IT'S ALL ABOUT THE
For black women, our mental health and well-being tie in directly with the people we trust to do our hair. When you allow someone to touch your tender tendrils, you’ve instilled a level of trust in that person. That’s probably why our hair stylists become a sounding board for us—the therapist we didn’t know we needed. Our goal at the Black Beauty Shop is to empower stylists with the necessary tools to provide resources to our community, specifically for their mental health. We’re asking all stylists throughout the country to join the Black BeautyShop movement and celebrate our uniqueness and empower each other to overall well being.
