Everyone’s been the victim of a bad haircut – and even Shakira is not without it!
Taking a look back at some of her best (and worst) fashion and beauty moments, Shakira stumbled upon a moment she deemed particularly unhappy.
The photo came from MIDEM in 2012, where stars were honored by the French Ministry of Culture.
“Oh, this is terrible! It’s a really bad haircut, ”Shakira joked in Spanish.
And it turns out that Shakira’s mother-in-law is partly responsible for the hairstyle.
“I followed my mother-in-law’s advice. She said, ‘Hey, why don’t you cut your hair? They are really damaged, ”said Shakira.
She took the suggestion to heart and agreed, cutting off several inches of her hair – a move she called “the worst mistake of her life.”
But despite the poor choice, Shakira has fond memories of the rest of her event outfit, which was created by the late designer Azzedine Alaïa.
As for his mother-in-law? Shakira joked that she would never follow her cosmetic advice again!
