DOT'S BEAUTY parlor

Dot’s Beauty Parlor is a pop up beauty shop based in Washington, DC in 1980. A time when DC was known as the “Chocolate City” and DC solely thrived off urban culture,  black business, and building and unifying the community.

Dot’s Beauty Parlor is an exhibition in form of a black beauty salon + community hub. The Exhibition itself is an installation and chosen works are curated on the “salon” walls.

Beauty + Barber Shops have always been a staple in the black communities offering and sharing business, work, news, gossip, and support. Despite their importance, Black Beauty Shops and supply stores are usually the first to be removed from these communities when Gentrification takes place. The Beauty shop is the social focus and the art presented in the beauty shop depict ethnic and urban culture in DC,MD,VA.
