Cutting your own hair might seem like a great way to downsize your spendings, but most of us have learned that it isn't exactly an option as early as our childhood. These smart kids probably had the best intentions, too, but after spending some time with scissors unattended, they've probably cried seeing their bad haircuts. Good thing though, that the tears of these funny kids are not in vain as their bad hair day is an excellent laughing material for us! We're not trying to be mean at these kids' hairstyle choices, but rather remember ourselves in the same situation as them. Precisely because of that, Bored Panda has compiled these hilarious pictures of what happens when kids cut their own hair.

Don’t forget to vote for your favorite kids' haircuts below, and feel free to submit your own photos of your kids’ or your own botched hair do's!

Aww don't be sad honey. I believe the side ponytail could help. You just have to ask mommy or daddy to learn how to do something like this: 2a39ffbd5f...4cc31c.jpg 2a39ffbd5f7b507c0a61d381c94cc31c.jpg :-) I would like to hug her. She looks so sad. Poor little princess.

At least in this case it just looks like the fringe has been cut, ( which grows quite quickly)..Unlike my brother who when he was Six,watched chitty chitty bang bang and thought he too would stick a bowl on his hair and cut all around it ( like in the fairground scene)... Funny? Not really... Especially when you're going to a Family wedding the following weekend!
