"BEAUTY SHOP POLITICS: African American Women's Activism in the Beauty Industry" by Tiffany M. Gill

Beauty Shop Politics conveys the everyday operations and rich culture of black beauty salons as well as their role in building community. African Americans have embraced the entrepreneurial spirit by starting their own businesses, but black women's forays into the business world were overshadowed by those of black men. With a broad scope that encompasses the role of gossip in salons, ethnic beauty products, and the social meanings of African American hair textures, Gill shows how African American beauty entrepreneurs built and sustained a vibrant culture of activism in beauty salons and schools.
