Our hair is such an important part of our image that it directly impacts upon our confidence levels. A bad haircut is extremely damaging to our sense of self-esteem.

We came upon this story over the weekend about an air hostess, called Donna Smith, whose 45cm long beautiful hair is completely ruined by her stylist to the extent that she’s forced to shave it off and wear a wig while it slowly grows back.

But that’s not the end of it. Because of the nature of Donna’s work, her appearance means more to her than most. As a cabin crew manager, looking immaculate is par for the course. Her destroyed hair affected her so badly that she took six months off work, was prescribed anti-depressant medication and is still waiting for her hair to return to its original length.

The cause of Donna’s nightmare was a standard hair lightening procedure. The dye was left on for too long, resulting in her hair matting and falling out in chunks. Following a legal battle, Donna received £9,100 from the salon.
