For many women, a hairstyle is more than a personal image choice. It's often both personal and political, and has economic implications.
In Tell Me More's recurring "Beauty Shop" segment, host Michel Martin speaks with a panel of women about the politics of hair. Weighing in on the discussion is Michelle Breyer, founder of NaturallyCurly.com, Danielle Belton, author of the blog, Blacksnob.com, and Rochelle Ritchie, a reporter for WPTV-TV in West Palm Beach, Fl. Ritchie recently made headlines after ditching her straightened, chemically relaxed hairdo for a more natural hair texture with curly twists.
