A woman has been charged with two counts of third-degree assault, fourth degree criminal possession of a weapon and second-degree harassment misdemeanor charges after going absolutely positively HAM in a hair salon in the Financial District of Manhattan last week, causing damage and injuring another client.
26-year-old Rachel Meyers went to Century 27 Beauty Salon for a standard hair appointment, but became enraged with stylists for "screwing up her hair." After yelling at the stylists and accusing them of knotting her hair, they took her to a sink to try a different conditioner, and then according to the 52-year-old victim, "she just really snapped." Via DNA Info:
The young woman started throwing whatever was in her way — chairs, hair dryers, shampoo bottles — crashing through the small second-floor parlor in an angry fit, said the victim, who lives in the Financial District.
"Suddenly this like 20-pound metal box was being hurled at my head, so I ducked and somehow it hit my leg. I don't think she was throwing it at me — I was just in the way of this crazy scene. I felt like I was in a movie — it was that dramatic."
Uh holy shit.
We've all had a bad haircut here and there, but for the most part, it's not that big of a deal. The great thing about hair is that it grows back. Sure, uneven bangs or unflattering layers suck, or just one of those 'what the fuck happened hairdos' suck, especially when you're paying top dollar for it. But like sand through the hourglass, so is the growth of our hair. If I hulked out every time something went wrong with my hair we'd be living in a post-apocalyptic world right now. It would actually be the precursor to 1968's Planet of the Apes.
UPDATE: As it turns out, the woman was a postal worker. In uniform.
