Dear Short Hair
Whether natural, curls, permed, pixie, finger-waved or a bob, having short hair has stirred up several controversial conversations and perspectives surrounding the topics of beauty, feminism, sexuality, fashion, and culture. For years we have lived in a society where individuals who have made “the big chop” were viewed as rebelling . But rebelling from what? Our beauty nor should our feminism, be defined by the length of our hair. We are beautiful and it is time to embrace it! Entrepreneur and curator La'China B. introduced an event that was one of many fundraisers for her brand, " The College Girl", and first of many empowering outlets to come. The Dear Short Hair Panel is definitely an event to add on your bucket list!

THE ART EXHIBIT
The Dear Short Hair, panel discussion focuses on allowing individuals who have broken the barrier of society’s perspective on “beauty” to embrace and own what they believe is their true beauty. The panel consists of those who do not let their career paths, nor dreams, become defined by the length or the style of their hair. They have experienced the ups and downs of change, and regurgitated it into their personal growth and journeys.
The Dear Short Hair art exhibit, features a few of NYC's most talented artists. Each artist are given a platform to display and sell pieces of some of society's iconic women with short hair to pay homage to the journey. This segment of the event also includes performances and acts of honor for influencers such as Lauren "Lu Lu" Williams and Kyrzayda Rodriguez. With stories from such powerful women, the goal of this event is to encourage those who are fighting with self confidence and change to live in their truths.
