A Truly Bad Hair Day When most people get a bad haircut, they usually just hide until their hair grows out. But one woman in Richland, Wash., used a different strategy. She returned to the salon and demanded her money back -- at the point of a gun. Police say she then shot out the back window of her stylist's car. The stylist was not in the car. Finally, she went to a different salon, told them she had a bad haircut and asked for a trim. No word on whether the hair repair was done before she was arrested.
