An estimated 65% of the US population has curly, coily or wavy hair. Many people struggle to find a stylist they trust with their hair texture. Too many people leave cosmetology school without the proper knowledge to take care of the people who need the most guidance dealing with their hair. With nobody there to educate them, many people with looser textures don’t even realize they have curl, thinking that they just have “frizzy” hair.

Just like every hair texture is different, skin types and the way you take care of them vary as well.


What needs to be included in the curriculum:


-An equal representation of concerns and solutions for EVERY hair and skin type

-More styling and product options for highly textured hair

-More options for all skin types


With a more diverse curriculum in cosmetology and esthetics courses, a huge percentage of the population that is currently overlooked will be acknowledged and taken care of.

Almost every person with curly hair who has sat in my chair for the first time has told me about all the bad experiences they’ve had with getting their hair done and how nervous they were to try anyone else. If it’s taught in school, less people will have to worry about being turned away or having their hair messed up by a stylist who wasn’t properly prepared to do hair out of school. If you’re going to school to do hair or skincare services, you should be trained in ALL hair and skin types.


Let’s make it easier for everyone to find a service provider they can trust.
