A hotel in India’s capital Delhi will be paying millions of rupees in compensation to a model for giving her a wrong haircut as per judicial commission orders.

It was reported that she went to the salon in ITC Maurya hotel back in 2018 and asked for her hair to have long flicks which covers her face in the front and at the back along with four-inch straight hair trimmed from the bottom.

They did not follow her instructions and cut her hair more than she had asked for.

She raised the matter with the management who offered a free of cost hair treatment. It proved to be a case of medical negligence as it burned her scalp and caused severe irritation.
