Styles 4 Kidz founder and executive director Tamekia Swint is one of four women featured in the November 2019 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine "devoted to making her community a bit happier and healthier."

Swint oversees Styles 4 Kidz, a nonprofit located at 20 Lake St. that provides professional hair care services to African-American children in foster care and adoptive biracial families. 

"Hair is a middle ground where you can find a black mom alongside a white mom offering her support," Swint said in the feature, located on page 29 of the issue.
