“Your Way Salon” Flier

5 October 2009 2 Comments

Who says the entrepreneurial spirit of the black community is dead?


You don’t need a computer, typewriter, or fancy sign from Kinkos to go into business. You also don’t need a command of punctuation mark usage or capital letters. All you need to do is hit the streets with whatever you’ve got, and you’re in the hair business! I had to know – what exactly is “8 Braids” and “8 Extensions?” In a fit of investigative journalism/instigation-driven mocking, I called the number on the flier (I removed it from the photo for this post) pretending to be interested in an appointment. The stylist informed me that 8 braids means 8 cornrows going straight back, likewise for 8 extensions, just with hair added. Not seven. Not nine. Just eight.

I didn’t ask what “plus more” entails but rest assured it’s something SpECial.

    LMAAOOOOOO!!!! The thing is, they can probably whip the sh*t outta some hair, but try to find their asses and their disconnected phone for a second appointment, haha
