Register for Scissors Without Sight! The next HAVIN Zoom workshop is here!

HAVIN is inviting you to a special online Zoom meeting!


In the 1980s, Aretha Franklin asked the musical question, “Who’s Zoomin’ Who?”

The answer to that question in 2020 is HAVIN! That’s right, since we are waiting to reschedule our postponed 2020 HAVIN Insight Expo, the Houston Area Visually Impaired Network (HAVIN) will be bringing selected workshops to you using the Zoom platform.


We hope you were able to take part in our first HAVIN Zoom workshop. The next of these will be taking place in less than two weeks. HAVIN is much appreciative of our longtime Team Member and volunteer coordinator, Chelsea Nguyen for stepping up and offering to present this workshop. Chelsea is a Professional Cosmetologist and Owner of CN Vision Image Consulting, and for several years, also volunteered to present described audio events for the Houston Visually Impaired Community, the culmination of these skills making her the perfect person to present this virtual event.


During these unprecedented times, many of us continue to adjust to the changes in our daily lives caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic.  As the country opens back up, there still may be some uncertainty when deciding whether or not to visit barber shops and beauty salons for essential hair care needs.


The descriptive tutorial videos presented in this free workshop are designed to provide step-by-step tips and techniques to assist blind and visually impaired individuals with hair grooming and styling needs. Therefore, Professional Hairstylist and Colorist, Chelsea Nguyen, will host the next HAVIN virtual workshop, Scissors without Sight; Home Haircuts & Self-Styling with Confidence during COVID.


With over 20 years experience in the Beauty Industry and Owner of CN Vision Image Consulting, Chelsea is a Specialized Rehabilitation Trainer who develops non-visual and adaptive grooming and hygiene techniques to empower blind, low vision or disabled individuals to look and feel their best, promoting self-confidence and independence!


This workshop will be an accessible, fun, informative and interactive online How-To Training that will empower anyone with or without sight with the skills to safely cut and style their own hair in the safety of their own home no matter where they are in the world. Furthermore, this tutorial video will be recorded so that we can share it and allow viewers to review and practice it at their leisure. We will also share a list of tools and supplies so that attendees and viewers can work through these step-by-step techniques in the future.


We are in this together, and together with the HAVIN Team from Houston, Texas, we will empower you with the knowledge and skills to look and feel your best for yourself or for your next video chat with family, friends, online fans or fellow Co-Workers.  Together, we will get through this!


Registration information is below, and will close at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 15, 2020 Participation will be limited to the first 100 people who register. After registration closes, you will receive the Zoom call information. And there will be a door prize for one of those lucky attendees. So, don’t delay, get registered!
