xQc almost breaks Twitch TOS while getting a haircut

Popular Twitch streamer Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is all about creating entertaining highlights for his fans - and he even managed to pull off some moments of magic while getting a haircut.

The former professional Overwatch player has mixed in some in-real-life (IRL) streaming to his rotation of streams, and while they aren’t a regular thing, xQc’s IRL broadcasts always have at least one moment that is bound to go viral.

That was no different on March 25, when he took his viewers along with him to a hair salon, to watch him get a haircut and have his hair dyed a different color.

The former Overwatch pro usually streams from his bedroom but will now and again take his stream outside.

While the whole thing may seem a little innocuous, the three-hour-long stream provided plenty of laughs and a even few brushes with the Twitch rules.

IRL streams are usually prime hunting grounds for stream snipers. As expected, xQc ran into a stream sniper of his own.

However, it came in the form of his YouTube editor, who repeatedly messaged him despite Felix’s request for them to stop. After a further message was received, the phone that xQc was using to stream on fell down - taking the camera off the streamer.

Things also took a not safe for work turn when xQc’s stylist introduced a colleague to the stream. After being shocked by the number of people watching the broadcast, she jokingly asked if she could ‘flash her breasts’ on camera.

However, xQc, who wanted no part of a possible Twitch terms of service violation on his channel, immediately replied: “no, no, no!”

Celebrating his haircut, the streamer treated himself to a McDonalds lunch, but, in typical xQc fashion, things didn't go all too smoothly.

After he had finished eating his round of fast food, his chat pressured him into cleaning up his mess instead of leaving it for a worker. As he attempted to place his trash in the bin - while holding his phone to stream - xQc poured the remains of his drink all over the floor.

It's another classic IRL stream, almost as good as when the former Overwatch pro streamed his first gym session back in February, where his viewers couldn’t stop laughing as he struggled through the pain.

While getting a simple haircut didn't match the hilarity levels of him taking on an intense gym session, or being stream sniped by a viewer wanting a free sub, xQc may want to avoid streaming from the hair salon again if he's going to run close in breaking Twitch's TOS.
