  • An Ohio teen named Kelsey turned 13 and to celebrate, she asked her mother if she could get some blonde highlights.
  • Her mother, Christin Johnson, agreed. The mother-daughter duo headed off to the salon and after a day of pampering, Kelsey was thrilled with her long, freshly highlighted hair.
  • In a post-makeover picture that Christin posted to Facebook, Kelsey can be seen proudly smiling for the camera.
  • Christin then dropped Kelsey off with her dad and stepmother bBut the birthday girl was returned to Christin looking drastically different than when she dropped her off.

This is Christin Johnson, a working Mom from Ohio.

Her daughter Kelsey turned 13 years old in January 2018 and to celebrate her official status as a teenager, Kelsey wished for a fresh new look.

She asked her Mother if she could get some blonde highlights in her long dark brown hair. The request  seemed innocent enough.

Christin agreed to Kelsey’s birthday wish and took her to the salon. Kelsey was smiling after her hair appointment and proudly showed off her brand new head of highlights for the camera.

Christin later dropped Kelsey off to spend a couple days with her father and stepmother.

But her teenage daughter returned looking drastically differently than when she dropped her off.

Kelsey had yet gotten yet another haircut — but this one was completely unwanted.

Completely horrified, Christin shared the latest photos of Kelsey’s on her Facebook page, along with a troubling caption:

“This is what my daughter looked like Sunday when I took her home and the other two pics is what happened today before she was brought to me… all over me having highlights put in her hair for her birthday!”

Kelsey’s long highlighted hair had been chopped off. Instead, she had a short pixie cut with choppy shaved sides.

The father and stepmother reportedly cut off her hair as punishment for getting the highlights. “Actions have consequences,” they told her.

In one of the photos taken by Christin, Kelsey was so upset and completely humiliated she refused to show her face.

Christin’s story sparked national outrage, and countless readers are appalled over the father’s decision to cut Kelsey’s hair in an effort to punish and/or humiliate her.

Some people suggest that a good solution would be for Kelsey to get hair extensions, but Christin says that she’s convinced her dad would simply cut them out.

Though some readers maintain there are two sides to every story, it seems the tables have turned; Kelsey’s father and stepmother are now facing consequences of their own.

Wood County Job and Family Services have started an investigation and the couple, who both work as firefighters, have apparently been suspended and put on administrative leave.

Christin, desperate to make Kelsey feel better, took her to Lady Jane’s salon.

There, the kindhearted staff fitted the teen with the wig of her choice.

“I’d like to thank the ladies … for making my baby feel more like herself!

We truly appreciate you ladies so much!”

It’s very upsetting to think Kelsey’s simple birthday wish turned into such an unexpected nightmare.

We’re glad to see that Kelsey has gotten her smile back.
