What you'll do

The expression of culture through hairstyles has been a long-standing signature of Black communities. From afros to braids, Black people use their hair as a personal expression of who they are and what they stand for. On this tour, you will be ​exposed to both hair stores and hair stories. You will learn the history of today’s most popular Black hair trends, right back to their African roots, as well as gain a deeper understanding of the emotional significance hair has on Black culture and identity today. Social oppression and racial discrimination have historically forced many Black women to hide their hair. This tour strives to celebrate it. We will visit the best salon options for braiding, wigs and natural curl cultivation. You can also purchase hair accessories and products that will guarantee your perfect next “lewk”. Our last stop will include a personal mini-consultation on your hair texture at one of Harlem’s premier natural hair salons. This tour caters not only to those with black hair, but also those just interested in knowing more about its significance to Black culture.
