On Monday, April 3, students gathered on the Miron Student Center Patio for a special event. From 3 to 5 p.m., Kean P.U.L.S.E. Programming Board presented its latest event, “Love is in the Hair.”
“The point of the event was to teach students how to love and take care of their hair,” said Victoria Talharim, member of Kean P.U.L.S.E. Programming Board.
This event recognized all hair types and encouraged everyone to embrace their beautiful and unique hair. In collaboration with the Cultural and Health committee, the organization aimed to educate the Kean community on how to care for their hair.
“Love is in the Hair” had six stationed tables with free giveaways for the participants. There was also an opportunity for students to win a free T-shirt if they guessed the celebrity by their hair. The following are some of the free items that were provided at the event:
- Hair Oil
- Hair CapsBonnets
- Hair Masks
- And More!
Giveaways weren’t the only freebies at the event. If desired, students had the option of getting their hair styled. Haircuts and braiding sessions were available and accessible to attendees.
“It makes all students with different types of hair feel included and seen on campus. It also gives them a chance to do self-care for themselves because we all deserve it,” said Student Amber Ortiz.
Aside from all things hair, students also had the opportunity to eat from the two available food trucks. Good Mood Food Truck offered students burgers, tacos, and fries, while Lexylicious offered ice cream sandwiches.
“I love things like this on campus because I get to experience new things and meet new people,” said Student Cylia Blackmon.
This event showed Kean’s commitment to inclusivity by representing all possible hair types. “Love is in the Hair” truly allowed students to meet new people, get some freebies, and learn how to care for their hair.
