DALLAS (Reuters) – Dallas police have arrested a suspect in connection with a shooting that injured three women at a hair salon in the city’s Koreatown and federal officials have launched a hate crime investigation, it said on Tuesday. authorities.

The Dallas Police Department said the suspect is being questioned and being treated, and Chief Eddie Garcia is expected to release additional information about the arrest later today.

Garcia said last Wednesday’s shooting at the Hair World Salon may be linked to two other shootings at businesses run by Asian Americans in the region.

Also on Tuesday, the FBI said it had opened a federal hate crime investigation with federal prosecutors in Texas and the US Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division.

Dallas FBI spokeswoman Melinda Urbina said agents were working with city police “to fully investigate this incident,” but she couldn’t provide more information because the investigation is ongoing.

The shooting in Dallas happened days before a white gunman killed 10 black people Saturday at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, and a gunman who authorities say was motivated by political hatred toward Taiwan, kills one person and injures five on Sunday in southern California. church where mostly elderly Taiwanese parishioners had gathered.

In Dallas, authorities said a man dressed in black opened fire on the living room and then drove out of the mall in a brown van. Garcia said investigators found a similar vehicle had been reported as involved in two other recent shootings. Someone opened fire during a drive-by April 2 near the living room, and Garcia said the van was also linked to a May 10 shooting about 40 kilometers southeast of there. No one was injured in either of these shootings.

The three women who were shot at the show on Wednesday were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The living room shooter seemed calm, a victim told his daughter

Jane Bae, the daughter of one of the injured women, told The Associated Press last week that her mother said she did not recognize the gunman who calmly entered the living room, opened fire and then left.

“He was calm. He just walked over and stood there – didn’t walk around – but stood there and fired like 20 rounds and then walked out calmly,” said Bae, who n was not there but had spoken with his mother.

The salon is in the heart of Koreatown, which sits in a part of town that was transformed in the 1980s from an industrial area to a thriving neighborhood with shops, restaurants, markets, doctors’ surgeries and salons .

Anti-Asian violence has increased sharply in recent years. Last year, six Asian women were among eight killed in shootings at massage businesses in and around Atlanta, heightening anger and fear among Asian Americans.

How a nationwide salon group is working to reduce its massive carbon footprint https://hairextensionsclip.org.uk/how-a-nationwide-salon-group-is-working-to-reduce-its-massive-carbon-footprint/ Sat, 14 May 2022 15:25:28 +0000 https://hairextensionsclip.org.uk/how-a-nationwide-salon-group-is-working-to-reduce-its-massive-carbon-footprint/ While a trip to the hair salon may be for cosmetic purposes, the reality of these beauty services comes at an environmental cost, with millions of pounds of waste being thrown away each year.

While a trip to the hair salon may be for cosmetic purposes, the reality of these beauty services comes at an environmental cost, with millions of pounds of waste being thrown away each year. To help combat the problem, an environmental organization of approximately 4,000 participating hair salons across the United States and Canada is working to reduce the industry’s massive carbon footprint through recycling.

“I think a lot of customers don’t realize the amount of waste a salon produces,” Jennifer Barber, brand manager for Bob Steele Salons in Atlanta, Georgia, told CBS Mornings’ Dana Jacobson.

According to national environmental group Green Circle Salons, the beauty industry throws away about 877 pounds of waste every minute, which is about half a million pounds a day.

Over the past year, Bob Steele Salons joined a growing group of salons across the country when it was certified sustainable, meaning the facility now recycles 95% of its waste. As part of Green Circle, the Atlanta salon fills boxes with trash like foil, hair clippings and chemical hair dye before shipping it to the organization’s facility in the Illinois.

“We felt it was the right thing to do to support our community and be a leader and make sure we’re doing the right thing to reduce our carbon footprint,” Barber said.

At the recycling plant, professionals recycle materials like plastic and hair into new, usable forms.

Shane Price, founder and CEO of Green Circle Salons, told Jacobson that the organization has explored different recycling possibilities with hair waste, such as using it to make recycling bins for salons and even turning it into a soup. of amino acids to use as organic. -stimulant for agriculture.

The group works with partners to separate chemicals from water in hair dyes, which can then be neutralized into salt and water before safely returning to the sewage system. And the dye-free oil layer can then be used to feed the system that powers the entire process.

“Whether it’s masks, capes, or gowns, it’s all just plastic that can be shredded and turned into pellets, plastic beads, and turned into new PPE and new products that, you know, we have to use,” Price said.

Environmental measures taken by thousands of salons across the country have had an impact on customers.

Bob Steele Salons client Lauren Ramsey said knowing that the salon she frequents is certified sustainable means “absolutely” to her.

“I’ve been a customer here for about 15 years, so that’s one of the best things about this place,” Ramsey told Jacobson. I think every business should make an effort to be environmentally friendly and green.”

MCKEES ROCKS, Pa. — Authorities say a person has been taken to hospital after a truck crashed into a building, causing a gas leak.

The vehicle struck the Serenity Styles hair salon located at the 700 block of Chartiers Avenue.

PHOTOS: Person taken to hospital after truck crashes into hair salon

Witnesses told Channel 11 that a customer inside the building who was looking outside was struck by the crashed vehicle. They said the client was carried out of the building and taken to hospital.

Police believe the driver of the vehicle was likely overdosing at the time of the accident.

A witness told Channel 11 he heard background noise in his flat and went outside to check on people.

He walked to the truck, where he saw the driver slumped over the steering wheel.

“His head was resting on the steering wheel. I’m not allowed, so I didn’t mean to hurt her or do anything, so I just backed off. He looked like he was out. Then they finally got him out of the truck and laid him on the sidewalk. He was not responsive, but I believed they were using Narcan,” witness James Swaney told Channel 11.

At this point, the driver has not been charged.

Channel 11 spoke to a customer who was inside the salon when the truck slammed into the window. She didn’t want to share her identity because she was too shaken up.

“It was like a big boom, a big crash. It’s something you would hear in an action movie, but it wasn’t. It was real,” the witness said.

She added that it appeared that the client who had been hit was her leg.

Emergency crews reported to McKees Rocks after receiving calls about the crash at 10:52 a.m. Friday morning.

Julianne Kimmel didn’t know what she wanted to be when she grew up. But now, as the owner of Lone Wolf Salon, she’s managed to build a life out of one of her passions. and found a way to move his community forward towards a better future.

As a youngster, Kimmel explored a few different interests before he was finally spoken to. “I was playing fiddle, viola, and cello, and I wanted to go western,” she says, “but then I quit because I wanted to be an actor. It didn’t work out, so I went to dental assisting school – and realized that I don’t do well with blood.

She remembered wanting to be a makeup artist at one point, and although there were no programs available at Bellingham, a cosmetology license would bring her closer to that goal. During her classes at Tony & Guy, inspiration finally struck.

“As soon as I had the scissors in my hand and stood behind the chair, I knew this was what I was going to be,” she says.

Owning her own business means Julianne Kimmel can create her own atmosphere and welcome clients from all walks of life. Photo credit: Steven Arbuckle

Kimmel’s career began in a mall saloon before moving to downtown Bellingham. “I’ve always been intrigued by barbering and shaving, and was lucky enough to work under Wally at Wally’s Barbershop,” she says. “I really liked that it was old school; he learned barbering in the 1950s, then he had military training, I believe, and that’s where I got my intensive training.

While she loved the education and the atmosphere, she knew she wanted to learn more. “I’m the type to move on. If I feel stagnant, I get restless,” Kimmel says.

After gaining more experience downtown, then at a store opened by a former colleague, her desire to make her own decisions met a promise she had made to herself earlier. “It was actually kind of a quarter-life crisis,” says Kimmel. “When I was in beauty school, I thought I was going to own my own business at 30. So, at 29, I did the numbers and realized it wasn’t not a crazy decision, financially.”

Opening her own salon means Kimmel is free to create the kind of world she wants to live in.

Traditionally, hair care has focused on gender and race, but Kimmel prefers to evaluate each job on its own merits. Photo credit: Steven Arbuckle

“Growing up in Bellingham it was very difficult to find a stylist. I remember going from salon to salon with my mum and being turned down because they didn’t do my hair type, so I ended up cutting my own hair – and looking back, it was terrible,” she laughs. “I still talk to a lot of multicultural people who cut their own hair. help them realize that their hair is beautiful, and there are people who have the knowledge to help them.

And while it can be difficult to find someone in the area qualified to work with black hair, Kimmel has seen that people of all ethnicities can grow all kinds of hair. So, in an industry that traditionally charged customers based on their gender and ethnicity, Kimmel chose instead to gauge the amount of work to be done. “I remember doing a really quick clipper cut,” she says, “and I was about to charge double because it was for a woman. I said, ‘I decide , right now, that’s not right.'”

“I really want people to be able to walk into my salon as they are,” says Lone Wolf salon owner Julianne Kimmel. Photo credit: Steven Arbuckle

It also means that Kimmel takes a different approach to customers who don’t fit into traditional male or female roles. “I think it can be very difficult for someone who isn’t binary to choose a men’s cut or a women’s cut,” she says. “I feel like there are a lot more companies that are becoming more inclusive, but for the most part they still call themselves men or women.”

Going beyond tradition is Kimmel’s way of allowing customers to feel truly relaxed inside the Lone Wolf salon — a feeling that people don’t always get during hair appointments. “I don’t think it’s anybody’s fault,” she said. “You walk in with greasy hair, and you’re surrounded by beautiful women, and you’re like, ‘I should have put on mascara.’ I really want people to be able to come into my living room as they are.

Kimmel started her career with a very traditional specialty and quickly carved out a unique and progressive niche for herself. Photo credit: Steven Arbuckle

Kimmel really cares about people feeling comfortable in her salon because she knows the power a haircut can have. “I can see it in the way someone walks out of my living room a little bigger, or if I dry someone’s hair and they do a glamorous flip, or the different way they look in the mirror,” she says. “That, to me, is moving.”

Sitting in her studio facing Bellingham Bay, talking about her values, Kimmel is proud of what she has achieved.

“I had people helping me along the way, but I literally started in this room with just a camp chair,” she says, looking around the bright, open space. “I’m still building, and one day I would like people to come to Bellingham and offer ethnic hairdressing lessons. I appreciate the connections I make in my own private place, but eventually I would like to develop my wolf pack. But my vision is always to have a living room that is inclusive for everyone.

The lineup is available on the Kimmel’s Lone Wolf website. She also makes occasional appearances on Instagram and Facebook.

SINGAPORE, May 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SANYO DENKO Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Toda-shi, SaitamaPresident: Michinari Ikawa), manufacturer and seller of specialty wires and cables, together with Vintage Management Pte Ltd (head office: Singapore CEO: Akira Yasuda), delivered cherry trees to Devonshire (Salon: 113 Devonshire Rd, Singapore 239878), a hair salon in Singapore.

Cherry trees exported to Singapore this time are called Keio cherry trees, which are the specialty of Yamagata Prefecture for ornamental purposes with controllable flowering time. This Keio cherry tree was produced by Mr. Onodera and again won a prize this year in a Yamagata Prefectural Flower Contest (sponsored by JA Zen-Noh Yamagata, JA Horticultural Promotion Council and Prefectural Flower Producers’ Liaison Council). Temperature is an essential factor in controlling the quality and timing of flowering. The “SAN-Thermo” multi-point temperature sensor can measure temperatures at more than 10 times the number of measuring points of conventional sensors. SAN-Thermo is expected to be used to promote more advanced plant temperature management.

“SAN-Thermo” continuously records temperatures at several tens of points simultaneously at measurement intervals ranging from a few centimeters to several tens of meters. This time, four 2-meter sensor cables were suspended from the ceiling to continuously measure the temperature distribution at 20 cm intervals from the bottom of the Keio cherry tree (branch) to its tip, day and night.

We plan to continue checking temperature data and the condition of the Keio cherry trees. Additionally, in agriculture, we plan to use temperature data to assist and reconfirm, and in combination with communication devices, to measure and manage remote farmlands.

It can also provide support to newcomers to farming who lack “experience and intuition”.

According to Mr. Yasuda of Vintage Management, the company that handled the export of Yamagata Keio cherry trees to Singaporethe company plans to significantly increase the volume of Keio cherry tree imports from winter 2022 and will work with local ornamental plant dealers to distribute Keio cherry trees to hotels and restaurants across the island of Singapore.

“SAN-Thermo” has a cable shape of about 5 mm in diameter which can be extended up to 300 meterswith up to 40 freely configurable measuring points.

“SAN-Thermo” is increasingly used in a variety of applications, including the following: long-term temperature observation in Greenland glaciers, spatial temperature monitoring in data centers with supercomputers, agriculture (plant factories, vinyl greenhouses), fishing (academic research, aquaculture), engineering (motor units), logistics (warehouses, refrigerated trucks)

The structure to realize features such as flexibility, multi-point simultaneous measurement, light weight, compactness and waterproof was designed based on braiding technology in wire making and was patented in Japan (Patent No. 6185684), United States (US10,672,536), China (CN109196604) and Korea (No. 10-2171330).

For this week’s Trader of the Week, we present to you The Shearing Shed in Rillington, run by Tracey Ireland.

We opened the hair salon on August 1, 2019

What does he sell/do?

It started out as just a hair salon but has expanded into all aspects of beauty, massages, esthetics, spray tans, ear and nose piercings,

Why is this company special?

Situated in the rural village of Rillington on the A64 with ‘parking on the doorstep’.

Our chic new salon is the perfect addition to the village, offering hair, nails and beauty at affordable prices.

We serve several villages in the region.

Since opening the business in 2019, the feedback from the local community has been very positive. Locals no longer have to travel 10 miles round trip to get a haircut and treatment. The lounge is also a hub for locals to have tea or coffee and chat and a listening ear.

How did he adapt during the Covid-19 crisis?

Covid has been an extremely difficult time for us as we were a brand new company when covid hit. At the time, we were still developing our customers and of course we are still a new company. Even though we’ve technically been open for two and a half years, technically due to covid it’s actually only a year and a half.

What is your favorite story/anecdote about this business/trader?

Tracey myself the owner was raised on a farm in East Heslerton where I lived for 25 years with my parents and brother. As a farmer’s daughter, I worked in agriculture for 20 years. At the age of 39, I decided to open a hair salon which I intended to just manage and employ staff. However, things don’t always go as planned and at 40, I decided to go into hairdressing. I then took a two-year hairdressing course which was extremely difficult due to covid, and a lot of e-learning took place. I am now doing Level 2 Barbering and passed my exams last week.

What do you like about your job at Ryedale?

When we have more than one client in the salon, as we are a village salon, more often than not the clients know each other and this creates a pleasant atmosphere as they chat happily, sometimes not having seen each other for years. . It’s nice to see people reunited as friends.

Anything unusual you would like to add?

Dear Bella,

We always hear the term “men are dogs” but let me tell you some women are the devil themselves… so I have this stylist I’ve been dating for years now too, she’s really good at what ‘she does, don’t get me wrong…

I wouldn’t say we’re friends rather than acquaintances, but the things I hear when I’m there are just plain nasty.

Thus, this woman made two men believe that they are the father of her child. One who is the real father and the other, she treats her family.

She always denounces the child’s father for not providing sufficient financial support. While the other person’s family, she receives money every month.

She keeps saying that the other man’s family wants a DNA test, but she always finds a way to brush off the situation.

Bella, I know it’s none of my business but I think someone should tell this family the truth before a lot of people’s feelings get hurt.

Yours sincerely,
Confused…

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… …………….

Dear confused,

Sometimes we have to learn to stay out of people’s business. And please don’t take this first line the wrong way. But honestly, I couldn’t have said it any other way.

Whether you decide to say something or not, the truth will eventually come out.

It seems, however, that you need to find another place to get your hair done, because your salon is a gossip shop.

If it was your family, I would say you’re probably okay trying to get to the bottom of the matter, but you’re just getting second-hand information.

Besides, you don’t even know if she’s telling the truth. Women who talk a lot lie a lot, especially when trying to get attention.

Listen… sometimes we have to choose our battles. I don’t think this is one of them.

Each season, GBH Drama gears up to bring you coverage of the latest and greatest in British drama. This month we get a whole new set of MASTERPIECE: Ridley Road. With an oft-overlooked plot, story, and dramatic storyline, this series does not disappoint. GBH Drama Contributor Amanda-Rae Prescott Is Here To Recap The Magic As It Happens.

Ridley Road is a four-part miniseries based on Jo Bloom’s novel of the same name and historical documents. The series is set in London in 1962 — alongside season 6 of Call the midwife – but Ridley Road shows the side of British politics and religion that other period dramas ignore. The first episode not only introduces the main characters, but also gives viewers the most important historical facts needed to understand the rest of the series.

It’s not poplar
The episode begins with a blonde woman and a young boy who is her son (or son-in-law) in a very beautiful stately home. The boy’s father comes home and they all greet each other with the Hitler salute. This intro, while jarring, makes a little more sense once you keep watching the episode.

Presentations
Vivian Epstein is a young Jewish woman who lives with her parents and her aunt in Manchester. She is engaged to Jeremy, but she is unhappy with the arrangement. Vivian still has feelings for her missing ex-boyfriend, Jack. When she unexpectedly meets him at her father’s tailor shop, Vivian asks Jack where he was, but he’s super evasive and tells her to forget about him (but not until one last kiss). Later that night, Vivian sees Jack outside her house but he only drops by to see her father about something before leaving.

The next morning, Vivian discovers that Jack is going to London, supposedly to run some business errands. Her Aunt Rosa, a Holocaust survivor, tells Vivian to go find out Jack’s true story. She advises Vivian to hide her Star of David, bring her hairdressing scissors so she can find work, and call herself Evans instead of Epstein. Vivian has clearly never been this far from home before, but she’s taking the advice.

You can ask the question but you might not like the answer
Vivian finds the address where Jack is supposed to be on “business” but a nerdy guy with glasses answers the door and says Jack isn’t there. He also claims that Jack has a million girlfriends and “apologetically” tells Vivian to move on. Vivian is irritated by this and goes looking for a room to rent and the wanted help ads. A man who turns out to be Vivian’s uncle understands why she was looking for Jack. He decides to follow her to make sure she stays out of trouble. There is clearly something going on in this shop besides cutting yarn!

Finding an ex-boyfriend in a new town requires a crash pad and a job, and Vivian quickly acquires both. She finds a room belonging to an older Catholic woman and a job at a hair salon in SoHo. Barbara, the owner of the salon, tells her that her duties are to clean up and make sure the supplies are organized. Vivian also meets Barbara’s son, Stevie, who is a law student. He’s also biracial, but Vivian is mostly careful that while he’s nice, it’s not Jack, whom she has yet to find. Barbara suggests to Vivian that whatever man she’s worried about isn’t worth it, but if Vivian wants to try to win him back, she should buy some nice new clothes.

Armed with a new wardrobe to win Jack back, Vivian finds herself in Trafalgar Square. Colin Jordan, the real leader of the National Socialist Movement (played by Rory Kinnear), shouts about the expulsion of every Jewish person from the UK. There are also far-right rallies interspersed with the rally. This anti-Semitic, but also anti-immigrant and racist sentiment is the far right’s reaction to post-World War II immigration from Britain’s former colonies and the rise of national and international corporations that they blame “others”.

Jack is there, in the middle of the rally, waving flags. Vivian is extremely confused and starts screaming her name. At the same time, a fight breaks out between fascists and anti-fascists, knocking Vivian to the ground. Stevie manages to see Vivian in the fray and they escape. A policeman on horseback doesn’t bother to annoy fascist thugs who call Stevie racial slurs, but he insinuates that Stevie is about to commit a crime. Later at the living room, Stevie asks if Vivian is a member of one of the organized resistance groups fighting fascists, and she says she was never a political person. You could say that Vivian’s identity as a Jewish woman is inherently political, but she has to find that out herself.

Later, Vivian’s uncle Saul and his associate drive past Vivian’s crash pad and force her into their car. Vivian thinks she’s being kidnapped but they tell her she’s going to find out about “Peter”. They drop her in an empty rail yard and she sees Jack hiding. Vivian discovers that her Jack is actually called Peter and that he joined the National Socialist Movement as a mole. Since he’s undercover, he has to do what other fascists do. However, he finds out about any hate crimes the thugs are planning and he alerts Jewish community leaders in advance to avoid death and injury. He is able to spy on fascists because he “passes off” to be visibly non-Jewish. He actually loves Vivian, but her job would put any girlfriend or wife at risk and that’s the real reason he broke up with her.

While Vivian is processing the answers to her questions, she calls home. Her father knows that Vivian is with her brother, but he deliberately hides this information from her mother. Aunt Rosa claims she has no idea where Vivian is even though she gave her the idea to run away to find Peter/Jack. Jeremy’s family are angry over the clearly broken engagement. Vivian tells her mother that she is fine, but she needs reassurance that everything will be fine. Finding out that your ex-boyfriend is a double agent in the Jewish anti-fascist movement is a lot to take in.

Accidental recruitment
Uncle Saul points out that the fascists then plot to attack a yeshiva at night. Jewish institutions in London at the time had no signs or symbols on the building to stop death threats. Saul explains that Aunt Rosa came from a town where German soldiers stayed with Jewish families until they were ready to round everyone up for the concentration camps in the middle of the night. He wants Vivian to realize that thinking “it’s not going to be so bad” will always result in death. Peter/Jack is chosen to spy on the place. The other fascists have no idea that there will be Jewish men ready to fight them (and that the building has already been evacuated). Unfortunately, one of the Fascists has a Molotov, and Peter/Jack is injured trying to save the bottle from being thrown through a window. Peter is taken to the hospital but the Jewish leaders lose contact with him.

Vivian suggests that she try to get information from the staff but the anti-fascists warn her that it’s risky as it’s possible the fascists are also there. She successfully sneaks into the room but fails to locate Peter/Jack. Vivian realizes that if she wants to know more about Peter/Jack’s injuries, she needs a better disguise. After apologizing for being late for work, Vivian manages to sneak out. Later that night, she bleaches her hair to be blonde and better able to “go through”. His next mission is to talk to Jordan to find out where Peter/Jack is. Vivian pretends to be a fascist girl who Peter/Jack is dating to avoid suspicion. Vivian successfully infiltrates the headquarters. She doesn’t know it, but the audience can see Stevie spying on the location as well, and they hear Vivian repeating this script. The episode ends with Vivian meeting Jordan.

If you think back to the beginning of the episode, the blonde woman with the child and the fascist husband is clearly in fact Vivian. How does she get there from this point in the story? Has Peter recovered from his injuries? Will Vivian ever return to Manchester? Hopefully episode 2 of Ridley Road next Sunday will answer some of these questions.

Shenia Jackson had no intention of drawing attention to her hair.

As a college student, Jackson wore her hair in micro braids as she transitioned from relaxed straight hair to its natural curly state.

USF student Emily Hernandez says the CROWN Act is long overdue.

“As a young woman in a college environment, having much more aggressive remarks about my hair, I wasn’t sure how to handle it,” said Jackson, a natural hair advocate who now owns a salon. “So often I didn’t say anything. I wasn’t sure what kind of bribe I would get.

She said the aggressive remarks even came from a teacher, who told Jackson she was “a girl who doesn’t know which side of her hair is longer on which day.”

“He kind of nervously shifted the conversation to something else and made a joke, ‘You’ve got these crazy hairstyles, but they look good on you,'” Jackson said. “I don’t like how it made me feel. It was embarrassing, but what can I say? And at the end of the day, I needed to graduate.

“And we all stopped…I didn’t even know what to say.”

USF student Emily Hernandez had a similar experience.

“I wore my hair in a puff, and so did my friends,” Hernandez said. “Teachers would say, ‘This is distracting,’ or the people behind you can’t see. So next time put it away and do a neat style.”

It is these types of comments that have prompted calls for the creation of legislation prohibiting discrimination based on hairstyle.

About the Crown Act

On March 18, the House of Representatives passed the CROWN Act (Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair), a federal measure that would ban hair discrimination in schools and workplaces. It is currently being considered by the Senate.

Similar hair discrimination bills have repeatedly been considered by the Florida Legislature, but have yet to be enacted.

These days, the fact that we have to legislate how my hair grows out of my head is, you know… I don’t even have the words for it.

USF student Emily Hernandez says this bill is long overdue.

“I think the need for the CROWN Act is just as irritating as ever. It’s annoying that we need crown law in the first place,” Hernandez said. “We can talk about hair, but we also have to talk about why we have to talk about hair, which is race.

“It just makes me angry, but then we need it. And I think the CROWN Act is so important.”

Celyne McKenzie, USF graduate and traveling hair braider, added, “I think it’s an amazing idea…it’s just kind of frustrating that everyone can walk into the world as it is. is.”

This facet of institutionalized racism has caused many people of color to question their natural appearance, wondering: Am I going to be judged because of my hair today? Will I be turned away? Will I be despised by others?

Hernandez, who is working on her master’s degree in women’s and gender studies in the fall and plans to pursue a doctorate. in Women’s Sexuality and Africana Studies, says she’s “grateful that I didn’t face peer pressure in the usual things that black girls go through with their hair.”

Jackson said the CROWN Act is a good idea, but “at the same time, nowadays, the fact that we have to legislate how my hair grows out of my head is, you know…I don’t don’t even have the words for it.”

Celyne McKenzie said she was glad she “didn’t have peer pressure into the usual things that black girls go through with their hair.”

A matter of race

Still, Hernandez said, the issue of hair goes way beyond styling.

“We can talk about hair, but we also have to talk about why we have to talk about hair, which is race,” Hernandez said. “When black women or black men wear their hair a certain way or your edges aren’t laid, or you wear a weave and all these different things, it’s like a reflection of our whole race.”

A new wave of understanding has been pushed to the fore by the Natural Hair and Black Lives Matter movements. And other factors have caused a resurgence of black people wearing their natural hair.

Braiding hair is “an art form, but it’s also a way of protecting what we’ve done, to protect what we naturally came to this earth with,” McKenzie said.

We can talk about hair, but we also have to talk about why we have to talk about hair, which is race.

Hair textures are graded on a scale from straight and fine (1A) to curly and coarse (4C). Landing higher on the spectrum, black hair tends to be very thick, dry and unmanageable.

Protective styles are more than just cosmetic. Locks, braids, twists, and weaves protect curly hair from the damage that comes with constant maintenance.

Instead of celebrating these differences, black people are supposed to meet the demands of straight hair. and straightening black hair is not an easy task, both physically and financially.

A painful and costly process

At age 8, Hernandez remembers having her hair straightened for her first communion.

“My hair was very long and very thick. And my parents were like, we gotta make your hair look good,” Hernandez said. “I had to sit in the kitchen and get my hair hot combed, which burns your scalp…there should never be anything this hot near your scalp.”

She reflected on what it felt like to have to live up to the societal norm of straight hair.

Shenia Jackson said, “For every individual, CROWN Act or no CROWN Act, you’re going to have to celebrate who you are.”

“Just feeling comfortable, which is one of…it’s a human thing to want to fit in,” Hernandez said.

“It’s a bit difficult,” McKenzie said. “Because when it comes to black hair, you will always suffer some form of damage because our hair is so special and unique.”

Relaxer is a chemical that smoothes the patterns of curly hair. As stated in an article by hairclub.com“This process leaves hair weak, brittle and prone to breakage. It can even burn your skin, causing permanent scalp damage and leading to hair loss.

Additionally, other research shows:

  • Global marketing research firm Mintel valued the black hair care industry at around $2.5 billion.
  • A 2019 article by Nielsen stated that “African Americans dominate the ethnic hair and beauty products category, accounting for nearly 90% of overall spending.”
  • From 2021, Neilsen reported that African Americans are “2.4 times more likely to purchase hair treatments compared to the average beauty product shopper.”

McKenzie says it’s “discouraging” and she’s “not at all surprised” that the CROWN Act hasn’t passed yet. But, she says, “the tides are changing.”
Yet the passage would not only provide some freedom in how people of color can present themselves legally in schools and workplaces, it would give them the freedom to reflect their culture — and be themselves.

“Black people, we start owning a lot of stuff and we have a lot of successful businesses,” McKenzie said. “And in those companies, we’re going to hire people no matter what they look like.”

Jackson added, “A couple of comments were made, and it would have been nice for someone to say, ‘Don’t worry about it. It’s just a moment’ and that doesn’t reflect your whole experience. And I think that for every individual, CROWN Act or no CROWN Act, you’re going to have to celebrate who you are.”
