This Dude Allegedly Lost His Shit Over A $50 Haircut That Actually Looks Pretty Good


Getting a haircut can be stressful. Especially if you’re going to a new guy who doesn’t know how you like it. But there’s really no reason to get too worked up over a subpar trim because hair, as you know, grows back.

Stamford (Conn.) police say Alan Becker here did not keep his emotions in check during a recent trip to a salon.

A man who was unhappy with his haircut faces criminal charges after police say he became enraged and threw items around a Connecticut salon.

Stamford Police Sgt. Kelly Connelly says 47-year-old Alan Becker was angered further when he learned the trim he got Wednesday morning was going to cost him $50.

Connelly says Becker kicked a hole in a salon wall, became hostile toward staff and customers, and threw a candle display and other items, then left.

Police say Becker returned later and demanded his hair be “fixed,” but the salon refused.

OK, so that’s terrible behavior. And it’s even more galling considering his hair looks pretty damn good. Sure, there’s a little bit of a receding hairline but that’s on Becker, not the hair stylist. Can’t go into the salon expecting miracles.

Protip: next time just ask for a No. 2 on the sides and back with an inch up top. Impossible for even the most inebriated of barbers to mess that one up.
