it's been a long time since iv'e blogged on either of my blogs and I truly miss it.
I hope everyone reading this is doing well, and continuing on their healthy hair journey.
I wanted to blog several times, this summer but between working full time, modeling the boys
and starting a new relationship, I bearly had any time on my hands=(
everything seems to be calming down a bit, so I'm ready to get back in to the swing of things =)
So where do i start....well i did quite a few runway and hair shows this spring and summer
let me start by telling ya'll some of these hair shows were a trip, i had a blast but my hair went through a lot, with that being said I also learned alot as well.
what i couldn't believe was how many white folks were literately obsessed and loving my natural hair.
I had other white models tell me that they wish we could switch hair textures for one day lol.
i had white hair stylist, dang near argue over who would do my hair in several shows.
it amazed me how many other races were intrigued and genuinely loved my hair.
unfortunately we still face ridicule from Some people the balck community,
hence the Gabby Douglas situation....
if i can stress one thing to any black hair stylist PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE
learn to take care of and style natual hair clients.
other races are capitalizing on natural hair and learning how to take care of OUR
hair textures, one stylist told me he had to learn to do natural hair when he realized turning away black women was hurting his pockets. i felt where he was coming from, and he hooked my hair up!
he's about his money and what ever he needed to learn about black natural hair, he learned and learned fast, he is willing to take on any hair texture, hence why he is making great money at his salon.
In the month of june i did a hair show for mizani. it was an all day affair -____-
i wasn't feeling the twisting of my hair in a bunch of small twist, the stylist was kind of rough
and their products left a bunch of white residue in my hair. lets just say i washed it all out the very next day, the look just wasn't for me, but it was nice to see what i would have looked like with
sister locks lol.
I'm gonna post a few pics from a few hair shows that i did this summer. With the exception of
the miziani show, everyone who styled my hair was white and they all did a wonderful job
i was happy to see that they weren't scared to take on the challenge of my natural hair!
i made some great connections, this summer it felt good to get back on the runway after all theses
