Derek J is in a hairy situation

Atlanta celebrity hairstylist Derek J is in hot water. A former client alleges he used another client's hair for her weave. Per Radar Online she is suing Derek for $2000.

The woman accusing Derek of wrong doing said in court papers ( obtained by Radar Online) "Back in November, I went to get my hair done [at J Spot Salon]. I had extensions already in my hair, and the expectation was that he would take them out, wash them, and put them back in my hair. After, I did mention to him that I thought it looked a little thin, but he swore up and down that he put all the hair back in, and I never even dreamed that I had completely different hair. To my horror, when I got home, I quickly realized I didn’t have all the hair on my head.”

These allegations are hard to believe. Derek's salon The J Spot often caters to celebrity clients in the posh Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta. If Derek and his staff were shifty one of his high profile clients would have made a statement a long time ago. Also, his Real Housewives of Atlanta friends Kim Zolciak and Kandi Buruss have trusted Derek with their hair for years. Both women had him do her hair for her weddings! A woman would not trust her look on the biggest day of her life to just anyone. I doubt Bravo would knowingly publicize a business that is known for ripping off clients. They have a reputation to protect.

Derek was the subject of a scandal in 2012. It was alleged he was doing hair without a Georgia cosmetology license. Derek's retort was that the state board was taking its time approving his license. Perhaps Dererk's accuser is using this incident to make her point that he is a shady character.

The J Spot has gotten a very good reviews. Perhaps Derek's accuser is just looking for some attention.
