Class is in session! What if you could have a good hair day, every day right on your college campus? 
Eva NYC is now sold at select college bookstores! This school year, we decided to major in good hair days. We are so excited to announce our first ever inaugural class of Eva NYC college representatives. Chosen for their love of beauty, haircare + all things Eva NYC. 
It was a no-brainer to search for star students who could speak to this exciting opportunity. The ultimate college student is so influential, we wanted to give students an opportunity to work alongside Eva NYC to gain experience in the beauty industry, but most importantly have fun connecting on campus. These collegiate connoisseurs are passionate, involved, and filled with school pride. 

For the first time in Eva NYC history, we are excited to introduce our 2022 Campus Manes!

Tell us about you: BA dance major with a minor in advertising and health promotion. I am a dancer and am part of the Florida Gators Dazzlers dance team. I’m from Miami, Florida. I love to travel and am always finding new music to listen to. 

What’s your hair type: I have curly hair and am a mix between 3B and 3C curl type.

Kaitlyn Martinez – Texas A&M University

Tell us about you: I’m a biomedical engineering major from Temple, TX. I love running, plants and driving with the windows down. 

What’s your hair type: My hair type is 3B. 

Tell us about your hair journey: My hair journey started with straightening my hair everyday for years in middle school because I had no idea how to control my hair. All of my friends had straight or wavy hair and I couldn’t even get a brush through mine. I didn’t like that my hair was different and so hard to work with. Until one summer after spending a lot of time in and out of the pool I realized I really liked the way my natural hair looked and wished I knew how to style it so I could have curly hair everyday.

And that started my journey of experimenting with products and methods that worked best for my hair. I’m still figuring it out as my hair grows and changes with me, but I love that my hair is curly, unique and truly me and I love finding products that enhance this like Eva NYC. I think my focus today is keeping my hair happy and healthy, and advocating that curly and textured hair belongs in all places all the time.

From the classroom to the boardroom and the sports field, your hair, however you want to wear it, is undeniably beautiful and more than acceptable but rather exceptional.
