This year the bestie and I hosted our first International Natural Hair Meetup Day event in our town Jackson, Tn. It was alot of hard work but I can honestly say that our mission was accomplished. We met so many beautiful natural bellas and we were very pleased to see how many actually existed in our area. We made sure our ladies were enriched in each area of their lives by offering workshops such as ” Enhancing Your Natural Beauty” with MUA Sheila Nixon who taught our naturalistas how to go from an everyday face to an evening face in no time. Dr. Timothy Glenn, life coach/life mentor expounded upon the true power behind the phrase “If you believe it, you can achieve it,” by explaining to the ladies that in order to be successful and show up in their own lives they must deal with the unconscious parts of themselves that are sabotaging their goals. Next, Betty Tignor of Naturally Herbs taught the ladies how to use natural Chinese methods to help them live a healthy life. Lastly, Takeisha Berry-Brooks owner and stylist of A Natural Affair Beauty Lounge answered all of the burning questions the ladies had about their natural hair.
We also had vendors that sold amazing products and ended the event with an awesome giveaway by some pretty cool sponsors! I am so excited to see what comes of this experience and after all of the long sleepless nights and burning eyes from staring at my computer screen, I can’t wait to do it all over again! Check out our recap video of the event:
As I stated in my last post, I attended the World Natural Hair Show in the ATL. this past weekend. Prior to Natural Girls Rock had their Anniversary Party the Friday before the hair show and I couldn’t wait to attend! My friends and I purchased the VIP tickets and had an excellent view!
The party took place at the Posh and Trendy Tongue and Groove lounge.
Many beautiful naturals came out to celebrate NGR’ s anniversary.
There were 2 bars and let me just say these bartenders were great at their jobs…no seriously.
The entertainment consisted of Delonda Harvey singing her popular song “Good Enough,” body art, and a fabulous fashion show!
There were contests for Best TWA and Best Twist out styles. My friends and I participated…we didn’t win lol.
I bet you can tell who won? Lol
Bestie trying for best Twistout.
Even though we didn’t win, we did get complimentary NGR t-shirts and that was just fine with me since I had my eye on a particular shirt the entire time. I had a really great time and I met some wonderful naturals and fellow bloggers (shout out to April from the Cocoa Report and Yolanda from CurlyandLovely). I definitely will keep an eye out for their next event.
