I forked out £12 for a 70s-inspired wig… it was a fail, people say I look like a famous character from a musical | The Sun

A SHOPPER was left in hysterics after her new 70s-inspired flick wig left her looking like a character from a musical.

Emily Silver, from London, the UK, took to TikTok to share the epic fail after her shopping haul ended up a major disaster.

According to the talented singer and songwriter, she had spotted a blonde flick wig at a store and decided to snap up the £12.50 buy.

The packaging, the video showed, promised a lot of volume, as well heaps of layers of light hair, inspired by the 70s' trends.

However, after putting it on, Emily, unfortunately, came to discover to wig didn't look anything like the advertisement photo on the box.

Unlike the model, who looked glam, the shopper's wig arrived a totally different colour, having a more ginger tone to it.

Not only was the hue completely off, the style also didn't match Emily's expectations, as the wig was shorter and lacking the volume promised.

Luckily, it seemed that Emily wasn't overly fussed, as she laughed in stitches in the video – and so did the viewers.

Since being uploaded on the social media platform, the clip has racked up over a whopping 900k views in just one day.

As over 9000 people gave the video a like, dozens raced to comments in sheer hysterics.

One person said: ''I haven’t laughed so much for ages.''

''I'm crying,'' someone else couldn't get over the hair-rific disaster.


''I knew it was gonna be bad but dayum,'' a person penned.

''The Hedwig look,'' an eagle-eyed viewer reckoned she looked like a character from Hedwig and the Angry Inch musical.

Sadly, Emily is not the only one to have suffered a major shopping fail – one Shein fan, mum Brittini Rae, was left looking like a Christmas tree in her new green set.

Looking to replenish her wardrobe on the cheap, the parent had a look on Shein when she stumbled across a cosy lounge set in khaki.

The set – shorts and a long-sleeve top – was on sale, retailing for just under £15.

The bargain buy was too good to miss, and the mum immediately bagged the items without even checking the reviews.

But upon trying them on, the initial excitement disappeared in seconds, as the bottoms were longer than expected and the top was not much more flattering either.

''I look like a Christmas tree,'' Brittini quickly noted uploading a clip of the unsuccessful try-on haul.
