Noted hairstylist Jawed Habib has apologised for his act of spitting on the head of a woman customer .  Jawed Habib, who hails from a family of hairstylists who served as part of the Mogul royal retinue, spit on one Puja Gupta while combing her hair. The video went viral and this became a huge embarrassment for the hairstylist. A day after the video went viral, Habib apologised.

Pooja Gupta, on whose hair Jawed Habib spat, posted the  video and said she felt humiliated at this act. "I am Baraut and I run a beauty salon. I recently attended a seminar by Jawed Habib sir. He invited me to the stage for a haircut and misbehaved with me. He showed that if you do not have water, you can use saliva to cut hair. I did not get the haircut. I will rather get a haircut from the barber in my neighbourhood but not Javed Habib."

The original video in which Habib was seen spitting, he was also heard saying that if there was a scarcity of water, he could spit on the head and wet the hair. Then he also added: Is thuk mein jaan hai (there is power in this spit). After this video became viral, the National Commission of Women (NCW) wrote to the Delhi Police Commissioner and asked him to the.

In a video posted on the Instagram, Jawed said he was sorry. "Some words spoken by me during my seminar have hurt people. I just want to say one thing....that these are professional workshops. They are attended by people from our profession. When these sessions get very long, we have to make them humorous. If you are hurt, I apologise from the bottom of my heart. Please forgive me, I'm sorry, he said.
