Back to School is not just limited to learning going to school is a social experience and its important that children and teens feel included in their school society. One way to achieve is this is by encouraging positive self esteem, a child's appearance is important to helping them feel good about themselves. A fresh hair cut, and new hair style can be great confidence boosters. To help with hair ideas NWM, Five Barbers and local salons have teamed up to create the My Natural My Way kids & Teen Hair Show. Young girls and boy will have the opportunity to showcase popular hair styles for the upcoming school year. To enter your child into the Hair Show please click here for model call info.
