Unsatisfied over haircut
According to a hairdresser to did the haircut on the woman named Nok, she complained that her hair was cut too short. The hairdresser then suggested that she go to another outlet to get it fixed, which she readily agreed.
On the day of the tragedy, Nok came back to the salon with her husband Pop and their 8-year-old daughter not to see a hairdresser, but the owner.
It was later revealed by Nok’s father that before the incident, the owner had allegedly uttered vulgarities at her on the phone, thus prompting her to settle the score with him at the salon.
