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.

Police were called to a Kansas City market at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.  Arriving officers found the 20-year-old woman there. She told police she had pulled into the market and saw a man with whom she had recently ended an eight-month relation with inside a car, A second man came up to the woman’s window and told her that the ex-boyfriend still loved her, Kansas City police said.

The woman told the second man, “I don’t love him.”

At that time, the victim heard gunshots and saw her ex-boyfriend walking toward the back of her car firing a handgun, police said. The victim sped away in her vehicle as her back window shattered, police said. She returned to the scene a moment later to witness both men leaving in their vehicle.

Officers found a bullet in the woman’s hair and said her tightly-woven weave stopped the bullet. The victim was not harmed.

The ex-boyfriend and the second suspect were both taken into custody a short time later.
