Hosted by Naturally Curly and Miss Jessie’s
April 25, 2010, Naturally Curly and Miss Jessie’s hosted their first ever Natural Hair Celebration in Austin, TX. It was actually Titi and Miko Branch’s first time to visit the great state of Texas. My fellow Texans wowed the Miss Jessie’s Owners with the vast number and variety of naturalistas. Ladies travelled from San Antonio, Dallas and Houston like myself and my road dog, Lorece (Thanks again, girly. I had fun!) to participate in this great event. We were welcomed into Avenue Five Institute beauty school with open arms to check in and receive a souvenir bag.
As Titi described their work at Miss Jessie’s and answered questions from the audience about all kinds of hair issues, Miko styled the hair of five models with different hair textures to show the many uses for Miss Jessie’s products. The styles included an roller set as a transitioning style, dry braid out which the lovely Natural Chica modeled (see below), finger styling on two different types of hair (Kabrina wave and curly).
This event provided a venue where the natural ladies from the city of Austin, surround cities as well as out of state, like You tube vlogger, Joy Mignon the opportunity to meet & greet as well as to learn new styling techniques for the summer time. It was great to meet the ladies in person. They were all so sweet. I had the opportunity to introduce myself to Natural Hair Blues herself Courtney of You Tube No Lye Just Curls. You may have seen her video on Natural Hair Rules!!! Facebook. See again here. There was a special treat for all the product junkies, a fully stocked Curl Mart with the entire line of Miss Jessie’s products including the newer Super Sweetback Treatment.
Titi and Miko were very personable and responsive to all the questions and natural hair woes of the group. The attendance was phenomenal. I hope the ladies felt love and at home. We got get these girls to Houston. *Hint, hint*
Thanks again Naturally Curly and Miss Jessie’s.
