Hey, every budding hairstylist has to start somewhere. And in the case of 3-year-old Ansleigh, you have to start young. The teary-eyed toddler explained that she was "just practicing" cutting hair, which is why she ended up with a messy mullet.


Her father Chad Clark posted a video of the little girl explaining her hair cut decision on Facebook and it quickly went viral. He made her promise not to cut her hair again, at least for a little while.

"Your hair will grow again," he reassures her. "You better not cut it again when you're little... we'll get you some scissors when you get bigger."

Ansleigh did the snip slip when she was supposed to be having "quiet time" in her room. Her father said she must have found the scissors while searching through some boxes in the hallway.

"I happened to be walking by and heard a quick movement come from her bed, the kind of sound you hear when your child is doing something she knows she shouldn't be doing," Clark told TODAY.com.

In the end, Ansleigh got her hair fixed by a family friend with hairdressing experience, and all was well. No more "practicing" for now.
