A Russian man shaved part of his barber’s hair after not getting his desired haircut in Jomtien, Pattaya on January 25.

The hairdresser, 32 year old Supachai Maneecharoen found himself in a hair-raising predicament during a routine trim last month. The scissor showdown unfolded as the language barrier led to this salon drama.

Amidst snips and clips, a Russian man, struggling with linguistic nuances, resorted to expressive hand gestures to convey his desired haircut to Supachai. Misinterpreting the non-verbal cues, the Thai stylist diligently snipped away, believing he had captured the essence of what his client wanted.

As the final strands fell, chaos erupted. The dissatisfied Russian man, reportedly irate, unleashed his frustration with a thunderous hand slam on the styling table, jolting the entire salon. However, the real twist came when the disgruntled Russian seized a razor from the table and swiftly transformed a section of Supachai’s locks into an avant-garde masterpiece, reported ASEAN Now.
