Read Our Live Chat on Natural Hair

In the past year, recording artists Chrisette Michele and Solange Knowles have both shaved their heads to get back to their roots. Other artists like Janelle Monae, Leela James, Ledisi and Shingai Shoniwa and their lovely locks are popping up everywhere. It's safe to say that more and more of us are embracing our natural hair. On Wednesday June 23, we gathered together some big names in hair for a Live Chat on Natural Hair. The chat included Tippi Shorter, who has worked her magic on the tresses of Diahann Carroll, Beyonce, Jada Pinkett Smith and Alicia Keys, Hair Architect Keith Campbell (who touches up Traci Ellis Ross and Chrisette Michele) plus, ESSENCE.com Hair and Beauty Editor Tia Williams -- and we've mixed in a few celebs that have recently made the chop -- Grammy Award winner Chrisette Michele and model/actress/TV Personality Bre Scullark (formerly of "ANTM").
