Just like Black barbershops, Black beauty salons are spaces of identity and resistance. Choosing between going curly or straightening their hair, Black women can take a stand in social movements where hair rose as a benchmark for tracing a unique aspect of African American history, creating in the process a complex and convoluted relationship between Blacks and their hair that spelled “Black is beautiful” (Byrd & Tharps, 2014). Black women can straddle away from mainstream standards and join others who embrace a notion of Black beauty that does not find these standards relevant (Evans & McConnell, 2003). Dark skin and natural afro-hair have been central in the politics of visibility, an aesthetic that destabilized the notion of Black beauty as an ambiguous binary (Tate, 2007).
