Leila Noelliste, creator of the “Black Girl with Long Hair” blog, was thrilled to host the festival for the second year in a row. “Once again, I was amazed by all of the beautiful women and their stunning natural styles,” said Noelliste. “The natural hair community in Chicago is really thriving and everyone had a great time at the event.”

From mini-afros to bold braids, these Chi-Town sistahs and their standout styles are on point!
