Before Roots Hair & Beauty — Nashville's first Black-owned hair and beauty supply store — opened its door to the predominantly Black neighborhood residents, African American women had no place to go they could call their own. This past Friday, hundreds of Black customers stood in bad weather to show their support and secure more than $50,000 in sales in just one day!

Roots Hair & Beauty owner, Sam Tisdale, told Nashville's News Channel 5, "We are proud to be the first, and hopefully we won't be the last." By specializing in all things beauty and hair — 100% human hair bundles, wigs, extensions, crochet braiding, natural beauty and hair products, and more — customers will "find a friendly and knowledgable staff eager to assist your every need."
