The four year old returned from her grandparent’s with a new look, sporting a mullet and her mum was in total shock…

A mum has spoken to The Sun after her daughter returned from a sleepover sporting a mullet. Serena, 28,  sent her daughter Alexis to stay with her grandparents overnight, but was shocked when she arrived home with the unusual hairstyle…

Mini Me

Serena said she made the decision to send Alexis for a sleepover while she completed her regular night shift at the zoo.

“I’d just sent Alexis off to her grandparents house for the night for a sleepover,” she said.

“The next morning, I got a call from them telling me that she had managed to cut all her hair off!”

Serena believes that Alexis may have got the idea to give herself a haircut after accompanying her to the salon a few days earlier.

“I thought they were joking but then I realised they weren’t and it was really happening,” she said.

“Apparently she had got hold of a pair of scissors and just went crazy. It all happened in a matter of minutes.”

Serena says her parents couldn’t believe their eyes when they found blonde hair strewn around their house.

Learning A Lesson

Serena says she quickly realised that she would have to shave her daughter’s hair to fix the mullet, saying that she became quite sad as Alexis had beautiful long hair prior to the incident.

“I felt heartbroken as we had been growing her hair for so long,” she said. “I hope she has learned her lesson from what has happened and will not be doing anything like that again.”

Most kids have had a haircut that they regret when they’re older, but we think that a mullet at just four years old is pretty unique – Serena and her parents will be keeping an extra close eye on their scissors from now on…

  • My toddler has play plastic scissors from a vet play set and she always says to me, “mummy, cut hair” and will start snipping at my hair.
    I’m scared one day she will actually get the scissors and chop all of my hair off rather than her own!


  • It’s hair, it will grow back, far worse things in the world.


  • Happens all to often, lucky hair grows back


  • She wont be the first or last to do this. Shave and start again. Something to tell on her 21st.


  • My friends son did this to his hair too


  • Hahaha… there are not many kids that haven’t at some stage cut off a chunk of fringe or in your case…. a bit more.
    They portray this quite well in the KFC add along the same lines.
    She is only 4 and her beautiful hair will grow back. Most parents will see the funny side of this as it has probably happened to one of theirs…


  • For heavens sake – the hair will grow back. What’s the big deal?


  • I agree – I’d be upset too. But it wasn’t intentional, was a child doing ‘kid things’ and once it’s done then it can’t be helped.
    I’ve always kept sharp items like scissors well away from my kids but can see how easily it could happen. I bet the Grandparents felt worse!


  • I would be upset but I guess if no harm done then what can you do


  • I would be so annoyed it would be the last hair cut they gave my child. Mine have only had it done at the hairdressers


  • Lucckily I have never had that issue, even if my girls wanted to there is no way they could ever reach the scissors as I made sure I kept all that sort of stuff up high where they could not get to them


  • Oh dear, it had to happen at grandmas didn’t it. Lol. My daughter face herself a couple of home haircuts. She regretted both pretty much as soon as she did it, didn’t stop the second one tho


  • My daught at 2, used an electric shaver my hubby left on the bathroom bench, it took forever for her right side to grow


  • Bound to happen if scissors are left lying around. It’s only hair – it will grow back


  • Nope only their fringe….I’d be devastated if this happened to my child.
