According to the nail association, an employee told them Thomas refused to pay for any of the other services she received, telling CBS2 that altercation could have easily been avoided.

Christina Thomas said she received a botched eyebrow wax at a nail salon in NY, so she refused to pay for it on Friday afternoon. "She went to the owner, she addressed the owner, she said, "Michael, look at my eyebrows.' And when he looked at her eyebrows, he said, 'I will fix them for you.' She's like, 'You can't fix them for me.' She was like, 'I'm not payin" for this".

Police were eventually called to the scene, at which point they reportedly arrested one patron and one of the salon workers.

Huiyue Zheng, 32, was charged with assault and weapon possession, according to police. Both were released pending a court appearance.

Thomas was also charged with a misdemeanor assault.
