A young woman has posted a Tiktok video showing the moment she was locked inside a hair salon by herself after her hairdresser walked out halfway through the appointment.

Eloise Wright asked her followers on TikTok what she should do after realising she had been left alone in the salon.

She filmed herself sitting and spinning on a salon chair with dark dye in her hair and no one in sight to assist.

“I have been left in the hair salon because the stylist has just gone, she’s gone,” Ms Wright said.

A UK woman made a video on TikTok about being locked in a salon alone with dye in her hair.

“She told me to come in at 3pm to put my colour on, which she did, and then she was here with her friends.”

Before being left alone she was told "someone else" would wash the dye off for her, however that didn't go to plan.

“Please tell me why everyone else in the salon has left and locked the doors behind them?” Ms Wright said.

“I’m now just sat here, with a timer on my phone and no one to wash my colour off.”

The video received more than 320,000 views, with people sharing their thoughts on the situation.

One person said: "The health and safety issue of being locked in the salon stresses me out. How did they think this was ok?"

"I would wash it off by myself, fill my bag up with products and leave," another added.

It is unclear how long the customer was left in the salon by herself, but not long after Ms Wright recorded a follow-up video explaining what happened next.

The video showed another hairdresser washing the dye out, however the woman was then seen blow-drying her own hair.

The customer recorded a follow-up video on Tiktok of the hairdresser washing her hair, but being forced to blow-dry it herself.

'Unprofessional' say others

Some people on TikTok blasted the incomplete service Ms Wright received.

"Hope you didn’t pay, you shouldn’t have to, they sound unprofessional," one person said.

"If this is real...name and shame," another said.

Though others didn't buy the story, suggesting she worked at the salon.
