Didn’t make the cut! Brits share their awful hair dos after trying to give themselves a trim

Most men make a trip to the barbers at least twice a month to stop their cropped locks growing out of control.

But with shops shut during the coronavirus lockdown, some desperate men have taken out the clippers and given it a go themselves – with shocking results.

People around the world shared photos of their questionable at-home haircuts on Instagram, Reddit and Twitter as the world looks to lighten the mood. 

Among them was a man who gave himself a dodgy mullet and a couple of mothers who trimmed their sons’ hair. 

Here, FEMAIL shares some of the best examples…
