I originally posted about these women after meeting them in Atlanta a few years ago. They interviewed a friend and I as part of their survey to create the movement that is in motion today (Read it here.)
Since then, they’ve been featured on Melissa Harris-Perry’s MSNBC show and on BlackEnterprise.com, filmed a “hangout” for Essence Magazine along with MahoganyCurls and are featured on page 91 of the April issue, created an app, and now they’re helping to bring awareness to cancer through the Big Chop to Stop Cancer.
This is a semi-annual natural hair and beauty event that aims to raise awareness about cancer’s impact on black and minority. Women of all hair-types are invited to do the style change to create change. If you were ever thinking about getting “Big Chopped” now is the time to do it!
Spring is upon us! Transition into a new you with a big chop for a great cause. Register. Share your big chop story on Myavana App and WIN a chance to get a free make over and photoshoot with professional photographer.
