It’s always worth checking out a business’ reputation before handing them your money Becca Peet from Hampshire in the U.K. knows this much better than most.
Like many women, Peet liked to have her hair done at the salon, often trying out new colors and styles. And with so much variety to choose from these days, even for your armpits, it’s no wonder that she wanted to experiment a little.
In Peet’s case, she wanted to lighten her naturally brunette hair with some highlights for her 21st birthday. That’s where things got out of control.
She scheduled an appointment at a salon near her home. This international chain of salons typically has positive reviews and feedback, but on this day, Peet got unlucky.
“When I was having the coloring done, my head suddenly felt like it was touching a hot pan that just kept betting hotter and hotter,” Peet recalled. “The foils were steaming and I said that it was burning and asked the girl.”
But the girl didn’t stop, even when asked. “She said, ‘No, it’s fine,’” Peet said.
Eventually, the foils were removed and the bleach rinsed from her hair. Peet said that her scalp had become numb by this time, thoughthe pain came back with the heat from the blow dryer. At that point, she again asked that the procedure stop.
Eventually, the complaints got her an apology from the management and her payment fee waived.
But little did Peet know that her nightmare was just beginning.
