Here's a highlight of some of the services Brooklyn brats can demand: an "Evening Style" hairdo for $25, a "Baby Manicure-Pedicure" for $10, "Make-up" for $5, "Tattoos" for $3, and a choice of three different facials ranging from $15 to $20. Oh yeah, Dimples also offers "Whole Head Braiding" for $45. I'm willing to bet the farm that the few remaining African American families living in Brooklyn Heights won't be selling out and doing their hair braiding at Dimples.
Is it now safe to say that Brooklyn has morphed into a whole new level of gentrification hell? THIS is what they're talking about when everybody waxes on and on about what a great place to raise a family Brooklyn is?
We're all for entrepeneurs and supporting local businesses, but we'd like to see Brooklynites come to their senses and plot the downfall of this one. Well, they might not actually have to plot at all... Dimples may just collapse all on its own. Didn't the owner, Daria Einhorn, hear about the implosion of the worldwide economy? I'd like to think that even the Bugaboo pushing, mommy-and-me yoga participating parents of Brooklyn Heights have some limit to what they're willing to spend their money on.
And what about the employees of Dimples? I wouldn't be surprised if one of them ends up jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge when they realize the horrible level to which their cosmetology career has sunk.
This shit would never fly in the Bronx... I do my kid's evening up-do hairstyling, facials, and tattoo application MYSELF. After all, the it's important to teach babies that appearance is everything at a young age right? Right.
Big ups to "Tired of Being Broke" for sending us the tip.
