A Bexley woman who treated herself to a haircut before a night out was left shocked after a chunk of her hair was inexplicably chopped off.

Amy Gallagher, 19, had never visited Supercuts in Orpington High Street but decided to try somewhere new on Saturday (September 29).

She claims to have originally asked for a £30 trim before the hairdresser cut her hair shoulder-length.

"I thought it was nice, a bit short but I would get used to it," Amy told News Shopper. "She then asked did I want my fringe cut."

Amy said the hairdresser, who she believes looked young, started "chopping away" her hair before offering a "curly blow dry".

According to Amy, the haircut looked "decent" but her mind changed after visiting her mum at a nearby tattoo shop.

"My mum was like 'oh my god'," Amy said. "She told me I need to look at my hair because it is really bad.

"They had cut a chunk from the left side. She tried to rearrange my hair to hide it. I went home and noticed and was so upset.

"I take pride in my hair. I didn’t really wanna go out."

Despite the haircut, Amy summoned up the courage to go on a night out before storming into the salon the following day.

She said the manager offered no explanation, refunded her and asked if she wanted them to cut the other side to balance it. 

Amy said: "I told her they had done enough and they gave me the money back.

"I have to tie my hair back now and I don’t like that."

A worker at Supercuts told News Shopper a full refund was given and they would not be commenting further.
