A woman who was seeking a men's haircut has called out the barber who refused to do it for her — but now she's wondering if she went too far in "shaming" his small business.
The woman posted on Reddit's "Am I the A**hole?" section about her dilemma.
"I am a woman in my 20s who has very short hair," she writes. "It isn't just short, it is straight up a men's cut, as I am very masculine/butch looking in general."
She's been getting her hair cut at a barber for several years, she says, "since it's cheaper and they never try to push me to have a more feminine pixie cut."
Her barber moved away, so she tried to find someone new:
At the recommendation of my male friend, I found a place that looked good. I walked in and requested a haircut, and the barber looked at me strangely. He said they don't do women's haircuts. I clarified that I just wanted a men's barber haircut, but still he refused, telling me to go to a salon. I was shocked, since this is a big diverse city and short hair on women isn't THAT uncommon.
