Images from a barbershop in China that show a ‘play’ button shaved into a client’s hair have gone viral. The client confused the barber by showing him a paused button that had the triangle-shaped play button visible.

According to reports the client found his perfect haircut whilst watching a video on his phone whilst waiting in the barbershop. During his appointment he then showed the barber the trendy fade. The image he showed him was from a paused video.

However the barber mistakenly thought that the client wanted the triangle (aka the ‘pause/ play’ button) featured in his new look. Apparently when asked if he wanted the triangle included, the client got confused and mistakenly said yes.

Despite the gaff, the barber is being congratulated for his attention to detail as he replicated exactly what he saw in the image.

Images of the haircut and paused video were shared by blogger ‘Tian Xiu Bot’ on China’s Twitter-like platform Weibo on December 30. Watch the video below to see more…

The post has so far received over 20,000 comments and 78,000 likes and was shared over 22,000 times.

The above video shows a close up of the neat triangle. Although it wasn’t what he originally wanted, it seems the client was pleased with the results. He is seen in the video strutting and showing off his new look. Perhaps he has started a new pattern trend…

Have you ever misinterpreted what a client wanted? Have you ever shaved anything unusual or out-there into your client’s hair? Do you think this is the beginning of a new trend?!
