I had the viral money piece highlights for two years & was obsessed.. Turns out they were the biggest mistake of my life | The Sun

A BEAUTY fan has revealed the dire consequences of rocking the so-called money piece highlights for several years on end.

But despite being totally obsessed with the ''bleach blonde'' look, which she had for close to three years, Niamh's journey ended with dried locks that also snapped off.

The young woman took to TikTok to reveal the hair-rific aftermath to her 3.9k followers – and we're just as moritifed.

''I just did the roots, probably was some overlapping over the years.

''The last time I had it done was a different brand of bleach, I think that's why,'' the young stunner guessed.

Seeing the state of Niamh's locks, fellow beauty lovers flocked to comments, where one wrote: ''Mine is getting thinner but just trying to ignore…''
