In The News: Hair Salon Exclusively For Plus-Size Women


Check this article out:
The Daily Mail reports that Brown has opened Hair By Bashar, a salon that caters to overweight clients who've previously felt uncomfortable or discriminated against in mainstream salons.
"Increasingly, larger women were telling me how they hate going to the salon because they are filled with slim, glamorous women," Brown explained. "For them, it feels the same as walking into a gym full of ultra-fit people. They feel like everyone is staring at them."

So, I get what the owner is doing, I really do but...I am seriously starting to feel that the more resources we have in this world the more division we start to have. Hair boards have individuals separated by curl pattern. Then there is the length separation and don't forget color treated ladies go here and color free ladies go there. I know that we all have different hair needs but I hate feeling like my question or post will be shunned if I post in the wrong board. I have gotten great hair tips from many individuals both natural and relaxed with varying textures and length. Sigh....just a rant.

What are your thoughts on this?

  1. "I am seriously starting to feel that the more resources we have in this world the more division we start to have." -- This is so, so, true, in many areas. It seems like more and more people are dividing into more and more desperate entities.

  2. I saw this article, too, and thought it was a joke.

    I can imagine that the plus-size salon will soon be divided into to "big," "thick," and "fat" cliques.

    And does this mean slim women aren't allowed? Will they be shunned? And wouldn't that mean the oner loses out on money?

    A mess all around.
