Junior Matewos Tuge returns to senior Sunjay Bista for a maintenance trim, unknowing what tragic accident would soon occur.

Happy to give his friends and family the freshest cuts available, senior Sunjay Bista has been cutting hair for over a year now. From maintenance trims to taper fades, Bista has had numerous happy, returning customers throughout his career. However, on Mar 18., Bista’s haircutting journey was cut short when a seemingly typical hair-cutting session went horribly wrong. 

The day started off normal with junior Matewos Tuge visiting Bista to get a simple maintenance trim. Tuge trusted Bista’s abilities since Bista had cut his hair on 24 previous occasions, however this time, Bista left Tuge rethinking his decision. In a previous interview, Bista stated that he loved “talking to [clients] about what’s going on in their life,” however, this habit caused him to be distracted during Tuge’s session and the client to be left with irreparable damage. 

As every professional barber and client knows, the right tools, such as clippers, high-quality razors, and scissors, are necessary to ensure a haircut is safe and lovable. While Bista has largely kept this standard in the past, a single mistake on Mar. 18 vastly changed his position as WJ’s barber. 

“[Bista] forgot to put the guard on the clippers while cutting my guideline and the pain was unbearable. I think I’m gonna be scarred for the rest of my life,” Tuge said.

While Bista accepts the accident as his fault and is incredibly apologetic to Tuge, he has chosen to stop giving haircuts until his skills are fully perfected and he feels comfortable enough to cut hair again. 

“[Bista] should rethink ever cutting anyone else’s hair again,” Tuge said.
