This New York Salon REALLY Doesn't Want Hair To Fall In Your Wine

Do you drink when having your hair cut? I do. Getting pissed in the afternoon while being pampered adds to the whole idea my life is, as hoped, a Sex And The City/ Gossip Girl hybrid.

It turns out enough women also enjoy in a wee tipple during a styling session that one New York salon has actually created a wine glass protector to block stray strands from floating their way into your vino. True story.

Thomas Taft Salon NYC

Thomas Taft in the East Village serves wine glasses of booze in beaker style cups to keep all that dead protein out of your Chardonnay AND keep it chilled. Yummy.

"A lot of customers didn't even think about how much hair would fall in their wine in the past, but once they've enjoyed a hair- and worry-free glass with us, they're changed forever," owner Melyssa Hurley told The Gothamist. She added: "You just can't go back to drinking at other salons."

Hmmm. I dunno. Do people really take into account salons' boozing conditions before booking in for a cut these days? Also, a flash poll of friends found that even if their wine was 65% hair, they'd still knock it back. It's a nice idea, Thomas Taft, but, um.... *looks awkwardly to the side*.
