A New York hair salon owner is threatening to close his business over “insensitive” hair extensions.
Michael Daley, owner of Daley Salon in Midtown Manhattan, said in a Facebook post on Monday that he will be forced by city and state officials to close the salon by the end of the month unless the city and State Health Department allow his business to continue.
The hair extensions “are offensive, and should not be worn by anyone under any circumstances,” Daley wrote.
Daley said he’s received death threats for his decision.
D’Amore Hair Salon in Brooklyn has also been targeted, Daley told CNN.
Dabiri is a New York native, having worked in the hair salon industry since 2005, according to a listing on the company’s website.
The salon, which also operates in Miami, New York and Los Angeles, has been a fixture in the city for years.
Dabbiri’s comments echo those made by many other salon owners who have said they fear for their livelihoods because of the controversial hair extensions they have worn.
In September, a woman wearing a wig, a braided ponytail and a wig was attacked outside of the Dabbiris in Brooklyn after being confronted by a crowd of men.
The women, some in their 20s and 30s, told the police that a man yelled “you’re a pussy,” according to police.
Dabairi said he had a similar experience in October when he said he was approached by a group of men who demanded that he remove his wig, according the website.
Dabbairi told the New York Daily News he has received death and rape threats after he wore a wig at a Dabbirl Salon in New York.
Darais salon has seen similar backlash in the past.
In November, a man wearing a black mask and a mask and carrying a knife attacked two men who were visiting the salon.
Police said that two men were taken to hospital for treatment of stab wounds.
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has said it is investigating the incident.
Dribs, a salon chain that was recently bought by Dabbier, has not responded to a request for comment.
“This is not the way we want to work,” Darai said in the Facebook post.
“It is upsetting to see our hair extensions being used against us, our clients and others.
We will continue to work with city and other government officials to find solutions.”
Dabbler, which started in New Orleans in 2005, is owned by Michael Dabbir, who is also president of the board of directors of the American Academy of Dermatology.
It’s a leading hair salon chain.
The owner, who also happens to be a prominent figure in the Muslim community, also owns the hair products company, Dabbi Hair, according on its website.
It has been named the most popular salon in the country by People magazine.
