The Return to the Natural

Thu, Feb 12 / 6 pm

Over the past decades a groundswell of activity and dialogue around natural hair has emerged. Unlike hairstyles that require synthetic processing or processes, natural hair champions the natural as beautiful.

Join stylists, artists, academics and the public for a dialogue on the complexities of natural verses processed hair. Exploring the cultural significance of natural hair today, the evening salon The Return to the Natural brings together informal dialogues with hands-on hairdressing in MAD’s Artist Studios.

Participants Include Ayana Byrd, Renae Bluitt, Nakeya Brown, Cipriana Quann, Michael July and will be moderated by Dr. Yaba Blay.

Please review our health and safety protocols before you arrive. MAD strongly recommends all visitors six months and older are vaccinated against Covid-19 and visitors ages two and up wear face coverings, even if vaccinated. Thank you for your cooperation.
