BeYOUtiful Health & Hair Show

On Sunday, September 8th, the Texas Black Women’s Health Initiative in Houston (Houston BWHI) hosted a health and hair show: the 2019 beYOUtiful Health & Hair Show. This show worked to increase awareness of the factors contributing to disparities in HIV outcomes for Black women.

The beYOUtiful Health & Hair show featured panel discussions on health, love, and life. Over 250 participants were able to be a part of courageous conversations on health. Participants were introduced to ways they can embrace self-love and self-care and given messages to help them realize their self-worth. The beYOUtiful Health & Hair show featured an all-female barber battle, a vendor expo, and a hair and fashion show.
