Disgruntled Customer Shaves Barber’s Head Over Bad Haircut

A Russian man vacationing in Pattaya, Thailand has been caught on camera shaving a local barber’s head in revenge for the disatisfactory haircut he had received.

The shocking footage that has been doing the rounds online for over a week shows a Caucasian man getting a haircut at the Salute Barbershop in Pattaya. According to eye witnesses, he walked into the venue and explained to one of the barbers there how he wanted his hair cut using hand gestures because he allegedly didn’t speak very good English. At one point, the man, who was later identified as a Russian tourist, looked into the mirror and flew into a feat of rage over the botched haircut. He started slamming his fists on the table and swearing at the barber, before picking up the shears and shaving part of his fringe as revenge.

“You crazy mother f*****,” the unnamed man can be heard shouting in the video. “I showed you. What the f***. Where are my bangs? What the f***.”

Following the angry tirade, the Russian man grabs a pair of clippers and shaves part of the Thai barber’s fringe before quickly storming out of the barbershop without paying for his haircut. The whole scene left both the staff and the other clients speechless.

“After he slammed the table, he grabbed my head, pulled it down, then trimmed my hair with a clipper,” Suphachai, the 32-year-old barber, told reporters. I didn’t retaliate, but I felt angry. I thought about several potential consequences if I fought back. I was afraid of facing legal repercussions or losing my job. So I chose to do nothing.”

Suphachai was forced to shave his whole head, as the deep hole in his fringe was impossible to hide. He also filed a complaint with the local police and is hoping to receive an apology from the Russian man. That is going to be tough to get, considering the man has already left Thailand.
