The Most Marvelous Manes From The 2017 Natural Hair Academy Conference 

Thousands of Black women gathered in Paris this past weekend to celebrate their natural hair and undeniable beauty.

For the past six years the Natural Hair Academy has created a conference for Black women (with a few men and children also sprinkled in) to gather in celebration of our natural beauty…and more specifically, natural hair. The event  — which hosted approximately 4,000 people — always takes place in Paris, France and is both fun and informative. From tutorials to product testing, there is so much to see and do. 

I had the pleasure of speaking on a panel at the conference, but before hitting the stage I was able to capture the beauty of some of the women who were in attendance. Here’s a look at some of my favorite moments!
