OMG what a night!
Had my apointment at the hair salon with my usual stylist I’ve had for years (Love her) I decide to go blonder and we’re at the point in the apt where I’m sitting at the sink and she’s washing out the hair dye etc…
All of a sudden a bottle from above the sink on a shelf comes crashing down and lands on my face (my eyes were shut) I jump, but was ok, figuring it was just a bump, whatevs… She gasps and grabs a towel for me. I then look down and see its covered in blood. She then exclaims she needs to drive me to the ER. I’m like what???? And ask for a mirror.
She brings the mirror over and I have a good 1 inch gash right above my lip thats gushing blood.
Shes freaking out and I’m trying not to. I call my husband and text him a pic of it and he says im fine and to just go home. I call my rents and they tell me to go to a walk in dr. place.
Anyways. I let her finish my hair with me holding paper towels to my face with ice. The walk in doctors place was really nice and it only took about 30 minutes for them to see me from start to finish.
They super glued my face back together.
Hopefully no scar! The doc said 98% chance. I hope not!
PS I did not pay for my hair and my stylist said she would cover my deductable for sure next time she sees me and that she will have nightmares for weeks cus this was her biggest nightmare come true.
She couldn’t believe how calm I was. Neither am I.
I was hoping this was going to be one of those stories you look back on and laugh but at the moment they really really suck!!!

Keep it outta the sun for atleast a year to help with scaring…put on kids sunscreen, like spf 1 million, and then a big bandaid over the whole thing…Don’t pick at the glue, keep it on as long as possible, and DO NOT put neosporin on top of the glue because that is what we use to take it off…just keep it super dry and clean until it comes off on its own….wait until after the glue falls off and use neosporin and mederma. Also, take a vitamin E capsule, poke a hole in it, and put that on the fresh scar to make it disappear…

I had a mole removed on my neck a few years ago. The tip they gave me is to buy vitamin E gel caps and every morning and night, break one open and rub it on. No one can see the scar but me! I recommend it all the time!

I work in the ER…I’m a scar-be-gone expert!!! lol!!!
Just make SURE it stays outta the sun…it will seriously make the scar way more predominant on your face!!

Wow, that’s crazy! I’m glad you’re okay. I admire how you handled the situation and stayed calm. Not a lot of people would do that. I’m glad the girl at the salon acted so responsibly too.
