Hairstylists may be able to help their clients go from drab to fab, but as one Kentucky man found out, what they can’t do is turn back biological processes.
Jeffery Trent, 46, was arrested in late November for allegedly causing a disturbance inside a hair salon after an employee told him that she did not have a product that would help to grow his hair back.
According to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun, Trent, whose hair color is listed as “BALD” in police records, entered the Frame Clinic and Gallery in Lawrenceburg on November 24 and asked for a product “to bring his hair back.” When he was told that a product like that was not available, he “became belligerent and created a disturbance inside the business.”
Trent was arrested on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge and booked into a county detention center, according to the report. He is currently still behind bars for unrelated arson and criminal mischief charges, as well as for violating a protective order, reports The Smoking Gun.
Earlier this year, a dating site specifically targeted for bald people and those who love them debuted after its creator found out about “hatfishing,” where bald people would wear hats in profile pictures so other users would not see that they are hairless.
"Being bald can be very hard for some people and they lose their self-confidence. Bald Dating was created to show that being bald doesn't matter," the site's description reads. "There are many people who don't mind you being bald and there are even others who prefer it."
In order to join the dating site, users either have to be bald themselves or be open to dating a bald person.
David Minns, the creator of Bald Dating, is also behind a dating app that only pairs people with a minimum 20-year age difference between them.
