As a refuge for plus-sized women, Jamie Lopez established Babydoll Beauty Couture in Las Vegas in 2017. But in 2019, two years later, she was the target of a hate campaign. A number of the thugs she saw smearing feces across windows threatened to kill her. Even worse, she frequently received threatening phone calls and experienced theft and damage. Lopez, who at the time appeared in Barcroft TV’s Shake My Beauty, reportedly said as follows:
“It’s been a struggle keeping the business open dealing with hate and death threats and other crazy things. People just don’t like fat people, they treat us horribly. They want to make us feel like we’re unwelcome or feel like we don’t belong here.”She further added:
“It’s been crazy. My business was vandalized, our salon signs and air conditioning were both broken – and someone literally put poop on our windows. I don’t know if it was dog poop or human poop but it was all over the windows.”
Super Sized Salon aired in July this year with its first season
On WE tv, Lopez’s program Super Sized Salon made its debut in July 2022. The owner of Babydoll Beauty Couture founded the distinctive location due to encountering prejudice in the beauty industry due to being plus-sized and receiving mockery for damaging a chair in a traditional salon.
The late sstar’sweight reduction journey and her resolve to regain her ability to walk after losing 400 pounds were also documented in the series. In an interview with Yahoo Beauty in 2017, Lopez revealed the inspiration behind the opening of her salon, saying:
“I was inspired by there being no place I could get my nails or hair done in Vegas that would accommodate my needs as a plus-size woman, and I decided it was time to make some changes for the plus-size women of the world.”
Lopez even revealed that she felt “distraught to be mistreated” because of her size and not having a place to “et beautiful.” She further added that her salon caters to all bodies and when clients walk away after getting services done at her salon, the star wants them to “feel beautiful, confident, and s*xy.”
The interaction between the staff and clients of Super Sized Salon was continuously emphasized.
