Urban Legends


The Hairdo is an urban legend about a vain woman who styles her hair into a bun and never bothers to wash it. This story is also known as “The Fatal Hairdo” and “Spiders in the Hairdo”.


A few years ago, there was a middle-aged woman who was very vain and would always wear her hair up in a big bun. She was very proud of her hairdo and thought she was the most fashionable of all her friends. She had no idea that her hairstyle had gone out of fashion years before.

The woman was very lazy and didn’t like having to spend time cleaning and styling her hair. Instead, she just left her hair as it was and never took it down at all. In fact, she never even bothered to wash it. Whenever she took a shower, she would wear a shower cap to make sure the water didn’t mess up her hairstyle. At night, she would sleep with a towel wrapped around her hair to make sure nothing moved out of place.

After a while, her hair began to smell. To mask the odor, she just put hairspray on it. When her scalp started to feel itchy, she put more hairspray on it. Even though her head itched like crazy, all she did was apply more hairspray.

One morning, when she didn’t come down for breakfast, her husband went up to the bedroom to wake her up. To his horror, he discovered that his wife had died during the night.

At first, the police thought she must have had a heart attack in her sleep, because there wasn’t a mark on her body. However, when the coroner was conducting an autopsy, he couldn’t figure out what had killed her. Then, he examined her hair and found something horrendous.

A black window spider had made its nest in her hair and laid eggs. When the baby spiders hatched they had bitten through her skull and eaten into her brain.


  • Black window hahahahah. I know you meant widow but I’m lmao.

    Me: What killed her?
    Coroner: Well, I found a black window in her hair.
    Husband: What did it fall on her head?
    Coroner: Uhm… What? I’m gonna tell the story to my favorite horror website: The-
    Me: ScaryForKids?!
    Coroner: Close enough.
    Me: No it’s 100% better than the old trash you were gonna say.

  • @Silence Under The Moon

    i agree…vain people are usually stuck up and snobby, and are fashionable and everything… whereas here, she dont care at all

  • You would think that beacause she was vain, she would make sure her hair was clean and beautiful at all times. I guess not :p

  • i’m surprised the chick had a husband….no offense. it’s sick the chick never washed her hair.

  • @Captainshipwreck, @Demented Xandra and @Pete there is a very simaler story about a young girl who wanted to style her hair. She washed it in sugar water or something like that. And went to bed her hair still wet in a towl. The next morning her mother finds her dead and on closer inspection sees she’s been eaten alive by mice or rats. It would be easy to get the two mixed up as they are very simaler.

  • hey sfk did you mean widow spider or window spider?
    Im not sure I have heard of window spiders before. I know black widows though and I think it might be possible for them

  • after reading lots of stories on thus website i finally made an account im new everybody! :)

  • @Captainshipwreck, when has it ever been rats? I’ve only read one about maggots.
    Nice story btw

  • @ForeverRetarded It’s possible. I think they repost things from time to time.

    @DeathlyPRincess uh no it’s a classic urban legend but I’m not sure it’s possible though.

    @CaptainShipwreck When was it rats? EVery reason I’ve seen and that’s a lot it was spiders.

  • The legend is a little different here, it’s rats instead of spiders. I think spiders make it grosser. LOVE IT. More Urban legends for the win!

  • Oh god I thought I was lazy….. But is it just me or has anyone else already seen this story on SFK?
