One woman claims that a salon totally botched her hair three weeks before her wedding.

In a series of TikTok videos, a bride-to-be named Catherine Batista (@cat_batista) detailed the horrible experience she had at a salon just three weeks before her wedding.

She explained that she had been getting a special Japanese straightening treatment on her hair in Brazil, where her grandma lives, biannually for the last two years. But because of her upcoming wedding, she didn't have time to take the trip.

Instead, she opted for a salon closer to where she lives in Boston, Mass.

"It seemed weird from the beginning," Catherine said of the experience, claiming that the salon worker who performed her treatment applied it differently than what she was used to and left it on her hair almost twice the amount of time. However, she didn't want to undermine the worker's expertise so she didn't say anything.

After the treatment was washed out, the salon worker started combing through Catherine's hair and it began falling out in clumps.

"My entire head of hair was basically laying on the floor, like 50 to 70 percent of my hair," Catherine said.

Not to mention that her scalp faced some major damage. "All of the top of my head is completely fried," she said while crying in a video.

Catherine, in a bind to remedy her hair before her big day, explained that she had looked into extensions, but her hair was so damaged that stylists didn't know if they could make it work. She ended her video claiming she was probably going to have to wear a wig to her wedding.
