just shoving her in the shower, (Luke) let her bathe, changed her clothes, and it was about 10 minutes before he even thought about taking her off.

“If I hadn't been out that long, maybe I could have taken care of it myself. I didn't speak to him for a couple of hours, but the next day I saw more of the funny side.

& # 39; Maisie thought it was funny and she still does. She was born with full hair, so she was never bald. She keeps finding different surfaces to rub it against because it feels weird.

“When she gets tired she rubs her bald head and every time I take a picture she tilts her head down for you to see. She loves it.

“Someone even said we should dress her up as Pennywise for Halloween. That would have been a good idea if we could do trick or treating, so we enjoyed laughing at it. & # 39;

The oldest child, Ollie Saward, four, had accidentally left the child safety gate open in the living room, so Maisie and her twin sister Eva crawled upstairs to explore.

When Ollie also left the bathroom door open, curious Maisie crept in, grabbed the hose and smothered the cream over her head before 37-year-old Luke saw her smile at him.

He let her bathe and tried rubbing shampoo on her hair to remove the cream, but his hands fell into his hands so he dried her off and waited for Kirsty to come home.

Kirsty said, “Maisie is very independent so we have to keep an eye on her to see what she's up to.

“Luke gets ready in the bathroom downstairs and Maisie goes in with him sometimes. The hair gel tube is the same shape as the hair removal cream so it must have tried to copy it.

“Somehow she learned to unscrew the tops from the tubes and found the only tube of hair removal cream in the house.

“Myself and Luke felt a bit of a failure for not getting these things out of the way, but when I realized these things happen when you have kids, we felt a little better.

"Parenting, especially with twins, is not easy, and when it makes another mother feel better, that's great."

On Wednesday, Kirsty gave Maisie a new combo hairstyle to mask the bald spot, but she admits it's difficult to maintain because Maisie loves to play with her hair too much.

A tiny amount has grown again since last Friday, and the mother of three joked that she hoped her little troublemaker didn't have to wear a hat when it got warmer next year.

Kirsty & # 39; s shared her mishap on Facebook and wrote, “So my one year old twin managed to get a tube of hair removal cream while I was out on Friday.

“Dad not only threw her in the shower like I would have, but decided to take a bath and then change her diaper so he wouldn't take her off in time. But thank god she still has a lot of hair. & # 39;

A Facebook user commented: & # 39; Oh bless them! That made me laugh so much. I hope papa learned his lesson. What a great story and it looks fabulous in all the pictures.

Kirsty replied, "I think dad definitely learned his lesson."

Another added, "This is a picture for their wedding day."
