Uh, I Meant To Do That? 10 Beauty Tutorials Gone Hilariously Wrong

image

There are millions of beauty tutorials on the web; most of them both useful and benign, and not particularly exciting. These are not those videos.

These are the videos where things didn’t go exactly as planned, resulting in hilariously awkward moments, some very bad haircuts… and in one case, a small but easily-contained fire. Oops. These moments can’t help but make everyone involved laugh. After all, we’re not all cut out to be hair stylists or aestheticians; some of us should just pony up the cash and pay for a professional to manage our “look.”

So if you’re looking for helpful beauty advice, look elsewhere; but if you’re looking to laugh, check out these top 10 funny beauty tutorial fails. We can’t promise you’ll learn anything particularly useful – except for maybe what not to do when attempting a DIY home salon service – but maybe that’s lesson enough. Don’t try these at home, kids!

EPIC FAIL!!!! Glue On My Eyebrows!

Via YouTube/Theresa SayWhat.

Beauty vlogger Theresa SayWhat learned a valuable lesson in this funny video: Don’t put glue in your eyebrows.

(Hm…. This seems like something that is pretty self-explanatory, but what do we know.)

She was attempting to use Elmer’s Glue (!!) to remove blackheads and facial hair, so she smeared a healthy dose of the sticky white glue all over her face… including all over her eyebrows. Watch as she finds out why that’s a terrible idea right here on YouTube.

Burning My Hair Off -ORIGINAL VIDEO- (Hair Tutorial Gone Wrong)

Via YouTube/Tori Locklear.

This video has become a classic YouTube moment! YouTuber Tori Locklear was demonstrating how to straighten hair using a blazing-hot flat iron. In retrospect, maybe that flat iron was a little TOO hot, because before you can say, “Sizzler” she had burned a chunk of her hair clean off.

Hair Tutorial Gone Wrong (Must Watch) Black Girl Version

Via YouTube/Brittany Mirabilé TV.

Not to be outdone, Brittany Mirabilé TV uploaded this clip of herself having a similarly singe-worthy experience with her flat iron, but her reaction to the mistake is downright legendary. You know that expression “Keep Calm and Carry On?” Well, Brittany pretty much does the opposite of that.

Cutting all my hair off! | The biggest FAIL of 2015

Via YouTube/The Rainbowish Panda.

Vlogger The Rainbowish Panda cut off the majority of her lovely blond locks so she could donate the hair to make wigs for cancer patients. She decided to do the hack job herself using the pony tail method, but the resulting look was more “Sir Lancelot” than “cute bob.” She’s so good-natured about it, you can’t help but laugh along with her in spite of the hilariously bad result!

Watch it here on YouTube.

This is WHY you SHOULD NOT CUT YOUR OWN HAIR

Via YouTube/Funny Cute World.

Another instant YouTube classic, this girl decides to cut her own bangs using some crazy triangle method that clearly does NOT work. The result looks so outrageously wrong that she instantly bursts into giggles when she sees what she has done to herself, and we can’t help but giggle too.

Charcoal Face Mask Gone Wrong OFFICIAL

Via YouTube/Tiff and Cari.

Vloggers Tiff and Cari uploaded this video of Tiff trying out a new charcoal face mask that promises to make your skin glow, remove impurities, yadda yadda yadda. Instead, the mask adhered so strongly to Tiff’s face that removing it became akin to ripping off a Band-Aid, if the Band-Aid was covering your entire face. Ouch!

The only thing more painful about this video is the vertical filming. Why vertical filming, Tiff and Cari? WHY?

Funny ponytail tutorial

Via YouTube/Crystal Harding.

All she wanted was a cute summer hairdo! Instead she ended up giving herself an Olive Oil pony tail. The best part of this video is the faces she makes at the end!

Tutorial| BLEACHING GONE WRONG ON **NATURAL HAIR**

Via YouTube/Jasmine Long.

YouTuber Jasmine Long unwittingly became a “don’t” while demonstrating how to bleach your hair. Instead of trashing the video she decided to make it a teachable moment to spare others from making the same bleach faux pas. As she puts it:

This video was uploaded SPECIFICALLY to show you guys what I did wrong in my bleaching process. I had intended on showing you guys the steps I take to bleach my hair and color it, but with my lack of knowledge lead to this video. I hope you all enjoy and find this video useful in some way.

Hair Tutorial GONE WRONG FAIL

Here’s a quick reminder that it’s always a good idea to keep a fire extinguisher around when using a hot hair appliance. Don’t worry – no one was hurt in the making of this video!

Mask peeling gone wrong- Crystal Fox

Via YouTube.

All she wanted was clear skin, so she picked up a cheap-o facial mask at her local Walmart and decided to film herself removing it. Next thing you know, she looks like she’s peeling her skin off in big chunks like some kind of snake shedding its skin. Ewwww!

BONUS VIDEO! Everyday Makeup Tutorial

Via YouTube/Tanya Hennessy.

Australian comedian Tanya Hennessy made this beauty tutorial spoof of herself sloppily applying her “everyday makeup.” Even though this video is a parody, for the majority of daily makeup wearers, it is so, so real!

Why Do People Believe Conspiracy Theories?

image

A Misunderstanding of the Law of Probability

Getty Images

Whenever any semi-important person in Washington, D.C. dies young, there is inevitably speculation on the far fringes that he was “targeted” for “knowing too much,” or that the details of his demise were eerily similar to what happened to that other guy a few years ago, you remember, the one with the hat? The fact is, of course, that people die all the time, even relatively young people who seemed relatively healthy at the time, and in a city as big as Washington reason dictates that there will be many such deaths each year, each of which is completely unrelated to the others. This type of conspiracy theory has existed for as long as civilization has, and can be chalked up to ignorance of actuarial tables and the laws of probability. One amusing example from a hundred years ago is the supposed “curse” of King Tut’s Tomb; whenever anyone died, of natural causes or otherwise, associated with that expedition, conspiracy theorists invoked the supernatural malice of mummies.

How to Replace the Charcoal Canister

image

What is the Charcoal Canister?

Evaporative Emissions Occur Most Commonly During Refueling, but the Charcoal Canister Eliminates Much of It.
http://www.gettyimages.com/license/668193284

The charcoal canister is a sealed container filled with “activated carbon,” or “activated charcoal.” Activated carbon is processed to give it an incredibly disproportionate surface area for its size – it’s basically a sponge for absorbing fuel vapors. Depending on how it’s prepared, a single gram of activated charcoal can have a surface area of between 500 m2 and 1,500 m2 (5,400 ft2 to 16,000 ft2). (For comparison, a dollar bill weighs about a gram and only has a surface area of 0.01 m2 or 0.11 ft2).

To prevent HC emissions escaping into the atmosphere, valves control air flow through the charcoal canister. While refueling, the canister vent valve opens, allowing air and fuel vapors to flow through the canister to the atmosphere. The activated carbon strips the air of fuel vapors. After refueling, the canister vent valve closes, sealing the system.

Under certain operating conditions, such as low-load highway cruising, the ECM will command the canister purge and vent valves to open. As the engine pulls air through the charcoal canister, fuel vapors burned in the engine. As a result, harmful HC emissions are significantly reduced, to be replaced by harmless carbon dioxide and water (CO2 and H2O) vapor in the exhaust.

That’s Gotta Hurt! 20 Funny Pool Fails That Are Painful In Every Way

image

Putting The Flop In Belly Flop

Via Giphy/America’s Funniest Home Videos.

Summertime is upon us, and that means it’s time to lotion up and hit the pool! Wait… maybe we shouldn’t put it quite that way. We don’t advise that you actually hit the pool, because you might get hurt. Nobody wants to see you get hurt!

Too bad nobody told the people in these gifs that they shouldn’t literally hit the pool. All of these folks were just enjoying some fun in the sun when they made a pretty awkward miscalculation and wound up falling flat on their faces (or their backs, in some cases). While it may be funny for those of us who are observing these fails safely behind our computer screens, we can only imagine how much these foibles must have HURT! And we’re not just talking about their pride, which was definitely wounded as well; we’re talking about their poor, battered bodies! 

Rest assured that we didn’t include any GIFs in this gallery that showed people getting badly injured. They’re out there, yes; but they’re just not funny. These GIFs, however… now these are funny. Nobody got badly hurt, and they all lived to screw up another day.

Coming Up Aces at the US Open: Every Hole-in-One in Tournament History

image

There have been 44 U.S. Open aces in the history of this major championship, which goes back to 1895. That means a hole-in-one happens in, roughly, a third of U.S. Opens played.

Every one of those aces is listed below. But before we get there, let’s dig into the names and numbers a little bit and see what nuggets of trivia we can uncover.

Who Made the First US Open Ace?

Jack Hobens is little-known today, but his name will forever be in the golf history books: He made the first known U.S. Open ace.

A Scotsman by birth, Hobens entered the 1899 British Open, then emigrated to the United States in 1900 and took a club job in New Jersey.

Hobens entered the U.S. Open several times, and finished as high as fourth (in both 1907 and 1909). And it was in the 1907 U.S. Open that he holed out on the 147-yard 10th hole at Philadelphia Cricket Club during the second round. The first known hole-in-one at the U.S. Open.

Hobens later was part of an organizing committee that helped in the formation of the PGA of America.

Has Any Golfer Scored More Than One US Open Ace?

Yes, there is one golfer with two holes-in-one during the U.S. Open: Tom Weiskopf. Weiskopf scored an ace at the 1978 Open, then got another one in 1982.

Amateur Aces at the US Open

Dick Chapman in 1950, Billy Kuntz in 1956 and Spencer Levin in 2004 all notched U.S. Open holes-in-one playing the tournament as amtaeurs.

Does the name Dick Chapman mean anything to you?

If you’re a student of golf history, it does. Chapman was a winner of the U.S. Amateur and British Amateur championships and played The Masters 19 times.

He also invented the golf format that we call Chapman System or Pinehurst System today.

Father-and-Son Holes-in-One

Yes, a father-and-son pair of golfers both made holes-in-one during U.S. Open play.

And the dad is a hall-of-famer.

In 1982, Johnny Miller made an ace at Pebble Beach. Twenty years later, at Bethpage Black, Andy Miller added the family’s second U.S. Open ace.

Longest and Shortest US Open Aces

The shortest hole-in-one recorded at the USGA’s national open was 108 yards. Todd Fischer got it in 2000. And the longest: the 229-yard hole-out by Shawn Stefani in 2013.

(Note that yardage is not available for all the aces listed below.)

Four Holes-in-One in the Same Day

Not only did four golfers ace the same hole on the same day at the 1989 U.S. Open, they all used the same club … and the aces all happened within two hours of each other. Between 8:15 a.m. and 10:15 a.m., on Oak Hill Country Club’s No. 6 hole, Drew Weaver, Mark Weibe, Jerry Pate and Nick Price all holed out for 1s.

All four golfers used a 7-iron on the downhill, 159-yard hole. Not only did the feat establish a tournament record for most aces in one round, but also for most aces in a single U.S. Open. And that record still stands. (Today, there is a plaque commemorating the event on the teeing ground.)

Has An Acer Ever Gone On to Win the Tournament?

No. A handful of U.S. Open champions have made a hole-in-one in the Open, but not in the year they won the tournament.

No golfer has yet scored an aced during a U.S. Open and gone on to win that same tournament.

Meet the Only ‘Terrible’ Golfer Who Made it into the Hall of Fame

image

Golfer Tommy Bolt was known for a sweet swing and a not-so-sweet temper. But he always put on a good show for the customers.

His years as a PGA Tour winner were mostly in the 1950s and included one U.S. Open victory. Later, Bolt was involved in an event that helped launch the Champions Tour.

  • Date of birth: March 31, 1916
  • Place of birth: Haworth, Oklahoma
  • Date of death: Aug. 30, 2008
  • Nickname: “Terrible Tommy” because of his on-course temper. Sometimes called “Thunder” (and in thunderbolt)  for the same reason.

Number of Wins By Tommy Bolt

  • PGA Tour: 15
  • Major Championships: 1

(Bolt’s victories are listed below.)

Awards and Honors for Tommy Bolt

Biography of Tommy Bolt

Tommy Bolt started his PGA Tour career relatively late, but won enough—and generated enough attention for himself—that he was eventually voted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. More than for his game, however, Bolt was known for his showmanship and his temper – a temper that earned him the nicknames “Terrible Tommy” and “Thunder Bolt.”

Bolt was a regular thrower of clubs on the course. In later years, Bolt seemed to regret being known for a club-throwing temper; during his career, though, he often played it up.

“I launched far more (clubs) because they expected me to than I did because I was mad at anything that had gone wrong with my golf,” Bolt is quoted as saying by the World Golf Hall of Fame.

After a while, it became showmanship, plain and simple.

Despite the temper and tantrums, and occasional blowups that cost him more wins, Bolt was respected by his peers as one of the best ballstrikers they’d ever seen.

Bolt got into golf as a caddie at age 13. Al Espinosa, who lost a playoff to Bobby Jones at the 1929 U.S. Open, visited the club where Bolt caddied.

Bolt was so impressed by Espinosa’s dress and manner that he resolved to become a professional golfer himself.

Slow Start in Pro Golf

That dream was delayed often, however. Bolt spent four years in the U.S. Army during World War II (in 1945 serving as head pro at a club in liberated Rome).

Then he alternated between pro golf and construction work.

He finally joined the PGA Tour full-time at age 32. His first victory came quickly at the 1951 North & South Open Championship. Bolt won three times each in 1954 and 1955, then a severe hook started popping into his game. Bolt spent an offseason practicing with Ben Hogan, who changed Bolt’s grip and helped cure the hook.

Bolt Wins the 1958 US Open

Then, at age 40, Bolt won the 1958 U.S. Open at Southern Hills in Oklahoma.

Bolt held a 1-stroke lead after 36 holes over 22-year-old Gary Player, who was playing the U.S. Open for the first time. Following a 69 in the third round, Bolt stretched his lead over second place (Gene Littler, this time) to three strokes.

Bolt closed with a 72 and won by four over runner-up Player. It was the first-ever major championship played at Southern Hills, and a native Oklahoman won it.

Helping Launch the Senior Tour

Bolt began cutting back on his tour play after winning the U.S. Open, and his final PGA Tour victory was in 1961.

He went on to win the 1969 PGA Seniors Championship, and played a key role in the creation of the Senior PGA Tour.

In 1979, Bolt paired with Art Wall in the first Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf, where the two lost a six-hole playoff for the title to Julius Boros and Roberto De Vicenzo. The next year, Bolt and Wall won the tournament.

That event got such good television ratings that it convinced PGA Tour commissioner Deane Beman to support the creation of a tour for senior golfers, and the Senior Tour – what we now call the Champions Tour – was launched.

Bolt was voted into the World Golf Hall of Fame by the veterans committee in 2002.

Tommy Bolt Trivia

  • As far as we know, Bolt is the only professional golfer … ever … to be fined for flatulence.
  • Bolt was the fifth golfer in PGA Tour history to score a round of 60. He did it at the 1954 Insurance City Open. And after opening 64-62 at the 1954 Virginia Beach Open, Bolt for a time held the tour’s 36-hole scoring record.

Quote, Unquote

Some of Tommy Bolt’s best quotes are related to his temper and his habit of throwing golf clubs, such as:

  • “Always throw clubs ahead of you, that way you won’t waste any energy going back to pick them up.”
  • “Never break your driver and putter in the same round.”
  • “I know you can be fined for throwing a club, but I want to know if you can get fined for throwing a caddie.”

A few of Bolt’s other sayings:

  • “In golf, driving is a game of free-swinging muscle control, while putting is something like performing eye surgery and using a bread knife for a scalpel.”
  • “The mind messes up more shots than the body.”
  • “There is no better game in the world when you are in good company, and no worse game when you are in bad company.”

And a couple of observations about Bolt by his fellow-competitors:

  • Jimmy Demaret: “Bolt’s putter has spent more time in the air than Lindbergh.”
  • Ben Hogan: “If we could’ve screwed another head on his shoulders, Tommy Bolt could have been the greatest who ever played.”

Baroque Buildings From the Age of Enlightenment

image

Schloss Moritzburg In Saxony, Germany. Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images News/Getty Images (cropped)

Like the Palace of Versailles in France, Moritzburg Castle in Germany started off as a hunting lodge and has a complicated and turbulent history. In 1723, Augustus the Strong of Saxony and Poland expanded and remodeled the property to what today is called Saxon Baroque. The area is also known for a type of delicately sculpted china called Meissen porcelain.

In Germany, Austria, Eastern Europe, and Russia, Baroque ideas were often applied with a lighter touch. Pale colors and curving shell shapes gave buildings the delicate appearance of a frosted cake. The term Rococo was used to describe these softer versions of the Baroque style. Perhaps the ultimate in German Bavarian Rococo is the 1754 Pilgrimage Church of Wies (view image) designed and built by Dominikus Zimmermann.

“The lively colours of the paintings bring out the sculpted detail and, in the upper areas, the frescoes and stuccowork interpenetrate to produce a light and living decor of unprecedented richness and refinement,” states the UNESCO World Heritage site about the Pilgrimage Church. “The ceilings painted in trompe-l’œil appear to open to an iridescent sky, across which, angels fly, contributing to the overall lightness of the church as a whole.”

So how does Rococo differ from Baroque?

“The characteristics of baroque,” says Fowler’s Dictionary of Modern English Usage, “are grandeur, pomposity, and weight; those of rococo are inconsequence, grace, and lightness. Baroque aims at astounding, rococo at amusing.”

And so we are.

5 Movie Directors Who Cast Their Daughters

image

Sofia Coppola and Francis Ford Coppola

Paramount Pictures

Director Francis Ford Coppola has a long history of working with family members, and his daughter is no exception. Though nowadays Sofia Coppola is recognized as a director and Oscar-winning screenwriter in her own right, in her earlier years she was better known as an actress. She actually debuted on film as an infant in her father’s masterpiece The Godfather playing the baby Michael Rizzi in the iconic Christening scene. She also appeared in minor roles in her father’s The Godfather Part II, The Outsiders, Rumble Fish, The Cotton Club, Peggy Sue Got Married, and Tucker: The Man and His Dream, often credited as “Domino.”

Unfortunately, the most significant acting role in Sofia’s career – playing Mary Corleone in her father’s The Godfather Part III (1990) – is also her most derided performance (Sofia was cast in part because Wionna Ryder dropped out of the role very late). Sofia has since concentrated on working behind the camera instead, like her father. Francis later produced his daughter’s debut film as a director, The Virgin Suicides (1999), and served as an executive producer on her films Lost in Translation (2003), Marie Antoinette (2006), Somewhere (2010), and The Bling Ring (2013). Not only that, but Francis, who also owns a winery, named a champagne after his daughter.

In an interesting bit of trivia, the Coppolas and the Hustons are the the only families with three generations of Oscar winners (Francis’ father, Carmine, won an Oscar for scoring The Godfather Part II).
