Oh deer.

Unsuspecting customers inside a New York hair salon got a shock this past weekend when an errant deer jumped through the front window, smashing glass and sparking startled shrieks from people who scrambled to get out of its way.

In a video posted on Facebook Saturday, a customer is seen seated in a chair getting a haircut while another is sitting on a couch in Be.you.tiful Hair Salon in Long Island, NY.

The video caption said “This just happened,” followed by the deer emoji.

The deer is seen careening through the front window and out of frame towards the back of the salon as a woman’s voice screams “Oh my god! Oh my god!”

One woman asks another woman if she’s okay, while also yelling towards the back of the salon to close the door.

Then the screaming begins again, as the deer stumbles back into the surveillance camera’s frame, a hair iron dangling from its antlers.
