Calling all curly girls! NOLA’s RisasRizos hosts ‘Rizos on the Road Presented by Kia Motors,’ May 12

Written by  IntheNOLA.com
Calling all NOLA curly girls! One of our favorite resident curly girls, Ms. Rocio Mora aka RisasRizos will be hosting the next installment of Rizos on the Road Presented by Kia Motors on Friday, May 12 from 7:00pm-10:00pm at the Peoples Health New Orleans Jazz Market (1436 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.).
 
“Rizos on the Road Presented by Kia Motors is a national tour uniting Latina women looking to celebrate curls and embrace their Afro-Latina roots,” explained Rocio. “The tour is focused on educating, empowering, and bringing cultural-diversity awareness in hyperlocal events across the nation with an emphasis on discussions surrounding Afro-Latinidad with stops in multiple cities. Our kickoff was in Miami, FL and we’re excited to have our next stop here in my hometown of New Orleans! After New Orleans, we’ll be visiting Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago, and finishing the tour in New York City.”
Rocio and Ada Rojas of All Things Ada will welcome all their curly friends this Friday. “There will be two live haircuts taking place as well as a live Q+A Panel Discussion with NaturallyCurly.com,” Rocio added. “We will also have a hair product swap for guests who would like to bring in new or gently used hair products to exchange for others that might work best for their curls in addition to offering complimentary scalp massages to stimulate hair growth, light bites to appease the appetite, and a curly cocktail to celebrate the night! Each VIP guest will also go home with a gift bag filled with $100 worth of products from our sponsors!”
 
With two curly-haired women at the #HouseofIntheNOLA, the #LadiesofIntheNOLA (Heather and LaTesha) are definitely looking forward to this event!
 
Rocio continued, “If anyone has a younger sister, daughter, cousin, niece, etc., we encourage you to bring her! Confidence is very important in all aspects of life, especially when it comes to hair. It’s very inspiring for young girls with naturally curly hair to be surrounded by other women who love and embrace their curls!”
 
She concluded, “It’s extremely exciting for me to celebrate this beautiful message in New Orleans! I have worked so hard on putting this tour together, so to be partnering with a brand like Kia who has supported and believed in what we are doing for this community, especially in my hometown, means a lot to me. Make sure to follow the hashtag #RizosOnTheRoad and @KiaLatino on Instagram and Facebook for all of our updates!”
