Read Around Town: Hair Salon

Read Around Town is a series where I highlight picture books that celebrate the people and places in a young child's immediate community. These would work well for preschool classes or homeschool groups taking tours of local businesses, or for any child interested in learning about his or her neighborhood. Today's post includes ten picture books about hair and hair salons.
