The Look of Love Niya Parks President & Founder



The Look of Love: Haircare for Foster Children was founded in 2016, and launched on “Global Hug Your Child Day” 2018.

Through collaborative partnerships with service providers throughout the western United States, we provide desperately needed haircare services to abused and neglected children in the foster care system, and homeless youth in search of employment.


As a new haircare and salon program for foster children and homeless youth, our primary goal is to provide free haircare services to children and youth in need. We strive to build self-esteem, provide love and encouragement, and despite the pains of the past, inspire the children to pursue their dreams.

Living in our world, we are constantly reminded of the importance of appearance, and the impact that appearance plays on a person’s self-esteem, how others judge us, and our opportunities to excel. Because many children already come from broken and abusive homes, their spirits are already wounded. That is why it is so crucial that our organization partners with members of our community like you to help bring much needed support and services to vulnerable children in need.

Your contributions bless youth and children in need!
