Embrace. Empower. Enlighten. Those are the three words that meant the most to me when I started dreaming of this company. It’s a little surreal to say “company” as it was just an idea, turned into a lot a brainstorming, which turned into a lot of research and then these moments (who am I kidding, days) of feeling completing overwhelmed. Every step of the way I stayed focus on those three words and what it could mean for the Orlando community. Not only are they at the core of my own values, but they grew to be the foundation of Enlighten Us. Those are the three words that will be represented in each of our classes. We believe that through our teachers, hosting businesses, and students, those three words will help create a community that shares a love for learning and a passion for empowering the Orlando community.

With that, I present to you our first ever Enlighten Us class: Braids, Buns, & Beers! 

We’ve all been there. Standing in front of the mirror with your arms in the air (almost shaking with fatigue) trying to figure out how the heck to get your hair to look like the picture you saw on Pinterest or Instagram. They seem to be everywhere, almost mocking you. These pictures with the most effortlessly perfect, messy-but-not-too-messy topknot or fishtail braid. They make it look so easy. But when you take a stab at it, you turn out looking like Alfalfa with your layers shooting out in every direction. Finally, after the 6th attempt, you give up. WE’VE BEEN THERE TOO. That’s why we think this class is a necessity for everyone who can relate to the struggle. 

Braids can be tricky, topknots can be messy, but let’s be real here, beer is always there to help. We’ve teamed up with World of Beer Downtown Orlando and celebrity hair stylist, Stacey Wick, to teach you the techniques you need to know on how to create that perfectly undone braid or bun in the comfort of your own home. You’ll be learning exactly what products make that braid possible, how to create volume without getting your hair in a knotted mess, and which braid/bun combo you can whip out in no time. 

To celebrate this being our first ever Enlighten Us class, we’ve decided that we want to offer it to our community FREE of charge! We’re excited for Orlando to get to know Enlighten Us and we want anyone and everyone to participate in this event.  So, bring your mom, sister, friend, daughter, girlfriend, boyfriend, husband – there are no limits on who can benefit from this class! Join us on Thursday, December 13th from 7:00-9:00PM at World of Beer in Downtown Orlando for Braids, Buns, & Beers. We’re excited to meet you and have a great time!

To reserve your spot, please visit the “classes” section of our website. Don’t wait too long, we will have to close class registration once we hit capacity.

Remember, we’re always adding new classes so keep an eye out for our 2019 schedule!
