Hairstylist shaves off patron's hair without her consent

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.

"Your gonna have to shave your head anyway, so why not do it now?" Bitch who said it was your job? Oh hell nah. If that was me I would show up with my own clipper and shave her head.

those hair stylist seem crazy. I don't understand what the purpose of the procedure is for?

It is the same procedure for laser permanent hair removal under armpits. You have to shave first, the hairs need to be short to be burnt. The purpose is for them not to grow anymore. The woman in the article probably thought her hair line was too low on her forehead and wanted to correct it with laser procedure so the heir won't grow back there anymore...

*hair lol, not heir XD

Oh ok. I see. Looking at the hair line there...I personally don't think it's too low.

a lot of people here in Korea are too scared to speak up even when something is wrong. They instead rather just complain in order to avoid confrontatio. Especially if the lady doing something is a lot older. Of course not all korean people are like this some like me would of smacked this lady
