A hairstylist has revealed she can tell a lot about mums and their parenting style by how they act when their kids go for their hair

A hairstylist has revealed she can tell a lot about mums and their parenting style by how they act when their kids go for their haircut.

The stylist, Sarah, posted a series of videos on TikTok highlighting the “different types” of moms who walk through her doors.

From tired moms to helicopter parents and those with extremely high expectations, the hairstylist who posts under “kissmeormissme” seems to have worked them all.

The three-part series begins with the tired mom saying, “Cut it all off, I don’t care,” half-yawn.

The show’s next mom, the one with “unrealistic expectations,” couldn’t be more different.

They often start dates by saying “he’s only two, so we don’t need anything too crazy” to make a long list of requests.

“But I was thinking of a melted, high, tight zero with a hard part here.

“And I want everything to be perfectly blended and look amazing without any product.”

The third mum is the helicopter mum who gets in the way of the salon staff as they have to stay inches away from their child at all times.

But it’s the fourth mum that terrifies the stylist the most – the “quiet but intimidating” mum.

The woman does her best impression of the “scary” mom by crossing her arms and looking in the direction of her child.

When asked if she would be “more comfortable” sitting elsewhere, she simply replied, “I’m fine here and keep watching me from afar.”

The next mom causes chaos by bringing all of her kids to the living room, letting them go wild, while one of them gets a new task.

She hops on the phone to show this mom lazily chatting with her friends instead of making sure her kids are well behaved.

“Jimmy needs a haircut, but I thought I’d bring all three so I wouldn’t have to hire a babysitter,” she says on the phone as her children scream in the living room.

Other people identified in the series include the “thrifty mom” who tries to pretend her teenagers qualify for the kids’ cup to save $20 and the shopaholic who buys all the goods.

The ‘menacing mum’ also makes an appearance – warning her child not to move or risk having his ear cut off.

The controlling mom who rejects all haircut ideas, including bangs or teenage bobs, because she likes their hair a certain way.

And the videos seemed to resonate with parents on the video-sharing platform – many of whom admitted to being one of the ‘guys’ portrayed.

“I’m kind of quiet and intimidating, but that’s only because I suffer from social anxiety,” said one mum.

The professionals said the descriptions gave them “flashbacks” to their years of working with children and their parents.

“It’s all too real, I loved the few parents who just sat on their phone and let me do my thing.”

Sarah has 20 million likes on the platform where she describes moments in time in her living room, including the chaos before big events and the interesting people who walk through her door.
