- A woman has gained significant online attention after she declined to pay for a braided hairstyle at a salon in South Africa.
- The incident was brought to public notice when a Twitter user shared videos showing the woman having her hair forcibly shaved off by an enraged hairstylist due to her refusal to settle the bill.
- According to the tweep, the customer had requested the hair styling service despite lacking the funds to cover the cost.
In a series of videos, Twitter user @AdvoBarryRoux publicized a highly charged altercation between a customer and a hairstylist.
The catalyst for this explosive encounter was the customer’s refusal to pay for a requested braided hairstyle as she had no money.
The footages capture the hairstylist resorting to a razor blade, resulting in the woman’s hair being completely shaved off, leaving her with a strikingly bald appearance.
Captioning the tweet, the poster wrote:
“This hairdresser cut the hair of a customer who failed to pay after plaiting her hair. She ordered them to do her hair while she knew that she doesn’t have money. This is wrong ”
