CHILLICOTHE, OH (WTTE/FOX) - A female salon manager said a customer punched her in the face because he was unhappy with his haircut.

The 24-year-old, who wished to remain anonymous, is still recovering from what she described as a closed-fist punch Saturday.

"Physically, I'm fine, but emotionally, I'm overwhelmed and stressed," the woman said.

The victim said it started when another stylist called to help correct a haircut given to 49-year-old Jimmy Nguyen.

Before she could grab her scissors, fists were flying.

Chillicothe police arrested Nguyen as he was spotted walking through this parking lot near the salon after the attack.

The salon manager is back to work and said she's staying strong.
