It's already bad to have locally-owned businesses closing, but salons can be community anchors, and their loss is deeper than simply no longer having a neighborhood beauty parlor. Hopefully, the closings will finally get large salons to actively hire stylists who can work with very curly hair. But, being able to walk into your nearest salon and be sure that they can work with your hair no matter its texture still seems a long way off. What do you think the fallout from losing so many community salons will be, and do you think they'll make a comeback?
