Fifty Dollar Sew-In BarMonday, July 30, 2012
African American women's hair is referred to as coarse, kinky, nappy, thick and sometimes woolly. We spend billions of dollars coloring, perming, relaxing and weaving our hair. In 2009, Chris Rock produced a documentary named "Good Hair". The film highlighted African American women and our quest to achieve good hair. Even though, all women from different ethnic backgrounds wear hair weave. Black women make up the majority. Some women wear hair weave for fullness and length. Others, because they want to fit in with society.
Wearing hair weave is not cheap! Factor in the amount you have to pay for the hair weave, plus someone to sew-in the hair. It can cost you about $200-$400 dollars. I love wearing hair weave. It gives me length and fullness. I hate that most stylish charge so much to sew-in your hair. So, I went on the hunt to find a way to save some money. Guess what I found. Maria, owner of Tha Chocolate Factory.
In Georgia, North Carolina and even in Missouri they have $50 dollar sew-in hair salons. You heard me right. $50 dollars. Full sew-in. I live in Miami and had never heard of $50 dollar sew-in salons. When my friend told me about a $50 dollar sew-in bar. I thought she had lost her mind. Who's going to charge $50 bucks for a full sew-in.
In 2012, Maria Comadore opened her own $50 hair salon in Miami. She named it, Tha Chocolate Factory. Maria started doing hair in 1994. In 2006, she moved to Atlanta and started working in $50 dollar hair bars. Maria mastered her skills and decided to bring her talents to Miami. Maria is very good and fast at sewing in hair weave. Her braids are not bulky. She braids to the pattern that you want your hair styled. She also washes, cuts and styles your hair weave. All that for $50 bucks. If you go back to wash and style, she charges $35 dollars. I got my hair done by her twice and was very satisfied.
