Woman Drags Atlanta Hair Stylists Who Work From Home


Screengrab

A TikTok user is going viral for dragging unlicensed Atlanta hairstylists who work from home.

Atlanta has a serious problem with unlicensed hairstylists who advertise their services on Instagram or TikTok.

Most unlicensed stylists don’t give refunds, they frequently cancel appointments, and they demand deposits.

TikTok user Hottgozzip went on a rant against work-from-home hairstylists.

Her video has over 62,000 views on TikTok.

She complained that unlicensed hairstylists live in the hood, often have dirty apartments, and their boyfriends are in and out during the hair appointment.

“You don’t get your deposit back. It’s nonrefundable,” Hotgozzip said.

Hotgozzip asked unlicensed hairstylists to let their clients know that they live in the hood.

“We don’t know when to get in the car, take our pocketbook back home… Don’t leave nothing out on your website. Let us know WTF going on. Your boyfriend look like he ready to rob somebody. We don’t know what to do. We’re clutching our pocketbooks,” she said.

Other Black women have taken to social media to complain about the Black hair industry in Atlanta and other cities.

Atlanta is particularly troublesome because there is little to no regulation of the hair industry.

Anyone can call themselves a hairstylist in Atlanta. Most stylists don’t wash hair and they don’t know how to use Marcel irons.

According to some women on social media, it’s difficult to get a basic wash and set anymore.

“It’s really hard to get people in the chairs that are licensed,” said Naeema Finley, owner of the Curlie Girlz Rock salon in Smyrna, Georgia.

Finley refers to Atlanta hairstylists as “influencers.”

“A lot of people become famous on social media and then try to get into the industry without actually holding a license. People are finding that instead of going to school for a year, I can just do natural hair and get away with some things that aren’t getting caught by inspectors.”

Another Atlanta salon owner trains hairstylists to be professionals.

“I was frustrated. I was one of those clients who would go into a salon and be there for six hours,” said Najah Aziz, who runs Like the River salon in Atlanta.

Aziz said that’s why she launched Beauty Beyond the Hair, a series of classes and workshops that teach licensed hairstylists how to run reputable hair salons.

“How we can fix this is offering more professionalism and customer service,” Aziz said. “I educate stylists on techniques of hair and the business acumen of hair. I want us to win as a community.”
