Today we have with us Octavia Hooks, Founder and President of Octavia’s Natural Hair Care Experience.
Octavia’s Natural Hair Care Experience is a salon with a purpose — a unique salon that will encourage and motivate social change — a salon that will inspire a movement: the Green and Natural movement.. The Green and Natural movement is the salon’s public awareness campaign. This multifaceted movement is a grass-roots call to action to impact social, economic and environmental change in Chicago’s Southland community by working to expand its livable communities – healthy, safe and walkable environments that offer timely transportation to schools, jobs, services and basic needs.
