Racism in the beauty industry is nothing new, and for Drybar that unfortunate reality might also ring true. The hairstyling powerhouse has found itself in the middle of a social media firestorm after a New York employee allegedly referred to a customer using a racial slur.
The alleged firsthand account, which has since gone viral, has resulted in several other women coming out and sharing their negative experiences with the salon. The posts are outright disturbing, and they don't look to be ceasing anytime soon.
And though some appreciated the apology, for many it was too little too late. Several other customers and some former employees came forward to share their unpleasant experiences, too.
