Woman Horrified After Getting 'Worst Haircut Of 2020' After Stylist 'Got Drunk'
A mum says she was given the 'worst haircut of 2020' after her hairdresser got drunk while giving her a weave.
Emily Hunt, from Bolton, Greater Manchester, wanted to get her hair done ahead of the start of the second national lockdown that was imposed across England this month.
The 24-year-old turned to an old work colleague and paid her £70 to touch up her roots, add some highlights, and attach a £225 human hair piece.
But things didn't quite go according to plan, because after the stylist necked gin, Emily says she was left with a needle stuck in her neck and a horrific new look, sharing her experience online.
The mum-of-one later said: "It was the worst hairstyle of 2020. My hair just summed up the year.
"Someone even commented on my post 'if 2020 was a weave', it was so bad."
She went on: "As she was leaving I knew it was terrible, I just wanted to go upstairs and die. She was drunk when she did my hair, she got drunk drinking my gin.
"I think it [the bad style] was a combination of her being a bit drunk and not being very good at weaves.
"She'd said 'I thought I was going to come round for a drink' and I said 'yeah we can have a drink if you want and we can do my hair another time' and she went 'no we can have a drink and I'll do your hair. Trust me it'll be fine I'll be able to do it'.
Adding: "I'd bought this bottle of gin, she was drinking it more than me. She had about four or five glasses of gin, I only had two."
After forking out the cash for her new do, Emily went to bed mortified at her mop. And unable to sleep, she messaged a nearby hair salon at 2am and pleaded for an appointment to sort it out.
Fortunately, they were able to fit her in and end her weave nightmare before the country's salons had to close.

Emily said: "I didn't sleep properly, I kept waking up all night and I messaged a stylist at 2am saying, 'please can you fit me in tomorrow morning because you're never going to believe it'.
"Everybody's eyes were popping out of their heads and their jaws were dropping, all the stylists were saying it's the worst weave they've ever seen.
"When the hairdresser got to the second row, that's when she found the needle when it pricked her finger.
"She couldn't believe it was there and said 'what the hell? Where did that come from?'."
Adding: "She [original hairdresser] caught my scalp with the needle tip and it hurt. It's got a scab on it now so it must have bled.
Having received no reply from the former colleague to her messages following the incident, Emily shared her horror story to Facebook.
And despite the woman eventually offering to fix the botched job - and knock off £30 - she declined and has since reported her to Trading Standards.
Emily said: "She sent me a voice note saying 'I'm sure I've done a really bad job, I'll come back on Wednesday to sort it out.
"I said I would be out and then asked her for a refund and she started kicking off.
"She then started saying she should have charged me £110, which is the standard price for all of those hair treatments, and offered to refund me £30.
"I contacted her boss who said a message would be passed on, but mentioned it happened outside of work and was nothing to do with them.
"I won't be letting her do my hair again and I've contacted Trading Standards."
Adding: "I just want my money back, I also don't want anyone else getting the same treatment."
