Barber Cuts ‘Play’ Icon Into Man’s Hair After Customer Showed Him Paused Image Of Model
If you think you’ve suffered a bad haircut or two in your time, spare a thought for poor Tian Xiu Bot.
Tian Xiu Bot, a blogger popular on China’s Weibo social media platform, posted a picture just before the New Year of his new ‘style’ that soon went viral in the country.
Tian Xiu’s photo revealed a sharp new short haircut with one glaring extra feature: a triangle cleanly shaved into the side of the head.
The barber who cut Tian Xiu’s hair shaved the triangle shape into both sides of his customer’s head.
Unfortunately, Tian Xiu’s barber had failed to realise that the image his customer had showed as an example of what he wanted was from a paused video.
The triangle ‘worn’ by the model in said video wasn’t some newfangled fashion, but simply a play icon on Tian Xiu’s screen.
The blogger was reportedly watching a video in the hairdresser’s prior to having his haircut, and paused on an image of a model whose hairstyle he wanted to emulate.
When his turn for a trim came around, Tian Xiu Bot showed the image to the hairdresser, who asked if the blogger wanted that hairstyle exactly.
When Tian Xiu responded that he did, the barber obliged, triangle and all.
