6-year-old accidentally shaves his entire head after mistaking a razor for a comb

All Mom can do is laugh—and keep on filming.

We’ve been there before: at a young age, for whatever reason, we decide to do something about our own hair instead of waiting for a professional to take care of it—ultimately ending in disaster. But this time around, that hairy situation is a result of mistaken identity (of grooming tools).

This 6-year-old thought that the electric razor in the bathroom was actually a comb, and by the time his parents discover him, he’s done a pretty good job at “combing” his hair. He could easily go for Lex Luthor if he keeps the length until next Halloween. The mom, who starts filming instead of taking the razor away from him, casually starts talking to him about it. Good on her for not freaking out (and possibly upsetting him).

He’s damn proud of his work and won’t take any offers for someone else to finish the job, at least until someone takes the razor from him.

He’s not yet at the point of regret where he blames Mom for the whole thing, but that could always change. And he and any possible siblings he has are going to hear about it for the rest of their lives during the holidays—or be forced to watch the footage.
