I got a new haircut, now I look exactly like Frodo Baggins from Lord of the Rings
- Curly-haired Annie McElvein, 25, from Queenstown, asked for bangs
- Glanced in the mirror to see a stark resemblance to Frodo Baggins
- Hopes to one day meet Frodo actor Elijah Wood, and is happy with new look
A curly-haired woman who got a fringe at the hairdressers was surprised when she was left looking just like Frodo Baggins from Lord of the Rings.
Annie McElvein, 25, from Queenstown, South Island, decided to take the plunge and get ‘bangs’ – but she didn’t anticipate ending up looking like the hobbit.
She was shocked when she washed her new hair and glanced in the mirror to see a stark resemblance to Frodo Baggins.
Luckily, Annie is chuffed with the outcome because she ‘enjoys looking different’ – and hopes to one day meet Frodo actor Elijah Wood, who recently took to social media to shut down racist trolls of new series Rings of Power.
