A mum was left horrified when she discovered her daughter had cut off her long blonde hair, leaving behind a mullet-style hair do.

Serena Rose was completely shocked after her four-year-old daughter Alexis got hold of a pair of scissors transformed her long blonde locks into a chaotic cut in a matter of minutes.

The 28-year-old, from Drenthe, Netherlands, had sent her little one off to her grandparent's house for a sleepover back but was devastated when she returned looking completely different.

Serena said Alexis was only left alone for a few minutes when the horror haircut occurred. With very few options, she decided to shave off her daughter's hair completely in order to get rid of the mullet.

Serena, who works at a zoo, said: "I'd just sent Alexis off to her grandparent's house for the night for a sleepover.

"The next morning, I got a call from them telling me that she had managed to cut all of her hair off.

"I thought they were joking. But then I realised they weren't, and it was really happening.

"Apparently she had got a hold of a pair of scissors and just went crazy. It all happened in a matter of minutes.

"There was blonde hair all over the house. They were shocked.

"At first, I thought it was funny, but then I was mad as she knows better than to do that. Then I felt heartbroken as we had been growing her hair for so long.

"You can't help but laugh though at the mullet. It's quite a unique look."

Serena thinks the youngster may have gotten the idea after watching her mother getting her hair cut at the salon earlier that week.

And while she has gotten used to her daughter's new hairdo, the mum said it 'still stings' when she sees an old photograph of Alexis's long blonde hair.

She said: "She had been sitting with me when I got my hair cut a few days beforehand, and I think she just wanted to play hairdresser too.

"She was really upset when it happened and instantly regretted it. But we try and style her new short hair with hairbands and things like that.

"I get quite sad when I see old pictures of her long hair, it was just so beautiful. It still stings.

"I hope she has learnt a lesson from what happened and will not be doing anything like that again.

"Of course, I still tell her she is beautiful no matter what she looks like. I just don't think she suits a mullet."
