Posted November 13, 2018 17:12:10 The children of Lynwood have been given a new hairstyle for their new Christmas.
The Lynwood Herald Sun reports that a new haircut has been introduced to their local community.
The new haircut is the latest to help the children learn about different hairstyles and to teach them about their families roots.
“I don’t think it’s just for them, it’s for all the children in the community to get an education about their heritage,” said Lynwood Community Health Service Manager, Paul McLean.
“So I think this is just a small part of that process.”
The new hairstyles are not compulsory but are being offered to children who want to change their hairstyle and their families background.
“They’re trying to educate children about different hair styles so they can get an understanding of what it means to have different hair on a child,” said Dr McLean who is also the Chief Operating Officer of the Lynwood Council.
“For some kids they have been taught they should have a very long black hair on their head or be blonde or brunette, but for others it might be a little longer or a little shorter.”
“So what we’ve done is really try and make the haircut accessible to kids, make it a little more of a fun haircut for them to try on.”
Dr McLean said the hairstyle was part of the program to teach the children how to look and dress, and that they were encouraged to share the pictures and videos of their hairstyles on social media.
The hairstyle is not mandatory, but is offered to the children who can demonstrate they want to learn.
“We’re really hoping it can teach kids to look like they have their own style,” Dr Mclean said.
The haircut is a new look for the Lynwoods children.
“It’s really important for them so they don’t become like other children who go with a haircut every time,” Dr Dunlop said.
“And I think that’s a great thing.
You know, you can be a child and do your own thing, you know, but you can learn from your peers.”
Dr Dunlops mother said she wanted to be a hairstylist herself, but she was unsure of where to start.
“That’s why I’m so happy that Lynwood is doing this, it will be very helpful to my daughter and her friends,” Dr Duncan said.
Lynwood Council’s Chief Operating Executive, Paul Dunlott, said they had been doing their best to make the hairstyles accessible to children and their parents.
“The community has had to adapt, we’ve had to get creative, we had to put some creative ideas into place,” he said.
