Houston-based nail salon accused of locking woman, 4-year-old son inside over bill dispute
A Houston-area nail salon is in hot water after a customer claimed the salon owner locked her and her 4-year-old son inside for nearly 30 minutes after she disputed her bill.
According to FOX 26 Houston, the woman, who wanted to remain anonymous, says she went in on Sunday for a basic pedicure, which was priced at $55.
The woman said she was charged $110 for several extras, including a $15 credit card fee and $10 for a bottle of water for her baby.
When the woman said she would only pay $55, she says the owner locked her and her son inside the salon because she called the police.

When a sheriff’s deputy arrived at the salon, the woman said the owner of the salon told the deputy she owed $335, including a $200 fee for calling the police.
FOX 26 Houston reported that the nail salon, located in Friendswood, has also been the subject of three previous allegations.
