Workers said they were grateful the storms hit overnight when the business was closed. But the tree crushed the ceiling and almost everything inside. The store is a total loss.

“It looked like Godzilla walked into the beauty salon,” director An’cell Davis said.

Angel Howard, the store owner, said she lost everything.

“My curling iron, my blow-dry, my products,” Howard said. “I can’t.”

Howard planned to style a wedding party on Thursday. But it will take time before employees can return to work. About 15 employees worked at the workshop and they hope to regroup them in a second location down the street.

Employees said the store has been around for about 60 years, providing valuable services to anyone who needs them.

“It’s a historic place,” said Samuel Farley. “A lot of people come here to get their hair cut.”

In addition to Aaron, Tyler Perry is known to visit the store.

Howard said the situation has affected her ability to earn money, but she is trying to see the bright side of things.

“I’m devastated, but I’m blessed that we weren’t there,” Howard said.

The storm also toppled a tree at the nearby church and onto a home and SUV on nearby Macon Drive.
