Let your hair down to help bereaved seniors
A major hair show with international experts will be held this weekend.
The Bermuda Hair Show, organised by hair and beauty firm Natural Blessings Always and Northshore Medical and Aesthetics Centre, will feature information sessions by island and international stylists, samples of products, a fashion show and items for sale from Bermudian businesses.
Nicole Famous, owner of Natural Blessings Always, said the proceeds from the show would be donated to six bereaved senior citizens, who will get pharmacy gift cards and grocery store vouchers.
Ms Famous added: “When we give these gifts to the seniors, we’re letting them know that we care about them and love them.
“I want to see our senior citizens smile more.”
The main sponsor of the event, to be held at CedarBridge Academy, is Design Essentials, an Atlanta-based cosmetics company.
Ms Famous said: “We support one another until we make it in the industry.”
International guests will include French cosmetics expert Craig Carter as part of a two-year commitment to the annual show.
Bermudian experts in the field will include hairdressers Luxury Cuts, the Salon Shop, as well as Hamilton boutiques Mystique and 27th Century.
Kyjuan Brown, of Northshore Medical and Aesthetics Centre, will give a hair restoration tutorial.
The Garden Market store in Pembroke has donated products that can be used to promote healthy hair, such as apple cider vinegar and olive oil.
Ms Famous said that tickets for the show were selling “crazy fast” and that VIP passes had already sold out.
Proceeds from last year’s show, which attracted about 350 people, were used to give a young woman whose family had hit health and money problems a full scholarship to Bermuda College.
Ms Famous said: “Her mom had been diagnosed with cancer and her father had been made redundant.”
Ms Famous, who started to work on natural hair when she was 8, said that she continued to put on the event to show people that: “God made our hair a certain way”.
She added: “We should treat it like a tree — water it, nourish it, and take care of it, because it’s our DNA.”
The event will be held at CedarBridge tomorrow between 1pm and 6pm.
General admission tickets for the show are still available at ptix.com for $35.
