Welfare Mom Blows $520


4/25/2012 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Octomom check for $520 for haircutsOctomom Nadya Suleman -- who is pulling in $2,000 month in food stamps thanks to California taxpayers -- spent $520 on a Brazilian blowout, and 2 cuts ... TMZ has learned.

Octo's hairstylist Stephanie tells us ... she went to Octo's house on April 18 to cut her hair and do a Brazilian blowout -- a chemical straightening treatment. Octo owed Stephanie for an earlier haircut, and the grand total came to $520. Octo also paid Stephanie $80 for hair products. Mind you -- Octo wrote the check at a time when she was in dire need of welfare.

Stephanie -- who went to cops yesterday and filed a report claiming the 14 kids were living in squalor -- tells us she couldn't believe Octo was spending this kind of loot on haircuts when her plumbing didn't work. 

Stephanie says a plumber had been to the house recently and told Octo it would cost $150 to fix the pipes, but Octo declined, saying it was too expensive. As a result, the kids have to use portable training toilets in the backyard.

Octomom and the horrible house conditions
By the way, Stephanie also says while she was cutting Octo's hair, the mother of 14 locked her kids in the bedroom. Take a look at the pic -- notice the chair she used to keep the door shut.

9:00 AM PT: Octomom just walked one of her kids to a school bus -- we asked about the giant haircut check, but she had no response. PS -- nice Elmo slippers.

Could she have paid to get her hair done with the $10.000 for topless posing?

Boy she is working it hard!

I don't care how much money this woman has or does not have... Her children are being neglected.

She should have had another inch or two cut off. Her ends look rough.

The hairdresser said she is Octo's "friend" and she "loves" her; and then she not only gives TMZ the information but lets them publish the incriminating cheque.

And CPS found nothing wrong because Octomom is on welfare and nobody on welfare ever loses their kids because that's way too much paperwork

My tax dollars at work, you can't get a plummer to do anything for $150 what does it need a washer......

It is wrong of Nadya to put her hair first, before her own children's needs (plumbing issues)

If she paid 520 dollars for her hair to look like that, she was ripped off though. In my opinion.

god this has to be one of if not the dumbest woman in the world. what a parent she needs mental help and fast. why do your hair nobody wants you. not even your kids. this is only going to get worst for those kids. and it is so sad for them no child should have to go though this.

The sad thing is, this is what happens in most cases.

People on welfare know how to game the system and live a better life than people who actually work for a living.

Umm ok...    

When are people going to wake up and realize that welfare as it stands right now DOES NOT WORK! Handing irresponsible people money does not help children get the care & food they need and it is not a way to lift people out of poverty. Money would be better spent on community centers that provide meals, medical care & job training so that people actually have to show up to get services they say they need. What a frickin joke!
