Many of us have battled beauty disasters during lockdown.
Without our hairdressers and beauticians to help, we’ve been trying our hand at DIY treatments.
And this doesn’t always go to plan – as shown by an unfortunate lass who tried to dye her locks black at home.
A Reddit user revealed how she was left looking like “Barney the Dinosaur” when the hair colour stained her skin.
She revealed: “Today I f***ed up by accidentally dying my entire body purple.
“I decided to dye my hair black with a semi-permanent dye I bought. Black dye is presumably made up of very dark blue and purple shades.”
She continued: “Anyways, everything was going fine until I went to take a shower and rinse it out.
“The dye ran all over my entire body, and unlike previous dyes I’ve used it dyed my skin.
“I spent 30 min in the shower trying to get it off, but I couldn’t so I am now purple until it comes out or I figure something out.
“A few of my friends who dye their hair often have had similar experiences and seem to think I should be able to get it out tomorrow, which I’m really hoping for because I have work.
“To make matters worse I don’t even like the hair colour and even though it’s supposed to be semi-permanent I’m not that hopeful it’ll ever fully go back to the shade it was before, so it wasn’t even worth it at all.”
Alongside the confession, the anonymous woman showed how her hand has turned a vibrant shade of violet.
Redditors couldn’t resist having a giggle at the blunder though.
According to the Mirror, one wrote: “So kinda like Barney.”

And others referenced character Violet Beauregarde from the book Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, who turned into a giant blueberry.
One joked: “Violet! You’re turning violet, Violet!”
And another laughed: “Wow, that’s an intense shade of purple. Maybe Willie Wonka has a temporary job opening.”
