"This is not the Victoria Beckham haircut I wanted!"

I was renting a space as a nail technician at a hair salon, so when I had nothing to do, I would sit and watch the hairdresser doing clients' hair.

One particular morning a client requested Victoria Beckham's 'High Low Bob' that was the craze at the time, cut high the back low in front and as time went by the woman started to freak out!

"What on earth have you done to my hair?", and we all looked her way in silence. Even the experienced hairdresser of 20 years' experience froze.

"This is not what I asked for! Just look at this. What are these 2 pieces in the front? You ruined my hair! I want to see the owner now!" She demanded.

I must admit, the haircut was looking ridiculous.

"But I'm not finished yet," the hairdresser told her. "Once I'm done with your haircut, you will see the result."

The receptionist nervously called the owner, and before the woman could ask me how ridiculous she looked, I got into acting mode and had the urge to get very busy cleaning my nail section. In fact, all the staff got rather busy trying to avoid the hysterical woman.

Eventually, the owner arrived and calmed her down, the hairdresser finished the haircut and yes, the woman still looked ridiculous instead of getting Victoria Beckham's hairstyle. It was more like Victoria's dog's haircut and the disgruntled woman left in a huff.
