A nail salon in Georgia recently charged a customer extra for a manicure and pedicure because she was overweight — and they say that’s their standard salon policy.
Michelle Fonville noticed that the bill for her manicure, pedicure, and eyebrow waxing at Natural Nails in DeKalb County wasn’t quite adding up, “I said, ‘I’ve been overcharged. She may have made an error,’” said Fonville. As Fonville told WSB TV “She broke it down, then told me she charged me $5 more because I was overweight.”
Fonville accused the salon of discrimination — something the manager denies. Kim Tran says she charged Fonville $5 extra because her salon chairs aren’t made to hold more than 200 pounds and that chair repairs could cost her up to $2500. And that’s “not discrimination.” Furthermore, Tran claims that “if she had been here when Fonville first arrived, she would have taken one look at her and told her that she could not be serviced here.”

Yearly wear and tear from daily customers ranging from small to big is enough to break a chair. Your thoughts?
Until next time please have a great nail polish day
