With the upcoming election cycle I want to encourage people to vote in the local elections as well as national so that all our voices can truly be heard. "The right to vote is something we are so lucky to have," Kitsch CEO Cassandra Thurswell said in a press release. "We want the 'VOTE' bobby pin to serve as a constant reminder of our voices and the opportunities they offer us to make direct change.
Justine Marjan is one of the stylists responsible for the Great Barrette Renaissance of 2019, and she's most known for statement barrettes like Selena Gomez's "ugly" hair clip or the Instagram-famous "feelings. " But for 2020, Marjan is pulling her hair back for a good cause.
As Marjan wrote on Instagram, it was Kerry Washington who encouraged her to get involved. "Everyone who knows me knows that I have a passion for social justice and am eager to educate," Marjan wrote. "I know a lot of people who are unaware of the issues directly affecting them and their local communities.
In a partnership with Kitsch and nonprofit organization When We All Vote, Marjan has launched a "vote" bobby pin.
All the proceeds will be donated to help increase voter turnout in 2020. https://t.co/XNzFQqbIwl— Allure (@Allure_magazine) January 6, 2020
