Michigan: Hair salon inside Walmart bans men while helping Muslim customer

A woman no longer has a job after her manager found out she temporarily asked men not to enter a Taylor [Michigan] hair salon while she helped a Muslim customer.

The woman, who was not identifed, left her job about a week after the incident took place. The salon’s corporate office said she had already issued notice she was leaving before the incident took place.

Photos of a sign on the window at SmartStyle Family Hair Salon, 7555 Telegraph Road, asked for “no men please,” without further explanation.

SalonStyle’s corporate office issued a short statement on the situation.

“SmartStyle welcomes all guests, and we apologize to anyone who was offended by the piece of paper taped to the salon window,” they said. “The message was inappropriate and it does not reflect our standards or beliefs; our goal is to offer a quality experience to all guests. Again, our apologies to anyone who was offended.”

While the sign was posted briefly July 10, the manager didn’t find out until about a week later. On July 25, a man posted photos of the sign online, store manager Erika Van Etten, responded to the photos. She said he called July 24, claiming that it had happened that day and gave a false name and phone number for her to contact him at to talk about the situation.

She explained that store policy is not to close the salon, or restrict access to men, even when a Muslim customer is in the store.

“We are not allowed to close the salon under any circumstances for anyone,” Van Etten wrote. “If someone has a head scarf we are to let them know that we cannot close the salon and if a man comes in we cannot stop them.”

She said the employee who posted the sign did so without approval, and no longer works at the salon.

“I was not here for this incident and this was the result of a former employee taking it upon herself to do her own thing,” Van Etten said. “I reiterate that this is a former employee that has been taken care of. As far as what happened. I apologize for anyone who gots offended by this sign however again I was not here for the incident.”

Within an hour of the photos being posted there were hundreds of online comments both complaining about the sign, and encouraging the salon for working with the customer.

Calls to the salon for further comment were not returned. A sign posted on the door of the salon Tuesday afternoon said it was closed due to short staffing, despite the manager posting on social media less than an hour earlier that they were open until 8 p.m.

The salon is located inside the Walmart at the same address.

  1. Was the employee a Muslim or was she just indoctrinated with Muslim political correctness?
    …’creeping’ Muslim political correctness is protecting the wrong doings of Muslims in western societies…Rape, honor killings, allowing bad behavior coz ‘We have to respect their culture’.
    Liberals and their anti-American Democratic Party and media, Hollywood, colleges, public schools, liberal judges, some politicians, the uninformed…you know, the usual suspects…are corrupting our society and country with these convoluted notions that fall right into the hand of Islam.
    Tragically, our kids are the most susceptible.
    Speak out, just don’t turn the other way. Resistance does work. If none, then the perps feel they can get away with more.

  2. The ONLY way to combat this “creeping” (now more like galloping) sharia is to RESIST muslims in every way possible! Accommodation and fraternization of muzzlumz is the same thing as yelling “Sic ’em” to a rabid dog! MUZZSCUMZ HATE YOU, IF YOU’RE NOT ONE OF THEM!!!!! And anyone who says differently is a g-damnd LIAR!!!!!

  3. P.S. The muzzturds are always making “demands” to accommodate their 7th century savage ways! But I say it’s high time that Westerners rise up and DEMAND that these muzzrats go back to the hell-holes where they came from. They destroy EVERYTHING that they touch and when there are no more “infidels” to kill–THEY KILL EACH OTHER!!!!! THEY’RE SAVAGES–SECOND TO NONE!!!!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
