When Tamekia Swint asked me to photograph the Decades of Beauty Hair Show with Styles 4 Kidz I knew it would be an amazing event! S4K does it right every time! Styles 4 Kidz has a mission to provide high-quality, compassionate hair care education and services for kids with textured hair in foster care and transracial adoptive or biracial families. They put on the first ever Decades of Beauty Hair Show to celebrate Black hair and expression throughout the decades and help the younger generation have pride in their history.
The Salon in Oak Park is “a salon where multiracial, adoptive, and kids in foster care are empowered to embrace their natural, ethnic crown. It’s “Hair Care With Heart.”
“I’m passionate about hair care education and healthy hair for kids to get what they need to have healthy self-esteem and confidence all over the world.” –Tamekia Swint, Executive Director.
The Hair Show was a special afternoon and being in the room with so much love and cultural pride is a continuation of the amazing work S4K does in caring for kids and their families.
