Teenagers love wearing their hair in protective styles because it gives them the ability to get up and go. Wearing protective hairstyles also can free up a chunk of their time to do more important things like arriving at school on time or enjoying social events with friends.

I had the pleasure to attend Kidz Vuz 3rd Annual Back to School Bash here in New York City. As a parent it was amazing getting to meet the many vendors that were in attendance. Most of the businesses represented are family owned and operated. These were the vendors that stood out to me the most.
