Not Exactly The Color She Was Expecting
Well, this person chose a funny way of making peace with the fact that things didn’t go according to plan. The woman certainly wasn’t planning to dye her hair orange when she started her hair adventure, but hey, mistakes happen.
What’s even funnier though, is that coincidentally, she chose to wear something that looked exactly like the bag of oranges she had at home.
When This Person Took All Precautions, But Their Glove Broke
But she completely missed the fact that one of her gloves had a hole in it. Luckily, she didn’t get any of the dye on the rest of her body like some other unlucky folks on this list.
Have Children, They Say
Having a kid is an adventure, and parents will surely relate to the fact that life never goes dull with a child at home. But when it comes to this kid, we are hoping that they at least learned a valuable lesson after this catastrophe.
While their parents were sleeping, they went ahead and dyed the entire bathroom and themselves a bright blue. Good luck cleaning that up!
Another Person Who Is Severely Allergic To Hair Dye
This is another good reminder to always make sure you’re not allergic to the hair dye before using it. Sadly, this girl didn’t get the chance to do so, so she learned in a very painful way, and even ended up having to go to the hospital to treat it.
By the looks of this picture though, it seems like she is being a champ about it, so good for her!
You Do You, Boo!
The square brackets seem to be the trend she went for here, and we’re pretty sure that the trend won’t stick around.
This Dad Who Gave Terrible Advice
Now this girl’s dad is definitely something. Apparently, right after she dyed her hair, he suggested that she rinsed her hair in the shower. What none of them knew though, was that that was terrible advice.
When she finished the shower, the dye had spread everywhere, and to make matters even worse, the dad decided to share the entire ordeal online.
When It’s So Bad That The Hair Goes Beyond Recovery
This person was kind enough to share someone’s experience for “educational purposes.” According to the online user, someone dyed her hair at home, and in order to control the frizz, she put on a relaxer right away.
Unfortunately, the chemicals didn’t go so well together, and sadly, she began losing huge chunks of hair and there was no way she could salvage the situation.
This Guy Who Smudged Dye On His Forehead
Perhaps the worst part of it was the fact that the day after was his first day back at work, yikes!
A Bushy Eyebrow Trend
Some people are hairier than others, that’s a fact. And while some decide to wax, pluck and shave as much as they can, others embrace their hairiness and rock it just as this person did.
She chose to bring the bushy eyebrow trend back to the books and even gave it a little spice by combing them upwards. She definitely deserves some credit for the effort!
Another Person, Another Allergic Reaction
By now, it’s safe to say that quite a considerable number of people are allergic to hair dye out there. Unfortunately, it seems like they only find out once the damage is done.
Like this person’s mom, who took everyone by surprise once the hair dye started having an effect on her body. It didn’t take very long for her face to have a huge allergic reaction!
The Hair Dye Allergies Just Keep On Coming
As soon as she dyed her hair, her body started having an allergic reaction that seemed to be pretty painful.
A Very Purple Mistake
After making plans with her friends, this girl thought it was time for a change. So she bought some purple hair dye and was ready to go for it. But by the looks of this picture and the caption she shared with it, something along the way definitely went wrong.
Either she didn’t read the instructions, or they were really unclear because she ended up getting purple dye on her entire face, on her hands, and even on the mirror.
Always Test Your Hair Dye Before Using It
If you are not 100% sure that you are not allergic to one or more of the ingredients on your hair dye, then the best thing to do is test it. As explained by this unlucky DIY dyer, the instructions were pretty clear when it came to testing the dye before using it all over her hair.
According to her, she totally should have done it before she decided to go for it on her entire head. At least now she knows not to rush into it the next time around.
When A Bottle Of Hair Dye Explodes
So when this person’s box of hair color mysteriously exploded, they couldn’t believe their eyes. The entire bathroom looked like a horror movie, and cleaning it was probably a nightmare.
Very Thinly Plucked Eyebrows
Hair fails don’t only happen in our actual hair, they may also take place in our eyebrows, beards and mustaches, and anything else that contains hair really.
This woman was spotted at the Jeremy Kyle Show wearing the thinnest eyebrows out there. While the thin eyebrow trend was certainly a hype back in the days, they are not so popular today.
No Cuddling After Hair Dyeing
Here is another very important lesson to learn for those who plan to dye their hair by themselves. There are a few things that you shouldn’t do right after you dye your hair, and cuddling with your partner is sadly one of them.
Clearly, this person cuddled with her husband right after she dyed her hair, and the remains stayed for a while on his arm. All we hope is that the cuddle session was worth it!
When You Go To The Wrong Hairdresser
As she shows in the picture sequence, things went from bad to worse really quickly, and she couldn’t do much about it. At least the end result looks somewhat fixable.
Taking Things Into The Positive Side
So, this mom and daughter duo apparently went through a small incident that ended up being really fun for the little girl. Pink is her favorite color, so when a faulty bottle of hair color dyed almost her entire body, the young girl couldn’t really be that bothered.
Her mom tried her best to clean the thing off her body, but as we know by now, that wasn’t a very easy task. Thankfully, the little girl took things pretty well.
This Guy Had To Take Antihistamines After Dyeing HIs Hair

One Blue Finger For The Win
Here goes another unlucky person who actually followed all instructions and later realized that there had been a little bump in the road. While she did wear gloves, as was recommended in the instructions, she didn’t realize that they had a little problem.
One of the glove fingers was broken, so her entire middle finger ended up blue. Hopefully, the unwanted dye didn’t last too long on and she was able to find a way to remove it.
The Expressive Eyebrows
To be completely fair, many people wouldn’t be able to tell whether this girl’s eyebrows are naturally that expressive or whether she purposely made them that way. Who knows, some people could simply be born with eyebrows that have naturally high arches.
While the pose definitely didn’t help her case in this photo, she does seem pretty happy about the result and that’s all that matters!

Now, we’re not really sure she person managed to do this, but she actually succeeded in dyeing everything with the exception of her hair. It’s possible that the dye is not as bold in her hair because of her natural dark brown color, but just how unlucky do you have to be to get this result?
We understand her fingers being blue but her corneas? How could the dye possibly reach her eyes?
“What Can Go Wrong If I Dye My Hair In Front Of My Laptop”
One more lesson, check your surroundings properly before dyeing your hair. And if there is one thing you should certainly not have around you before you start the DIY process, is electronics. This person probably thought nothing was going to happen to their laptop, but they were wrong.
As you see in this picture, little drops of color now cover the laptop, but we have to admit it looks kind of cool.
Definitely Not Dark Brown
In fact, she was so upset that she vowed to sue the company that sold the product. We hope she wins the case!
A Memorable Eyebrow Gap

When That Dye Just Wasn’t Made For You
It seems like having an allergic reaction to hair dye is a painful and common experience. While we are grateful that people document their struggles to create awareness around the subject, we can’t help but feel bad for them.
The good thing about it is that even though the reactions seem to be pretty bad, they could be easily fixed with the right treatment.
Another Walmart Bag Incident
But if one must really do so, it might be better to just buy a proper shower cap for it so that accidents like this don’t happen.
When Your New Wig Requires Some High Maintance
Wigs are a favorite for many people, but while some think that maintaining one is the easiest thing in the world, this person shows us just how troublesome the process can be. Wigs require treatments, washing, and brushing just like natural hair.
So when this person went ahead and dyed their wig pink, they couldn’t help but notice that the aftermath was a little too messy.
A Hair That Is Resistant To Dyeing
While some people have messy processes and others have allergic reactions to dyeing their hair, others, like this guy, have some sort of resistance to hair dye. Very enthusiastically, he asked his partner to help him dye his hair blue.

So to warn others, they posted a photo of the disaster online and captioned it with some advice for the folks with black hair out there.
When Hair Dye Bleeds All Over Your Body
There are so many important tips that we’re getting about dyeing, and washing our hair in the shower after dyeing it seems to be one of the biggest no-nos. It’s just better to keep that dye confined to the hair and away from the body as long as possible.
Thankfully, people seem to take it in a very positive way, so we’re guessing that cleaning up all of that dye is not the worst thing in the world.

This Person Who Had No Idea They Needed To Wear Gloves
And then there is this person, who had no idea they were supposed to wear gloves when they dyed their hair. We have a feeling that the tip was in the instructions, but sometimes we just fail to read the entire process.

A Before And After Eyebrow Situation
As we said, thin eyebrow trends were all the rage a few decades back – and we’re pretty glad that the trend has drastically changed since then. This girl decided to document her eyebrow journey 10 years apart and the difference is astonishing!
A few things changed, she stopped plucking and started filling, refrained from bleaching her eyebrows, and used a browliner instead, and the result was wonderful!

Getting A Two-Toned Mess At The Salon
This woman did things differently from most people on this list. She made an appointment at the salon, knew exactly what she wanted, and asked a professional to brighten up her ends.
She had no idea that she would leave the salon with the complete opposite of what she asked for. Instead of a beautiful ombre dye job, she left with a two-toned mess that she had to repair right away.
“Don’t Leave An Asda Bag On When Dyeing”
An important detail that people probably learn in beauty school is that covering a customer’s hair when dyeing it is very important. They probably also learn that what they use to cover one’s hair matters even more.
In this woman’s case, using her local grocery store’s plastic bag only led the store’s logo to be transferred directly into her hair, and she was not happy about it.
When Your Dye Your Hair Way Too Much
Luckily, she was able to get her hair back to blonde about 10 hours after.
