LOOK: Chinese blogger gets ‘play button’ haircut, becomes viral sensation

Let’s face it – a person’s hairstyle can make or break his or her appearance.

And at one point in your life, you’ve probably felt regret after receiving a bad haircut. So, to avoid reliving that horrific experience and achieve a better, more polished look, some of us bring a picture to the stylist as a point of reference.

Unfortunately, Chinese entertainment blogger, Tian Xiu Bot, experienced a huge haircut mistake. According to his post, he showed the barber a paused video of his ideal haircut. But the hairdresser seemed a little too focused on the details in the video.

For this reason, the stylist shaved the ‘play’ button on the blogger’s head and realized that it’s not part of the hairstyle that Tian wanted. His photos then went viral on social media with more than 78,000 likes on Weibo, as of this writing.

This perfectly sums up the “Expectation vs Reality” meme.

So much accuracy, right?

But the blogger doesn’t seem to be upset with the result of his haircut.  He even posted a funny video about it.


No matter how hard you try, you will surely experience worse things in life. But don’t let a bad hair day ruin your style because there are many ways to undo the damage.
