10 Times Nigerian Hairdressers Were The Absolute Worst

May 25, 2017

1. When they give you an 8 o’clock appointment but won’t show up till ten.

So this is where I will spend my entire day?

2. After showing up late, they use another one hour to sweep and arrange the place.

Could you please just hurry up?

3. When you go to retouch your hair alone and they start asking you if you want to fix nails, do make up and buy aso ebi too.

I did not come here to attend owambe, I just want to make my hair.

4. When they don’t know the hairstyle but instead of saying so they start to do nonsense on your head.

Is it by force?

5. When they start combing your hair like the devil is hiding inside it.

No. No. What is you doing?? No.

6. When they’re making your hair and start pushing it anyhow.

Please na.

7. When they pour lottabody on your hair just because of setting.

It’s not enough, why don’t you add more? Let me kukuma know that I want to be swimming  in setting lotion.

8. When they finish washing your hair and your shirt looks like you just took a swim.

Did I tell you I want to take a bath?

9. When you tell them you just want a trim and they decide to give you a big chop.

Did. You. Just. Cut. All. My. Hair?

10. When they leave your hair halfway to attend to their “customer” who just walked in.

Is this life?

But really, having a bad hairdresser is one thing, having a bad hair day IS the absolute worst:
