Loc Lov, the award-winning D.C. hair salon specializing in natural hair care and loc artistry, will host “When Hair Meets Fashion,” a charity runway show that will bring chic, African-inspired high fashions and tribal hair artistry to the D.C. area.

The event, which takes place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 6 at the Silver Spring Civic Center in Silver Spring, Md., serves to raise funds and awareness for Heart to Hand Inc., a community-based organization that provides support, education and resources to promote healthy lifestyles, decrease health disparities, and increase access to quality health care.

“I wanted to create an event that invokes beauty, fashion, but most importantly, pride,” Loc Lov owner Salih Watts said in a statement. “When Hair Meets Fashion is about drawing artists together to celebrate their craft and to commemorate the rich heritage behind African inspired design and natural hair styling. It’s such an honor be able to gather some of the most talented creatives to create a night that benefits an awesome cause — Heart to Hand Inc.”
