Barbershop Fined $750 for Refusing to Cut a Woman’s Hair

barb  Barbershop Fined $750 for Refusing to Cut a Woman’s Hair barbA Pennsylvania barbershop has been fined $750 for refusing to cut a woman’s hair.  Barbiere advertises itself as a high-end gentlemen’s barbershop and offers complimentary beers and spirits. The Washington barbershop was recently fined by the state’s Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs for gender discrimination.  Owner John Interval tells the (Washington) Observer-Reporter the fine “infringes” on his shop’s environment. Interval says, “Guys come here as a kind of a little getaway, to be around other guys.”  The female customer had booked hair appointments online for herself and her boyfriend. She asked for a short haircut known as a wave but was turned away.  Interval says his staff recommended other shops and even offered to pay for a haircut at someplace else to compensate for the inconvenience.
