Hair Love Retreat has already been an absolutely magical experience, filled to the brim with good vibes and instant friendships. The retreat has only just begun, and it’s already been so wonderful and memorable!
Here’s a little recap of what happened on Day One!
Arrival & Opening Ceremonies
Around 5pm, all the beautiful tribe babes arrived in Hair Love branded shuttles, got checked in, and received their swag backpacks. The Hair Love RV was parked right by the check in station, and all the tribe members got their photos taken in front of it.
After getting glamping and bunk room assignments, we gathered for dinner with amazing food by renowned celebrity Chef Shon, champagne, and introductions.
After dinner, Elizabeth Faye, founder and CEO of Hair Love Retreat, gave an amazing opening speech about identifying and conquering fears.
Here is a quote from our Instagram post about the night:
“Tonight after an amazing dinner, we identified our fears. We openly shared the narratives we’ve been telling ourselves that simply aren’t true. We addressed the fears that are holding us back. And tonight as a tribe, we burned those fears. We literally lit them on fire in the Utah wilderness. Those fears do not belong to us anymore. 🔥🔥🔥🔥
They are smoke. They are ash. There is now more space and energy to focus on what we want and beyond. This is what Hair Love is all about. Letting go of the anchors holding us on to “alright” or “ok” or “not good enough” and heading toward something better. .
And the best part is, we’re surrounded by people who will support us on our divine missions. This is Hair Love”
Following Elizabeth’s remarks, the Hair Love Tribe did a thought exercise about identifying their fears and then burning them safely in a trash can. It was an amazing experience.
Tribe babe Lucia Balmes had some wonderful things to say about the retreat so far.
“I think it’s really important to identify your fears because so often they sit in the back of our mind with a quiet repetitive voice that holds us back and keeps us from being our true selves. To actually take the time to list them out and see them written out is powerful because it helps you discover that its not reality. It also gives us power to change those thoughts and move past them and not be captive to them anymore.”
Lucia says that key takeaways from the night were that we should all continue to identify our fears and work through them. She said it was powerful to hear more some Hair Love Leaders speak openly about their fears. It helped her realize that they often has similar fears as everyone else.
As for the rest of the retreat, Lucia is really excited for the education to start. The retreat has only just begun, and after spending a little time on mindset and wellness, Hair Love becomes all about technical workshops, certification, and in-depth education.
We are SO EXCITED for the rest of the retreat and all the amazingness that is yet to come. Stay tuned for more updates as the retreat continues!
