Speaker: "Black Hairstory: The Beauty Industry & Black Hair Care"
Race and privilege contribute to Black Hair discrimination in the United States, and the beauty industry has been created to further bolster this discrimination against Black women and women of color. There are hairstylists in the beauty and salon industry who are systematically dismantling this mindset. Hair stylist King Curry is in the forefront of this work. Their work confronts race and bias against textured hair in the industry in a way that is unashamed, bold, and reveals the beauty of textured hair outside of a European gaze and male perspective. Join us for an engaging discussion on Curry's mission to educate other hairstylists behind the chair not only on textured hair, but also on the realities of having Black folx in the chair and ways to combat the beauty industry's discrimination. Learn more about Curry.
