According to the nail association, an employee told them Thomas refused to pay for any of the other services she received, telling CBS2 that altercation could have easily been avoided.

The cell phone video, which was posted to Facebook Friday, showed people in aprons grabbing a woman's shirt before another person started hitting her with a long object that looked like a broom handle as she tried to leave the salon.

The video shows what happened next, with several women attacking one customer with chairs and brooms.

Witness Mercy Maduka, who posted a widely-shared video of the incident on Facebook, said the fight was sparked by a bad eyebrow job: "So I'm at the nail salon and they fucked up a lady eyebrow and she refused to pay then a fight broke outttt", she wrote, saying the employees hit the customers "like animals".
