WHILE emotions in the country are high following attacks on foreigners, 85 local hair salons owned by South Africans and immigrants have come together to form the Pietermaritzburg Salon Owners’ Association in order to control prices salons charge clients.

Local salon owners, according to the association’s chairman Sbu Busani, have been complaining about unfair business competition. They have accused their foreign counterparts of charging far less, which they said made their clients opt for the cheaper services. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
