We all need encouragement from time to time - whether on the natural hair journey or in life. And we all will be faced with the temptation to quit. I can't tell you how many times I hear people that consider giving up on their goals. But here's why you shouldn't stop pursuing them: http://youtu.be/RtqfwWf6IRs … [Read More...]
Every now and then, I like to feature some pictures which show where I am and where I've been. Come, journey with me back in time. I'll begin right with the latest pic of me with my jumbo twists leading into spring and go back a few months. I felt like a bear coming out of hibernation with this look. It was smoking (I've taken it down now) and maintenance free. But, since my hair loves … [Read More...]

We're just a few days shy of spring and I must admit, I was itching for change. And did I get it. I took a recent trip to the hairdresser. Birmingham natural hair stylist Leslie Blakely took her time and created her signature jumbo flat twist style and I am well pleased. I've been very honest about the fact that I'd rather do my own hair, rather than go to a stylist, but everyone needs a … [Read More...]
This event has never been held before. But it will be #epic for Birmingham's natural hair community. We are hosting a red carpet affair in May - on my birthday to be exact! I want to celebrate with my closest friends. Really the celebration though is about the women who've forged new territory by wearing their natural hair, across various professions and walks of life. This is for you … [Read More...]
With a change of season right around the corner, many of us are contemplating making subtle changes to our natural hair. Well, here's one style I've fallen back in love with again. It involves an old favorite - the two strand twist - combined with a new item - the Bantu knot! You can do it too. Enjoy! http://youtu.be/XpPxxHsmt28 … [Read More...]

I began taking chances with color and length. I wanted to experiment with styles and colors. And it worked. I also started going to a professional natural hair stylist - Carlee Farmer of Hayah Beauty in downtown … [Read More...]
