Let’s face it. YouTube bloggers and their well-lit, near perfect tutorials have most of thinking we can turn up with just about any hairstyle if we just follow their basic steps. So much so that we can get caught up in an endless search for how to rock a no-cornrow crochet box braids, heatless blowout or five-minute updo. Just press play for hair euphoria, right? Not always – sometimes we end up with hilariously epic fails.
While I personally wouldn’t want to reveal any of those embarrassing afters, some daring ladies have taken to YouTube with a series of “I Tried Following” videos to show what really happens when you follow these tutorials step-by-step. We saw one attempt at recreating a TheChicNatural tutorial and literally got caught in an endless stream of hilarity. Click through to see some of the best (and worst!) hair recreations.
