Lady reveals that barbers require consent letters from a woman’s husband or boyfriend before cutting her hair

by CheCheblogs

Nigerian lady have made a revelation that barbers would ask for a letter of consent from a woman’s partner or male relative before they agree to cut her hair

The lady @eketiette said the practice began when a soldier arrested everyone in the barber’s saloon after his wife got a haircut without his permission.

Her tweet reads thus

Man strolls into barbershop. Gets haircut, pays 1,500 naira, leaves.

Woman strolls into barbershop, is asked to pay 2,500 naira for same haircut, plus present letter of consent from husband or boyfriend.

In Uyo, I was told the practice of asking for a letter of consent began when a soldier arrested everyone in the barbershop where his wife had her haircut.

The request for a letter/note also happens in Enugu and some parts Lagos. I don’t know the reason(s) though.

Other twitter users confirmed that it is a common practice in some parts of the country.
