The answer is B

Let a total of 100 people visit the salon.
Total = 100
Dye hair blonde (A) = 42 % = 42
Dye Eyebrows blonde (B) = 36% = 36
Straighten Hair (C) = 35% = 35
Neither = 20% = 20
All Three = 12% =12

Total = A+B+C - (Sum of Exactly Two group overlaps) - 2*(All three) + Neither

100 = 42+36+35 - (Sum of Exactly Two group overlaps) - 2*12 + 20

(Sum of Exactly Two group overlaps) = 9

%of customers coming for exactly 2 of the 3 procedures = 9%
