A woman in Colorado was allegedly offering men topless haircuts and reportedly also admitted to having clients pay for sex. She’s been charged for not having a license to practice cosmetology.
Suzette Hall, 46, who also goes by the name Suzette Dawe, allegedly charged men $45 for topless haircuts. She was arrested by police in Colorado on Wednesday for practicing cosmetology without a license.
Longmont police began investigating Hall over a report that she bounced a number of checks to pay for chair rental at a salon, according to the Longmont Times-Call.
Witnesses reportedly told Longmont Police Detective Stephen Desmond in October that Hall opened a salon in Johnstown called Rebel Beauty, but she moved to Loveland and "is charging $45 for topless haircuts and is advertising on Craigslist."
Her Johnstown business partner told the detective that they opened the business together, but the relationship ran into a problem when Hall decided to offer up the topless services.
According to the warrant, Hall’s partner was "not comfortable with this as she did not want to have topless haircuts in her business because she is a single mother and ... she did not believe this was safe or proper."
The business partner also told cops that she found used condoms in the salon's trash cans and that Hall admitted to receiving money for sex in the salon and at "house calls," police reported.
Hall’s ex-husband told police that she claimed she applied for a license and it was in the mail and that she had also applied for "a nude license for hairstylists," which, police confirmed with state regulators, does not exist.
Hall, who is being held on $25,000, has nine previous felony convictions, according to the warrant.
