I'll never forget the first time I stepped foot in a Dominican hair salon. I was around 5 or 6, and I was getting my first professional haircut. Unlike the other hair salons I had been exposed to before then, this one was as vibrant and exciting as a Latino family party! In one corner, hairstylists were doing client's hair and in the other, an old lady with a grocery cart full of homemade pastelitos, avena, and Morir Soñando juices. And let's not forget the loud and comforting merengue and bachata music playing in the background.
Since then I've been hooked on Dominican salons for more reasons than I just said. And don't worry, girl: there are Dominican salons all over the country. If you live in a big city like L.A., NYC, Miami, D.C., or Chicago, you're bound to find one. Still don't see the big deal? Here are eight reasons why every chica should visit a Dominican hair salon.
