To all of our BraidBaes and all others reading,
It has come to our attention that we have not given enough consideration to the cultures that we have drawn from in creating The Braid Bar, particularly Black culture. Having been naive, our eyes are now open to issues that we were not so aware of when we first started. We would like to reach out and apologise to all of those who have been offended by our lack of cultural sensitivity, and promise that from this point onwards, you will see changes in the way that we do things.
The Braid Bar is a welcoming and fun place for people of all races, ethnicities, genders, and ages; an environment that is all-inclusive and accessible to everyone. We are going to ensure that this ethos is reflected in everything we do and post from now on. We understand that it is our responsibility, as a company with a broad social media following, to teach and spread the knowledge of where these ideas, practices and skills originally come from and the stories that come with them. Particularly NOW, in a world that needs us to be united more than ever.
We are a small, young company and this has been a steep learning curve for us. Over the coming months we will be growing and evolving with a sensitivity that was lacking before and we want you all to be involved. We hope you will stay tuned, and we are always open to hearing your ideas.
The Braid Bar
