Rainbow Lather
Photograph by Cary Wolinsky

Hazel Newman sculpts the beard of a trucker, one of about 50 who visit the salon daily. Newman, a Navajo, is the granddaughter of a Jewish trader who came to New Mexico in the 1800s. Her co-worker Berlynn Almasri, at rear, is a Hispanic who converted to Islam after marrying an Arab. Analyzing the swirl of ethnic diversity in New Mexico over the years, Newman observes, “It has changed us.”
