A woman caused public debate after a photo of her draping her hair over her seat on a flight went viral. The picture of the unidentified woman was shared by social media user Anthony, a few days ago.
Judging from his caption, Anthony was sitting behind the modern-day Rapunzel as he asked his followers, “Would this piss you off?”

Within minutes, Anthony’s hair-raising image had racked up almost 30K likes 16K retweets, sparking public debate.
Etiquette experts said the woman’s actions were as inappropriate as brushing one’s hair at the dinner table. Several women with long hair said she was being unnecessary and could have swept her hair to the front or tied it up.
A few poked fun of the hair-raising situation and said they would easily take a pair of scissors and rectify matters.
The behaviour seems to be a common habit by some women as one of the responses on Anthony’s post suggests. Another user shared a video where an irate passenger messed up a woman’s hair. In the video, the woman draped her hair over her seat. The passenger behind her sticks a number of sweets and gum in the woman’s hair.
