memo: always like your haircut

Last Tuesday, Lauren Newton of Washington, PA went to get her haircut at the home of Monique Reed.

Unfortunately, Ms. Newton didn't like her haircut and complained to her stylist.

Most stylists would respond to a criticism by offering to fix the problem or perhaps not charging the customer.

Not Ms. Reed.

After hearing the complaint, Ms. Reed promptly got a gun and fired two shots: one into the ceiling and the other into Newton's lower back as she fled.

Newton was taken to the hospital and will survive the haircut and the gunshot wound. Reed, on the other hand, has been charged with assault and is being held on $50,000 bond.

really, Monique, I like the whitewalls around my ears and the divot near my cowlick.

after i read this yesterday here on your site, i was listening to the radio while running errands and they had lauren (the one who got shot) on the phone for a brief interview!! maybe it was a joke, but i dont think so. anyhoo, at any rate, i was surprised to even hear about it on the radio and even more surprised how lauren acted. LOL. it was stupid to have her on obviously, but she acted pretty nonchalant about it and said that monique was STILL her friend. LOL!

anyway, even if it wasnt really her--i was still surprised to hear about it on the radio in WI! man, we must be desperate for entertainment here ;)

Glad to hear her back healed enough for an interview.

I wish I had some friends like Monique... she sounds like she a stitch to be around.

btw... did Lauren say whether or not she paid? what was the problem with her haircut?
