Hair salons are seeing a sharp drop in appointments due to the flu.
The flu outbreak is grinding business to a halt at one Charlotte, North Carolina hair salon.
So many customers have canceled that some stylists aren't even coming in to work.
"Whatever it is they're getting it and it like four weeks before it goes away," says Hair Spa stylist Terri Winchester.
Stylists have called out sick over the last few weeks.
Others have not come in because they had no customers.
"They're canceling appointments; they're re-scheduling; they're coming in and coughing. It's been bad," Winchester says.
