My most embarrassing moment


I was presenting a Today’s Special Value for Remington hair clippers and had spent three days in a salon training prior to the launch show. After my training I was confident enough to cut someone’s hair live on air.

Judgement day came and I was introduced to a gorgeous male model whose hair I was about to cut – no one had told him I wasn’t a professional hairdresser!

Everything went smoothly and I gave him a pretty good haircut, if I do say so myself. However, towards the end of the show I was demonstrating the variety of blades and left the safety guard off and shaved a chunk of his hair off!

I couldn’t believe what I had done and started giggling. It didn’t help that the producers where laughing uncontrollably in my ear as well.   

It was only after we had come off air that the model knew about his new haircut! He eventually found the funny side to it.

I don’t think I’ll be let loose with clippers again. Oops!

Love Jill X

    Oh dear, I’m not alone after all! I was cutting my fance’s hair (much to my annoyance, I knew from the start i would end in tears) with a set of electric clippers and it went so wrong!!! He ended up with chunks missing all over his head and I even managed to completely remove one of his beloved sideburns….I didn’t have the courage to finish it properly so we had to get his Mum round to even everything out and get rid of the other sideburn!! He’s been to th hairdressers everytime since! Ooops!
