    i was a stylist for 13 years and have worked in all black salons and did only black hair and have worked in mixed salons and did all types of hair. i had my best experience working in the mixed salon. it was more focused on customer service. get them in get them out. i must say i enjoyed the mixed salon so much better.

    I would REALLY love to hear more of your experience. Do you think the article is fair with blaming the natural hair growth with salon decline?

    black hair stylist overbook their appointments.. if you have 30 minute appointments and you have to a full weave, then you know it’s going to take longer and the next appointment is going to have to wait longer. I stop going to the salon years ago, because when I ask for a trim, they cut too much of my hair, also I don’t want to wait all day to get my hair done, when I can do it myself, so I started to go to a white salon, in and out in an hour !!

    In my opinion, it’s more about economics. When money is tight, people cut out luxuries.

    True. DIY movements form out of lack of funds.

    Yes. I didn’t mention the scissor creatures.  That’s one of the horror stories I get.

    I don’t think it’s about the economy at all I think a lot of black women are just fed up with beauticians destroying their hair, not being professional, and just the overall lack of knowledge when it comes to healthy hair care practices.

    i agree with utubeuzername84. i work with alot of sylist and many of them just care about the money. i was glad when i managed a salon, i made sure we were properly educated. some stylist think once they get their licence their done. so not true. products change so much. its so much to learn. no matter how long u been doing hair.

    Some career fields force you to have certain types of continuing training and education to go with the changing times. I wonder if some aspects of it should be that way with salons.

    Yes, the horror stories are there, but I still saw a lot of women endure styling hell and rotate from bad stylist to bad stylist when I was on the hair boards in 2005. Many left the black salons, but during that time, they went to the mixed or Dominicans. I think the economy was the mass tipping point.
