Hairdressers often get up close and personal with our crowning glory, so they can do their job adequately and snip our locks according to our liking.
However, one Malaysian aircon technician took to Facebook to share that his hairdresser gave him a disgusted look and complained that he smelled of sweat.
He also claimed that the hairdresser was unwilling to cut his hair.
She eventually did but allegedly charged him an extra S$3 (RM10) for the services.
On Sunday (23 Oct), the man shared on Facebook that he was an aircon technician and decided to get a haircut after work.
He walked into a hair salon, and the moment he sat down, the hairdresser gave him a look and complained about his sweat smell.
The hairdresser said the smell disgusted her and was stinking up her salon.
He responded by sharing his occupation with her. Working outdoors in the sweltering weather, checking and fixing up air-con units, it was inevitable that he would get sweaty.
The man felt it was unreasonable to expect him to go home, shower, visit the hairdresser, and then take another shower upon returning home.
Following that, the hairdresser allegedly became very unwillingly cut his hair.
When he paid, he realised the hairdresser had charged him an additional S$3 (RM10) for the haircut.
As he walked out, the hairdresser was said to have shouted at another staff to spray the salon with air freshener.
In his Facebook post, the man lamented the incident, saying that being an aircon technician is tough work.
Workers like him climb high and low to ensure people are comfortable in a cooling environment, only to be treated with such disdain.
The Facebook post went viral, garnering over 680 shares and 2,000 comments.
One netizen, who is also a hairdresser, said she would never treat a customer differently because they smelled of sweat and would cut their hair.
However, some hold the opinion that every profession is tough. Knowing he would be sweaty after work, the man should have visited the hair salon on his off day instead.
Others felt that both parties had their reasons for acting the way they did. For the hairdresser, she might fear that other customers will be affected by the man’s sweaty odour.
