A four-year-old girl has been left in tears after her hairdresser refused to cut her hair over a strange new policy.
The girl’s mother, Stacey Paul, claims the Bogaarts Styling Lounge in South Auckland refused to cut her daughter Shelby’s hair because Ms Paul wasn’t a customer.
The mum said Shelby is a regular customer and has been going to the same salon since she was a baby. Ms Paul wanted her daughter’s fringe trimmed ahead of a wedding.
But due to what’s reportedly a new policy, Shelby left without a haircut.
“They said it was because I don’t get my hair cut there,” Ms Paul told the NZ Herald.
“They told me ‘she can only get her hair cut if you get yours done here’.”
The mum claims she couldn’t afford it and they had to leave. She also claims Shelby was left in tears.
A hairdresser from Bogaarts told Mail Online it hasn’t changed the policy and explained the salon has “existing clients who have children” and “we have just decided to look after those children”.
