In an era that acknowledges the parental demands made of Black people to consistently practice a hair routine with their children, ClassDos aims to provide free age appropriate hair styling services to African-American youth of any gender in an effort to boost self esteem in school, and equip them with the skills and resources necessary to maintain their own hair journeys throughout their lives.
This idea was inspired by an effort to make as many Black students as possible feel like they're showing up to class their best selves. While there are many factors that contribute to self-esteem, something as simple as having your hair done can do wonders for your self-image, reduce bullying, and enhance performance in the classroom. As hard as it may be to believe, I am willing to volunteer my time to reaching as many Black youth as I can. Free of charge.
