Video: Woman's hair weave stops bullet!!!!
Who needs body armor when you got a hair weave? A Missouri woman is thanking her hairstylist for saving her life after her gun-toting ex-boyfriend allegedly shot at her. She survived the attack with just a headache after one of the rounds was stopped by her hair weave.
"In the back of my head, it was like bam! That's how it felt. It was hot, you could feel it," 20-year-old Briana Bonds said.
The police found the spent slug tangled in her hair, and say her weave prevented it from penetrating her skull.
"I've been wearing it for years. I've invested a lot of money into this weave. It saved my life. It saved my life," Bonds said.
The shooting happened as Bonds was pulling into a convenience store. She said she saw her former boyfriend parked nearby but didn't realize he was about to open fire. As she started to drive away, she said her ex, Juan Kemp, walked up to her car and started shooting.
"One of [the bullets] hit the back of my head. Luckily, it didn't go through because the back of my wig. My wig had stopped it. It was hanging in my hair. It was about this small, scrunched up."
