A Letter from Our Founder, Lacy:
Whether or not we want to admit it, our world will never be the same world it was before May 25th.While our world may never be the same, let’s pledge together to make it a safer, more inclusive, and all around better one.
There are no words that can accurately delineate the gravity of this situation. The struggle for equality for black Americans is far from over, and it’s clear that we have a lot of work to do individually as well as collectively, and starting immediately.
The beauty community, and especially the hair community, have a long way to go in regards to racism, colorism, and equality of opportunity.
At Laced Hair pledge to do to fight racism in our community:
- To further our efforts to promote the beauty in diversity, with more women of color, particularly black women at each photo shoot.
- Promote black stylists’ work at each opportunity given.
- Increase our staff diversity.
- Educate on the racial disparities still prevalent in our society, whether it be at home, listening to black voices, or having uncomfortable discussions regarding race.
While these actions are not the solution to the overwhelming tragedies black Americans have faced and continue to face, we recognize that it is our responsibility to do what we can and help where we can.
The solution to racism starts with us.
