(Philadelphia Inquirer) — The Weave Bar in West Philly doesn’t open until 9 a.m., but many women – and some men – start lining up at 7 against a backdrop of fried fish restaurants and African braid shops to snag the precious first walk-in appointment of the day. Most come with their tresses already washed and blown out; some have bags of hair stashed in pocketbooks. Why are they so excited? Because once they hop in the chair, they’ll be out in 90 minutes. And – get this – prices start at $50 for a whole head full of long, luxurious, silken hair. For women who have spent hundreds of dollars and hundreds of hours waiting for extensions, the Weave Bar is akin to, well, haute heaven. ”I used to drive up to New York on the regular to get my hair done,” said Jonesy, WUSL Power 99′s popular morning-show host. “But ever since I started going [to the Weave Bar], I haven’t gone back up. They do such a good job and most importantly, they really value my time. And as a working woman, my time is valuable.”
