Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 38 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, August 21, 1974 New ruling opens salon doors to men HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) The bouffant and the beard may be seen side by side in Connecticut beauty salons now that a federal judge has opened their doors to both sexes. "It might be fun; you never know who you'll meet in a beauty said Marjorie Stevenson as she settled into a chair at a downtown salon. She was having her hair done one day after United States District Court Judge Jon 0. Newman ruled unconstitutional the section of a state law prohibiting hairdressers from serving male customers The law allows barbers to cut the hair of both sexes. In his ruling. Judge Newman noted that hair fashion has changed since the hairdresser law was passed 50 years ago. "There now is in vogue among some members of the male sex a 'unisex' fashion whereby males desire to have their hair styled and cut longer in some more detailed he said. Angelo Bermudez, owner of the Michelangelo Beauty Salon in New Haven, said he was concerned that the ruling might be "an invasion of privacy." "I don't think women would like to walk around in rollers and a bleached head in front of men." he said. Bermudez said he would ac- cept male customers and might do their hair "in a back room." But most women approached in a spot survey voiced no apprehension about sharing their domain with men. "It wouldn't bother me in the said Mrs. Enos Arnold, a patron at Nigrelli's Beauty Salon in Hartford. "My husband sees me in and I have a man doing my hair." Charles Nigrelli, the owner, disagreed. "I will have a separate area for the men to make it comfortable for both he said. Other salon owners said they might set up a special time or day for men. Margaret Russo, whose salon in Hartford caters to an older crowd, said, "I think the younger girls would love it be- cause they might meet a date." Another salon owner, Pat Borawski. said she didn't think men would take advantage of the new ruling. "I wish at least the rutabagas had done well wanted to get revenge for those parsnips the neighbors gave us last year." 15 Pte 2 great until S icwdothes It's not just a it's an idea.
