Hairdressers genuinely enjoy that aspect of real salon life, and divas and drama aside, many non-virtual women don’t want careers with conflict.
So what’s wrong with that? And why, then, have some bloggers taken aim at the game with reproachful remarks?
Exhibit A: “Ah yes ... doing its part to show women their place in the 21st century.”
Exhibit B: “You are on the verge of killing 25 years of feminine progress in America.”
Exhibit C: “As a female who enjoys games like ‘Gears of War’ and ‘Command & Conquer 3,’ this is a little insulting—but if that’s what older females have been begging for, they can have what they want.”
As for the new female macho, we won’t go there. The game’s own stats do show an older age-group prefers it.
Yet women who know how to play the real game of life as salon caregivers have become millionaires, traveled the world, taught thousands and showed off their artistry on global platforms to hundreds of thousands—all because they’re real-life “Sallys.”
Besides, demo-ing that the business is fun just might nudge the idea that hairdressing is a great career with a no-holds-barred future. More than a few women are hip to that fact: According to an article at blackelectorate.com, “In the U.S., black female salon owners are among the most successful entrepreneurs in their communities.”
Just because a job is saddled with a “traditionalist” aura doesn’t mean it’s not for players. “Sally’s Salon” may be spreading that message, and that’s a good thing.
So, here’s to all the ”Sallys,” Hershberger and otherwise monikered. Stay the course. Make a profit. And upgrade yourself to a blonde, redhead or brunette. It’s a bona-fide hairdresser’s tradition.
