“I only cut 10cm, but I left 10cm…Severe shock” Indian beauty salon ordered to pay 300 million won
[아시아경제 황수미 기자] A hairdresser in India cut the wrong hair of a hair product model and paid 300 million won in compensation.
According to the BBC on the 24th (local time), a beauty salon in a luxury hotel in New Delhi, India, has received an order from the National Consumer Dispute Mediation Committee (NCDRC) to pay 20 million rupees (approximately 320 million won) to a female hair product model.
A female model who visited this hair salon in 2018 asked for it to be about 10cm from the tip of her hair, but the reason was that the hairdresser misunderstood this and cut the woman’s hair short, leaving only 10cm.
The woman used to get a job as an advertising model for hair products because of her long hair at the time. However, the hairdresser cut her hair short at her request, which resulted in a loss of advertising contracts, the NCDRC noted.
“This not only prevented her from getting the advertising contract she was hoping for, it completely changed her lifestyle, but also shattered her dream of becoming a top model,” the NCDRC said in a statement.
She added, “She suffered a serious psychological shock and trauma, including loss of self-confidence due to negligence at the hairdresser.
The NCDRC ordered compensation within eight weeks, but the salon is considering an appeal against the order.
