Thirteen local hairstylists were displaced from their work stations at Contempo Hair Design Jan. 31 after a leaking pipe damaged the salon's walls and floor.
“We thought it was going to be a week and now its been a month and a half,” said salon owner Diane Jaffe.
For the past six weeks, Jaffe has seen her clients at the The Oaks of Ojai. Her colleagues are spread between five other hair salons in Ojai and Ventura.
“There were six salons that opened their doors to us. These are people who could have been seen as our competition, or seen us that way, and they all opened their doors to us,” said Jaffe. “To have all these people say, 'come here and work,' it's one of the things I love about Ojai.”
