The former stylist Michelle Obama is hosting the VH1 series with Tamar Braxton

Michelle Obama’s former hairdresser, Johnny Wright, works with Tamar Braxton “To Catch a Beautician” on VH1.

In the series, premiered Monday (9 pm), clients faced a stylist who damaged their hair. Wright then goes in and runs a beautician through the “hair camp,” giving them clues from his years of experience – and the opportunity to redeem themselves by rearranging the keys of their disgruntled clients.

“I gave up 300 clients in Chicago in 2017 to pursue a career in television,” Wright told The Post. “I dreamed of doing this since 2007 … but was interrupted by First Lady Michelle Obama when I first moved to DC to accompany her for eight years.”

Wright, a native of Chicago, first met Obama shortly after Barack Obama announced his presidential election in 2007. “My agent ordered me to shoot the cover of Essence magazine. I did it [Michelle’s] hair and we get along well, “he said. Wright continued as his personal stylist from 2009-2017, traveling with Obama to more than 40 countries while maintaining a list of celebrities including Kerry Washington, Reese Witherspoon, Lisa Ray McCoy, Janelle Monae, Candace Bushnell and Queen Latifah – charging them from $ 500- $ 550 up to $ 5,000 (for full day care).

“What I want you to take away from this event is how important communication is in every aspect of your life – especially in a hair salon,” said Wright, who first learned how to make hair from her grandmother at age 3. She graduated from Dudley Beauty College of Chicago (after working at Ebony Fashion Fair) and getting her beauty license in 2000. She worked for L’Oreal for 16 years.

“I think there is language for hair [and] if it doesn’t move it doesn’t have a voice, “he said.” Hair always says who the woman is. This is the first thing you see before she talks … So I see my career as a storyteller. “

Singer / actress Braxton (“The Real,” “Braxton Family Values”), who hosted the series with Wright, said he could connect with customers on “To Catch a Beautician.”

“The first episode really stood out to me because how many of us have problems weaving where you feel like someone is pulling your hair,” he said. “At this event you will catch a glimpse of the real me and the compassion that I have for people.

“I really want to help them.”

Mutirão Opens To Negotiation Of Individuals' Overdue Debts - Português (Brazil)

September is a very important and visible month for deaf people, with three dates that raise awareness and celebrate achievements that are part of the entire community’s trajectory and struggle. These are: – International Sign Language Day, September 23; – Day of the Deaf, 26 September; and Libra National Interpreter and Translator Day on September 30th. With a focus on the deaf community, the Department of Education is promoting several initiatives in this area.

The first is aimed at changing the scenario of educational and language policy based only on the inclusive perspective of including a deaf student in the school environment without guaranteeing procedures that enhance accessibility in his education. The National Guidelines for Bilingual Education for the Deaf integrate all stages of basic education and are based on the promotion of bilingual curricula and pedagogical practices for the deaf: Brazilian Sign Language (Libras) and written Portuguese.

Through the Department of Special Education, the MEC coordinates with interested municipalities the construction, renovation or expansion of bilingual schools for the deaf. To date, 11 locations in Brazil have shown interest in the project. To complement this phase, the Libras National Textbook Program (PNLD) provides accessible formats to deaf students and public school teachers of basic education in the country.

In the academic world, in partnership with universities, advanced training courses are offered for teachers, managers and professionals who want to work with bilingual education for the deaf. Thanks to the projects of various institutions, there are currently 3,520 vacancies for teaching the deaf.

Within the structure of the Ministry of Education, the Institute stands out as a national reference in the field of deafness, necessary to support the formulation of public policies, and then for their implementation in the field. The Institute works to promote education for deaf children, youth and adults.

Sarah’s complaint comes after the league filed a complaint against a Manchester United player for aggression against Jake in the Manchester team’s match against Everton on April 9 last season in the Premier League. After an unsuccessful result, the Portuguese dropped a fan’s mobile phone on the way to the locker room.

According to Sarah, she and her son once again became victims of offenses in social networks after the announcement of the complaint against the attacker.

“People are following me, saying that I am rebelling again, but I didn’t know anything about it. The case should have been heard six months ago. My son talks every day about what happened to him. He still hasn’t returned his phone,” he said.

“You are the future,” President Marcelo Rebelo de Souza told a three-year-old girl dressed in traditional Portuguese clothing who came out to greet him on the podium where he spoke at Artesia Portuguese Salon. The city, located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, has not hosted the President of the Portuguese Republic since 1989. This weekend, he did it with pomp and the setting of an ornate Portuguese-American community bursting with pride.

“We have never lost the honor and responsibility of being representatives of this beautiful flag,” said Jimmy Enes, a member of Artesia DES, a Portuguese descendant, in a welcoming speech delivered in perfect Portuguese. “When we are asked who we are, we always answer”i am portuguese“and not”Portuguese-American“or ‘Portuguese American’,” he said. “That’s why we’re trying step by step to protect our heritage on the outskirts of Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world.”
