Board Message

Dear Stylist:

This website comes for easy updates on local and regional events, membership and suggested prices for our trade in the great State of Oklahoma.

OBNHCA is about you: the stylist, the client, and the business owner. OBNHCA's future is dependent on all three of these groups.  It cannot survive on any one or two; all three are needed to move forward to grow us individually and as an industry within the beauty, fashion and art profession.

Thank you for the countless sacrifices made by each and every one of you for registering and launching, sponsoring and operating OBNHCA.

OBNHCA Board of Directors

  • Provide appropriate professional development to members.

With the OBNHCA behind you, your voice and concerns will be heard.
