The Kolkata clan – While India and China bicker, ethnic-Chinese Indians move away | Asia

Andrew M. Santos

THE SUNFLOWER beauty salon on Russel Street in Kolkata has been gutted for renovation, but a row of elegant Indian ladies sits perched inside its temporary digs, an air-conditioned cargo container. The hairdressers, sisters-in-law named Winnie and Patsy, snip away while chatting to their clients in Hindi, Bengali and English—and to each other in Hakka, a language of southern China. Prettified heads can look through makeshift windows at signs in Chinese across the street, which announce the Shanghai Company, a laundry in an art-deco pile from the 1930s. At the street corner a club offers a Chinese thali, a form of trans-Himalayan fusion cuisine. In the city’s two Chinatowns red lanterns herald Taoist temples and clan associations.

Rooted: Community, fellowship and history flourish at Flewellen’s Beauty Salon

Andrew M. Santos

Flewellen’s Beauty Salon in Oak Cliff is a sanctuary of sorts. It goes far beyond the hair.

It’s a unique place for men and women– one that serves dual purposes for the Black community.

Oftentimes you leave with a new look, but almost always with a renewed spirit.

Flewellen’s, a historic salon in Oak Cliff, is just one of the many shops where both things happen simultaneously.

The salon experience is especially important for the Black community because for years, it was one of the only places outside of the church that Black people could find fellowship.
