BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — An 84-year-old Palm Beach County man is suing Hair Club For Men, alleging that he was provided with a “system” that doesn’t match his existing hair, was too dark, and made him feel “embarrassed.”

Kenneth Mann is seeking at least $8,000 from Hair Club due to the problems and the company’s alleged lack of response. Hair Club for Men is based nationally at 1499 West Palmetto Park Road in Boca Raton. The office in question, according to the suit, is in Delray Beach.

“On my last visit July 6, I was to have a new system installed. When my Stylist brought out the system, it was obviously not the proper system being off in size and color. The Stylist brought it back to a supervisor/manager to question the system but it appears that she was told to use it regardless that it was an improper system. I was totally embarrassed after it was installed with the Stylist making the best of a very poor situation by not making any comments as she was told by management to use it. It’s mind-boggling to be subjected in having them knowingly use an improper system that was made for another person and was used as a substitute as they failed to obtain/order a correct system. This callous attitude toward a long-term client should not be permitted in any circumstances. The cavalier attitude was disgraceful and very unprofessional by management. It should be noted that I was to have a new system on my prior visit six weeks earlier and was so stated on my Membership Summary which I showed but was told it wasn’t due for six more days which was bogus. So, I ended up using the same system for the third time instead of a new system.”

Mann states in his suit that he’s been a member of Hair Club For Men for more than a quarter century, and is upset over the treatment he is now receiving as a longtime member.

“I have been a member of the HM since 12-06-1997 or 25 years (I still have the original contract).
During this time, I have had some minor problems which were quickly resolved. This episode with the Delay HM office is the worse I have ever experienced during my membership. To be insulted, as mentioned in one of my letters to HM, to one of the oldest membership clients doesn’t say a lot for your local HCM office. You should and need to do much better than what was offered to me. It should be noted that I was never extended the courtesy from HM of any reply to my letters of concern. Does this suggest that HCM doesn’t care about its clients?”
