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 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.

Facebook user Jasmine Johnson posted a video of a protest in front of the Brooklyn salon on Sunday.

Staff at a nail salon in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, mercilessly beat up a woman after she refused to pay for a spoilt eyebrow job. Maduka also wrote that the employees were, "hitting them like animals".

A second video, recorded on the salon's security cameras, appears to show a larger group of people fighting.

Zheng is charged with harassment, misdemeanor menacing and misdemeanor criminal possession of a weapon, police told Pix11, while Thomas is charged with harassment, misdemeanor assault and misdemeanor menacing. Both she and the salon's owners agree that she wasn't happy with how the eyebrow wax turned out.

Moses was also arrested on charges of assault causing injury, harassment and menacing.

And protesters had picketed outside the nail salon, accusing the Asian-owned business of disrespecting residents of the predominantly black neighbourhood. The workers take broomsticks and pummel the women.

An investigation into the brawl is ongoing, and more charges could result, the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office told News12.

A salon customer was arrested as well.

Protesters booed workers as they left the nail shop on Monday with the protection of police officers, according to The New York Daily News.

About 150 predominantly African-American demonstrators marched from New Red Apple Nails at 1426 Nostrand Ave. - scene of the melee caught on tape Friday - to the Beautiful Red Apple Nails at 1224 Nostrand Ave. and trapped four employees inside.

"Anytime a store does not respect us, we're going to shut it down".
