Women’s Commission Reacts After Hairstylist Jawed Habib Spits On A Woman’s Head

One of the most popular hair stylists Jawed Habib is the man who revolutionized hair cutting in India by opening a chain of salons. But now it seems like he has invited some unexpected trouble. A video of celebrity hairstylist Habib spitting on a woman’s hair during a workshop has gone viral on social media. 

In the viral video, Jawed Habib can be seen using his saliva as he was parting the hair of the woman and said, “Agar Pani ki Kami Ho To Is Thook Mein Jaan Hai” . There were instant reactions from the audience which, however, turned into thunderous applause.

Further, according to media reports, the video surfaced after the conclusion of a training seminar in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar. And after the video went viral, the lady who has been sitting and facing all this is identified as Pooja Gupta. 

According to the reports of Hindustan Times, talking about the incident, Pooja stated, “My name is Pooja Gupta, I run a parlor named Vanshika beauty parlor and am a resident of Baraut. I attended Javed Habib sir’s seminar yesterday. He had invited me for a haircut on stage and he misbehaved a lot. He was showing if you do not have water you can use your spit as well. I did not get my haircut done. I would get my haircut from any local shop but never from Jawed Habib.”

After a while, the National Commission of Woman (NCW) on 6 January took to Twitter to say that its chairperson Rekha Sharma had written to the UP Director General of Police (DGP) should seek action in this regard.

And after going through a backlash, the hairstylist took to his social media and apologized. In his apology video, Jawed Habib said that such things are often done with a “humorous” intent during workshops. However, he was sincerely sorry if someone was hurt because of this.

“Some words spoken by me during my seminar have hurt a few people. I just want to say one thing these are professional workshops, as in, they are attended by people from within our profession. When these sessions get very long, we have to make them humorous. What can I say? If you are truly hurt, I apologize from the bottom of my heart. Please forgive me, I am sorry,” Jawed Habib can be heard saying in the video.
