Bronson salon is a cut above for the jobless

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

Spiraling downward.  Unending.  Stripes of red, white and blue.   

Was it really just a spinning barber pole outside a local salon?  

Or, was it a symbol echoing the feelings of so many Americans trying to get ahead, only to find they are getting further behind? Or maybe a helping hand?

The sign out front, sandwiched between an enormous pair of scissors and a comb, read “The Hair Experts.”

And the people inside, much like the canary yellow paint job on the outside seemed to suggest, were pleasant and welcoming.  And for the last four weeks, on Mondays, they’ve been volunteering and giving free haircuts to the people who need them most:  People with little money who are looking for work or children from low-income families.

Theresa Adams, owner of Shear Expressions, said she did it “to help the community.  Everything else is going up.  We thought we’d give them a little break…just because times are tough.”
