A woman in her 20s who tried to use an old worthless 500- yuan Kuomintang Republic of China banknote to pay a 300- yuan ($43) bill for styling, hair extensions and other services at a beauty salon in Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province on February 2, had her new hairdo "taken back" by the stylist instead.

The unidentified woman said she filched the antique money from her father's closet, and thought it was a "foreign" bill that could be exchanged at a bank for yuan. The hair stylist refused to take it and called police who also failed to dissuade her from trying to pay with it.

The cops took her to her home where her father said he was too poor to pay for her new hairdo.

So the stylist agreed to remove the young woman's hair extensions and keep them to use on a paying customer.
