Pattaya —

A Thai hairdresser in Jomtien found himself in an unusual situation after an angry Russian customer took a razor from him and shaved part of his hair following a misunderstanding during a haircut.

According to reports, Mr. Supachai Maneecharoen, a 32-year-old hairdresser from Nakhon Si Thammarat, was cutting the hair of a male Russian customer on January 25th when the incident occurred. Due to language barriers, the customer used hand gestures to communicate his desired hairstyle. Mr. Supachai, believing he understood the instructions, proceeded with the haircut. However, towards the end of the haircut, the customer allegedly became dissatisfied and slammed his hand on the table, startling everyone in the shop.

In a surprising turn of events, the Russian customer reportedly snatched a razor from the table and quickly shaved a section of Mr. Supachai’s head before fleeing the salon on a motorcycle. The Thai hairdresser, shaken by the experience, reported the incident to the Pattaya Police Station.

“I’ve been a hairdresser for over seven years, and this has never happened before,” Mr. Supachai stated. “Despite the shock, I remained calm and hope the customer will come forward to apologize and explain his actions.”

Mr. Supachai later decided to shave his head after the incident.

Police have obtained CCTV footage from the salon, which reportedly shows the entire incident. An investigation is currently underway to identify the customer and determine the appropriate course of action.
