Color Blind Stylists? How Is That Even Possible?
Salons are one of the last places where segregation still occurs and is largely ignored; black people go to "black" salons and white people go to "white" salons. It's hard to believe that with all of the technology hair companies have access to, all of the research and development they conduct to create products, all of the education available to stylists, that in 2017 this archaic practice continues.
When GLOSS was merely a sparkle in our eyes, the concept of opening a salon that served every type of hair was critically important to us. As the child of an interracial couple, my hair struggle growing up was real as hell. My white mom, bless her heart, didn't know what to do with my hair and neither did her hairstylist friends. If I went to a white salon, I would ask if they could cut my hair and I was greeted with, "Um, I can tryyyyy?" Granted, there weren't a lot of mixed kids in the seventies but I didn't want anyone to have to end up like me - spending most of my adult life cutting my own hair.
Fast forward and GLOSS Salon and Style Bar is changing the salon landscape with a brilliantly integrated multi-cultural salon; our stylists don't see "black" or "white" hair. So,whether your hair is pin-straight, kinky, wavy, super curly, coarse or smooth, it can be done at GLOSS. Hair is, after all, simply an accumulation of proteins, amino acids and keratin. It's not black or white - it simply is. Come join the revolution. #glosssalonandstylebar
