Memphis stylist bringing awareness to childhood cancer month

Known around town as a shero, Brianna Davison is a woman with a big talent and an even bigger heart.

Many people know her for her unbelievably realistic wigs, having styled celebrities such as Jazmine Sullivan and Evvie McKinney; however, more recently Davison is changing the hair industry in a major way.

In 2018, after being in business for three years and praying and seeking ways to expand and be more charitable, Davison discovered her calling.

“I had a client whose granddaughter had experienced hair loss due to a terminal illness and she wanted me to create a kid-friendly style for her,” Davison said.

So, Davison went home and decided to design a wig that was more lifelike than one she had ever seen – and that was the beginning of the Rich Kids Collection.

“I uploaded a picture of the finished wig and install on my Instagram and it immediately took off, going viral within minutes. I began to get inquiries from all over the country, from parents whose daughters experienced hair loss,” she said.

Today, Davison is expanding her business to offer more charitable services for children who have lost their hair.

“My mission is to boost confidence and self-esteem by providing quality kid-friendly hair replacement systems and support for children who have lost hair due to alopecia, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, burns and other medical issues.”

In honor of Childhood Cancer Month, Davison has organized a Kids Explosion, concluding her ‘Kids Wig Hair’ tour.

“I toured to 10 different cities in the country, from April to July, styling and giving away kid-friendly wigs to girls ages 3-18,” she said. “Each young lady, with help from their guardian, emailed me, enabling their participation. I then picked one young lady in each city to be crowned queen.”

“The Kids Explosion is a celebration for all of the young ladies who won, in their perspective cities,” she said. “All of the winners are coming to Memphis to be crowned.”

“We’re going to put on a big show for them!”

The Kids Explosion will be exactly what its title suggests: a celebration and awareness for the young ladies, but also for many local kidpreneurs, young models, dancers and artists.

“It’s going to be a fashion show, many giveaways, live performances, kid-friendly vendors, music and special guest,” Davison said.

The explosion will be hosted Sept. 21 by Markenaaa and CurlyHeadMonty at The Ace Arena.

Tickets are $10 and all proceeds will be donated to help bring awareness to childhood cancer. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/kids-explosion-tickets-63480180930?aff=ebdssbdestsearch.

Leading up to the Kids Explosion, Davison has two other events raising money and bringing awareness to Childhood Cancer Month.

On Saturday, there will be a Kids Explosion Car Wash at the Chick-fil-A on Winchester Road and on Friday, Sept. 13, there will be a Kids Explosion Skate Night at East End Skating Rink.
