Cornrow City is a hair salon located in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans and the Voodoo emporium of Marie Laveau. It is also the location of her inner sanctum, wherein she performs her rituals and spells. When Hank Foxx entered it and murdered her staff and nearly herself if Queenie hadn't transferred the shot, it was likely that Marie had abandoned it when she left to go live with the witches at Miss Robichaux's Academy.



Chantal works for Marie as an all-around worker in Cornrow City, but is also a practitioner in Voodoo. She tries to prevent Marie from summoning the zombies, but goes along when Marie gives a powerful speech rationalizing the need to retaliate. She dies when Hank ambushes the salon and uses two pistols and shoots her n the stomach as she screams in pain.


Gummy is a salon hairdresser at Cornrow City, it is unknown if she is a practitioner of Voodoo. When Hank invaded the salon, she tried to stop him with a blade but was shot down. She is last seen lying on the ground dead.


Cora was a salon hairdresser in the time of 1961. Her son was lynched for being registered to "De la Salle School" in New Orleans, which was originally an exclusive white school but turned integrated. While she was working, ironically, she was telling Marie and other women doubtful of her choice for her son's education that she had hope for the future, which is why she took a risk in sending her son there. She was later devastated to learn about her son's fate. In the present time, she is seen again to be pampered by Marie Laveau for the Mayor's Annual Halloween Ball, and when she tries to pay Marie, Marie refuses payment and even gives her money out of her jar, saying she needs it more. It is not known if she still worked in the salon or if she was massacred in Hank's shoot-out. 


Chinwe is one of the messengers of Marie Laveau. He first escorts Cordelia to Marie Laveau to the questioning for a fertility ritual. Next, he was at Hank's apartment during the Voodoo pinning warning, saying "Marie Laveau sends her regards". He took a shotgun blast to his gut as Hank invaded the Salon.
