Hijab-friendly salon for women opens in Bay Ridge
A new Bay Ridge salon is helping Muslim women who choose not to show their hair to men outside of their families to protect their modesty and privacy.
Le'Jemalik, which translates to "for your beauty," is a new female-only salon that offers privacy to women.
Previously, women who wear hijabs were often placed in a different area of a salon or sometimes even denied service.
While men are allowed to wait for people in the reception area, they are kept out of the main area of the salon to allow for female customers to relax and enjoy their services without fear of men coming in and seeing their hair.
