A mother has been left in tears after her five-year-old son was given a 'Dumb and Dumber' haircut after a hairdresser botched the boy's fringe.
Candice Haines, 33, was gobsmacked when her son, Kobi, returned from a Birmingham hairdressers with her father, Ron Collis, 64, on Friday, July 13.
The distraught mother claims she asked for 'short back and sides' but Kobi came home looking like the character Lloyd played by Jim Carey in the Dumb and Dumber film.
Despite initially bursting into tears after seeing her son's uneven haircut, the mother-of-three had to pretend she liked his new hairdo to avoid upsetting the young boy.
Ms Haines said she was left red faced when trying to explain to other mothers that Kobi's new £10 hairstyle was from a botched hair salon trip and not her own work.
The mother claims she doesn't know the name of the new Birmingham salon but will not allow her father to take him back anytime soon.
The full time mother said: 'When Kobi walked through the door with my dad I couldn't believe it.
'I instantly thought he looked like the character from Dumb and Dumber film.
'His blonde fringe was completely uneven in the middle, I have no idea how my dad even let him leave the hairdressers looking like that.
'I was furious, it looked like the hairdresser had used a bowl to cut around his head.
'I only wanted him to have a little trim and he ended up looking like the character Lloyd.
'But despite how upset I was, Kobi was very pleased with his haircut and I had to tell him I thought it was beautiful.'
Kobi was sent to school with his new haircut - something Ms Haines claims left her feeling embarrassed.
She added: 'I had to tell everyone that his haircut was botched as it was so awful.
'I didn't want other mum's thinking I'd cut his hair myself.
'Thankfully we had his uneven fringe sorted this week so now he's back to normal.
'I can look back and laugh now but at the time I was really upset that someone would leave my son's hair looking so awful.
'I won't be allowing my dad to take him to the hairdressers ever again that's for sure.'
