Teen Texture Camp, a free back-to-school style workshop hosted by Hi Texture Salon, aims to empower and equip teen girls with the knowledge and skills to understand their hair texture, care for their hair, and build self-confidence. Designed to address the unique challenges faced by Black girls in styling their hair, the camp offers hands-on training in basic hair regimens and go-to hairstyles to take participants through the school year.


During the tween and teen years, many girls begin to become more self-aware and desire independence in styling their hair. However, Black girls often face additional challenges due to the specific needs of their hair texture. Teen Texture Camp seeks to resolve this by providing a supportive environment where attendees can learn essential skills from resident stylists at Hi Texture Salon.


The half-day camp, tailored for tweens and teens aged 10-16, focuses on equipping participants with the skills and knowledge to care for their hair effectively. Topics covered include information about hair texture and products, basic hair regimens, cleansing and conditioning techniques, as well as hands-on skills for executing popular styles such as two-strand twists, flat twists, Wash-and-Gos, and more.


India Bertin, owner of Hi Texture Salon, emphasized the importance of the camp, stating, “When you’re a teen or tween, hair is everything. For the team at Hi Texture, this is more than a camp. This is a service to our community. We are equipping the next generation of Black women to embrace their texture and wear it confidently.”


Testimonials from parents, such as Shameka B., highlight the positive impact of the camp on participants. Shameka shared, “My daughter had been struggling with her self-esteem during her first year of middle school. After the camp, she was inspired and learned how to take care of her hair.”
