Dixon's hair bill to city totals almost $700

April 06, 2010|By Baltimore Sun reporter

Former Mayor Sheila Dixon sent the city bills for nearly $700 for hairstyling during her last year and a half in office, according to records obtained by The Baltimore Sun.

Dixon billed the city for "curling and styling hair" and other hair services six times in an 18-month period.

The invoices were submitted by stylist Alithea Robinson -- also known as Lisa Robinson -- and ranged from $60 to $225.

Dixon did not return a call seeking comment Tuesday evening but had previously said that the she occasionally had her hair styled before taping programs for the city's cable channel.

The Sun reported the existence of three of the bills last month. The newspaper has since obtained copies of three more.

The most recent one, totaling $120, was submitted Jan. 21, about two weeks before Dixon resigned from office as part of a plea deal to settle criminal charges of embezzlement and perjury.
