How much do you have to trust a person to let them randomly cut your hair one night while sitting on a toilet and filming it for millions of people to watch? Probably quite a lot.
Well, Avril Lavigne seems to have total faith in novice hairdresser Yungblud, as the musician gave the punk star a pair of scissors and… he got to work.
Avril, 38, is known for her long locks and has been since she burst onto the music scene with her debut album, Let Go.
But, her famous tresses are no more, as 25-year-old Yungblud – real name Dominic Richard Harrison – went all Edward Scissorhands on them.
‘No!’, the Complicated hitmaker screamed in the clip uploaded to Instagram, demanding alcohol before the fellow singer made the chop.
‘I need a beer, I need a beer,’ added a concerned Avril.
But, there was little time for her to truly panic as, before long, a giggling Yungblud had cut off one side of her hair.
Snipping the other side, he added: ‘I’m going to cut it into a bob for you!’
Now, we should point out that Avril probably had extensions and the whole thing was most likely a stunt for their new song, I’m A Mess, which Avril referenced in the caption, but still, you would not catch us in this position.
Besides, Avril’s fiancé, Mod Sun – real name Derek Smith – was rather keen on her new look.
He wrote in the comments: ‘Haircut looks great! U did well @yungblud ✂️ new song maybe?’
She replied: ‘I can’t believe we did this to my hair hahah.’
Other fans were also living for the content, as one wrote: ‘I wanna see short haired Avril.😆😆🔥🔥’.
‘It looks amazing omg’, commented another, although something tells us Yungblud’s toilet salon won’t be getting five-star reviews anytime soon.
Avril later shared the single artwork for her collaboration with Yungblud, writing on social media: ‘I’m a Mess” with @yungblud out Thursday, November 3’.
With very little time to wait until the song is theirs to enjoy on repeat, the duo’s followers were sent into a frenzy with excitement.
‘Ay! I’m EXCITED for this!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🖤🖤🖤🖤 LETS GO! 🤘🏽’, commented one fan.
Another penned: ‘Super excited been waiting for this collection for so long 🖤’.
The very rock and roll artwork also does show Avril with short hair so, who knows, maybe she’s entering a new era…
