Mum Mortified After Barber Gives Her Son Dumb And Dumber Haircut

Mum Mortified After Barber Gives Her Son Dumb And Dumber Haircut

A mum has been left 'mortified' after her nine-year-old's haircut went badly wrong and ended up leaving him looking like Jim Carrey's character in Dumb and Dumber.

The lockdown only started this morning, and the awful haircuts are already back. Brace yourselves for more, too.

In this instance, 31-year-old Carley Dormer decided to take her son Mason along to get his mop chopped ahead of the new restrictions and wasn't exactly thrilled with the outcome.

Dormer says her son and partner, Aaron Russell, have been going to the Pitsea Turkish Barbers in Basildon for two years now, and had nothing to complain about before now.

However, she claims that on this occasion the barber 'mutilated' her son's hair and left him with a wonky 'bowl cut' fringe.

Then, she claims her demands for her money back led the barber to tell her never to darken their doorstep again.

That shouldn't be too difficult, given what's on show here.

Dormer explained: "It was absolutely awful. He looked exactly like Jim Carrey out of Dumb and Dumber - not how a nine-year-old boy wants to look at all.

"He ended up crying as the barber just made it worse after we told him twice to try and straighten it out."

She went on to explain how she 'politely' asked for a refund, but was told 'not to come back anymore'.

She continued: "It was a really odd situation. We have never had any issues in there before.

"I had told the barber we just wanted the usual doing on my son's hair, as it was the same guy who has done his hair before.

"But his hair looked really odd - it looked like it had had a chunk taken out of it at the front, and it was really uneven.

"The guy said he would fix it - but then when he finished off it was still really slanted.

"I said, sorry, I'm really not happy with this, could you make it a bit more even please?

"Even one of the other customers in the barbershop agreed with me and said that it wasn't straight."

She added: "I tried to politely ask if we could just get our money back for my son's haircut, as I wasn't happy with it.

"Then he yelled at us, 'How about you just don't come back anymore?'

"I understand they are under a lot of pressure at the moment, but we're paying them for a service which hadn't been done properly."

Now, another barber has stepped in after seeing the tale and agreed to sort everything out.

Steven Gomma, from Goodycuts, even did the work for nothing.

Carley said: "He was amazing. He worked a 14-hour shift the day before lockdown trying to fit in all his clients, and still had time to see Mason."

As for Pitsea Turkish Barbers, the manager said: "We employ only the best barbers who are professional and certified in the industry.

"I do not believe there was anything wrong with the haircut.

"The lady made the child distressed by shouting and being aggressive to my staff.

"The child was happy with the haircut, however his mother was adamant she wanted her money back.

"I know it's a tough time for us all, however if she really wanted a free haircut she could have asked and we would have helped her, because we understand that we are in unusual and challenging times.

"We gave her a refund and she is more than welcome back if she chooses to come."
