​Woman Calls For Strict Hair Policy After Woman's Bun Ruins Screening Of 'Frozen 2'

​Woman Calls For Strict Hair Policy After Woman's Bun Ruins Screening Of 'Frozen 2'

A cinema-goer was left fuming after a fellow guest's huge pineapple bun blocked her view of a film during a recent trip to the movies.

Ellie Hensby had taken her children to watch Frozen 2 at Vue in Meadowhall, Sheffield but says she was unable to see any of the film due to the "inconsiderate" hairstyle of the lady sitting in front.

She is now calling for the cinema chain to enforce a strict "hairstyle policy".

Ellie, 28, had decided to treat her two children to the showing last week and had just settled down to watch the 1 hour, 43 minute film when she realised she had "absolutely no chance" of seeing anything thanks to the "giant with a huge bun" in the next row.

Despite the Disney box office smash hitting screens back in November, Ellie claims the cinema was "rammed" and she was unable to move seats.

Disgruntled after the film had ended, she took to social media to complain to Vue, hilariously urging it to enforce a "hairstyle policy". Sounds like a good idea tbh.

"Surely there's got to be a policy on how people should wear there [sic] hair when they come to the pictures? & you need more height between your seats!

"A small person with a giant with a double head in front of them have absolutly [sic] no chance of seeing anything in your cinemas [sic]."

Not everyone agreed, however, with some Facebook users asking Ellie whether she had tackled the issue, by asking the guest to take her hair down.

Ellie replied: "I didn't [say anything] she was already stressed from her kids jumping and climbing all over the seats.

"I doubt she would have been happy to take her hair down anyway when she looked like she had spent a long time getting ready."

Ellie, from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, added: "I had to sit extremely uncomfortably just so I could see some of the film so I was really annoyed that someone would wear their hair like that and not consider how it would effect the person sat behind them.

"It could have been a child sat in my seat and they wouldn't have stood a chance of seeing any of the film at all.

"She was really tall and I'm really short, which obviously couldn't be helped, but her hairstyle was a choice and one that stopped me enjoying the film I was there to see with my two children.

"I think people just need to be more considerate towards others and not only care about how they look.

"That's why I complained - to make others aware that if you wear such a huge hairstyle to the pictures you're likely to hinder someone's view and that's just not fair.

"Half of the problem was also the fact that there wasn't much height between the levels of seats, if there would have been more height difference between them I'd have stood a chance of seeing the screen over her big bun." [sic]

With people quick to quip back, Ellie defended herself explaining she'd simply asked Vue whether they had a hairstyle policy in place on how big you should wear your hair.

She said: "I don't think they do but could do with it when there's people as inconsiderate as this.

"If this post makes at least one person think twice about going to the pictures with a bun as big as their head on top of their head then I would say this post has done a bit of good."

Many commented that enforcing a hairstyle policy in cinemas just wasn't practical though.

Nat Gibson wrote: "You can't tell someone how to wear their hair. Granted it wasn't a sensible style for the cinema, but come on."

Samantha Robinson commented: "Can't refuse someone in the cinema because of a hair style."

And when social media users suggested she should have simply moved seats instead of complaining on Facebook, Ellie claimed she was unable to, due to the cinema being full.

Ellie said: "I didn't ask her to move her hair and seeing as though there were no seats left in the cinema I had no choice but to stay put or ruin my kids day by leaving all together, which wasn't going to happen.

Another blasted Ellie for 'publicly shaming' the woman, so she hit back claiming she was simply trying to raise awareness of the situation.

Ellie said: "I've taken a picture of the back of someone's head to try and raise awareness and have consideration for other people who are also trying to watch the film behind you."

"That's what's wrong with the world today... selfish people like you who thinks that's ok."

Despite most people disagreeing with her, Ellie refused to back down and delete the post.

Ellie said: "I certainly wasn't going to be patronised into deleting anything because a bunch of narrow-minded idiots didn't agree with what I said, I'll always give as good as I get."

Who knew Frozen 2 could be the cause of so much drama?

Vue declined to comment.
