HairOnPurpose 10 Week Series 

HairOnPurpose is excited to share that we will be rolling out our very own 10- week HairOnPurpose series  again!! This series will provide an unique opportunity for young women ages 14 - 18  to learn  more about their hair, beauty and lifestyle. We understand now more than ever that young women are up against several social influences  that can have them not loving and embracing the very things that make them special and we seek to change the narrative! 

Our curriculum will cover the important education of all things hair and beauty related and will take our participants on an mind-altering journey of self discovery that ultimately supports them in loving themselves powerfully and unapologetically. 

Participants can look forward to :

-Learning about the history of hair and the importance of hair in our communities

-Learning all about their individual hair texture and how to maintain their hair in the healthiest and most purposeful way

-Learning the basics on how to create a #WashDay Routine

-Learning all about selecting products 

-Learning how to master hairstyles ideal for many textures 

-Learning  the importance of  how food, diet and exercise impact their overall health. Will have the opportunity to attend a fun cycling  and yoga class 

-Engaging  in purposeful activities that empower them to be unapologetic and embrace themselves fully

-Engaging with women of all ages who will share their hair stories and stories of triumph. 

-Each participant will have the opportunity to contribute to the HairOnPurpose Blog in real and tangible ways. 

-Each participant will be partnered with a licensed professional stylist that will become their mentor during the 10 weeks  and will receive an $100 credit to get their hair done! ( redeemable after week 5) 

-Each participant will participate in the HairOnPurpose photoshoot sponsored by a very special guest/brand
