Crown & Glory Meetup
Last week I went to a spectacular meetup and had a blast. It felt great to be surrounded by women with hair that looks like mine-a hard feat here in Barbie Land.
We were greeted with chilled wine, cheese, and fruit. Yes, we were fancy *sticks pinkie out*
There were around 25 of us, some natural for years, some newbies, and some transitioning. We even had a few relaxed ladies present. But everyone had one thing in common: we were there to discuss natural hair.
We talked about everything from products to common misconceptions to men and their feelings about our hair. I met a ton of good people and look forward to seeing them again.
I’ll be posting about some of our topics soon, but for now just enjoy the pics
Our gracious host Laura. Isn’t she fierce? You can follow her and all of her fabolosity at her blog, Elle Wise.
Two more lovelies, one natural and one transitioning.
I can’t remember this beauty’s name, but she has been natural for seven years, longer than anyone else at the meetup.
My girl Lenee. She used to have a fly short relaxed ‘do. She’s since cut it all down and is rocking this. Don’t let the waves makes you sick lol
Bailey was the newest natural with us, @ a week if I remember correctly. You can see she still some straight ends mixed in there.
This woman is transitioning; you can see some gorgeous texture peeking through.
If you’re looking to uncover your passion or simply need a guideline for life, certified Life Coach Nailah Blades is the woman to contact. Her business, Polka Dot Coaching, helps clients find, follow, and make the most of their true calling. She and I were the only two dreads present.
And here’s Rema, looking like an African princess. Who says natural hair isn’t versatile?
