*Editor’s Note: Something that hairstylists and beauty professionals seem to love–along with doing hair and making the world a more beautiful place–is to travel. This study from Solitaire Bliss made us chuckle. We don’t necessarily consider these actions “naughty” but maybe you do? 

Traveling through LAX or John Wayne Airport this summer? Watch out…you’ve got some badly behaved travelers coming your way.

Solitaire Bliss surveyed Americans about the bad travel behaviors they exhibit — and have witnessed others exhibit — while at an airport or on a plane. Americans were asked a variety of questions in every state to determine where residents are most and least guilty of committing naughty travel habits.
