CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Western New York region could enter Phase 2 of the reopening process as early as June 2, and some people are already booking hair appointments. Others are turning their homes into salons.
“Hair in the black community. It’s our culture," Heavenasia Singleton of Buffalo said. "Whether it’s braids or weaves, that’s stuff that we’re use to.”
So when Hair Saga on Union Road opened last Saturday for curbside pick-up, customers were ecstatic.
“We came the next day," Singleton said.
Hair Saga has been in business for five years, offering hair creams, extensions, and makeup for customers to purchase.
“With the coronavirus, a lot was on pause," Singleton said. "But, its good that the stores are open because at least we can do something until hair salons are open.”
And the Cheektowaga business is making some changes so customers can get the items they need, safely.
"We created a drive thru so customers have two options," Ahmed Mohamed, employee at Hair Saga said. "They can either come through the drive thru and place the order with our staff members, or they can either order over the phone, pre-pay and then pick it up.”
And Hair Saga is offering more than just hair products. Their also selling hand santiizers and masks.
“Masks and the hand sanitizers being sold here is good because you can get your hair, and you can get that stuff that you need that you can’t from other places,” Singleton sid.
And they’re selling the items at a discount.
“It cost us $4.50, we’re selling it $2.99 for the customers.”
Hair Saga is open from 10 am to 7 pm Monday thru Sunday and customers can see a list of their products on their Facebook page.
