A Los Angeles hairstylist is getting a lot of support after protection footage demonstrated how she are dealing with a client who disrespected her assistant.
Sharon Spellman was doing a simple root touch-up job on a longtime client, Robin, when she mentioned that her brand-new aide would be finishing it up.
Despite this being a common practice in hair salons, Robin took issue with the turn of events, conveying as much in a extremely insulting manner.
“She basically told me,’ Sit your ass down, you’re going to do my hair when I tell you to do it, ’” Spellman said in an Instagram Live after the video ran viral.
The video itself testifies Spellman going out of her lane to reassure Robin that her aide is highly trained and will do a great job helping out.
“It’s me, I would never do anything to construct you uncomfortable, ” the stylist says, deterring a playful tone in an attempt to diffuse the situation.
Robin, nonetheless, threatens to leave halfway through the session, which Spellman doesn’t take lightly.
“You have half your colouring on, and you’re going to talk to me like that? ” she requests. “Robin! ”
As Robin becomes increasingly agitated, Spellman again questions her not to speak so disrespectfully, at which point Robin makes a blatantly threatening move toward her, as if she’s going to hit her over the disagreement.
“Robin, get the f* ck out, ” Spellman says, immediately ushering her client out of the chair.
Robin, bewildered at the relevant recommendations that her actions have consequences, makes a few attempts to apologize so as to get Spellman to finish up her hair after all. But this stylist wasn’t interested in Robin’s disrespect toward her helper and was clearly done trying to reason with her after a threat of physical violence.

After the video ran viral, Spellman went on Instagram Live to clarify that she had had issues with Robin treating people in her salon disrespectfully in the past.
“She has been my patron for like a year and a half, two years now. And she was the client in the store, prior to the opening of me working at the shop, that was getting passed around because no one could manage her energies, ” she said. “She would sometimes various kinds of be out of line towards other people in the store, and I would look at her, and I would be like,’ Robin, that’s not very nice. We can’t talk to people that way.’”
But Spellman said that with her assistant, Alex, she felt that Robin’s disrespect spanned the line into racism.
“She judged her from the jumping, ” she said, recalling other days Robin seemed to be making insulting statements about minorities, specifically Mexican people.
Spellman, in part, captioned the video on Instagram, “ROBIN IS THE NEW KAREN Y’ALL.”
Spellman’s handling of the situation was largely commended by tribes online, who couldn’t belief Robin had the boldnes to speak to these women in such a manner, specially while expecting to be served.

“I do not condone racism, violence, or disrespect !!!! ” Spellman wrote alongside the video. “I understand people are going through their own adversities but, WE ALL ARE! That is not an excuse to treat others inadequately !!! ”
Robin has reportedly been banned from the shop since the incident.
