Anyone who has been to a Dominican owned and operated hair salon knows that Dominican women know how to operate a hair dryer like no other. The legend of the Dominican salon is known from Florida to New York…when you are short on money and need heat hairapy visit your nearest Dominican salon.
Believe it or not, some of the beauticians in the local beauty salons has been bad mouthing the Dominicans. Their complaint is that the Dominican stylists are undercutting the prices at the “black” salons and that they turn over too many heads. In addition they’re open on Sundays when most black owned businesses are closed. To add insult to injury, some Harlem shop owners have accused the Dominican shops of driving their shops out of business.
Has anyone had their hair done styled in a Dominican salon? If so what is your opinion of their technique and their prices?
