We've all been there: You go to the hairdresser and your new cut doesn't come out quite how you envisioned. But a 29-year-old San Diego woman took things a bit farther than most would, police say: Three hours after her haircut Wednesday, Adrian Blanche Swain allegedly returned to the 619 Barber Shop with a gun. "The gun had bullets but malfunctioned," a police sergeant tells Fox 5 San Diego. Swain allegedly attempted to pull the trigger three times but the weapon jammed.

Eventually, the barber and one other person managed to get her on the ground and take the gun away from her; she was arrested and faces attempted murder charges. The barber says Swain destroyed her own hair, noting that she returned with a bald spot on one side that was apparently of her own doing. "She messed it up with some straight razors," he tells Fox 5. "She erased everything I did, messed it up with a razor, took it all off ... and then she came in and said 'Look what you did to my hair.'" Oddly, she had originally tipped $20 on the $24 haircut, ABC 10 reports. (More weird crimes stories.)
