SAMUT PRAKAN: A woman in Samut Prakan is suing a beauty salon for 100,000 baht in damages over a haircut.

On April 24, Naphasason Angkuramaethisak, 49, went to the salon to have her long hair cut into a more fashionable short style she saw in a magazine.

When 29-year-old Narathip Thaiphat finished the cut, Ms Naphasason was shocked at how short her hair had been cropped. She demanded the young hairdresser fix the problem, but nothing could be done.

Ms Naphasason complained to the owner of the salon but was unsatisfied with the amount of compensation offered.

A few days later, Ms Naphasason reported the ‘crime’ to Samut Prakan Police.

Although Ms Naphasason’s case might appear frivolous, the fact that her partner is a high-ranking officer at the Royal Thai Police Headquarters was not lost on officers at the station.

They duly placed a phone call to the unfortunate hairdresser, 29-year-old Narathip Thaiphat, in an effort to resolve the dispute.

Miss Narathip told police that she had warned Ms Naphasason that the style she had chosen in the magazine was not suitable for her.

The model in the picture, a Caucasian woman, had wavy hair. Ms Naphasason’s hair, being straight, needed to be cut shorter, she explained.

Ms Naphasason refused to listen to her advice and demanded her hair be cut to look just like that of the model in the picture, Miss Narathip said.

Miss Narathip said she gave 6,000 baht in compensation, but Ms Naphasason demanded 100,000 baht, claiming she needed treatment at a specialist clinic to repair the damage.

Miss Narathip said she had no way of getting hold of the money.

Unable to straighten out the tangle, the police made a record of the incident in the daily log.

Ms Naphasason said she will lodge a lawsuit against the hairdresser in the civil court system.
