Where do you get your hair “did?” Is it some fancy ritzy place or do you go to a hood salon?

Hood salons are so fun, but they can be kind of a drag sometimes too. Not sure whether or not your salon qualifies as hood? If you can identify with five or more of these signs, then you must admit that your salon is hood!

    According to this article, I get my hair “did” at a hood salon. My salon in Flatbush does every single thing on the list.

    I haven’t been to a salon in years, but the one I used to go to fits every one of the criteria perfectly. I dunno bout others, but my salon was always moving to a new location. at one point they were on top of a fish joint. they’re doing well now

  • Heheheheheh

    Yep, that use to be me spending my whole saturday at a salon. Now I’m transitioning to my natural hair and I spend less time on my hair.

    The last time I was at a salon all day was my last time! That ish is ridiculous!!

  • Allie

    Oh no, i’m in the salon for less than 3 hours, i’ve got other things to do than to be sitting up there all day

  • StarLite

    This is why I do my own hair. LOL

    ……………am I the only one that’s never had their hair done at a salon? Call me insane, but I’ve never even sat in a salon chair before. My hair doesn’t require much maintenance so…maybe that’s why?

    once upon a time i had a hairdresser that smoked while she did your hair…that same salon had burglar bars all over the place and you couldnt walk in , someone had to identify you and unlock the door.
    Another beautician i went to ate all of the time, took a bite to eat between every curl and then had the nerve to move her non paying mom in front of her paying customers. Both were very skilled…. im natural now and i dont miss anything about the salon
