Good Hair Day – March 26, 2023

We celebrate Good Hair Day every year on March 26. The haircare brand known as Good Hair Day, shortened as G.H.D. is behind the initiative to dedicate a day to making women feel gorgeous and empowered on Good Hair Day. March is a terrific month to celebrate being a woman, especially because March 8 is International Women’s Day. Good Hair Day is a day to celebrate one of your most valuable assets — your hair. When your hair looks and feels fantastic, it instantly boosts your confidence, which is something that we could all use. Good Hair Day is an exciting opportunity to celebrate women’s empowerment while also having a little fun.

History of Good Hair Day

In 2001, three Yorkshire entrepreneurs Martin Penny, Gary Douglas, and Susan Powls, introduced a revolutionary new hair styling product to ladies all over the world. G.H.D. swiftly established a cult-like status across the country, thanks to the respect and commitment of an army of passionate stylists. In 2020, G.H.D., a hair tool company, launched a campaign called Good Hair Day. It’s a day dedicated to celebrating women and making them feel good about themselves.

This day is for all women, regardless of their hair type. It provides several opportunities for women to celebrate themselves and one another. We all know that having excellent hair makes you feel good, which is why so many women treat themselves to a new hairstyle even when they aren’t feeling well. Everyone gets the chance to honor oneself by dedicating a day to fantastic hair.

Good Hair Day is also an Afro-Finnish collective. The for-us-by-us principle guides their operations, which implies that the Afro Finns define their means of representation and participate actively in the process. The annual Good Hair Day event is used by Afro-Finns to enhance afro hair care knowledge, broaden representations, and assist with the creation of safer environments for women of color to have their hair needs to be catered to.
