A HAIRDRESSER has revealed how one client left her extensions in for nine months, causing actual mould to grow among the matted locks.
Extensions specialist Ester Yuabova couldn’t believe her eyes, or nose, when she found the knotty mess, including mould, that had taken over the back of the customer’s head – and it stunk.

New York-based Ester says the ordeal was “easily one of the most mortifying things that I’ve ever experienced.”
After having their hair extensions in for nine months, the client’s hair was completely clumped together, and it looked like the only solution would be to cut the matted chunks out.
But the hair pro decided to try to save the situation and spent hours detangling the disaster.
The sort of extensions the client had should stay in your hair for a maximum of six months, but they had been left in for nine.
The hair was such a mess that it had even started to grow mould and had visible chunks of dirt in it.
Ester pleaded with her viewers: “You have to make sure you brush your hair!”
The mould build-up was so disgusting, “The smells still haunts my dreams.” The stylist said.
It took over three hours to detangle the mess, after she broke the massive clump off into smaller pieces, Ester was able to slowly get the hair back to normal.
“Anyone else would’ve cut this right off.” The pro stylist said about the disaster.
Once the hair had been brushed out and washed, it looked unrecognisable.
Viewers couldn’t believe how bad the it was: “I can’t imagine not noticing this on my own head. The itching… the smell…”
“I hope she paid you well for your amazing service. Anyone else would’ve cut that sh*t off,” a second commented.
Another quipped: “Please tell me you got a good tip!”
