We would like to present the second ever “repHAIRations,” taking place on November 1st! It is time for all of us to take action to REPAIR our industry and serve REPARATIONS to the community that has been underserved and underrepresented. The second ever, this event brings healing and repair to a damaged industry through our core mission. The Texture Vs Race mission is to elevate the industry through education for ALL hairdressers about ALL textures.
Recently the dialogue has shifted in the beauty industry. Textured hair has taken center
stage. We are educating the masses on texture, but there still exists another market that is
still being underserved: the black hairstylist.
Less than 20% of the black community go to the predominantly white trade shows.
Most educational marketing material do not make it to urban pipelines.
Major brands do not participate in ethnic dominate shows.
It’s time we address the mutual lack of education for the black stylist when styling straighter
textures of hair. While there is no shortage of “straight hair education,” there is a shortage
of this education reaching the black community.
Our intention is to educate the black/brown community at the same rate that we are
educating the white market. We must level the playing field for all stylists.
Cross pollination of education is required to repair this broken system.
We all must continue to evolve, as our industry is forever changed.
Through the racial uprising, we have unearthed the divide that exists in the beauty
industry and it is time to close this gap. It is time to repair and rebuild- better,
stronger and more united.
THE EVENT 11.01.21
repHAIRations is a full day of online education and a forum for open dialogue about
multi-cultural styling. This will include LIVE Look, Learn, & Listen education showcasing black & white artists, educators, session stylists, and influencers.
For each ticket purchased, we will award a gratis ticket to a BIPOC This is a part of the reparations that provide equity to the black community of hairstylists. This is a form of allyship. We need YOU to do your part in shaping this industry into a viable entity where everyone thrives. We must make room, not take up more room.
In addition to the scholarship award, your ticket sales will be used to support our favorite charity and Black Organization- Until Freedom . We will also provide aid to black students who may be struggling with day-to-day expenses associated with mastering their crafts.
Last day for registration 10.21.21 @ 11:59 PM

OUR PLATINUM VIDEO BAR
November 1, 2021
10am- 7 pm est
We met in 2016, while volunteering for a fundraiser at our children's school. We talked about the different paths that had led each of us to a mostly white school in a suburb of segregated Boston. We discussed where to get our hair done and complained about the everyday inconveniences of having no hair shops in our area. We fleshed out the endless ways that systemic racism and oppression affects every bit of our daily lives. Then, we had honest conversations about the roles we each play in upholding and dismantling that system - we covered it all! We debated about the best ways to make change. And, while it feels overwhelming to think about dismantling systemic oppression, it felt exciting to dream about filling a need by opening a hair shop where none exists. We talked and dreamed, and dreamed and talked… until a day in October 2019 when we decided to actually do it!
