Today I went to cut my hair, and the hairdresser told me a weird story.

Yesterday, I had a group of people come to cut their hair. Together, they embodied the one type of hair I hate.
A celebrity came in first, and brightly asked me to trim a bit past the middle.
A player came in next, and pretendedly asked me for a number one.
A glutton grunted at me to ask me to cut off a bit at the front.
Finally, a fellow worker stylishly asked me to cut off everything but the ends.

Can you work out what type of hair she doesn't like?


This story is based on a fictional event and taken from there...

Part of an upcoming metapuzzle

    $\begingroup$ Perhaps 'Theatrically' or 'dramatically' would have been better than 'pretendedly', but apart from that, great puzzle! $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Apr 19 '17 at 6:20
