I tried the viral butterfly hair cut and now officially have the worst ‘do of 2023 already | The Sun

A YOUNG woman was left horrified when her at-home haircut went horribly wrong and people compared it to a LION’S MANE.

Yum Castrillo decided to try her hand at the viral butterfly cut, which involves splitting your hair into two ponytails and hacking off the ends.

The at-home technique, popularised by celebrity hairdresser Brad Mondo, is meant to produce a feathery and layered hairdo – but it has worked out better for some than others.

Brad recommends wannabe hair stylists cut off "a good amount" from the ponytails.

Content creator Yum was speechless after her home-do produced a “lion’s mane” rather than beautiful layers.

Her new ‘do has also been compared to a 73-year-old's haircut, a mushroom, a helmet and Stranger Things’ Steve Harrington.

The 23-year-old hacked off her ponytails – while they were still dry – over her bathroom sink. 

In the video she shared on Tik Tok, it is clear she was struggling to see what she was doing. 

When the “moment of truth” came to take out the freshly-cut ponytails, Yum’s jaw fell open.

She hilariously looked at the camera while trying to process what she had done.

The final product involved super short layers on top of a bob, with her fringe falling in the middle of her forehead unless flattened down with her hand.

Yum joked in the caption: “This is how I’m starting my 2023.”

Her brazen attempt at cutting her own hair has attracted 8.3 million views and almost 500,000 likes.

One person commented: “Butterfly Haircut girls are a different breed. 

“The confidence and seemingly zero hesitation.

“I wish I had that in my life.

“I’m scared of everything.”

Another asked: “Why did you cut it that short?!

“Also, you’re meant to do the style wet.”

A third gleamed: “I have had a really s**t few days and seeing this has cheered me right up.

“I am crying with laughter! 

“Oh my God, I love this – thank you for posting it.”

Yum posted update videos of her styling what she describes as a “fail butterfly hairstyle” but nothing seemed to work.
