That devoted crustacean wasn't kidding when he told Ariel that the human world was a mess. But it doesn't mean you can't tie it up nicely in a braid and keep on keeping on.

A mother channeled The Little Mermaid as inspiration to style her youngest daughter Atlantis's hair to slay a "crazy hair day" contest at her school.

The four-year-old's older sister, Ariel, proudly posted a photo of the result that was no contest. Not only was Atlantis's fish tail braid green to mimic the mermaid's tail, but the incorporation of the ultimate prop was the icing on the cake, and the look is making waves on the internet.


Take a look at her hair-did.

"My sister had crazy hair day at school today and my mom was not playing games and really wanted her to win," Ariel wrote about her mom's sink-or-swim determination.

Ariel explained to Buzzfeed News how her mother, April Castillo, arrived at the winning look that took 25 minutes to achieve.

"My mom picked the hairstyle. She had seen people use a paper doll and wasn't really feeling it, so she went the extra mile and added a real-life doll."



So what inspired the Little Mermaid look? The answer lies in the fact that the seaweed is always greener on somebody else's head.

"My parents have always had quite an obsession with 'Under the Sea', so my sisters and I have always loved mermaids."



Ariel added that their dad, Miguel Castillo, had a huge role in completing the look.

"What no one has noticed is that the bra Ariel is wearing is homemade. My dad made it out of tape because she was a topless doll, but my mom couldn't let my sister go to school with a topless doll."

It's no surprise who swam their way to the top of the competition.






People were so impressed with April's mad skillz, they hoped for a tutorial to duplicate the look for themselves. Ask and you shall receive!

Stay tuned. A YouTube video is on its way soon.


Others shared their impressive "crazy hair" ideas.







Future moms were inspired to do great things. Just remember that when you come up dry for creativity, hope floats. Keep on swimming.



Crazy hair day is a thing, and the world is better for it.



Sometimes, the internet is a happy place.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
