Barber Fined for Not Cutting Woman's Hair


Washington, Pa--A Pennsylvania barber got slapped with a fine for refusing to give a woman a haircut.

The barbiere in Washington, which is just outside of Pittsburgh, doesn't just give men a haircut. The owner John Interval says his shop is a place for men to relax with a cocktail or a beer. But now, he's facing legal action from the state's Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs.

Interval says he didn't know he has to service both genders.

"Paperwork started showing up and I'm like 'Oh my God," Interval explained. 'I didn't really consider it so much a discrimination thing as it's a barbershop, you know.'

According to Interval, he will respect the law and pay the $750 fine.
