I literally LAUGHED OUT LOUD to every tweet on the #blacksalonproblems twitter feed. They are either relatable to me or I know someone that went through this. While we love our Black hair salons for keeping our hair on the latest trends, these memes are quite accurate.

You either go home and try to fix it yourself or just take it all down. Smh.

This is why many of us are edge deficient. Why are you putting ten braids on a one inch part?

We still got love for you though. I’m sure that Black Hair Salons can start an equally funny and accurate hashtag about us. Comment below about your experience at the salon.
