WillieMay McKinney, owner of B & B Beauty Hair Salon. Oak Park, Sacramento
My clients have been with me the whole time I’ve been in business. I’ve done hair for them, their kids, and their grandkids. I closed down completely in March, and then they let us open back up in June. I do everybody one at a time. I work a week, then I quarantine for a week. So it's 14 days before I see them again. So if anything is happening with them I already know. That's the protection that I put on myself. This salon was supposed to make a really good retirement for me but this pandemic has changed all that. My life has changed. My finances are not the same. I can't travel and I can’t see my family. But I'm still here. We're all losing money, but if you're not here to make the money, you're going to lose money too.
