The weave workers at a snooty NYC salon must not have realized they were applying pony hair to the scalp of one half of Bonnie and Clyde the other day, because they overcharged her (according to Faye Dunaway) and she blew a gasket. Don’t they know screen legends pay with their presence?!
Page Six says that Faye went to Marie Robinson Salon in Manhattan for a touch-up hair extension visit and lost her shit when they didn’t recognize they were in the presence of greatness and charged her the full $3,000 bill. How DARE they! Faye may blurt out the wrong Best Picture winner at the Oscars, but it doesn’t take a genius to see that’s a far cry from Supercuts weave prices. And a source says she was more than willing to let them know how she felt:
“She claimed she didn’t know it was that expensive and then said, ‘I’m not paying that. I can’t believe how expensive this is. I’m only paying half!’… they took her half, but staff explained, ‘You’re going to have to pay the rest.’ And Faye stormed out screeching, ‘This is ridiculous!’ Everyone in the salon was aghast … Her hair looked great — so she should pay!”
I like Faye’s line of thinking. Every time my bill at Whole Foods is $24,890,539 (for 2 items), I’m going to scream at the cashier, “This is OUTRAGE! I’m only paying a sixth!”
Faye has already been labeled a menace to the skies in the past, so the terror transition to haircare shouldn’t be all that shocking. A source clearly on Team Faye (as we all should be or else risk the wrath of Mommie Dearest) said she got the full she-bang extension installation on a prior visit, so it seemed a little weird to get charged all over again when the visit was specifically booked for touch-ups. Faye, clearly channeling her role as the smarmy therapist in the The Thomas Crown Affair reboot, even told Page Six her thoughts on the matter:
“I’d prefer you not run that. I’ve now paid the whole thing — but I will not be going back there because it is not the price they said it would be. So, I don’t know what to say to you except I didn’t throw a fit. I was just very alarmed at the amount they were charging me for the very small amount of hair work that they did.”
The salon didn’t have anything to say on the matter, likely licking their wounds realizing LEGENDS will no longer cross through the door and they’ll just get stuck applying teal goat hair to Kylie Jenner if they ever want to show up in a copy of Us Weekly ever again. In the meantime, Faye should probably scour Jersey City Craigslist to find a hair extension extraordinaire in a more acceptable price bracket. It works for me!
