Hair Theory & the History of Curly Hair
In this module, Embrace students will gain knowledge about the geographical, cultural and ethnic origins of curly hair as well as current demographics and statistics. Students will learn the historical implications of curly hair, particularly Black or "afro" hair, from its origin, to slavery in the Americas and colonisation in Africa. We will explore the Human Rights and Civil Rights movements and how curly hair has been a relevant part of social and political conversations for generations. Students will leave this module with an understanding of the social stigmas around curly hair and will be equipped with the appropriate language to combat negative stereotypes within themselves and empower their clients.
