Abstract: This thesis is an ethnography of the Mike Miller hair and beauty salon located downtown in a medium-sized city in South Florida. My findings are based on participant observation and interviews. I want to follow James Clifford's idea of ethnography as an amalgam of participant observation, text, partial truth, and allegory; 'Introduction: Partial Truths' and 'On Ethnographic Allegory' exemplify these ideas. I want to focus on the theories of Martin Wobst, Charles Orser, Erving Goffman, Arlie Russel Hoschild, and Debra Gimlin. By focusing on these various concepts, I want to draw out issues such as the recursive nature of material culture in a hair salon, the presentation of self by both staff and clients, the relationship between hair and self-identity, managed emotions and emotional labor, agency and beauty negotiations, and the connection between beauty and power.
