All YouTubers seem to be embroiled in controversies at some point in their career.

Brad Mondo, a YouTuber popular for posting funny hair-style reaction videos and go-to hair guru, was berated by fans over a twin drama with his brother Eric Mondo. 

If you’ve been watching Brad’s videos somewhat regularly, you might have noticed that his popular videos are titled 'I gave my Twin a Major Hair Makeover,' 'I tried Squirt Gun Hair Color With My Twin!' and so on.

These videos were really popular. Why? Because people love twin content. But is Brad Mondo a twin?

YouTube is filled with twins; Dolan Twins, Dobre Twins, Niki & Gabi, Merrell Twins, Brooklyn & Bailey, and the list goes on. Brad and Eric looked so identical that viewers believed they were twins, which boosted his views and subscribers.

It even started a Reddit thread. Fans discussed at lengths about whether they were identical or fraternal twins and how height differences were common amongst twins. 

Are Eric & Brad Mondo Twins or Brothers?

Fans became more curious about their personal life, and after some digging, they found out that their birth date and height are not the same.

According to their mother’s Instagram, it is clear the two are not twins. Brad was born on October 28, 1994, while Eric was born on April 17, 1992. 

Upon learning the truth, fans were upset at being lied to.

In the same Reddit thread, some fans wrote that they clearly remembered Brad explaining in a video that they were brothers, and the twin’s thing was a joke because people kept commenting that they looked identical.

YouTubers like Brad know that it takes a lot to get views, and hence his “twin videos” were accused of having exaggerated titles known as click baits to hook potential viewers.

Although the brothers have not commented on it, Brad uploaded a video on April 2 with his brother, and this time, he avoided using the word twin and opted for the title 'Drunk Get Ready With Me Ft. Eric Mondo.'

Brad Mondo’s Illustrious Career

Brad and Eric were raised by a hairdresser father. He owned a salon in which Brad spent most of his time. He loved having total creative freedom and thus joined YouTube. 

He initially posted reaction videos on the platform but gradually diversified his content and started giving hair care tips and showing his hairdressing skills to remain relevant.

Brad set the record straight that washing hair in cold water would result in healthier, shinier hair and advised against using hot water. 

I’m known as a hairdresser who reacts to hair fails. I love doing those videos and I think they’re super entertaining, but I’m more than that.

Soon he caught the attention of celebrities and worked with Shay Mitchell, Vanessa Hudgens, and Heather Marks. Today Brad has over 7 million subscribers on YouTube and is the founder and CEO of XMONDO Hair.
