I recently moved to Green Bay to be with my boyfriend (December). Its been 2 months and I've yet to find a Black Hair Salon. I wear a weave (fusion) and have been struggling to maintain my hair myself. I'm literally at my wits end. I am willing to go as far as even Chicago to get the best because, as a Black Woman, I am very persnickety when it comes to my hair.
Please, Please can someone help me with suggestions. I need a salon that specializes in weaves(fusions, sew-ins). I also am in need of a Dominican salon to get that good Dominican blowout whenever I'm not wearing a weave.

Help!!!

I found these two websites. Scroll down and find Wisconsin on both pages.
Black Hair Salon Directory -- EthnicSalons.com
Black Hair Studios, Black Hairstyles, Black Hair Salons & Natural Hair Treatment
And if you call those places, maybe they'll be able to direct you to someone closer to Green Bay. Good luck.

No problem.
I checked because I was actually curious myself.
It's something people without black hair don't even think about. But I imagine it must be difficult. And it actually may explain a little why black folks don't populate certain places. Where would they get their hair done? (Sounds like a joke, but I'm serious... that must be hard. lol)

They had a black salon here in Great Falls, Montana for a while. I don't know if it's still there or not. It is/or was in a part of the mall, near the side entrance I never walk through. I'll have to look.

Minnesconsinite,

It's not very diverse here in Green Bay, hence no Black hair salon. Unlike, Caucasians, Black hair is very "kinky", it is very tightly curled and so we can't just get up and shampoo it and blow it every morning, our hair is coarse whereas, Caucasian hair is fine. The texture is just different.

The comedian, Chris Rock, has a documentary out on the subject, can't remember the name of it but I heard about it and it seems interesting. I think it's called "Good Hair" or something like that. Some Blacks were upset with him for going indepth about the subject of our hair, because they think he is spilling too many secrets. Afterall, we are very persnickety when it comes to our hair, but personally, the snippets of the documentary that I saw on Oprah, I have no problems with. As long as my hair looks good, its okay, I don't have a problem admitting I wear weaves or wigs. I just love to change things up.

I moved to Green Bay because My fiancee lives here and it is a bit of a bummer that I may have to drive 2 hours to Milwaukee to a salon but I'm going to suck it up and deal with it.

This is a great resource for African Americans moving to the area.

North East Wisconsin African American Association.

ABOUT...

The Northeast Wisconsin African-American Association was established in 1991. Originally, a group of African-Americans started meeting together for breakfast once a month at the Bay Family Restaurant in Green Bay. The purpose of the meeting was to share information about living in Green Bay.

Such things as where to get a hair cut or hair done, black hair products, how are the schools with respect to African-Americans, where to worship were some of the things discussed. As an outgrowth of these breakfast meetings, NEWAAMA was formed. Since then, NEWAAMA has been involved in a variety of different activities throughout

Mission Statement

To support the cultural, educational and socioeconomic needs of the African-American community and the ethnic diversity of Northeast Wisconsin, while maintaining a viable entity as the Northeast Wisconsin African-American Association.
