Owner of a Barber Shop in Hot Water for What He Wouldn’t Do to a Woman’s Hair…

The owner of a men’s barber shop is in trouble because he wouldn’t cut a woman’s hair. No, seriously. That’s what he’s in trouble for.

But despite praise from loyal customers and the 4.9 star review on the business’s Facebook page, Interval was fined $750 by the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs for refusing to cut a woman’s hair.

According to CBS Pittsburgh, the woman who was turned away by Interval filed an action with the Bureau. And after the agency further investigated the woman’s allegations, they found it necessary to fine Barbiere for gender discrimination.

“I didn’t really consider it so much a discrimination thing as… it’s a barbershop… for guys,” Interval tells CBS.

That’s what I don’t get because cutting men’s and women’s hair are two entirely different things, and he even said “I don’t even have [the equipment] to do women’s hair.” Why would you even think to go to a men’s barber shop as opposed to a salon, unless you were going out of your way to cause a SJW problem and trend on social media?
