Hold onto your pearls ladies, this story’s going to take you on a wild ride. Two young girls were uninvited to a party because they refused to dye their hair from purple to a natural colour. So their mother did what only a mother could do. She cooked up a plan for revenge.

The 10 and 11 year-olds have had purple hair since they were six-years-old, explains their mum. They’ve been having it safely dyed, with her blessing. But they were recently invited to another girl’s Halloween party, under the condition that they dye their hair back to a natural colour.

“I asked why and the mother insisted their hair would take away from birthday pictures cause they’d draw attention,” the mum explained on reddit. “I asked if my daughters could just not be in the pictures and she said there’s no way to guarantee that and to either dye their hair a ‘normal’ colour or they can’t come.”

The mother, refusing the dye her daughter’s hair back to a natural colour, decided to instead throw her own event.

“I said fine (this was like October 8th maybe the 9th) so I decided to throw a party for my daughters on Halloween since they won’t be able to go to that one and invited her classmates (the girl was in a completely separate class). We had the party; cake, bounce house, candy piñata and all that cool jazz. The girls had a blast and I posted a few pictures online.”

However, the mother who’d planned the first party happened to see the photos.

“Apparently this was the wrong move cause the little girl’s mother saw my post and asked what right I had to steal her daughter’s moment from her. Her daughter saw the pictures and was upset she didn’t get to come to the party because they didn’t have the things we did. Her mother said I was an asshole for one upping her just because my kids couldn’t come to their party and that if I really wanted them there I would’ve just dyed their hair.”

  • I reckon revenge is never the answer but that was a really cold thing to do to children! Wow.. so your daughter wouldn’t be the centre of attention in the group photo because 2 other girls had purple hair???? Wth????


  • What a silly thing to uninvite someone from a party for!


  • To be honest i dont have an opinion on this, it is drama filled & petty on both parts. I think both mums need something more to do with their time.


  • I think the Mum whose daughters had purple hair did the right thing for her own daughters. They invited their classmates who had nothing to do with the other girl so what was the problem. I think the second Mum was angry because the first Mum wouldn’t do what she wanted. Sounds a lot like bullying to me. My hat’s off to the Mum of the 2 girls for making sure her girls didn’t miss out on some fun.


  • This is all a bit petty. Who cares what colour other kids have their hair?


  • This is not fair. She can’t forced the kids that not belongs to her.


  • Uninviting anyone from a party is downright rude! And especially over something so ridiculous!


  • The mum did the right thing, stood her ground and made something fun for her kids. The other mother had absolutely no right to tell the girls to dye their hair a normal colour that’s none of her business and extremely controlling.


  • Pretty bad to uninvite kids to a birthday party just because you don’t like their hair colour


  • That is just cruel to uninvited kids to a birthday party. Even worse for such a trivial reason as hair colour


  • Wow! These kids were uninvited- rude, wrong, inappropriate, shocking behaviour. So to throw something for your children to combat that is absolutely fine. The first Mum needs to suck it up and take a good long hard look at her behaviour.


  • Part of me feels like these are first world problems, but another part of me feels like there is nothing wrong with throwing your kids their own Halloween party if they were un-invited to another Halloween party. Un-inviting is very rude. As is asking them to dye their hair to attend. Ridiculous!
    Reading the article , it is clear that the original party girl was in a different class, so her guests weren’t lured away/head hunted by the purple haired kids’ party. The mum requesting the hair dye is deluded if she thinks she has the right to request a hair dye , and deluded to assume that the uninvited girls should miss out on any sort of halloween celebration.
    However posting it on social media etc does smack a little bit of ‘ha ha, you missed out. ‘ which , erm, how to say it, does make you come across as a bit ungracious? The original party mum was in the wrong but posting it all was a bit tactless and and kinda makes the purple haired kids’ mum look a bit petty. Only my opinion.


  • The first mum needs to get over herself, asking people to change their appearance to suit her. What a joke


  • First Mum is ridicules’ asking that these girls dye the hair back to normal. Crazy request! Second Mum did what she needed to do so her girls had a Halloween evening and everyone needs to move on now.


  • are there not more important things in life
