The red-faced schoolboy tearfully confessed to shaving his eyebrows off and begged his mum to glue fake ones on.
But instead she taught him a lesson by drawing new eyebrows onto his face and making him go to school with the replacements.
Billy-Joe Cain had swiped his step-dad Craig Richardson’s razor from the bathroom cupboard and decided to indulge in some personal grooming when he was supposed to be brushing his teeth before bed.
Older brother Leon Cain, 13, grew suspicious when nine-year-old Billy-Joe hadn’t emerged from the bathroom for 10 minutes and alerted his mum Kylie Cain.
The 29-year-old mum-of-five tracked Billy-Joe down to the living room, where he was hiding behind the sofa "laughing his head off".
But at 8am the next day his smiles soon turned to tears when he realised with horror he would have to go to school with just half of his eyebrows intact.
The shame-faced youngster then begged Kylie to glue on some fake eyebrows before going to school.
Kylie from Wigan, Greater Manchester, said: “I was just gobsmacked when I saw what he’d done and was laughing about it, I couldn’t believe it.
"It was one of those cases where you either laugh or cry so I chose to laugh.
“I asked him why he’d done it and just said he didn’t know and that he wanted me to superglue false eyebrows on him.
“The following morning he said he didn’t want to go to school because everyone would laugh at him but I made him go in.
“I used one of my black eyeliners to draw him some new eyebrows. It took ten minutes to do them as it was really difficult to get them equal and to match, but I reckon I did a decent job."
And to Kylie's surprise, the drawn on brows lasted all day and none of Billy-Joe's classmates noticed.
She added: “Even though he didn’t want to go to school I decided to send him in to teach him a lesson – that he shouldn’t mess with razors.”
Billy-Joe said: “I was shocked mum made me go into school but then I thought it was funny. After what happened I won’t be going near razors again.”
