Nine-year-old girl is left mortified after accidentally chopping her fringe into a Dumb and Dumber-style haircut just days before a school photo
- Megan Wharry hacked off her hair leaving her looking like Jim Carrey character
- Her mother bought the school photo four years ago to embarrass her later
- She is now sharing the picture for the first time since the disastrous haircut
Megan was left alone for a mere matter of minutes before she did this to her hair with a pair of scissors
A schoolgirl who accidentally cut off her own fringe is haunted by her mishap after her mother bought her school photo just days later.
Megan Wharry, nine, hacked off her hair in a botched trim that left her looking like Jim Carrey’s character Lloyd from nineties comedy Dumb and Dumber.
Her mother, Gemma Martins, had only left Megan, then five, alone for a few minutes when she cut herself the new fringeless do.
The 28-year-old bought the school photo just two days later in a bid to embarrass her later down the line and is now sharing the hilarious pictures for the first time.
Gemma, from Larne, Northern Ireland, said: ‘I’d just got her hair cut into a nice bob with a fringe, all ready for her only second ever school photo. I left her watching TV, whilst I headed for a quick shower.
‘But unbeknown to me, there were a pair of scissors on the draining board, and Megan wasn’t as big of a fan of the fringe as it was.
‘I didn’t say anything when I saw her, I couldn’t – all I saw was the hair around her and I knew there was no way I could fix it.
Megan’s mother, Gemma (pictured with her daughter) bought the school photo so that she could embarrass her by haunting her with the mistake later down the line
‘We had a fancy family meal and everyone just found it hilarious – we had to just let it grow out but I was cringing inside.’
The mortified mother planned the perfect revenge for the wannabe stylist however and decided to purchase her mortifying school photo.

Gemma, a care assistant, said: ‘I’m redecorating at the moment and I know which photo is going to be pride of place.
‘I’ve got all of her school photos over the years, and they’ll all be hung on the wall, ready for all visitors to see. It’s most certainly one that will make an appearance at her 18th birthday.’
Megan said: ‘I’m so shocked and embarrassed that I did it, it was naughty and I still can’t believe it – the photo is awful.’
