A Brooklyn woman has been left devastated by a salon-mishap that caused her hair to fall out in handfuls, reportedly leaving permanent bald spots in areas where the follicles were burned.
The New York-based oncology nurse, who has asked not to be identified and is being referred to as 'Bernice', was at the Best Dominican Stylist Salon on Avenue L in Brooklyn, her usual hair salon, when she noticed her stylist, Caesar, using something different on her hair.
'When he applied the product in my hair I didn’t feel any sensation of my head. He paused. He told me to rush to the sink. I went to the sink and he was speechless,' she told PIX11...
'I asked for a mirror and I said, "Caesar what happened?" And he said, "Your hair is falling out! Your hair is falling out!"'
Bernice told the news outlet that Caesar started speaking to the salon owner's daughter in Spanish, and according to her friend, who understands the language, she told someone to go out and buy the correct conditioner.
However, it was too late as Bernice's hair had already burned off after being treated with an unknown chemical.
