Happy Juneteenth Pennsylvania’s Hair Braiding License is Going to Court!

Okay, #SuperNaturals

Today’s more that Juneteenth to me most you you know my thoughts on Juneteenth and the ignorance of knowing we were free.

Well today I woke up to GREAT 💯 news. The Hair Braiders are going to court. But this time with an expert patent infringement attorney.

☝🏾I have attached his ( John Shaw of ShawKeller, LLP) press release to this post.

✔️Please read it, share it, and walk in your POWERS on Juneteenth ‼️

PHILADELPHIA—Pennsylvania’s mandatory license for hair braiding still stands even after a commonwealth government study found that the license blocks opportunities and is unnecessary to protecting the public. Gov. Tom Wolf admitted the state should eliminate the license because it blocks hardworking people from, “getting a good job, supporting their families and growing our economy.” Today, 2 years after the Governor’s comments, three Pennsylvania braiders launched a lawsuit to finally unravel the unnecessary and burdensome requirement.

New World Order

Astou Diop, Tanyita Henry and Awa Gaye are experienced in traditional African hair braiding, a natural technique involving no chemicals or heating implements. Each of them learned their skills at an early age, just as generations of women before them learned. Yet Pennsylvania requires 300 hours of unnecessary training and a computerized test before these women can braid for paying customers. John Shaw, of Shaw Keller LLP, filed the suit on behalf of the braiders at the Commonwealth Court in Harrisburg.

“Braiding is so safe that no natural hair braider in Pennsylvania has ever received a health or safety complaint,” said Shaw. “Yet braiders are still required to get hundreds of hours of training, much of it in subjects that have nothing to do with braiding. The Pennsylvania Constitution protects the braiders’ right to earn a living. Right now, they have to stop working to get completely unnecessary training.”

While Pennsylvania mandates 300 hours of training to acquire a license, no cosmetology school offers close to that number of hours of education in braiding. Additionally, Pennsylvania has only licensed two braiders to teach natural hair braiding, with one of these individuals living in New Jersey. This means that in order to comply with the law, natural braiders must take hours of instruction in cosmetology practices that they do not intend to offer.

“My shop is completely focused on natural hair braiding and I only employ natural braiders,” said Astou Diop, the owner and manager of a shop in Philadelphia. “Braiders can’t put their careers on hold to get training that doesn’t improve their skills and that isn’t needed to keep people safe.”

“This is an issue for communities across Pennsylvania including near State College,” said Tanyita Henry who lives in Bellefonte, 9 miles from Penn State’s campus. “There are too few resources for black students and residents outside of Philly. I want to open a salon to meet their hair needs.”

Currently 28 states allow braiders to practice without a license, and legislation to eliminate the braiding license is currently awaiting the Florida governor’s signature. Among them, three states bordering Pennsylvania do not license the practice: Delaware, Maryland and West Virginia. Even among the few states that require a license for braiders, Pennsylvania’s requirements stand out as exceptionally burdensome. Only Louisiana requires more training, 500 hours, and that state’s requirement is also being challenged in court.

Following a June 2018 study by the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs focused on identifying any overly broad or overly burdensome Pennsylvania occupational license, Governor Wolf called for the elimination of the braiding license. Pennsylvania’s Acting Deputy Secretary for Regulatory Programs and Commissioner of Professional and Occupational Affairs also recommended repeal of the license and noted that no natural hair braider in Pennsylvania had ever received a customer-driven complaint relating to health or safety.

Nail Salon OUTRAGE!

In Omaha, a beauty salon a Facebook post on racist practices dealing with the Asian community and the Coronavirus was posted.

💆Lash Goddess on 115th and Blondo is a  black woman-owned spa that offers lash and spa services. The owner Mia Will shared a Facebook post showing a white woman giving a client a pedicure.

 The post says in part, “Worried about Coronavirus?….let us do your pedicures! According to the state of Nebraska inspector, our 💇spa is VERY clean!”

Julia Gehringer who is Chinese saw it as an insult to all people from 🇨🇳China. The spa owner apologized but  Julia said it was not good enough. 

This is what she replied “ [It’s] the kind of apology that says ‘I’m sorry if you were offended’, which is a non-apology. It’s another thing to say I’m sorry you were offended versus I’m sorry I was offensive,”.

Wigs and Weaves OUTRAGE!

Now, the American 💇🏾‍♀️hair care industry said it is feeling the effects of the Coronavirus 🤧disease’s global spread.

Stephanie Nolan, owns a business named XOXO Virgin Hair. She says it has become harder for her to obtain hair from the ⛩️Southeast Asia market as well.

“Due to the🤮 coronavirus, and the measures are taken to cut down on the virus in China, people aren’t allowed to go to, or really return to, work,” she said.

Shannell Wallace said she placed an order in January to buy hair extensions from China. But, more than a month later, that order has yet to reach her doorstep.

She said her vendor told her the coronavirus is to blame.

“They [the vendor] finally reached back out to me and said due to the virus, everyone, I’m guessing, is 🛌🛌quarantined and they’re not able to go to work,” Wallace said.

“Since the coronavirus can be transmitted through💉🤧🤮 bodily fluids like saliva or mucus, people living in close quarters can easily pass the 🦠🧫virus to one another.

Look at blue Ivy’s beautiful natural hair, skin, and yes her FATHER’S features.

What child you know that does not look like it’s legal father?

If Jay-Z was not the father these old hags would love to have Blue Ivy drug on Marvy saying “you are not the father!”

These to women have got to go!

😠They need to be fired!

Here is a small part of the tweets but you can find the full article here.

“In the since-deleted tweet, the writer wrote, “I have a feeling the jay z face genes are about to really hit Blue Ivy, and I feel so sorry for her.” In response, Harper’s digital editor Violet Lucca tweeted, “They haven’t already?” Collins replied, “You’re right. But she’s lucky — if it happens now, she’ll definitely grow out of it. Get the ugly duckling phase done early.” Lucca then added: “Or she’ll get plastic surgery at 16 a la Kylie Jenner, and we’ll all have to pretend that she always looked that way…I can’t allow myself to feel too sorry for the incredibly rich!”

To Blue Ivy you are beautiful just the way you are baby!

Don’t let nobody take that away from you!

💰Riches cannot bring you the beauty that you have within.

Big Chop Update: Natural Hair Liberation by Rickey Lake

Hi #SuperNaturals,

I’m happy to bring you the good new of our sister being liberated from harsh chemicals, religious hair routine and confinement when your extentions are loose.

We are happy for you Rickey and wish you much success on your Big Chop journey.

Rickeys Words

“Free of the maintenance every 10-12 days, where my added hair would need to be tightened (sometimes painfully) and my gray hair would need to be colored.

I felt like I was a slave to this maintenance schedule.

Rickey Lake Buzz Cut

I wouldn’t go out of town longer than 12 days, because of this. I even brought my hair fairy and dear friend, to London during my stint there to do what she needed to do to keep it on my head.

Well, it is a new year and new decade and a new me.

With the love and support of some of my dearest friends, John Bonny, Mandy Ingber, Sarah Havana Prats, and my love, Jeff Scult, I buzzed my hair off and it feels so good”

Bummer Christmas Try Kwanzaa Starting December 26th – January 1st

Happy Kwanzaa

Kwanzaa

What is it?

Each December the Outreach Program receives numerous inquiries about the festival Kwanzaa.

This celebration is not a festival originating in any of the 55 African countries nor is it an “African” Christmas celebration.

Kwanzaa is an African-Americans celebration of life from 26 December to 1 January.

Dr. Maulana Karenga introduced the festival in 1966 to the United States as a ritual to welcome the first harvests to the home.

Dr. Karenga created this festival for Afro-Americans as a response to the commercialism of Christmas

Here is the full article on Kwanzaa: https://www.africa.upenn.edu/K-12/Kwanzaa_What_16661.html

The Inter-weaving of Roots By A Natural Hair Stylist

Today, was a different day.

My obsessed with my roots has taken me back ⬅️ to my childhood.

You see 👀 I’m a fourth generation cosmetologist.

My great grandmother 👵🏾, grandma, mother and I all have styled hair.

Having a home 🏠 full of 💥 Powerful Women it’s difficult to let my roots show.

Some how I equated letting go of my touch ups 🙅🏾‍♀️as being disheveled and not appropriate for outside.

But today was different I will start a new 💫 cultivation of Natural Hair Care.

Eliminating the shame and guilt of retouching and walk with my 👸🏾head high because my hair is just fine.

I have three daughters and my roots run deep throughout my👪 family.

I want them to love 💕 themselves naturally.

I’m 👩🏾‍🌾cultivating and pruning these old hair strands for a new BEGINNING!
