ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – A local owner of a multi-cultural hair salon is working to dispel myths of ethnic hair, by hosting workshops throughout the entire month of June.

The workshops will begin June 7th and every Monday during June from 6 pm-7 pm.

The class will be focusing on celebrating all styles, product knowledge, and hair types.

Worksheets and demos will be provided. Supplies will be needed.

Covid safety protocols will be put into place.

The class is free for participants.
