Little boy finds an electric shaver at home, which soon led to a couple of botched buzzcuts for himself, and his two siblings.

Mum Stephanie shared the aftermath on Instagram, capturing little Teddy’s handiwork: a patchy close shave for him, and a huge bald patch behind his sister’s blonde pigtails.

“Do you like your haircut?” the mum asks little Eloise.

“No,” she replies.

When Stephanie prompts her daughter to explain why she let her brother shave her hair, Teddy interjects: “She said she wanted me to do that a lot.”

Rather than getting mad mum took the opportunity for a ‘teaching moment’, telling her children, “It’s just hair, and it’s going to grow back. It’s okay.”

Stephanie’s Instagram videos were shared on Twitter by a family member, who wrote, “Y’all, my nephew found the electric shaver and went wild.”

The post has since been retweeted more than 200,000 times and viewed over 7 millionw times.

OMG! She handled that much better than I would have. What would you do?

  • Oh dear haha! Perhaps it will grow back more luscious than ever, win!


  • Hahahahaha that’s so funny. My daughter had a couple of goes at her hair with scissors and did enough damage with them. Thank goodness we didn’t have hair clippers!


  • Mum’s right, it’s just hair & will grow back. More important to take that as an opportunity to discuss and learn from.


  • Mum’s right, it’s just hair & will grow up. More important to take that as an opportunity to discuss and learn from.


  • Oh I have tears, so many tears


  • I would have laughed….eventually


  • oh wow that machine is pretty good..it will grow back


  • I can’t believe how much they cut. I’d have been horrified but good on her for staying so calm.


  • My daughter got daddy’s when she was 2, she didn’t cut this much off but was definitely noticeable, as this mumma said it’s only hair, it’ll grow back


  • My daughter gave herself a mullet. Was quite even too. I was so shocked and the whole scissors rule etc is for paper! These things happen. It will grow back.


  • Oh no! That’s just horrible.


  • I will be so upset if it’s me. Guess the little girl’s hair have to trim off to let it grow back.


  • Yes, I love this mums reaction too


  • That’s such a surprisingly good reaction and to teach kids it’s ok.


  • Oh my goodness I would be so upset! I give credit to this mum, she composed herself and saw the funny side pretty quick
