I'm surprised that no one else has yet posted a comment here. I'm writing to say that I deeply appreciate the courage this young woman has shown to come forward and make a complaint. The kind of behavior she reports is seldom a one-time-only occurrence, especially given the age of the accused. That is, he probably has done this before and would again.

It's worth noting that there was a similar incident at La Belle about 10 years ago, reported in the Weekly.

La Belle is an otherwise excellent salon; it's saddening that management can't seem to do better at hiring.
