Event Description

THE EVENT

The event on Friday 15 September is in two parts and is endorsed by the United Nations.

The first element is focused on starting the conversation with children to support positive affirmation of their appearance and education about the difference between European and Afro hair to promote understanding and self-esteem.

 

The ‘Record-Setter’ record breaking morning event with over 300 school children from different backgrounds aims to set the world record for the largest ever hair lesson. There are motivational speakers and special guests attending to educate and celebrate the diversity in hair.

 

In the evening there will be an adult event that includes a panel called Careers and Curls which has some eminent figures on the panel including Berkeley Professor Angela Onwuachi Willig, Vernon Francois (Celebrity Hairstylist), Keisha Omilana (Pantene Model), Miss USA 2016 – DeShauna Barber, Michelle DeLeon among others.  The panel should provide an interesting conversation about the perception of hair bias in the workplace that plays a role in individuals self-selecting to not wear their natural hair due to concerns about their professional appearance despite the potential ‘uterine leiomyomata’ and cutaneous health risks identified in research papers about certain styles. E.g.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3746223/

 

 

Tickets are available via Eventbrite at £12. Vernon Francois (Oscar winning actress Lupita Nyong'o hairstylist) will be there as well as a hair clinic hosted by the School of Trichology providing advice on any hair issues or concerns people have. There is also a networking 'mixer' event afterwards which should be fun.
