Very nice story, with the most beautiful Vivica Fox in the starring role; but, has some salty language and situations, yes
27 January 2011 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Jenny (Vivica A. Fox) owns a beauty salon in historic Baltimore and she and her young son live upstairs. Her ensemble of stylists run the gamut from outspoken females, an overtly gay male, and action-ready folks of both sexes. But, in truth, all of them have big hearts and act like family to each other. One of the female hairstylists, especially, needs their support, for she is involved with a rather bad-apple mechanic (Terrence Howard). Not long into the future, a handsome lawyer (Darren Dewitt Henson) brings Jenny bad news. The powers that be are exercising their "emminent domain" rights and will evict her soon to build a parking lot for a more lucrative business nearby. But, the lawyer, naturally, is captivated by someone as beautiful as Jenny. So, over the course of weeks, he counsels her on how to "fight back", even though he admits he will aggressively pursue his client's interests. Ho, ho! Who will win the legal fight? And, will it be at the expense of someone's affections? This is another very fine romantic drama for fans everywhere. The cast is quite nice, with the gorgeous Fox giving a great performance. Henson, Brooke Burke, Howard, Garrett Morris and all of the others do competent work, too. Of course, the costumes and haircuts are eye-catching while the script, direction and Baltimore setting are more than worthy as well. But, for all of you who are easily offended, be warned that there are some salty language and situations, indeed. In summary, do make an appointment for yourself to view The Salon. You will be happy with the results.
