Chile where do we begin with this one? An Atlanta stylist Tyler Shun posted a video of himself getting cussed out by his client who allegedly refused to pay for her $225 weave.
On Instagram he wrote:
I wasn’t going to speak on this matter, but this is ridiculous & I can’t make this sh*t up ??
Keep in mind.. I’m only posting this to bring awareness to any other hard working stylist in the area that may come cross this ” Realtor” in the Atlanta area..
I work my ass off & pour my heart & soul into everyone that sits in my chair.
From now on, I have to be careful & mindful of who I service to protect my peace, energy, life & wellbeing.
It took every bone in my body not to react negatively, but I knew that wouldn’t solve anything & she wasn’t worth it.
Never in my life witnessed someone take advantage of my hard work & talent, act a fool like this and then not pay me for my time and products.
The video went viral and of course people started to take action, including the stylist who shared the story with the blogger page “spritualworld”.
The woman in the video is Ms. Lucille Powell who is an independent contractor [realtor] with iBuyiSellrealty.
They shared the video and in the caption wrote:
Spiritual Word was contacted by the owner seen in video who is a hairstylist in #Atlanta #Georgia. Tyler D’Shunn, hairstylist in #Atlanta reached out Spiritual Word that his client, Ms. Lucille Powell (@lucy_2018_18) who is a Realtor in #Atlanta for the company “iBuyiSell Realty” (@ibuyisellrealty) refused to pay for service after a long 8+hr job. Tyler stated after he finished styling Lucille’s hair for the final results, she turned around, looked in the mirror and made a dramatic scene. Tyler stated Lucille was screaming and yelling in his face, belittling him, being very disrespectful, and negative. #Family what would you have done in this situation? (?: @tylerdshun)
The Real estate company who evidently saw the video decided to release her from their brokerage.
