That is all types of wrong! Now that poor girl's self esteem will suffer because of someone so concerned with money.

But on the other hand, that mom knows damn well she didn't have the money to pay for those, yet she asked that lady to do them anyway. SMH.

Most braiders I know collect 1/2 the payment halfway through the style to avoid stuff like this.

Bunz that was my question too. Because after it was clear mom didn't have the money, did the mom just leave the girl there?

Maybe mom pulled a switch like...I'm running to the atm and then sent someone else to pick the girl up.

Either way the mom is all the way f*cked up for this.

And if this story is true, that someone is the mother

She should have spoke to the braider beforehand... maybe she would have been nice enough to work something out but having someone put in all that work knowing you don't have the funds to pay them is just wrong

Yup, maybe the braider would have still done her hair is a simple style.

If I'm working with someone new there's no way I would give full payment up front. There's too many ways things can go wrong and then I have no recourse to get my money back.

I don't blame the stylist for being engulfed with RAGE. Pure rage. Pure. Rage.

Yet....

I wish she would've taken it out on the mother. Can you imagine how tense and scared that little girl was as this (justifiably so) angry woman hacked away at her head.

I have so many questions...

I seen a stylist cut out a weave because the woman did not have the money to pay her. The stylists permed her edges treated her hair and clip the ends and installed the weave. After all that she told the stylist she loved her hair... meanwhile twirling in the mirror.She then told the stylist she would pay her the next time. Mind u it was her first time at the stylist. An argument started. The other hairdresser picked up on the cue... locked the salon door. One end up holding the lady down the other cut out her weave.

Butta it was epic... lets say all who was getting their hair done had their money out and ready to pay. Mind u there s a big sign up in the salon. NO CREDIT ON SERVICES...CASH UPFRONT

What's the confusion.
That's tacky.

When you're out to eat you eat then pay.
At a salon your hair is done then you pay.
At a nail salon you get you're mani then you pay.

When it comes to beauty services and most other services I have never in life heard of upfront payment.

It's disrespectful.


There had to have been another recourse than cutting through her head.
And she on insta like she did something...

Yeah this to me was a very violent act...having your hair forcibly cut. It is not something that I would ever think is ok to inflict on a child. Very very traumatizing.

The braider could and should have handled it differently.

I told my friend she needs one of those signs in her salon lol. Last week she did a lady's hair and after she finished,was told "I'll come by and bless you next week."

An example, Burke Williams Spa keeps your credit card on file to charge for your services. Most of the personal shopping departments do this as well.

I was just saying it isn't automatically "tacky". Whether it's beauty services or other things, it's a pretty common way of doing business.

The only time I've dealt with this with hair is at a braiding shop where you can walk in anytime, you don't know them and they don't know you. So they collect payment 1/2 way through to avoid problems.

But with people I have a regular stylist/client relationship with, that issue doesn't come up.


Posted By: jonesable
Date Posted: Jun 02 2014 at 3:19pm
That's not the same as paying upfront.
Plus with a credit card you can dispute the charge if you feel like the service you paid for isn t the service you were given.


No

I thought this was fake til i saw that the girl does have on the same shirt. I need to look up the ig..but if it is true, she probably cut the braiding hair a bit below where the child's real hair started and didnt damage the girls real hair. i have seen some slick stuff occur in hair salons. the momma should have stayed in the salon to see the child's hair being done to approve of the style while it was being don and the momma should have paid what she agreed to pay and that is all to it.

If she was wrong, what should have been done?

Spin off: You are a full time stylist and you install $150-$200 worth of braids and the customer doesn't pay, her mom left her there with no money, or she tries to run for the door. What do you do?

Yes I have been to salons and spas where you pay upfront. You don't like it you are refunded half or all your money. I don't see the big problem with paying upfront unless don't have the money. If you go to a restaurant eat and don't pay they will call the police. People know who to try to scam.I'm not justifying her actions because she should have got her money upfront.

I empathize with the stylist, I do.  Yet, a part of wonders why the little girl couldn't have just kept the braids.  The stylist wasted her time and services putting the braids in and wasted her time and services cutting the braids out of the little girl's head.  The stylist lost out either way.  I get it, the mother didn't pay - but should the little girl have to suffer?

IDK.  I've never seen a situation like that.

My convenience should be paramount to any and everything .
It's a tacky business practice to treat costumers like ready made thieves.

Y'all can though I don't do business with those ppl.


Oh oh and those stores that charge you a min. price to use your debit card or CC.
No thank you.

that is why it is good to have some gay dudes working in that shop. the kind that will jump into action into security guard mode when things go down. the mother is a crook. lets face it. she is probably getting her own hair and her childs hair done monthly strictly through scams. i would have cut the braids out too (not the child's reall hair of course). What is the big deal? Let her scammin ass momma unravel the rest of the extension hair out at home. What is so humiliating about that? its not like the little girls real hair was cut off.

A lady tried to scam my friend for a $30 synthetic wig & $40 wig application. It was 10pm on a Friday. That wig & ultrahold & edges was snatched clean off of her head b4 she could even try to run for the door. Every customer in there and all of the stylists were ready to make an example out of that azz if she tried to buck up. Oh well. As the Asian BSS and Korean nail shops say, 'PAY ME NOW!"LOL

around $75-100 depending on region.
*ETA, yeah, $150 some places but usually thats the adult price.
*Plus it takes around 3-4 hours to do that style, so opportunity cost needs to be factored in for that.

See and that's why I don't eff with them Asian shops.

I starting getting my manis and pedis at the black owned and operated salon and I love it.
The atmosphere is great and the service is beautiful.

And... I pay and tip after the service.


I can't stand those tacky signs in Asian shops.
One time I went and the lady held my bag until my transaction said approved.

She handed my receipt after and I told her I did not like the way that was handled and I wanted to return the things with a full refund.


Uh it was disgusting how she was clutching on to that bag like she knew it would be declined and I would run for the hills.
Hell no run me my money and get out or neighborhoods

The last stylist I went to charged a $75 deposit that was applied to whatever service you wanted. I honestly seen nothing wrong with it.


As for this stylist, I think she should've took it up with the mom. The mom must be a scary bish to have that lady post pics of her child like that!

This is maddening.  The mother is a crook.  Straight up.  Honestly, this child has probably been hurt psychologically in other ways if this is the kind of mess her mama pulls.  Hopefully it will make her want to be nothing like that.  Something like this would have crushed me as a kid.  But my moms would have never put me in that situation.

I need to know what evil SOB took the pictures.  We don't see the mom.  We don't see the stylist.  We see a CHILD.  All over the internet.  If the mother is smart enough she could have a lawsuit.  I hope they go on Judge Mathis.  

While I do agree that it's stealing, I would never go to a stylist who did something like this.

She's an unprofessional hoodrat. 

Suck it the phuck up. Part of being in business is having LOSSES. All of us have them, truthfully stylists "loss" is wrapped up in their time. I'd love for my losses to just be my 'time'. Sheit she used her "time" to go through cutting the braids out. She didn't even REMOVE them, she butchered them to be vindictive. Her actions overshadow the actions of the person who was trying to rip her off. No professional would do something like that. They understand business and value their reputation as a professional enough to not act an ass over a $100 hair style.

Try having a small business and getting a chargeback for $500.00 for a product the customer received and used. I've lost thousands in chargebacks, refunding bad customers, etc. It's called the cost of doing business. Kitchen stylists don't kno nun bout dat though, obviously. 

All businesses experience losses and horrible customers, but the way you HANDLE the situation is what will determine your longevity. Cutting the hair out of a child's head is a reflection of her mentality and I would never go to a stylist like that. It's not about "she got to eat too", if she wants to keep eating she needs to understand that the way you handle bad customers and learning how to pick your battles is what being in business is about.

I agree that the stylist should have handled it differently


Had I been the stylist, I would have had my words with the mother, refused service from her in the future, cut my losses and revamped the way I charge


But I feel what she did was as equally terrible as what the mother did... I hold the mother more accountable than the stylist. If you're putting your child in the middle of this mess then you have to expect whatever blow-back you might receive. It's totally irresponsible and the stylist was unprofessional

I need to know what evil SOB took the pictures.  We don't see the mom.  We don't see the stylist.  We see a CHILD.  All over the internet.  If the mother is smart enough she could have a lawsuit.  I hope they go on Judge Mathis.  

While I do agree that it's stealing, I would never go to a stylist who did something like this.



The stylist took the pics and posted them to her instagram page, which is now private.

I think either the mother was not there to pick the girl up because she wasn't going to pay or the mother was there and allowed the style to be cut. Either way, because the mother was so in the wrong most people would laugh in her face about a lawsuit.

If the stylist had been really smart she would have called the police, filed a report, and took the woman to small claims.

The mother was obviously wrong because she knew she didn't have the funds but one act of kindness could've remedied the situation and may have increased her business.

After all that she told the stylist she loved her hair... meanwhile twirling in the mirror.She then told the stylist she would pay her the next time. Mind u it was her first time at the stylist. An argument started. The other hairdresser picked up on the cue... locked the salon door. One end up holding the lady down the other cut out her weave.

Was this Foxy BrownLOL

letting them leave the shop with a free hairstyle?

the mother knew she had no money when she went in

she is a liar and a thief

she deserves no kindness....the braider should have called the police on her


for the child not the mother if it was a adult she should've called the cops not share the incident with the internet.

If I were that little girl, I'd probably NEVER get my hair done again. Even if I knew the whole story. That's insane to do to a child. It would've been less terrible if she woildve unbraided the whole thing, but to angrily clip at a child's head, AND take pics? Cray

If the mom had come in and said, hey I really don't have the money is there any way you could do a simple style just so my child doesn't have to look crazy and I'll work it off for you (clean the salon, cook you a pie, something)...that would have opened the door to some kindness from the braider.

I mean, a hairstyle isn't even necessary. There was no reason for the mom to be a crook in the first place. I wish the braider had called the police because that woman really needs to learn her lesson.

haven't read anything but the title and the pic

But are we sure the stylist didn't change up her prices at the end? Could have had braids are $100 posted up all over the store, online etc but at the end of the service it's miraculously $200 

Please say she didn't cut that little girl's real hair!  

That's not a good way to advertise your business

i bet she dropped the little girl off and the stylist was under the impression mom would pay when she was done. stylist was finished and little girl called the mom and told her she was ready. mom probably told the little girl to ask the stylist how much. mom was told the price and an argument ensued and somebody got hung up on. after that, welp, stylist took the scissors to the kids hair. damn.

Suck it the phuck up. Part of being in business is having LOSSES. All of us have them, truthfully stylists "loss" is wrapped up in their time. I'd love for my losses to just be my 'time'. Sheit she used her "time" to go through cutting the braids out. She didn't even REMOVE them, she butchered them to be vindictive. Her actions overshadow the actions of the person who was trying to rip her off. No professional would do something like that. They understand business and value their reputation as a professional enough to not act an ass over a $100 hair style.

Try having a small business and getting a chargeback for $500.00 for a product the customer received and used. I've lost thousands in chargebacks, refunding bad customers, etc. It's called the cost of doing business. Kitchen stylists don't kno nun bout dat though, obviously. 

All businesses experience losses and horrible customers, but the way you HANDLE the situation is what will determine your longevity.

Exactly we don't even know what actually happened.
We don't even really have much to speculate about.

All we have is that he's caption and the picture she took.

Did you infiltrate her insta already James?

Lol James assessment sounds pretty damn accurate though

My next door neighbor is a cop.  I should ask him what he would do if he got a call like this one.  Would she be arrested like a shoplifter?

the child didn't deserve this.  For the sake of not adding another traumatic experience to the life of a child, I would've chalked it up and waited for the late payment.  I hope both sides learned something from this.

Cops would have just made a report and told her its a civil matter. she would have to take to small claims court in order to get paid
