AFRO DIVA Introduces “Rock Your Fro”
Saturday, July 9, 2011
Time: 2:00 to 5:00PM
1820 Oak Bay Avenue
“Fro” refers to “hair”
“Rock Your Fro” encourages personal artistic expression through creative hair designs. The common themes are self-expression and empowerment. Everyone, male and female, are welcome to participate, however; the target groups are girls and women with textured hair.
Most women with textured hair, or women of color do not see themselves in magazines, television, and, or in other mediums. We are encouraging everyone to embrace their beauty and the expression that we are using is “hair”. I need your amazing picture
Participants are asked to submit photograph, before July 9 (via email or in person) of their rocking hair styles. Last year, two winners were selected, one male and a female. This year there are three age categories;
- ages 10 and under,
- ages 11 to 16,
- ages 17 and above
Winners in each category will have their photos displayed in the salon, in newsletter, and personalized hair stories featured on our website.
This event is also a fundraiser for Japan’s Tsunami Victims 2011. The Japanese Red Cross is the charity of choice. Raffle tickets are on sale ($2 each & $5 for 3). There is over $150.00 in prizes.
