This will be a hands-on class. The trainer, Carissa, would like everyone who has a child they plan to bring to send her a picture of the child’s hair texture and products being used on the child’s hair including: combs, brushes, shampoos, and hair creams. If needed, Carissa will send out a modified list of specific items for each child for the class. You may text Carissa the pictures at 712.326.5278 or email her at carissa.lokko@gmail.com. The sooner you send Carissa the information, the better!
