When Bridgette’s Hairdresser Dresses Me topless, a video of the day
Posted by The Sun on Saturday, August 21, 2019 04:29:49When Bridgettte’s hairdresser dressed her for a fashion show, it was all part of her job to help her customers achieve their ideal look.
But now, the salon she works for is being sued by a former client who claims the hairdressing school she worked at had a “sexist” culture and a “pander” culture.
Bridgette’s husband, Tom, was not there to witness the sex act, but was the first to realise what was happening when he saw her in the mirror.
“It was very clear,” he said.
“The hairdist told me, ‘I’ve never seen you look like this before, and you’re not wearing a wig’.”
Bridgit said the haired woman had a great body and “she was very beautiful”.
But when she left the salon the next day, she was angry, so she took the case to the High Court.
“I don’t think she was looking to impress me, but she was very upset,” he recalled.
“We thought she would be a little upset if we got her back but I think she felt we had no other option.”
Tom says the haider did not like the idea of bridesmaids attending the event, and was worried it would put the salon out of business.
“She was very, very upset because she knew they wouldn’t be able to make the money they would make if they didn’t go topless,” he says.
“They’d be losing the money.”
The haider says her experience was “disgusting” and that she never got the chance to say goodbye to her clients.
“He didn’t do it to me, he did it to other clients,” she said.
She was devastated that he would have to pay for her wedding and she was not able to give her husband a hug.
“That was the most devastating thing that I’ve ever been through,” she says.
The lawsuit is being taken by the National Women’s Legal Service, a women’s legal advocacy organisation.
“Hairdressers should not have to feel ashamed to wear a wig and we should not condone this sort of discrimination against women and girls,” a spokesperson for the organisation said.
Ms Brett told the ABC she had not spoken to her husband since.
“My husband was a very good man,” she laughed.
“And I have to say, I have been very upset about that.”
She said she was glad to have the case settled and hoped it would lead to better practices at the salon.
“This is just the tip of the iceberg,” she added.
