The Real Cost of Your Weave: Scissor-Wielding Thieves Stealing Women’s Hair

Maracaibo, a coastal Venezuelan city, has a piranha problem. No, not the flesh-eating fish found in some South American rivers or in low budget horror flicks. ‘Piranhas’ refer to the thieves that have been increasingly attacking women robbing them for their …. hair???

1 Corinthians 11:15 refers to a woman’s hair as her crown and glory and the piranhas are stealing more than just ‘hair’ when they snip the women’s tresses.

“You have to see it to believe it,” Maracaibo resident Egmari Villarreal said in a video posted on the Panorama newspaper’s website. “We’re not going to be able to have long hair anymore. As a woman, this is something traumatic.”(CNN)

Sarai Madrid, also a resident of Maracaibo, said she has seen the piranhas robbing women throughout the city, especially in places where you will find a lot of young women; places like the beach, mall, or downtown.

For the piranhas it is a quick and easy job to get top dollar for natural human hair to feed an industry in hair and beauty products worth a reported half a trillion dollars.

“The thieves grab them by the hair, pull out some scissors and cut their hair. Then they sell it at beauty or hair salons.”

Mariana Rodriguez told CNN affiliate Globovision that she was walking through a popular mall when she saw two women coming toward her.

“I thought they were going to steal my cell phone, because I had it in my hand at the time, but they took out scissors,” she said. “They did not give me a chance to think or to run or anything. And when I looked, I no longer had any hair.”

At least one similar attack has also been reported in the neighboring Colombian city of Barranquilla. Arlen Luna told CNN that she was wearing her hair in a braid when attacked and by the time she realized what happened, the thieves sped off with about 20 centimeters (8 inches) of hair.

It is hard to tell what is worse?  The actual piranha (fish), the piranhas (thieves), or the rabid appetite of women for hair ?
