A 21-year-old college student in Korea had a hairstylist from hell.
The student posted on a popular online community board about her terrible experience at a hair salon in the Gwangjoo area where she visited to get a straightening perm on the hair roots.
During the initial consultation, the student talked to the hairstylist about a laser hairline correction procedure. The stylist responded, "Yes, it is better to just do the procedure instead of trying to grow out the hair."
The customer, thinking that she should look into getting the laser hair removal at a later date, said, "Yeah, I should really get it done later....Please go ahead."
The customer thought that she was asking for just the perm procedure to begin. However, the stylist misunderstood what the student wanted and picked up a hair clipper and began to work on the hairline around her forehead.
Not quite sure how bad the damage was, the customer left the salon. After assessing the terrible state of her hair, she contacted the hair salon.
The salon owner initially apologized and said, "You wanted to do the laser procedure anyway, so why not do it now? I will pay for half of it. You have to shave off the hair anyway for the procedure," but the student refused.
The stylist and the customer argued over texts. The stylist said, "I will never give you the money back. In 18 years of working in this industry, I've never encountered a situation like this...You asked me to shave the hairline, so I am not responsible!"
She later changed her position and offered to give free blowouts until the bangs were grown out and a free straightening perm on the bangs.
However, the 21-year-old did not feel like they were sincerely apologetic. On her online post, she asked netizens, "Is it normal for them to use a hair clipper to clean up the hairline? Is this even a normal amount of hair removal?"
Many netizens are commenting on the post. Some are blaming the young woman saying, "You should have communicated more clearly," and "Why did you let them bring a clipper to your forehead in the first place?" A commenter who identified as a hairstylist said, "You're not supposed to do that! That stylist must be a psychopath." One pointed out that she can sue for damage, citing other cases.
