 The 6th annual ‘Beauty for Tweens’ (B4T) event, held recently at Woodlawn Presbyterian Church, has been hailed as a triumph for the community. Young ladies were given a spark of wellness through the teaching of healthy beauty practices empowering them for life.

Specifically designed for “tween,” girls ages 8-12, the event aimed to help them discover their inner and outer beauty. The afternoon was filled with enriching talks and hands-on activities led by licensed professionals including cosmetologists (Gwen’dlyn Stroud-Anderson), nail technicians (Akili Colson), and adolescent mental health therapists (Khaliah Bryant). The experts shared invaluable tips, conducted tutorials on hair and nail care, and engaged in an interactive Q&A session. Attendees were treated to not just knowledge but also hair product giveaways, door prizes, and swag bags filled with valuables.

“It was such a hit that plans are already underway for the next year, at the same welcoming location, we are thankful for Woodlawn’s support and all the attendees who made this event a part of their journey to self-discovery and confidence,” said organizer Gwen Stroud. The community event was a testament to the events six years of celebrating and empowering initiative for tweens beauty, health and wellness
