A model has burst into tears and fainted after having almost half of her hair suddenly cut off on TV.

The woman appeared on a Turkish reality show called Kuaförüm Sensin, which roughly translates to “You’re My Hairdresser“.

In the show, hairdressers and stylists compete with each other to completely make over their contestants.

The hairdresser reportedly cut the model’s hair, but didn’t ask her how much she wanted cut off.

According to reports, the hairdresser took a massive 30cm off from her locks.

The new do was so shocking to the model that she ended up bursting into tears and fainted mere moments after realising what happened.
