Event description


Hello Ladies, welcome to the fourth edition of Let’s Meet up series. This time around we want to talk about Black Hair and all its versality and beauty. During a recent conversation with Chanel Adams of GlamMaverick, and the creator of the Soul to Sole Prom Shoe Drive we realized this discussion was needed. Although we love the natural hair movement, in my mind opinion it does not define what Black Hair is, Black hair is so much more because we can do so much more. Having been natural twice in my life (post childhood) I went thru the time it was shamed with only two products on the shelves. Then when there was an economic boom and everything on the shelve. Chanel never perming her hair but straightening has experienced a different side of having to prove her natural hair texture.

Chanel and I decided to team up to have an open discussion. We have sought out some of the best stylists in the NYC area to have a panel discussion on Our Hair Journey and the Versality of Black Hair. Some of the topics discussed but not limited to:

How is Black Hair defined?

What is Healthy hair?

What is proper care for your hair regardless of permed or natural?

Is there perm shaming, or pressure to change your hair if not natural?

How can we unify all black women in loving our hair choices?
