Barber Arrested for Giving Customer a Bad Haircut

How many times have you gone to a hair stylist, only to be disappointed with the results? If you've ever suffered from a terrible haircut, you might feel a little satisfaction in knowing at least one barber is suffering the consequences for a poor job. The client says the botched haircut made him look like one of the three stooges, and police must have agreed.

A Madison, Wisconsin barber gave such a bad haircut to a customer that he's being brought up on charges. The customer says that the stylist not only shaved a strip down the center of his head but also snipped his ear during the appointment. Whatever went down between these two, things sure got ugly.

The customer, an unnamed local, walked into Ruby’s Salon for a trim on December 22. He asked for the sides to be shaved with a No. 2 clipper, and for the barber to cut an inch off the top.

Khaled A. Shabani, a 46-year-old barber who works with the salon, began the job but was apparently unhappy with the customer's squirming. Shabani allegedly gripped the customer's ear and twisted it, telling him to stop fidgeting.

The customer insists that he was not moving around that much.

Shabani continued to struggle with the customer and reportedly snipped the man's ear with a scissor. The man’s ear began to bleed.

Shabani wasn't finished, though. He put a No. 0 attachment on the Clippers-- the shortest there is, used for shaving the head bald-- and he ran the clippers right down the center of the customer's head.

The customer claims he got up and fled as Shabani called after him, “You want a zero, right?”

The customer had a bald strip shaved down the center from his head, claiming it made him look like Larry Fine of the Three Stooges. He called the police, who arrested Shabani for mayhem and disorderly conduct while armed.

“While it is not a crime to give someone a bad haircut, you will get arrested for intentionally snipping their ear with a scissors,” said Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain told the State Journal.

Shabani insists the mistakes he made during the haircut were all unintentional accidents.

The customer went to a different barber. In order to correct the bad hair day, the other barber had to shave the rest of his head to match the strip down the center. It wasn’t the look he intended for the holidays, but at that point, the best he could hope for was damage control.

Just about everyone has had at least one salon disaster, though usually, they’re too embarrassed to say much. A lot of people don’t want to speak up when they’re unhappy with the job that they stylist is doing. The best possible thing a person can do is to be vocal.

If the stylist appears to be cutting off too much, say it’s getting a little too short. It might be salvaged yet. If you’re unhappy with the overall look, let them know what you don’t like about it. If you’re polite, and they’re professional, they won’t take it personally and they’ll try to fix it for you.

And of course, if your stylist is having such a bad day that he or she is tweaking your ears and cutting you with the scissors, get out of the chair and get help.
