This Woman Tried To Curl Her Hair Using Cheetos And...Actually Succeeded

If you can dream it, you can do it.

A YouTuber by the name of Bunny Meyer (grav3yardgirl) has managed to gain quite a following by taking an absurd, guerilla approach to DIY beauty projects, and while she does waste some perfectly good snack food in this recent video, she also manages to impress by curling her hair using nothing but Cheetos, bobby pins, and...a lot of enthusiasm.

Here’s the video in its entirety followed by a step-by-step breakdown of the process.

Using damp hair and the help of bobby pins (since Cheetos just aren’t as adhesive as standard curlers), Bunny gets to work.

(As you’ll see, there’s nothing here that’s very different from the normal process of curling your hair, save for the snack food on your head.)

It takes about 45 minutes to get the job done, since this isn’t the intended use for the product, but once it’s done it looks like a headful of bright orange curlers.

Then, you move right on in to the application of heat to get the hair to curl. The smell must be nothing short of enchanting.

Out comes the first curler and…

Success? I wouldn’t have bet on that. As she continues to remove them, it becomes clear that this...sort of works.

Of course, it’s not without its drawbacks, namely that you’re ready for a night out on the town while covered in orange Cheeto dust, but that’s the cost of doing business here.

Lest you think this sort of thing is a departure for Bunny Meyer, here she is. Doing the exact same thing. Only with marhsmallows.

This goes about as well as you’d think. Especially once the marshmallows are heated.

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
