"Inherent in my message has always been to respect and support each other. Now, more than ever, please let us extend that respect and support to the black community. We recognize that there's racial bias in our industry, and we're looking at our practices to ensure we continue to become more inclusive," says Villa.
"I've always made it a point to highlight incredible artists on my platforms and am honored to join Sam in celebrating these incredible stylists and moving the needle forward within the beauty industry," explains Shorter.Goals of The Fabric of Change Event:
- Change the perception that hair texture is directly linked to the race of the hairdresser - all hairdressers should embrace and be skilled in all hair textures.
- Change the way education is provided to be more inclusive - black hairdressers and educators have been under-represented on stage and online.
Each artist will have a 30 minute segment live-streamed simultaneously on both Facebook: @SamVillaPros
and YouTube: @SamVillaHair
