This wasn’t the cut he had in mind.
A Brooklyn barbershop customer’s face was sliced open after his stylist shoved him through a plate glass window Thursday afternoon, police said.
The bloody 3 p.m. scene at the Levels Barbershop on Nostrand Ave. in Crown Heights unfolded because the victim, 33, was unhappy about his haircut, witnesses said.
He threatened to withhold payment, enraging his barber, who allegedly shoved him through one of the store’s front windows.
“He didn’t see the push coming,” said Free Small, 39, another barber at the shop. “All his body weight went through the window.”
Small didn’t believe the barber meant to hurt the man.
“You don’t know how bad a situation is going to get before you even react,” he said “And even though you ain’t mean to do it, it’s done.”
The shove launched the customer forward through the window. He stayed upright, but the glass ripped his face open.
“I said ‘Get over here, this guy’s bleeding!” said Donald Romelus, 40, who also a barber. Small and Romelus rushed to get towels to stop the blood flow.
The stylist who gave the man the heave-ho ran off.
Small and Romelus both insisted they didn’t know his name or how to reach him.
“I would have fixed the dude’s hair for him for free. Especially if I knew it was going to be a problem.” Small said. “I think it’s a learning experience for everybody. Communication is key.”
Medics took the victim to Kings County Hospital.
