It was barely 11 a.m. yesterday, about the time Marci Messick opens her children's hair salon in Pikesville on a typical Sunday. But this was no typical Sunday.

For more than three decades, Johnson's mother and aunt have cut hair at the cozy salon while talking their clients through love, loss and shades of lipstick. As a teenager, Johnson worked here on weekends, sweeping up snipped strands, rinsing perms and answering phones.
