Tonight, an Auckland hair salon says their prices will increase if parents bring in “screaming” children.

In a post on Facebook, HAIR Salon in Bucklands Beach said screaming, rolling on stools, ripping magazines, and “treating out property like a playground” are prohibited behaviours.

RadioLIVE’s Mitch Harris argues that the salon can’t change the price after-the-fact.

“I think it’s a bit over-the-top,” Harris says on Night Talk.

If salon customers are unable to control their children, the salon says it will increase their bill.
