A woman has said she was offended after her hairdresser appeared to agree with the suggestion she is not beautiful.

The client wasn’t happy after opening up to her hairdresser, only for her to respond with something that completely stumped her – leaving her feeling rubbish about her looks.

The woman took to Mumsnet to say that she’d been speaking to her hairdresser about online dating and the lack of luck she’d had on there. She was looking for reassurance but got more than she bargained for when her hairdresser was less than encouraging.

On the forum, she wrote: “Short back story, I’m in my late 50’s and have been single six years since my ex-husband cheated and we divorced.

“We were married nearly 30 years and haven’t dated since. I’m happy with my life but am open to another relationship now.

“I was talking to my hairdresser about online dating and I said I’ve never had much luck as I’m fairly plain looking. She replied ‘not every man wants a beautiful woman as they worry another man would try and steal her’.

“On reflection, I’ve read this as whoever dated me wouldn’t have to worry about another man showing interest. Am I being over-sensitive here?”

Are you an Irish hairdresser? I’d love to hear your opinion. Should this self-professed plain Jane be offended? Let me know in the comments!
