As the saying goes, a visit to the salon is cheaper than therapy. This panel explores the hair and beauty salon as an intimate space of touch and talk. Why do some people reveal more to salon workers than they would their friends? What kind of secrets get spilled, and why can a visit to the salon be so emotional? Our panellists look at the relationship between salon workers and their clients, and why beauty rituals can mean so much more to people than just appearances.
