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.
