A bride-to-be has vented her fury at her mum who has refused to get her ‘terrible hair’ done for her wedding day.
Taking to parenting website Mumsnet yesterday, the anonymous bride shared her dilemma, saying she didn’t want to “sound mean.”
Writing under the handle ‘namechangedforthisaibu’ in the ‘Am I Being Unreasonable?’ section of the site, she wrote: “Just name changed for this as I don’t know what to think about it.

“My wedding is coming up and my mum planned to have her hair done and now she is saying she isn’t going to bother.
“She is saying because of covid and stuff she doesn’t want to be sat in the hairdressers too long.
“But she still goes shopping and does everything as normal.
“I don’t want to sound mean as I love my mum to bits and I do everything for her.
“But her hair looks terrible!
“It has thinned terribly at the back so she has a patch of skin with no hair on at the back.
“She still has her hair round the sides so she tries to pull it over the bald spot and puts it in a tiny bobble.
“Her hair is very very very short.
“I don’t want to look back at my wedding photos and my mum just doesn’t look good.

“I hope this doesn’t sound horrible I’m just trying to be honest.”
The bride-to-be’s post caught the attention of many fellow Mumsnet users, attracting 214 comments in just six hours.
It seems that fellow users had little sympathy for her plight, with many telling the bride-to-be to focus on enjoying her wedding with her mum rather than worrying about what she looks like.
One commented under the handle ‘minipie’ and wrote: “Poor woman.
“She probably doesn’t want to go to the hairdresser as she knows it’s not great and there isn’t much a hairdresser could do about it.
“I think not upsetting your mum about her hair is more important than your wedding photos tbh.”
Mumsnet user ‘ThursdayLastWeek’ was somewhat more blunt and simply said: “So what.”
Several contributors to the thread tried to offer the bride-to-be some practical solutions, including ‘Frymetothemoon’ who suggested: “I got married in a hotel and the hairdresser did my hair, my mother’s and my sister’s.

“Could the person doing yours do hers?”
A fourth user, ‘Singleorigincoffee’ wrote: “Sorry it does sound horrible.
“Be glad she’s there.”
At the time of writing, the bride-to-be seemed no closer to resolving her dilemma: whether she can convince her mum to get her hair done or wear a hat, or whether she will resign herself to having her current hairstyle at her wedding remains to be seen.
