Summer is here and the lady known as Music City USA is already deep into the heat, with some exciting community activities. On Sunday, July 30, Centennial Park is the place to be for adults and kids of all ages, so save the date and pencil it in. The popular top rated radio and television show I Just Got My Hair Did, 92Q, media personality team will launch their inaugural ‘Beauty NIC.’ The I Just Got My Hair Did team is comprised of Yolonda ‘Yolo-Bee’ Beech, Chris Bond and Tanya Davis, who host Nashville’s first hair talk show. The show airs every Saturday at 5 pm on 92.1, WQQK, a Cumulus Station and Bounce TV. The show has received top ratings and a wide listener and viewership in the short time they have been on air.

The mission of ‘Beauty NIC’ is to show appreciation to beauty industry professionals, their clients, family and friends. This unforgettable community picnic will have food, fun, vendors and mega activities for everyone.

Attendees will also enjoy a specialty Bike Show, Car Show, and some of the hottest and most talented entertainment, ranging from comedy to gospel to secular to professional and freestyle musicians. When thinking of ‘Beauty NIC,’ think family-oriented food and fantastic fun. The team invites the public to bring their kids, grandparents, parents, family and friends.

On ‘Beauty NIC’ day, there won’t be any hair or beauty services provided. ‘Beauty NIC’ is a day to relax and to celebrate. To add more flair to the day, listen up for a live broadcast from the I Just Got My Hair Did crew on 92.Q. Join in at Centennial Park from 11 am to 6 pm, CST.

At press time, the I Just Got My Hair Did team shared a well-rounded synopsis. “Beauty salons and barber shops are places not only to get your hair done but locations where African Americans have conversations about their community. When you step into a barbershop, you can usually find men playing chess, cards, or dominoes while talking about what’s going on in politics, sports, and the Black community. In beauty salons conversations are usually called the town’s gossip.

There have been many film adaptations on African American themes to show Black culture in the United States, through films like Coming to America in 1988, Malcolm X in 1992, and Barber Shop in 2002. Over the years, beauty salons and barbershops have come to provide a unique social platform and are used for grass roots marketing. Still, Blacks are losing control over the African American hair care market. African Americans have lost business as a result of mergers and acquisitions. For example, the top two-Black owned hair care companies (Johnson Products and Soft Sheen) were recently joined under L’Oreal’s ownership. Korean businesses are aware of the kind of money Black communities invest in their hair care and they want a part of it.

Shelley Garrett, an internationally renowned playwright, producer and director launched a successful stage play in 1984 titled Beauty Shop, a comedic tell-all about the beauty shop which stays true to history and culture.

The objective with the I Just Got My Hair Did talk show is to bring awareness to a broader audience through an hour segment on one of the most talked about stations in Nashville. The I Just Got My Hair Did team is providing knowledge and informative information about the past, present and future climate of the beauty industry.
