“My mom was told to give me a half up half down hairstyle. She didnt know what that meant so she did this..,” she wrote.
As you can see, De Castro’s mom styled her hair literally half-up and half-down — but with her hair sectioned in a single-sided pigtail, and the remainder left loose.
Naturally, the internet had a field day, with some sharing their own funny memories.
