Curly haired ppl should be able to be serviced by ANY professional with a license in hair or makeup.

Wonderful purpose behind this petition. Any person with any texture should be able to trust whichever professional’s chair they are in. That isn’t the case, so it must change!

Thanks for adding your voice.

I'm signing because its absolutely atrocious that this is skipped over. As a chef I must learn to accommodate all dietary restrictions, why should it be deemed unnecessary to teach about how to work with a particular kind of hair. A public service should be able to accommodate and serve all members of the public.

I’m a hairstylist who hasn’t had any education on ethnic hair, including in my original hair program. I feel it’s really important that this gets added into the curriculum as Canada is very multi cultural and it is very unfair to have someone come to their appointment, and you have to refuse a service because you are uneducated in their hair type. This needs to change!

This should be a mandatory part of cosmetology/hair school. By continuing to not teach the future hair stylists of the world how to properly work with “black” hair we are teaching that it doesn’t matter and it’s not worth it which couldn’t be further from the truth. This is a NECESSARY course and I can’t believe that it’s 2020 and still not being properly taught.

We need common knowledge of all human hair types! We are supposed to be the experts.

I've been in the industry for 17 years and have never been taught how to properly cut African hair. I wish it had been taught to me in hair school

Working with black hair was never been taught in school for me and as a consequence, I have no confidence in that genre.

Thanks for adding your voice.

It is ridiculous that this is already not a thing. I have encountered SO MANY professional hair stylists that do not know how to style 3a-4c hair types. Unacceptable.
