Who is Anji? Indianapolis native, Angie Bigbee, is an artist and a self-proclaimed natural hair care guru. She is a licensed barber with a passion for natural hair. Anji acknowledges that for many people, learning to accept their hair it its natural state is a spiritual process that often entails "a natural journey in time." For 12 years, she has been guiding her clients through the process of reconnecting with their natural tresses. She takes pride in her ability to skillfully guide her clients through their own natural journeys, no matter where they start or desire to go with their tresses - whether it's wearing natural tresses freely, transitioning from chemicals or initiating locs. As an artist, she creates and forms styles and applies color that is uniquely suited to the individual. Equally as important, she educates her clients about the proper care and maintenance of their beautiful natural hair and locs. Anji's artistry has been featured on the runways of several shows and she has worked with many other talented artists.

About the Event Organizer, Felicia Yvette
This will be Felicia's third annual natural hair event in Indianapolis. She noticed that the natural hair population was growing and that there were no events catering to it. In 2010, she heard about celebrity natural hair stylist Felicia Leatherwood from Los Angeles and her Loving Your Hair With Natural Care Workshop. Felicia Yvette worked tirelessly to bring that event to Indianapolis in May of 2011. The event went so well that everyone asked for another one. In July of 2012, she brought natural hair expert, Alecia Tucker (known as AfrosNBabyHair), from Chicago.
