In recent months, there’s been a rise in burglaries at hair salons catering to African American clientele. But thieves aren’t stealing money or expensive equipment — they’re taking hair extensions, specifically silky, expensive human hair that clients pay top dollar for. At the My Trendy Place salon in Houston, Texas, thieves made off with more than $150,000 worth of the stuff. Another $10,000 in hair was stolen from a San Diego shop, $85,000 from a business in Missouri City, Texas, and $60,000 from a salon in San Leandro, California. In most cases, the thieves overlooked the cheap synthetic hair the salons carried and went straight for the real stuff.
