My pal, novelist and beauty editor/blogger extraordinaire Tia Williams and her sisters Devon, an entertainment attorney and Lauren, Deputy Editor of The Root (and *sniff* the late, great Stereohyped), are getting into the matchmaking business. Hair salon matchmaking that is.
It's called The Fly Cut, but you can call it "Groupon for hair" if you must when you're trying to get your friends to sign up with you (it's free!) Tell them The Fly Cut is a website that offers daily discounted vouchers (50% to 80% off) for select (as in carefully vetted) hair salons that specialize in African-American and ethnic hair. Whether your fly cut is naturally curly, kinky, bone-straight or enhanced with a weave, there is a quality salon waiting for you. The Fly Cut will debut in New York in late April 2012 and expand to other major cities throughout the year, but you can sign up right now and be ready for action when the site premieres with the ever popular Miss Jessie's Soho.
