The women in this video know the very real pain of having a mother consistently disappointed with your hairstyle. It's a very real thing every daughter understands—your mother is 100 percent sure that if you just let her give you a better hairstyle, you'd look a million times better, win the Miss America pageant, be elected president, marry Ryan Gosling, and be crowned Queen of All Known Galaxies.
So BuzzFeed finally put this to the test and let a group of moms choose their daughters' new hairdos. The mothers were thrilled with the results (you can just hear the "See, I told you I was right" chorus). As for the daughters? Well, let's just say the reactions were â€‹interesting.
"I feel like an I Love Lucy character," says one daughter.
"Ew," simply notes another, calling her hairdo a Miss Universe style from the '70s.
OK, so maybe the results aren't totally perfect, but hey, at least your mom is happy! That's always a win in my book.
