Natural Hair Brunch Affair L.A.
That sense of electricity only got more charged when Felicia Leatherwood, celebrity natural hairstylist, icon, and expert educator, entered the room. Her radiant smile and words of affirmation are forever etched in our minds. We were so pleased to have Jessica Pettiway (@jfashiongirl87) join us as well, as she had been a major advocate for us to bring the brunch to the West Coast. The support from our fellow bloggers was incredible as well, we look forward to returning the favor at their events in the near future.
Our partner, Casandra Rosario CEO/Founder of FoodBeforeLove.com, worked with the staff at Madera Kitchen to provide the type of stellar brunch experience for which the Natural Hair Brunch Affair is known.
Our guests were pampered royally by our presenting sponsor Lottabody, who gifted each attendee with the full line of their Lottabody Coconut and Shea Oil products, a comb set, and a satin scarf. We also were pleased to offer our guests signature items from Tropic Isle Living, Naturally Supreme, and Boy Beads.
Seanna-Kaye interviewed our guests and discovered some great styling in a variety of textures and non-stop creativity. Shalleen-Kaye, the one and only #NHDCStyleQueen, provided a tour-exclusive tutorial in how she uses the 5-in-1 Miracle Styling Creme and the Curl and Style Milk from Lottabody Coconut and Shea Oil line to create one of her signature looks. Even though we now know the inside scoop we still can’t believe how she creates such unique styles so effortlessly.
One time for the incredible natural lighting in L.A.! And you know what happens when good natural light and gussied up naturalistas meet: break out the selfie sticks people, it’s picture time!
Even though the success of the sold-out L.A. stop has us singing “I’m going,-going back-back to Cali-Cali we have to turn our attention to our next stop and we invite you to join us in Montego Bay, Jamaica on Sunday October 25, 2015. That stop will be very special to us, as we were born in Jamaica. In the meantime, please visit our Facebook Page for more pictures from #NaturalHairBrunchAffairLA!
Los Angeles, California was the second stop on the 2015 Natural Hair Brunch Affair Tour and we are still California Dreaming! As all the Cali Naturalistas began to enter Madera Kitchen, we smiled broadly watching the other guests pause mid-bite to cast admiring glances at our attendees. There was no mistaking it, something special was happening. * Click the pictures to view our slideshow.
