Which is basically what happened to this teen whose father helped him cut off all of his long dreads—dreads which had not been cut for a total of nine years! The occurrence took place while the teen’s mother was out and she had absolutely no clue that her son was going to change one of the major features of himself. Her reaction? Priceless.

Luckily, the whole thing was caught on camera from the before shot, the cutting of the dreads, the end shot as well as the mother’s reaction.

As soon as she walks in the door, a camera is shoved in her face and she is stunned and almost speechless as to how different and strange her son looks without his dreads. She then persists to tell the person filming to put the camera away. Perhaps she needed a minute to let it all sink in?

Regardless, see the freaking cool transformation this teen makes in the video below and let us know your thoughts. Personally, I think he looks rather dapper after his haircut.
