But despite the trend going global, many social media users aren’t convinced it’s a good look.

TikTok user who goes by @celestefohl mocked the hairdo likening it to TV mum Carol Brady from The Brady Bunch, as they wrote: “The new jellyfish haircut.

“I like it, it’s pretty cool but I’ve definitely seen it on someone before and that person was Carol Brady.”

Another quipped: “This is how people look when they do their own hair extensions.”

A third said: “It was also me back in 2011 when I messed up a scene haircut and got bullied for it.”

“No. Imagine how is grows out,” a fourth commented.

A hairdresser even chimed in to slam the trim, adding: “I used to cut this haircut for a lady back when I was in hair school in 06. She always called it ‘two layers’ and I hated it.”

But not everyone hated it as some users claimed it was ‘cute’ and said they wanted it themselves.
