A BRIDE-TO-BE has come under fire for demanding her teen step-daughter cut her long hair for her wedding.
The woman, 28, is set to marry the 15-year-old teen's father, 42, and her a list of demands that she wanted her step-daughter to carry out for her big day, including getting the chop.
The teen turned to Reddit for advice, as she explained that her dad was re-marrying her step-mother just two years after the death of her mother.
She explained that she looks a lot like her late mum and thinks that's why her step-mother, who didn't want to be "upstaged" had wanted her to cut her hair.
When the girl refused, her step-mother called her a "selfish brat".
To make things worse, she revealed her dad was in full support of her step-mum's demands to cut her hair short.
The teen wrote: "My dad and my his fiancee are getting married in November this year. I didn’t really like Alice because I think she replaced my mum too soon.
"My mum died of cancer two years ago and she and dad started dating eight months after. I try to be as polite as I can whenever she’s around or starts a conversation with me. Dad never forced me to have a relationship with her and I can also see that she’s not interested in having one."
The girl continued: "After they got engaged, Alice approached me and said we needed to talk. She said she has a clear vision of how she wants her wedding to be and that I have to comply so that everything will be perfect.

“I said sure and asked her what I need to do. She said, ‘First, I want you to cut your hair short; second, you can’t wear heels and lastly, only wear light makeup and no fake lashes. Okay?’
“I let her finish before I responded. I said I can do the second and third but I will not be cutting my hair.”
The girl explained that she got her long blonde wavy hair from her mum and wanted to keep it long in honour of her.
"Alice accused me of wanting to upstage her. I said that’s not what I’m trying to do and I think it’s unfair since I know she didn’t make these demands on her other female guests," the girl wrote.
“She then called me a selfish brat and told me she’ll tell my dad about how I ‘disrespected her’. My dad then got involved and told me to just cut my hair because it will grow back anyway.
"I said her request is ridiculous and I’d rather not attend their wedding than to cut my hair."

Realising that she's now put her dad in a difficult situation, the girl asked others for advice as she revealed she's now considering cutting her hair to please her dad.
People, however, were outraged by the step-mother's "insulting" request and urged the teen not to touch her hair, as the post racked up 2.8k comments.
One person vented: "How insecure do you have to be to accuse your 15-year-old step-daughter to upstage you?"
Another said: "If you’re not in the bridal party there is absolutely no reason for you to cut your hair. And frankly it’s insulting that she would ask you."
A third wrote: "She only wants you to cut your hair because she’s insecure and jealous. She’s worried that you will remind your father of your mother."
One more added: "It’s her big day sure, but she doesn’t have the right to tell people to alter their natural appearance by any measure. Tell her you’ll cut your hair when she cuts her bulls*** out."
