WITH the UK in the midst of another lockdown it means no more fake lashes, acrylic nails or hair extensions for the time being.
But if you’re one of the unlucky people who got caught between lockdowns with a full set of falsies or head of synthetic hair, you’re probably facing the daunting job of removing them yourself.
And that’s exactly what happened to Sophie Flack, who was rocking a full set of blonde extensions when the UK was placed into another lockdown.
With no chance of getting them professionally removed in the near future, the 22-year-old took matters into her own hands – and grabbed her dad’s tools.
She picked up a pair of pliers and painstakingly removed the blonde locks, sharing the excruciating process online.
Sophie uploaded a clip to TikTok, vowing ‘never again’, as she grimaced in pain while attacking her head with the tools.
She said: “I decided to take my extensions out as we’re in a full blown lockdown.
“Yes these are my dad’s tools."
Sophie said she was ‘frustrated’ and having a ‘mental breakdown’ as she reached the half-way point.
She said: “Oh no is my hair meant to come out like that?
“The right side was so much harder. RIP my hair.”
Sophie shared the end result, admitted she ‘misses it already’.
“I will now be wearing my hair up all the time,” she added.
Thousands of people have watched Sophie’s DIY job, praising her resourcefulness.
One person asked: “Omg I pay £60 a time to get mine taken out. How did you do this girl.”
Someone else wrote: “Thank you for this now I will not be getting extensions.”
A third admitted: “I’m doing mine later just waiting for the pliers. Is it hard?!”
This woman revealed: “Gurl I literally had 210 EXTENSIONS STRANDS in my hair. It took me soo long to get them out and now I regret it.”
While someone else added: “My extensions are crying rn [right now]. I’m thinking of doing this tomorrow I’m gonna have to they're on their last legs.”
