About Afros & Rizos
Our Mission is...
To inspire, empower and help others create their own beauty standards through a series of educational and interactive events and programming.
What we offer…
We currently have two formats you can select from: an event or a program.
Our events are our larger productions. The event is about 3-4 hours and is usually for 50+ guest. We provide the materials and personnel for the Inspire Stations, EmpowerTalk Panel and our Create Your Own Standards Beauty Bars.
Our programs are our smaller productions. These range from 45 minutes to 1 hour and for up to 50 people or less. We provide all the materials and personnel needed for the programs.
Each event has a panel discussion that we call our “EmpowerTalk Panel”
Our panel discussion includes experts and Influencers from different fields such as Natural Hair & Beauty, Health & Fitness, Corporate, Education, Art, Media, and many more.
Each event has Beauty Bars that we call Create Your Own Standards Beauty Bars
These beauty bars educate each participant on topics ranging from hair and skin care, nutrition, fitness, mindfulness or self-love.
The event’s foundation is 5 interactive stations that we call our “Inspire Stations”.
These stations are all hands on and each participant is able to walk away with a deliverable.
Each station is designed to inspire confidence, develop networking skills, and promote self-love and expression.
Each event has a performance that fits within one of the event series pillars.
Performances can range from singing, spoken word, interpretive dance or a skit.
The programs all begin with an “Inspire Icebreaker”.
These icebreakers are all hands on and are designed to inspire a safe sharing space.
Each program will consist of an “EmpowerShop” geared toward empowering our guest through hair, mental health, and healthy lifestyles.
