NEW YORK, July 24 (UPI) -- A New York City postal worker allegedly "went postal" in a Manhattan salon after employees took too long perfecting her new hairdo.

Rachel Meyers allegedly went to the Century 27 Beauty Salon while she was on her break for a "set and wet," a treatment that is usually done after taking out a weave.

The 26-year-old reportedly got upset after a knot was left in her hair for an extended period of time and flipped out.

"She switched. She went postal," salon manager Ravi Ramirez told the Daily News. "We all tried to make her feel comfortable, but she started shouting."

The suspect is accused of throwing a curling iron stand at a stylist after her fiancé's attempt to calm her down failed. It ended up striking a 52-year-old victim, "causing a laceration, bruising, and substantial pain in her knee," the Smoking Gun reported.

When all was said and done, the interior of the salon was in shambles.

"Everything turned into a ruckus. Everyone turned into animals," Ramirez said.

Meyers was charged with misdemeanors including assault, harassment, and criminal possession of a weapon.
