I thought I would save £1.6K by doing my own hair extensions at home… I was mortified when I saw the final result | The Sun

A BEAUTY lover was mortified after seeing the results of her own DIY hair extensions.

With prices skyrocketing and millions struggling to make ends meet, finding ways to spend less has never been more important – whether it means cutting down on your daily Starbucks consumption or buying lower quality food.

Beauty lovers have also been affected by the crisis – and trying to save as much as possible, one woman gave herself a makeover at home.

Unfortunately, however, things didn't go too well, and she decided to share the major fail on social media.

Wanting to give her hair more length and volume, Emily Pesch, from Austin, Texas, decided that extensions would be the perfect solution.

But rather than going to a salon or having a professional do it, the penny pincher came up with an idea – attach the strands of hair herself.

''POV you thought you just saved $2000 by giving yourself hand tied hair extensions until you watched this video back,'' read the text alongside the footage.
