While at home during COVID-19 quarantine, how are you spending your time? These artists and industry leaders are offering free resources for your personal and professional growth to stay active and positive.
[This list will be updated in the coming days/weeks.]
RESOURCES FROM ARTISTS:
Free braiding education from Alison Valsamis (@braidedandblonde)
So we’re going to be home guys. There’s no way around it. And once upon a time braiding became a life saving therapy for me during my darkest time. . . Let’s put down the phones, stay away from the 24-hour news cycle, and take a breathe. What better way to use this time then to sharpen our skills and practice our craft so we can be even better when we all come back from this! It’ll be available to watch at your own pace and you will have the videos forever. . . . Peace and Love ❤️ Alison
Styling education and updo challenges from Jenny Strebe (@theconfessionsofahairstylist)
Everyday for 30 days I’ll be doing a live Demo on up styling, braids or styling prep. This is in my effort to help keep our creative minds busy during this weird transition. What is so great about this time at home is we can use it as a time to reset our goals, intentions and be human sponges with education. Great time to pick up the old doll head, dust her off and learn a new skill. Let’s go back to work better then ever with some new skills under our belt.
Texture education from Leysa Carrillo and Forever Curls Education
Uplifting education from Nina Kovner (@passionsquared)
Loves. Please press pause.😌 . . It’s been a long, heavy, stressful couple weeks.😞 . . Please get some rest. Unplug for a bit. Your mental health needs you to press pause, rest and practice self care. This is gonna be a marathon, not a sprint. There is so much work to be done to take care of our communities, families, clients, teams, selves and each other. But we can’t do that if we are running on empty. 🙏🏼 . . And please be kind to one another. And to yourself. Please do your best to focus on what you have control over. Please do your best to practice compassion, empathy and healthy boundaries, online and off. Please do your best to not project your fear and anxiety onto each other.❤️ . . We’re proud of you. And we love you. Love- Nina 😴

🌑The new moon is a time to set intention. We are coming into a new beginning, a fresh start..a massive, collective reset. . 🌟Join me live for a guided meditation on zoom...the closest we can get to being together in a real life gathering. . Grab your blankets, candles, notebooks, and crystals as we go inward and plant a seed of intention during this powerfully energetic time. . ⭐️I will share with you what’s happening astrologically and how we can harness this fire energy and find peace & flow even through chaotic times.
