The source of the dispute?
The video has been viewed more than 200,000 times. Two women had been charged with assault. Some protesters urged black residents in the neighborhood not spent their money at the salon. She was later released following a hearing in Brooklyn Criminal Court, police said.
Exactly what happened next is disputed.
According to the nail association, an employee told them Thomas refused to pay for any of the other services she received, telling CBS New York that the altercation could have easily been avoided. The women were dissatisfied with the service from the salon and ultimately, refused to pay $5 for a "f**ked up" eyebrow job.
At that point, manager Michael Lin told NBC4 NY, employees blocked the door.
She also expressed her anger that the salon staff were "hitting [the women] like animals". "I said 'sit down, let me call the police". All you have to do is say "I'm sorry" and keep it going. However, the customers said they already paid for the pedicures. "No eyebrow, no problem'".
The wild scene was captured on cell phone video.
"So I'm at the nail salon and they f****d up a lady's eyebrow and she refused to pay, then a fight broke out", Ms Maduka said in the post.

The woman can be heard screaming in the video: 'That's my grandmother, stop!
The salon employees began to assault the three black women with broomstick, dustpans and their hands.
Two of the women in the video have since been arrested. Christina Thomas, who Zheng allegedly struck with a broomstick, also faces assault charges. Prosecutors are now reviewing additional evidence and may later alter those charges, the station reported. Thomas declined medical attention, the station reported.
It's unclear when the salon will reopen and so far, no additional arrests have been made. Census data shows that East Flatbush is 86 percent black, and only 1 percent Asian. Police escorted workers out of the establishment for their safety, the Post reports. "We will come, we will picket it and we'll do whatever we have to close your store down". Video of the attack was posted to social media and prompted protests outside the salon on Monday. One sign read "Black $$$ Matter".
Livestreamed footage shows stone-faced police officers standing guard as protesters chant, "No more!" They left behind a shuttered salon and protesters hoping it stays that way.
"Where is ICE check for INS status!" The salon closed for the remainder of the day.
