Burbank business owner Stephanie Singleton says "hair is hair," but her salon day at the PATH homeless shelter in Los Angeles brightened clients' day.
The scheduled "Glamour Day" was intended to expose clients to hair, makeup, photography and other services that may not be able to afford. When the other vendor canceled at the last minute, Singleton, owner of Xtending Hair in Burbank, stepped up to create a full salon day for the 10 women who attended.
Singleton originally planned to teach the residents sew-in hair weaves and extension techniques to later use on their own. Although she did perform some weave services, many of the women were just excited to have their hair washed in the shampoo bowl.
