THEY PROBABLY WON’T happen to you… but WHAT IF THEY DO.

2. Burning your hair off with a straightener or curling iron

3. Cutting your ankle with a razor

So close, so smooth, and then you feel the nick. The pain…

4. Hair dye is not what you think it is

Instead, it’s some hair dissolving cream, or worse… coloured green. What if the manufacturer screwed up?! HOW WILL YOU KNOW.

7. LEAVING IT ON

This entire list could be hair iron related. But the fear that you’ll accidentally leave it on, or have done, will haunt you for days. Haven’t you heard all the stories?

8. You’re constantly weary of how mank your make up brushes are getting

You heard they’re little havens of bacteria but you just can’t find the time to wash them. GAH.

9. Accidentally shaving your eyebrows off with a massive slip of the thumb

Oh, I’ll just put my razor down and… ARGH, there goes your eyebrows. Both of them. Clumsy you.
