A historic Winston-Salem hair salon was destroyed in an early morning fire, Wednesday.
Ervin’s Beauty Services on the 3000 block of North Patterson Avenue has been open for 44 years. Now, the future of the community institution is uncertain.
The fire destroyed salon equipment and decorative photos of icons of Black excellence who have sat in Mrs. Ervin’s chair over the years. Ervin spoke about some of the salon’s famous patrons.
«Dr. Dolly McPherson. She was the first Afro-American hired at Wake Forest College. I did her hair for over 30 years. I did Dr. Maya Angelou’s hair for over 30 years. We’ve had Oprah here. We’ve had lots of people,» Minnie Ervin said.
