A Nappy Hair Affair 9.23.2007

UnPressed Release!

Wrap-A-Loc Workshop and Hair Day Happening!
Wrap-a-Loc Inventor Sistah Nandi Gilkey

Wrap your locks around this!

Sonya Nandi Gilkey, the Atlanta-based inventor of the revolutionary dual hair-styling tool and lock-wrapping technique is coming to Dallas to teach workshop participants how to turn ordinary locks into beautiful spiral curls!

The Wrap-A-Lock Workshop, sponsored by A Nappy Hair Affair (ANHA), will be held on Sunday, Sept. 23, from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. at the Ice House Cultural Center, 1004 W. Page St., Dallas, TX.

The workshop will be followed by ANHA's traditional Hair Day gathering which will be held from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. www.nappyhairaffair.com.

Professional hair stylists who want to offer their clients versatile styling options, have eagerly embraced the Wrap-A-Loc workshops which are conducted internationally. But the easy-to-understand workshops are also popular among regular folks who prefer styling their hair themselves.

The versatile Wrap-A-Loc tool can actually be worn undetectable in the hair as part of the style.When removed, it creates a head full of curls that are ready to be styled.

The Wrap-A-Loc Workshop fee is $75 per person. Products and material will be available for purchase.

Register online today at www.wrapaloc.com . Seating limited.

At the workshop you will:

* ~ Get hands-on training on how to master use of the Wrap-A-Loc tool
~Learn unique styles for dramatic transformations
~Get quality results with long-lasting curls
~Have an opportunity to add new clientele to your existing client base
~Generate additional revenue from clients for performing Wrap-A-Loc services
~Generate additional revenue through supplemental product distribution
~Receive certificate showing completion of training and ability to perform the technique.

Even if you do not participate in the workshop you will have an opportunity to meet "Sistah Nandi" and purchase her products at the Hair Day gathering. Doors will open for Hair Day at 3:30 p.m. Donation is $3 for youths and adults. "Village-trained" children, free.

Hair Day is a grass-roots, social gathering where the emphasis is placed on grooming natural and African-inspired hairstyles. Most of the participants are not stylists but ordinary people who come seeking someone to do their hair and are willing to return the favor. Relaxation, networking and creative expression also take place at these events. While the emphasis is placed on celebrating hair with Africa at its roots, people of all hair textures are welcome to attend and participate!

Hair Day participants bring a pot luck dish, snacks or non-alcoholic drink to share at the gathering. If you want to get your hair done, bring your own towel and hair products.

The Wrap-A-Loc Workshop and Hair Day gathering is supported in part by the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
