On May 21 it’s International Natural Hair Meet-Up Day (INHMD)! This day was created to encourage black women to celebrate their natural hair. This year, I’ve been asked to speak on a panel to discuss style and rocking your natural hair. It’s an important conversation! Plus, I do write a natural hair blog, Natural in Nashville. Even though I’m not a licensed cosmetologist, I can connect you to the right resources.
Why is the discussion of personal style and hair so important? Because, allowing your curly, coily, or kinky hair free (when you are used to wearing it straight) can be a hard for some women to deal with. I mean, it’s a total change of style. Plus, there’s such a stigma when women, especially black women, start taking pride in the bodies they were born in. Our confidence can be hit hard.
So attending a natural hair meet-up is a good way to increase your confidence when learning a new style. You can see other women rocking their various styles, learn new techniques, and even buy new products. It’s one of the best events you can attend.
Of course, I had to hook you up with some style inspiration for those attending a International Natural Hair Meet-Up event in their city. From classic to cute, these outfit inspirations are gonna have you looking real cute with you new fly hair! Hope to see you at the Nashville INHMD event.
I’m loving this cute casual look. If you aren’t a girl who wears heels, you can swap these out with a cute pair of sneakers. Of course, this is the perfect event to rock your favorite graphic tee. This one is from www.ownyourblackness.com. They have tons of cute tees with cool slogans on the front. Check them out.
This next look is so ON TREND – denim on denim is the way to be this spring. This look is great to rock to the INHMD event and then go to get a meal with your girls. And, yes, this head-wrap is a must for this year. Try it out.
Lastly, this chic look is for my flirty fashionistas. Again, INHMD is a great time to meet new women who are rocking their fly hair. You know we gotta look out best. Try this basic but chic look as you get ready to meet some new friend.
So, I hope to see you at INHMD Nashville event. Unfortunately, the event SOLD OUT. But you know I’ll have a review for you on Monday.
