Tonya Reid Discusses Her Book US Hairways

Join Tonya Reid as she discusses her book, US Hairways, during an in-store event on Thursday, February 29, 2024, at 7 pm.





We want to celebrate Tonya Reid and her book US Hairways with an in-person reading and discussion at 7 pm on Thursday, February 29, 2024.



A story of legacy, lunacy, a daughter finding her way, and a father who would have made a much better older brother ...

When Tonya Reid questioned her career path at IBM and told her dad she might switch to psychology, he said the magic words: “If you want to study psychology, then you should either become a hairdresser or a bartender.” She enrolled in beauty school and never looked back.

With a knack for entertaining, storytelling, and reading people, her clients are as likely to leave her salon with the giggles or a greater understanding of their lives as with the perfect coiffure. Her debut solo collection of essays, US Hairways brings Tonya’s salon to the world and treats readers to her unique perspective and style.  Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartrending, always irreverent, these snippets from a woman’s journey as a second-generation hairdresser will both entertain and enlighten.
