Woman in tears after realising £217 haircut ‘makes her look like a Karen’

A woman was left in tears of laughter after discovering what her new haircut looked like in her car.

Standup comedian Carly went to a salon for a haircut and colour dye and paid $300 (£217) after failing miserably to do it herself.

But when she got back into her car, the realisation hit her that what she’d received wasn’t quite what she’d planned.

She said: “I just paid $300 to look like a f***ing Karen.

“I look like I’m on the PTA (parent-teacher association).

“I swear I don’t drive a f***ing mini van. I look like I have three sons who play f***ing T-ball.

“I look like I collect coupons, oh God, I don’t collect coupons.”

The term “Karen” has become a widespread meme in recent years to reference a specific type of middle-class white woman, who exhibits behaviours that stem from privilege.

She said she wanted to get “strawberry blonde” all over but she ended up getting two different layers of colour.

Another thing that made her regret visiting the hair salon was for the fact that she tipped them 20% on top of the bill.

Her video left her viewers creasing but some said the hair colour actually suited her better than the usual black tone.

“The colour is much better than you had,” one suggested. “If it’s the cut, go somewhere else and get it spruced up.”

A second jokingly said: “Lois Griffin. Sorry I just had to say that.”

“You look like a little lad who likes berries and creams,” a third added. “I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.”

Others said Carly should head back to the salon and ask for her money back.
