Haircut mishap

Chinese man says he wants the exact haircut, barber obliges

A fashion conscious Chinese man had been looking at trendy hairstyle videos, and choosing one he liked, he showed it to his barber.

Naturally, the video was paused on the preferred hairstyle.

The diligent barber replicated the hairstyle exactly, down to the 'Play Button' that was displayed on the paused video.

This is why I choose pictures of hairstyles to show to my barber!

Barber asked if man wanted triangle, man replied yes

Before blaming the barber, as we often do after haircut mishaps, we must consider this fact. The barber had asked the customer if he wanted to keep the triangle, and the inattentive customer had replied in the affirmative, causing his own hairstyle accident.
