Join us Wednesday, March 3, 2021 from 6-7pm at NICC for Daddy/Daughter Hair Care Night. Class #80229

Ok, Dad, it’s your turn to get your daughter ready for school, and she needs you to fix her hair.  If you’re more comfortable with a screwdriver in your hand than a hair brush, let us help you learn some basic hair care and styling tricks. Bring your daughter and our hairdresser will teach you how to braid, make a ‘messy’ bun, and even do a French twist.  Your little girl is counting on you to do what she can’t do on her own, so make sure you’re up to the task!
